My students felt very comfortable, they thoroughly enjoyed their meal, it was an experience for them. Thank you to the staff rostered on 5/12/19 (breakfast shift), kind regards Miria...
Had a great evening, staff were friendly and welcoming. Only concerns were that plate clearing was slightly slow, crab was thawed from frozen and lacked flavour and was a bit dry, and same with the cake deserts, they were also dry and not as fresh as they could have been. Other than that the selection was great, nice surroundings and a really memorable night for our parents 50th wedding anniversary.
We travel down from Hamilton a couple of times a year to dine at Atlas. Your good is awesome and your staff members are consistently excellent.
Loved the special wee touches to help celebrate our wedding. Thank you.
We love coming there for dinner whenever we are in Rotorua
Everything about our dinner was stunning, food, service, ambiance just EVERYTHING!!! Hands up to you Novotel Rotorua/Atlas Restaurant. Thank you for an awesome night.
Nice service salad and seafood bar except for the table of 50 that always seemed to get up before us ordering meat and with them it was over and over again. We never caught a break and some of the meat ran out.would not recommend going with a table of hungry hungy 50 people on same night. Plus lots of kids running around after dinner.
Always enjoy eating here.
1) Nice and relaxing to dine. 2) The chips came with steak sandwich were not appealing, as they looked as if scooped the last leftovers. 3) The garden pizza was very nice and tasty. I can come back to it again but the steak sandwich did not look as good as some others we tried. 4) Limited selections for lunch menu.
Great food, great service. Thank you
Great customer service It was a wonderful warm for my kids the table setting was beautifully set with a candle. The waitress was polite and checked on us frequently. The ox tail was divine. All the food i tried was superb it was an amazing experience for Father’s Day.I will definitely be coming back and telling my friends and family to try it for themselves.
We are members of Accor and have dined in many of their restaurants. This is worse experience we have had. Dirty glasses, poor service, got our order wrong, no dessert menu. We will not be recommending to dine here and we will not go back. Very disappointing
Most staff members friendly and helpful, food was lovely just wish was topped up abit quicker was waiting a while for food to be topped up other then that washes at would definitely come back again
It wasn’t clear when I booked online that the buffet wasn’t on at lunch. Even the description on this website about when buffet is on isn’t correct. We decided to come back later in the day -Sunday night for the buffet. Seafood selection good, grill excellent. Vegetable options to go with hot food poor- boiled potatoes and carrots thrown in a bowl. Having the serve yourself hot food and the order point for grill plus the kitchen entry all in the same place is messy. Desserts good. Thought it was a bit over the top to insist on seeing my parents Gold cards for $5 senior discount- they are in their nineties. Missed opportunity to do something themed for Father’s Day.
Beautiful kai, fantastic service
Delicious food, beautiful atmosphere, awesome staff, The meat chef is a legend Wow the seafood selection was absolutely delicious
I booked this venue well over a week before the date required, after having such a wonderful experience down in the Queenstown Novotel. We thought we would make a special trip over from Taupo . When we came for dinner, there was no such booking for us? It was a special occasion for my wife's birthday. I mentioned it was her birthday in my booking,and, required seating close to the buffet. None of my requests were honored.Most of the food was tasteless, the meat station was a joke!!The chef just didn't want to be there. There was a line of people with their "HOT" food on their plates waiting for their meats to be cooked. That meat station should be pumping. I think the "chef" was dressed to impress ... certainly didn't impress!!. Most of the hot foods were warm. The sushi looked old. The desserts were disgusting! My wife is a chef, and a real food critic, she knows her stuff!. We certainly will be spreading the word and will never be back in your presence. Extremely disappointing to say the least!!
We come here every year for my birthday. The service and food is awesome. The only thing I would comment on, is that people staying in the hotel need to be let known that they need to book early to avoid disappointment with availability (found out last year) Great restaurant, highly recommended it.
The food was wonderful,the paying experience was awesome. The whole experience was amazing
Sorry to be honest with you we were really disappointed with our meals. The meat that was cooked on hot plate was very hot and miss. Sometimes we were questioning what meat we were eating and if it was what we ordered. The staff were lovely but seem to be running and doing a lot of different jobs for example the staff member on hot plate was cooking the meat and running back and forth to the kitchen putting more food out. Leaving the hot plate unattended. Small children could of easily gone in their and touches the plate! For a high end restaurant we came away feeling really unsatisfied. Which was a really same with a big group.
Not much section of food especially for children so had to end up spending more money afterwards on children's tea
More hot vegeterian options please.
