About Atticus Finch
Atticus Finch is Rotorua’s only Mediterranean Rim alfresco dining experience.
Atticus Finch is situated in the middle of “Eat Streat”, taking advantage of the geothermal under floor heating of the concrete outside, retractable awning and covered walkway.
Our menu is designed to share, a selection of dishes that allow a series of tastes to be passed around and enjoyed together. Our food is fresh, innovative, flavoursome and made from scratch.
Our cocktails celebrate intrinsic flavours from fresh seasonal ingredients and are made with our own syrups, fresh fruit and herbs.
Estrella on tap, local craft beers and a selection of wine by the glass make Atticus Finch a place to enjoy platters of tasty morsels while sitting in the afternoon sun.
A perfect night out in Rotorua whilst holidaying!
Food order was speedy and food was good. Service staff were good. She then asked if we wanted dessert. During dessert one of my guests noted 2 large black hairs in her peanut butter mereinge dish. It took a long time to get the watresses' attention. But when we did she said she would take away and inform the kitchen. She also offered to bring a new dessert but my guest declined, as she was put off and we were now running late. We waited and waited but the waitress never returned. Eventually we got tired of waiting so went to the til ourselves to pay. Nothing was mentioned about the hair in the food by any staff, no apology, no offer of a complimentary glass of wine. Rather the cheque was presented, but the contaminated dessert was not charged, which was good. Overall, a poor customer service as there was never any personal follow up for my guest's meal being effectively ruined and no further communication by the restaurant, or by the waitress who took the dessert away. Very disappointing end to what would have been a great experience. Please try harder to improve customer communication.
Food is always great. Textures and flavours always excite the palate. Keeps me coming back. Great vegetarian and vegan options for me. Big thumbs up. Thanks guys.
Once again we enjoyed a fantastic dinner at Atticus Finch, my favourite restaurant on Eat Street. Excellent service, delicious food, beautifully presented.
Fabulous dining experience!
This was a delicious meal and a very pleasant moment.
Excellent service, attentive and responsive without being over bearing. Simple and efficient booking system. Tasty, well-presented food, quantities exactly right and all clearly explained by our wait staff. My only complaint is that cigarette smoke from Sobar next door drifts into the excellent smoke-free outdoor dining area. Some more permanent divider between the two would make a huge difference.
Excellent gluten free selection, and our children were made to feel welcome. It was a wonderful night, thank you!
Great night out, beautiful food and amazing, friendly service!!!!!
Fantastic. Loved the pulled pork roti!
Very quick service. Extremely enjoyable meal.
Nice relaxed dinning experience with thoughtful wait staff and prompt service
We really love coming to atticus as Sean and his team are awesome, Great food and banter as well! My wife is so happy you cater for Vegans to!!! Really a no brainer to recommend your awesome restaurant. :)
Excellent staff, wonderful food equals a most enjoyable evening thank you.
Great food and service. We will be back. Have already sung your praises to others. I am the chef at home as I am saddled with "dairy free "requirements etc. Did a version of your dishes tonight. Great inspiration.
We came here for a birthday dinner and were not disappointed! Delicious food and great service
very enjoyable way to have a meal, and we had a space that was quiet enough to have a conversation without effort. Food is very good and wait staff are friendly and down-to-earth
best meal we had in Rotorua! dishes were well portioned and had wonderful flavours, service was lovely. We will be back!
A very welcoming restaurant. The menu is varied & interesting. All the sharing dishes we ordered looked lovely & tasted delicious. Friendly staff provided a seamless service.
Been twice in the last month. Stunning food - flavours that have your tastebuds screaming out for more and very good value. The service and interaction with staff very good. The magicians in the kitchen should get accolades.
I have said this before....this is the bedt restaurant in Rotorua.....we have booked again next week and will be bringing other friends to experience what we know is already awesome.
We had a wonderful evening @ Atticus Finch, with great food and a lovely service!
Came with a group of 8 food was exceptional as were the drinks and service. Always love coming to Atticus Finch. The whole group was very impressed with how the food came out in such a timely fashion
A most excellent evening of wonderful, tasty food & wine. The Manager Sean, a fellow Scot, runs a very tight ship. The service was fantastic with all staff multitasking in an extremely efficient way. Well done! John & Anne from Lanark,Scotland 👍😁🏴
