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.
lovely atmosphere, a bit pricey but enjoyed the variety of food. Very busy, impressed with timing of food which kept the staff on their toes, they appeared to be under the pump with them racing around. Loved the choice of gin!
Fantastic food and friendly and professional service
Incredible food and great service, all staff were genuinely happy to help which made contributed to a great atmosphere.
As a staff, we love Atticus Finch and the style of dining they offer. We all get to taste everything in a relaxed and non-pressured environment. Well recommended.
We had a selection of starters. Really well presented and fabulous flavours. Friendly and attentive waiting staff.
Great food and reasonably priced. One of the best restaurants we’ve tried in New Zealand (and definitely the best in Rotorua).
Great restaurant, delicious food!
Splendid food and service. Highly recommended.
Food was delicious and our waitress was lovely. It would have been nice if there was a box or something to tick on the online reservation form to say if was a special occasion as it was our 5th wedding anniversary and being seated so close to the toilets wasn’t exactly romantic.
Food was fantastic and served in perfect timing, the staff attentive and on hand at all times. The only element that didn’t quite hit the spot for us were drinks with a lack lustre Rose and flavourless cider, however that’s just our personal taste so not a negative on Atticus.
The food was good, however it was a warm day for New Zealand, 30deg and unfortunately we were seated inside for dinner. The air conditioning wasn’t very good so we were uncomfortably hot during our meal.
An exceptional meal that exceeded my expectations of vegan options. And loved the service we received! 10/10!! Will definitely be back.
The. Small plates of squid and the fried halloumi were terrific. The seasonings and greens on both were wonderful
Great service and good food couldn’t ask for much more. Efficient effective and friendly team .
A good menu to choose from, food and service was great.
Wonderful food. Great selection for gluten free.
Never fails to please and is a cut above any other restaurant we have been to.
Loved the seperate vegan menu. Saves us vegans time having to grill your staff on what vegetarian options can be made vegan!
Lovely food, wine list could be a bit wider.
Great food and great atmosphere!!!
Food was delicious. Everything we ordered was excellent. Only one recommendation: the food came out very quickly. Would be nice to slow it down just a bit.
It was our second time visiting Atticus Finch. Everything was perfect in our meal, except for the squid which could have done with a tiny bit longer to get the batter nice and crispy. We had the small share plates of calamari, prawns and halloumi salad, and large share plates of lamb and chilli chicken. Atticus is a must see (must eat!) while in Rotorua.
The staff were very helpful. We went with the waitress’s suggestion of 4 small and only 3 large plates for our group of four - this was perfect, allowing us to squeeze in a shared sweet. All the food was served with impeccable timing, and everything that we had chosen was extremely delicious and well presented. Our Italian guests were just as impressed as we were. Will definitely recommend Atticus Finch to all our friends, and we’ll be back again.
