About Terrace Kitchen
Terrace Kitchen is a relaxed all-day eatery with an open plan kitchen serving up a modern, innovative menu. The décor is light and fresh; a series of intimate spaces seamlessly linked together. Expect light-filled rooms, natural timbers, white marble, green leafy plants and a monochromatic colour palette spiked with subtle hues of pink.
Inspired by the legendary hospitality shown to visitors who journeyed to see the Pink and White Terraces in the 1800’s, Terrace Kitchen pays homage further, with a diverse melting pot of international staff and a shared plates dinner menu – guests can even dine under the stars whilst warming their toes on the thermally heated concrete terrace overlooking the lawn.
The hub of this special place is its open plan kitchen and at the heart, of course, it’s all about the food. Smoked, baked, roasted, fried or just picked from the onsite garden – it’s all made with love on the premises by an international team of culinary professionals. Foodies can dine ringside at the long oak counter overlooking the action centrestage – the Terrace Kitchen hotline!
Cocktail of the day (smoked mojito) was amazing and I loved the bartenders enthusiasm for cocktails. Food was a little slow to come out (I had to remind about our platters we had ordered as everyone was getting hungry) and attentiveness to water and extra drink orders could have been better but staff were friendly and food was great!
Such a cool place, loved the fit out and the whole atmosphere of the restaurant. Thoroughly enjoyed our meals - definitely want to come back and try the dinner menu sometime!
Your chicken is out of this world 😍😍😍
Great food and service. Lovely to be offered complimentary sparkling water
Amazing food and great service. Was a Monday night, so a bit quiet, but otherwise wonderful decor and convenient location
We all had a great time for my Dad's 70th. We had a great private area where we could relax and enjoy our lunch. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the food, the service was amazing and it was very affordable. Highly recommend.
The king fish I had was still raw in the middle.
The food and service were excellent. We had a great evening, thank you.
We had a fantastic breakfast and dinner at Terrace Kitchen. Staff went out of their way to accommodate our fussy children and it is by far the best interior design fit out in Rotorua! Food was delicious and impeccably presented. Would recommend everyone to visit.
Faultless service. Amazing and beautiful food. Loved it - breakfast and dinner! That muesli - wow!
Deelijke en smaakvolle gerechten, aangenaam interieur, maar mocht wat warmer zijn binnen !
Food and cocktails were amazing! Would highly recommend to anyone in Rotorua.
Ordered the Risotto expecting it to be a risotto, and it was a baked aranchini ball. Very disappointed to spend $32 on a dry rice dish. Also had the pork belly which was dry and overcooked. The $8 vegetables were no more than a quartered brussel sprout and two sprigs of broccolini. Service was friendly, but when we spoke to the waitress to advise of the issues, she just kept saying sorry, sorry, sorry when we were tryign to give feedback and not really taking what we were saying on board or passing back to the kitchen. The restaurant is beautiful and should have everything going for it, but sadly misses the mark.
Awesome restaurant, not the best for a large group though. As some had to wait for a while.
Definitely a place to relax and enjoy your meal, just great
Excellent food and service, everyone enjoyed their meal, worked well booking our meal in advance for our big group, thanks so much!
The setting is great, clean open and contemporary. Appreciated the round table for a larger group meant we could have a shared conversation. Tasty interesting meals that catered to the whole group, generous portions. Friendly welcoming service.
Not the best atmosphere for a cold wet winter night. Very much a summer venue. However food very innovative look forward to returning in summer. Maybe install a lovely blazing gas log fire?
Absolutely amazing food and service We are going to return!
Wine list could be extended.
Beautiful meal, excellent gluten free options, great service. Would definitely go back next time we are in Rotorua!
Excellent thank you
We enjoyed our lunch. There were eleven of us and we arrived early. Thanks heaps! We’ll be back.
Great food , great waitresses. Smokers should be allocated an area away from the front door smoke drifted through the dining area not that pleasant.
Great to have a nice place in rotorua. A couple of minors - I booked online for 6 and later edited it to 8. The booking remained at 6 (fortunately 2 people were unwell) The potato skins did not appear with rest of meal - we had to ask and then they were a bit overdone. Other than that - great ambiance, friendly service and good food!
