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!
Superb service , good atmosphere and great food , highly recommended to all . Thanks Jono
Fantastic food, the flavours, combinations, top marks. Great staff.
The food was terrible. It was really an awful experience. Our salads had rotten leaves and instead of a burratta they sent us a poached egg without saying anything. The meat we could’nt eat. It had a strange texture. We felt ripped off.
Delighted with the venue and great staff and food. A1+++
I'm a local and it's always awesome dining experience @ terrace ,.dessert is amazing! My kind of place to chill out even for a coffee!👌❤
Wonderful service, staff were attentive and helpful. Beautiful food. Woukd definitely recommend. Will be back!
Amazing food and cocktails
We held a function with approx 50 people upstairs in the Tonic Bar. The shared platters were beautiful and the service fantastic. Staff were friendly and accomodating. We will be back!! Thanks team!
Thank you so much for a fabulous dining experience. The meal was delicious and beautifully presented. The service was prompt and the staff were friendly and attentive.
The service was absolutely amazing, the staff made us feel like family and catered for twice the amount that I originally thought were coming (24 total) the food is a little bland and the menu didn’t have many options, the most delicious part was the caramel they used for the churros! Was a bit disappointed that the vegan menu only had 1 option aswell (it was yum though) I absolutely loved the atmosphere super chill, the staff were caring and catered to everybody individually especially the older guests who needed a run through the menu. Thank you will definitely dine again but maybe try the breakfast or lunch menu instead.
Amazing food and great interior, but took a long time to get our food
Loved that we could bring our dog to join friends for lunch. Service was top notch, atmosphere, meals and drinks excellent. Only (very slight) disappointment was no dark beers available. Have recommended to others already.
Excellent food and cocktails. Friendly waiting staff. Picnic lunch the next day was also very good. Would definitely return and/or book a meal to go next time we're in Rotorua.
It was just wonderful. The place itself is great, the staff are lovely, the food is incredible! You should all be proud of this amazing place.
Best mother fucking ribs I ever fucking had. 100% fucking want them again!
We came as a group with kids and the staff were so friendly and attentive, even though the kids were quite loud and active (it was raining outside so they couldn’t use the outdoor play area). The food is delicious and we really enjoyed our evening at the restaurant. I would definitely recommend going here and if we come back to Rotorua we will make sure to stop by again.
Don't waste your time and money coming to Terrace Kitchen. The food was very basic and bland considering how much you would pay for. The customer service is lacking. The seats were uncomfortable. I will never return.
Refreshing gin cocktails, beautiful plating and fantastic food. Only let down was the surcharge imposed if you pay with a credit card. That dwindled the dining experience.
We made an online booking 24hours in advance, we turned up at the correct time and date and was told there was no booking! This was quite a worry as it was a special event. Thankfully there was a spare table and we could enjoy a lovey meal. I won’t be making an online booking again.
Absolutely fabulous evening, gorgeous venue & food/drink was amazing! Best work Xmas function we’ve ever had! 👍👍
We were all extremely happy with our experience - the booking process was painless, the service and food were fantastic. I would definitely book again for another function!
I have been here on many occasions and recommend it to my friends, the service and food were just the best...
Lovely meal but could have had a wee bit more variety on menu and entree. Lovely food but the selection wasn’t great .
Great meal, great service (Thanks Scobie) and good atomsphere.
