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!

Love the online booking process. Superb food with matched wines, attentive but not over the top service. Have never had a bad experience at Terrace Kitchen, recommend it highly!

We had a group booking for 25. We were terribly unhappy with the service, we waited over an hour and half for our food and watched others who arrived after us receive theirs, eat and leave before we even received our meals. They weren't all that great when we finally received them as well. A first time for many of our group and all were not impressed and have expressed that they will not be returning and letting others know as well. Very disappointed

Loved how the head chef personally delivered food to the tables, it provides a really positive and welcoming experience! Amazing expereince, however we only found this resturant because we could see chefs going into their homegrown garden from our hotel.

This time round the steak was great. The pasta looked great. Nice presentation however the flavour was weak, it wasn’t overly striking and left me with the feeling not wanting to order that again. It was lack lustre and offered no defining flavour and or taste. Everything else was good. Oh your servers need to work just one area of the room. We had two different serves each time come and ask us the same question. It was a little interrupting

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.

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.

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.

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.
