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!

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.

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.

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.
