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!

Thank you for placing my booking for 9 people (only 8 attended for the booking) at the large concrete table outside so we could dine together and enjoy the good weather on the day. I really enjoyed the meal that I ordered as I am vegan and Terrace Kitchen menu options catered to my eating requirements. I do worry about this, as usually I end up with just a plain "thrown together" leafy green salad. A couple more vegan options would be great to see on you menu. I ordered the Bao Buns (made with mushrooms) and roasted vegetables from the specials menu. The food was presented well and flavourful. We had 3 staff waitng on our table. One took orders and 2 others delivered the food to our table. The service from the male staff was friendly and fast. He was very prompt in following up with our queries i.e.: how long will the meals be? and paid genuine attention to us when we spoke to him. I appreciate how the staff cater to taking orders for 2 of our party that arrived late and had not hassle in taking their orders. Their food they ordered arrive not long after the bulk of the group receive their food. Another person in our party had specific dietary requirements that limits her food choices and one of the wait staff members was able to follow up in to see if your option to have just a serving of eggs could be catered to, outside of the breakfast menu hours. Thank you for catering to her dietary needs. There was one of the female staff that was waiting our table that seemed to be stand offish or just served our food and walked off, but we think it may be due to cultural difference. All staff front of house were friendly and had smiles, which makes a difference I think, when out dining. As well left the restaurant we were able to quickly pay with no hassle and commented to each other the lovely dinning space we had and the dishes that we ordered and enjoyed eating. Well done staff both front of house, chefs and other kitchen staff for the good service and good food.

I came with my guests from California. They thoroughly enjoyed the meals, we all had different dishes and all were really good. Good portions especially the Pork Ribs. Excellent service, Cullen the waiter was very attentive and professional in his interaction with diners. Great service throughout, very attentive in wine service too. Love the atmosphere and quiet ambience. Will visit soon with family, taking them for a treat. Excellent cuisine and very well presented. Thank you for a very enjoyable evening.

We visit Rotorua annually in the school holidays and we always go to Terrace Kitchen. The food is always excellent, as is the coffee and friendly but unintrusive service. Thanks guys!

We used their upstairs private space for an early morning meeting for 8 people which was perfect. Great coffee, we didn't eat but menu looked yum. Relaxed decor, modern spaces and attentive staff. Thanks.
