About The Lula Inn

A south-Pacific eatery sitting right on the water, The Lula Inn has made waves with their relaxed vibe and iconic location. The neon signs and flora decor will have you feeling on island time, as will their bottomless brunch service. The menu focuses on the delicate flavours of the south-Pacific, intertwined with Kiwi classics such as their brûlée banana bread with whipped mascarpone.

The folks are friendly & _the good times just keep-on-keeping-on.

So settle in & while-away some island time. Enjoy the ebb & flow of craft beers, gin cheers, eats, treats & chats. And then, as the sun sets & darkness falls, when it all gets a bit louder, a lot livelier & much dancier — stay on & stay late.

Waitress was super lovely but at times we were waiting a bit for drinks to be re-filled. Food came out quick but there were no other vegan options aside from beans on toast which couldn’t be changed at all:( other meals looked okay but they have shortened the menu slightly.

Food was lovely - but we only got four drinks in the space of two hours, and it wasn't very busy! Our waiter was lovely tho - social and interactive when she did come over.

Second time being at the bottomless lunch. Great service and environment. The corn hash was very salty. 3 of us at the table found it very salty.

Overall happy with service and experience, however was disappointed about one thing. Our waitress was lovely, she took a photo for us in front of the ‘Lula’s’ sign, but had tripped over the step and dropped my friend’s phone - totally an accident, but the cards in her phone cover had fallen out, and her ID got lost. The ID fell through the cracks in the deck and into the ocean. Again, totally an accident and can’t be helped. But we wished that management would have been informed, because when we came back a couple hours later, we were refused service. We explained the situation of what happened earlier, I named the waitress just so they knew we were legitimate & even had the booking on my phone. My friend had a photo of her passport. But we were still refused. It was pretty unfortunate - understandable but it was something out of our control.

This is the third time I have been for the BOTTOMLESS dumplings and Prosecco. I have very much enjoyed the last two times I have been so decided to bring a few people to share the experience, we had various ages as we brought our grandparents. It was very disappointing. The service was terrible; it felt like our table was forgotten about. I understand needing to be a reasonable host but we definitely did not get served enough for the money we paid, we were not intoxicated and did not feel it was bottomless what so ever. whilst we were sitting at our table we noticed the table across from us (that had 3 girls) received 3 wine refills to our one. We continuously had to ask for service. we left the bottomless dumplings still hungry which is never something you expect after a bottomless experience. We then decided to order a drink once our time had run out because we didn’t have that much to drink and got told we had to wait 30 mins because we had just finished the bottomless dumplings. Needless to say we left.
