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.

We had booked a table for 6 for a “bottomless” chicken and waffles. We had an extra person show up as well. We had 6 plates of food to share between 7 of us - and halfway through you started sending smaller portions. You sent less than 7 pieces of chicken to the table so some of us only had waffles. Such a waste of $350.

Lovely table overlooking the boats. Food was good, especially the sticky date pudding and creme brûlée. Service was brilliant, all were very attentive especially Alex. The welcome when we arrived was very pleasant. I hear they have some great specials for group dining. So check them out.

We were well looked after. From changing tables, asking for the heaters to be turned down and getting some off the menu salad our experience was really good. Recommend cauliflower popcorn and steak. Pan fried fish looked scrumptious too. We will be back. Thank you for looking after us.

Our server Alex was awesome. She was friendly, professional and attentive. She was the best server we’ve had at bottomless brunch. She was always attentive but not in your face and allowed us time to chat and savour our food and beverages.

We arrived early but we’re tucked away in a small corner table. Service was poor - wrong wine brought out with no explanation,and when I raised this I was told the one I ordered wasn’t stocked so this was the replacement. However, I had ordered the loveblock Pinot gris as I’d had it before and enjoyed it and didn’t want a substitute. Food came out and was wrong, despite the server coming to our table twice to confirm order. She didn’t write it down which was probably the reason. Kids meal came 10 minutes after the rest of the food - not ideal as he was the hungry one. Food was average and cold. Generally I felt a lack of care and was disappointed as I have been for lunch before and found the food a service really good which was why I came back. I wouldn’t normally bother with a review but I received an email asking for my feedback.

Food portions were a bit small, and the service for non alcoholic drinks was very slow in comparison to the alcoholic drinks.

We've been a few times and always enjoyed the wonderful service and hospitality from lula, but this time we found our hostess to be slow. Took 15mins after we were seated to receive our first drink ... We had to constantly ask for a top of wine etc It became frustrating overall...

Had a great time. Table was not ready when we got there but super busy so understandable and they took that into consideration for our time. Could do with more staff we had Luke a guy with dark hair serving us he was great super friendly and great service from him but could see he had to serve all three/four tables as well he did a great job and juggled all well while keeping a good positive friendly attitude as well but could do with some help or hire more staff so takes pressure off the one staff servicing so many tables and for their long term well being
