Rotorua offers a wide range of restaurants and cafes that specialise in many styles of cuisine - enough to tempt even the most jaded palate. There are hundreds of dining options throughout the city ranging from inexpensive tavern meals at local bars, cosmopolitan cafes and brasseries, inviting smorgasbords to a la carte family restaurants and elegant fine dining establishments.
While in Rotorua one thing not to miss is a Hangi which is usually lamb, kumara (sweet potato) chicken, wild game, potato, pork and beef cooked in a hole dug in the ground, is lined with red-hot stones and covered with vegetation. The food is then placed on top. It is then sprinkled with water and sealed with more vegetation. The hole is then covered with earth and left to steam for several hours. The end result is succulent and juicy with a subtle smoky flavour.
So if you're looking for the perfect location in Rotorua for romantic dining or for a casual spot to get together for good times, it's all here!!
