Restaurants

Just like our café culture, our restaurant scene offers a never-ending choice of dining experiences and cuisines.
 
Options include everything from multi award-winning fish and chips to fine dining, and from locally brewed craft beer and wine, to steambox (meals cooked using natural sources of geothermal steam) or hāngī (a traditional Māori underground cooking method). Rotorua really will surprise you.
 
The bustling hub of Eat Streat boasts a dozen or so restaurants and bars in a thermally heated, covered avenue as long as a city block.
 
Here and throughout the city, food from every corner of the world is at your beck and call – a global smorgasbord of gastronomical delights.
