Great meal and exceptional service!

We absolutely love the food there. We are sharing 4 orders between the 5 of us since as we have a 8 year old. The manager allowed us to be flexible on our orders, so we ordered 5 entrees, 4 main and 3 desserts. We couldn't finish and have to take away the desserts. The food is very generouly portioned and very yummy. The manager is very nice and welcoming. Overall, we had a great night and would definitely go back when we next in rotorua!
