Lunch with a view

Enjoy lunch at Te Puia with amazing kai against a backdrop of geysers and stunning park views as you enjoy a range of Kiwi flavours at Pātaka Kai Restaurant.

We are now open to the public. Head through the front gates, where you’ll find Pātaka Kai located next to the Te Puia Ticketing Desk.

Our Restaurant is open for our Hāngī Lunch Buffet (only available Saturday Lunch 11.30pm until 2pm) or alternatively, enjoy our A La Carte Lunch and Children’s Menu, available Wednesday to Sunday each week.

Pātaka Kai is a must-visit destination for both locals and visitors, so be sure to stop in when you’re next in Rotorua.

* For your safety and comfort if we are at alert level RED, our buffet is served to your table. If we are at alert level ORANGE, our buffet and A La Carte Menu will continue as usual with extra safety measures in place.
