Great food. Great service. Second time. Recommend. Great vegetarian options. Best of all great wine list. Scallops Devine, seafood of the day and all deserts ( we had four) all hit the mark. Just nailing a bottle of sticky. Perfect end to perfect meal

My wife and I stayed at the Regent Hotel while in Rotorua for a week in May. We ate at the hotel's restaurant once, and loved the food. Thought had clearly been put into how all the different elements of each dish went together. We were spoiled for choice and had trouble settling on our eventual choices.
