Pizza was a little too cheesy, and base not thin enough. But it was fine. Service a little slow as they had a group. But overall fine.

We stopped in for a lunch on a Saturday afternoon. Ordered two small pizzas, wedges, the steak special, a salad and two coffees. The wedges came out first with the salad. After waiting for ten minutes we decided to start eating. Twenty minutes later the steak and a pizza arrived. We had mostly finished eating, but the last pizza and... More

Waitomo seems to go to sleep from 8pm so we weren't invited to a table. We had just come from a cave tour and after a shower thought we'd grab a quick pizza. Wasn't that quick and probably undercooked, but we were starving. Tasted ok. Processed, anaemic looking meat except for the pulled pork. Not hungry anymore, but overall not... More

We arrived at 7.20pm on a Friday night to order a pizza only to be advised, by a not very friendly staff member, that everything has been closed down and nothing was available. Absolutely ridiculous time to close a cafe on a Friday night when all the visitors are arriving after travelling during the day. Cafe should get their act... More

We went for family pizza and were disappointed. Pizzas were cooked to order but one was only just cooked and the other still raw in the middle. There are plenty of toppings but given the price not great value.

This was the worst pizza I have ever eaten. We needed somewhere quick because we were booked on a cave tour in the next hour. Staff persuaded us to order the pizza and said it would be quickest option. Pizza base was like a piece of cardboard - tough and with no flavour. Couldn't taste any tomato sauce and the... More

We had takeaway pizza from here during our one night stay in waitomo and it was so yum!! We did a half/half and there were ample toppings and the most amazing thin base! Would definitely recommend and if I am ever back in waitomo I will be grabbing a pizza from here!
