Until further notice we will be open 7 days lunch and dinner and we are looking forward to seeing you here.
We will be open on Public Holiday Mondays for lunch and dinner.
January has gone already in 2014 – just where did it go?? It was a busy first month with an interesting mix of customers from around the globe rubbing shoulders with locals.
We’ve had a few Hauraki Rail Trail customers over the month especially for our natural ice cream plus a few who stayed locally coming in for dinner. No doubt cycle traffic will increase as the Hauraki Rail Trail becomes more widely known.
I have been working on organizing the Social Wine club for the coming year and have signed up speakers for May, July and November so far. I am now concentrating on the remaining months to fill the gaps and make our meetings interesting, fun and educational.
A reminder about Valentine's Day - we only take 12 couples to provide romance and intimacy on the night - the menu is a’ la carte from the evening menu plus a surprise for the special lady so please book early for the 14th of February. See our evening menu.
Chef's dish of the month is Lamb Rump slow grilled with rosemary jus on ratatouille and our own agria wedges - very tasty and juicy.
Remember our range of ready cooked take out meals – great for a summer night when you are short on time. Just heat and enjoy - curries, veal strips, lasagna, German meat loaf and more.
If you are interested in cooking or baking with Quark please contact me. I have it in stock as well as German Sauerteig Roggen Brot (Sauer dough rye).

I recently dined for dinner at the Waitete Restaurant with a group of like minded others. We were offered a set menu of just a main and a dessert. The staff were absolutely wonderful. The wine was incredible and the food was really, truly top quality. The chef is doing a wonderful job! Also, the icecream is so special, especially when combined with their homemade brownie. I would just like to say a big thanks to them all and I will DEFINITELY be dining there again.
PS: They sell their own salad dressing and it is out of this world!
