This place serves a mixture of Turkish and Mexican food which actually works very well. We had a few tapas dishes and all of them (besides the falafel) were delicious. Staff were also friendly and attentive.

Stayed here for a friends birthday party and head a delicious and lovely decorated strawberry daiquiri and chips with salsa. Others ordered the burritos which are definitely my next dinner at my next stay. Most of the staff seemed very attentive and the whole setting is very cozy and friendly. Definitely gonna stay here again!

We decided to try this place after having a bit of a bar crawl for our date night. Walking up to the entrance we wondered if it was just a place for dinner, we almost turned around but asked anyway if we could just have a few drinks and maybe a snack. Yup, there's a bar area hidden in the... More

The Abracadabra was recommended by the Quest, where we were staying. What a recommendation, the food, upon initial inspection appeared to be a little mexican influenced, however in reality, it was just an eclectic mix of flavours. Bizarrely, as a non veggie meat lover, I cannot rate the cous cous salad higher! We also had enchiladas, beef kebabs and Morrocan... More

We came after a day at Hobbiton and they were very accommodating to my girlfriend with her vegan and gluten free needs. I had a delicious egg, toast, hash, and avocado brunch. It's also one of only places to serve kombucha in Rotorua. We will definitely make another stop here before we leave the area.
