We had a waitress Milka she was friendly and had a nice personality she is an asset to the restaraunt, we could not fault the food or the service. A must visit when you are in Rotorua and ask for Milka to look after you....More

We were looking for a 'nice' meal and this seemed to fit the bill. You can only book the restaurant along with the gondola ride to the top and that was a bit of a waste of time for us as we visited in the...More

Food is average, perhaps a half-step above the typical buffet restaurant. The only saving grace are the panoramic views of Rotorua. With Dinner & Gondola at $85, I would rather dine somewhere else. Would I recommend it? For tourists ... rather do one of the...More

Choice of food in a well thought out buffet was excellent. Everything was well laid out and even the fussiest person would be happy with the presentation and quality.

The view is amazing. We travelled up and down in the gondola. The food was great and there were choices to suit everyone. The service was excellent - staff were attentive but not overbearing.

At the moment and to the best of my knowledge it was around $55 per adult and $35 per child and that includes the gondola ride. They also have annual passes which give you some pretty decent discounts on most of the things... More

The restaurant was quite big, I'm sure they would be able to cater for your group.

It's a Buffet concept and you do have a few Indian dishes most of the time. But note that this is not an Indian Restaurant.

Where to look first, outwards, upwards or at the live chef displays... Set high on the side of Mount Ngongotaha, Stratosfare is the newest hot spot on Rotorua's burgeoning foodie scene. Luxurious Italian marble, granite, schist stonework and timber set the scene for a memorable experience where David Trubridge light frames your dinner setting for an evening that is sure to delight all your senses. Skilled chefs at their stations craft your cuisine, while cocktail connoisseurs mix and shake at the bar - and the sights don't stop - there's also an incredible 180 degree panorama of Lake Rotorua and the city to soak in amongst the atmosphere. Did we mention the menu? A range of cuisine is presented to tantalize your taste buds, from the tidal mussel tank, ensuring the freshest mussels you can find, to the flame rotisserie, aged prime cuts, Art of the Grill, seasonal salads and the freshly cooked-to-order crepes, we are sure you will leave wanting to come back again and again. Featuring a stunning array of freshly prepared buffet and cooked-to-order dishes highlighting locally sourced seafood, meat and produce, Stratosfare will take you on a gastronomic journey. Our commitment to quality begins long before our produce arrives at our pinnacle site. We work in partnership with local NZ farmers and growers who share our commitment to food excellence, from the pasture to the plate. Our award-winning Wagyu Angus cross fillet steak is just one example. Our prime beef comes from 16,000 hectares of coastal farms near Gisborne. The people of Mangatu Farms have been working their ancestral lands for more than 200 years. They can tell us exactly where the beef has come from, how it was reared and what it was fed. It's the little details like these that set our dining experience apart. We think you will be able to taste the difference too. Last dinner booking 8.30Pm.
