Several different meals ordered for our group. Those who had salmon said it was dry, the chicken Parma was a lump of dry chicken with cheese melted on top. Where was the filling? There was none! No side salad. Chips tiny little dry shrivelled up...More

We visited on a whim, after reading the reviews. We called in for lunch after visiting Mt Egmont national park headquarters. The Dutch based menu, especially the Dutch pancakes were amazing.

Dutch style food with a magnificent view. My children always have fun here on the home made pedal cars. Plenty of gluten free options on the menu.

A very nice family cafe/restaurant. Nice variety of food, where my favourites are the pancakes. Bacon, apple, even spicy pancakes are available. Really good for families, as the children will be happy to spend plenty of time on the little cars and the playground. For...More

Great view, lovely owners, great good for a reasonable price and the thing what I should recommend others is the scotch Fillet with mushroom sauce. This place is perfect for children and for families. Especially the flying foxe are a must do

Because TripAdvisor uses algorithms that absolutely make no sense. Further they allow one and the same restaurant to be mentioned twice on their New Plymouth ranking and they have no clue that e.g. the Rice Bowl is not... More

Description
Volcanoview Restaurant established 26 January 2011. Friendly priced family restaurant with table service. No need to order at the bar, we come to you. Our food is healthy. Most of the dishes are gluten free, we grow our own lettuce, vegetables, capsicums, bake our own cakes, buns, bread, make our own beef/fish/veggie burger patties and all our sauces except mayonnaise and BBQ sauce. So we know that what we serve is good healthy food. Further we cater for weddings, parties, work do's, functions, funerals, you name it. Average cost for a full fledge dinner buffet is $ 37,50 per head. The funny - if you can call it funny - thing is that we are ranked 111 out of 120 restaurants in New Plymouth by the guys who manage this international web site, whilst the average review over all these years results in a rating of 4,5 stars. Well, no worry, this is the place to be for young and old. Everyone can use the free pedal carts.Three flying foxes are all located on a private property. The use of the flying foxes is at your own risk, because Volcanoview, the management and our staff cannot be held responsible for any accidents. If you stick to the rules, nothing is likely to happen. Apart from the restaurant we offer camp ground, cabin and B&B facilities. All reasonable priced and the awesome views of Mt Egmont are totally free of charge. Hope to see you soon. Kind regards, Joep & Anemoon & Kathy
