We had a really good meal at Monsoon and great service from Antonia. Have to stop here! Also, very Gluten Free Friendly (as I am finding all of New Zealand). The stuffed chicken was amazing.

We stayed in the rainforest retreat and had a meal at this bar and restaurant. Great atmosphere and the food was lovely. The bar served Monteiths so I was well pleased!! Log fires and warm lighting made the environment very welcoming and staff were great.
