We were staying at the resort, so had dinner at Rakinui. They accommodated a booking at very short notice and we weren't disappointed. I normally find eye fillet a bit flavourless but the Angus Eye Fillet was the best steak I've had in years. Perfectly cooked, melt in the mouth tender and with plenty of flavour. Hubby raved about his pork belly and there were good servings of veges with both meals. The only thing that stopped me giving them a 5 was that the service was quite slow. We waited nearly 20 minutes before we were offered a drink or orders taken and then the drinks were slow to arrive. As a result our meals were there before we'd finished aperitifs. We weren't in any hurry but a drink when we first sat down would have made the difference. LOVED the focus on using locally grown and sourced ingredients, and the section in the menu telling the story about local producers they use.
