Restaurant
“The falls cafe is the most amazing place for its setting and food, that you just keep wanting to go back time after time. Its that "natural experience. The veggie garden setting under the trees, the fresh seasonal food you get served from it. its a get away from the hustle and bustle kind of place where you just linger and relax. The dining is informal, the kind that is served clean fresh and on a rustic board. Brad King is the award winning chef. I love his gourmet wood fired pizzas. The bistro is a little cottage setting under the trees with a gorgeous open kitchen so you can actually watch the chefs at work. The wood fired oven sits in the centre of the kitchen and really is the heart of the business . What Dewi and I did and recommend is to book a lunch or afternoon tea at the falls cafe, to return to after you have taken the "windows walk" in the Karangahake gorge. We ordered a sharing platter. Imagine sitting down under the trees , the breeze in your face, the kids playing found about, and sharing the chefs seasonal taster- house cured and smoked Kahawai with a smoked fish and fraiche rillet and pickled artichoke. We took a vegetarian friend and they had the light main of butternut and goats cheese stuffed portobella mushrooms served with lentils and a dhal curried pumpkin salad, pickled red onions port currants and seasonal root veg. Nice!!!! Dessert was their "zesty" pie, local lime tart with vanilla bean french cream!!!whooh yummy, mulled with poached tamarillos and ginger icecream!!!!! awesome flavours”
