Cuisine: A La Carte, New Zealand, Vegetarian
Price Point: Mains from $15 - $35

A quaint family-owned restaurant, The Greenhouse Kitchen & Bar is bound to be your next hangout. It's a treat for the foodies, artists and green-fingered among you.

As the name suggests, this little eatery boasts floor-to-ceiling windows that soak in every last ray of sunshine. Like a greenhouse, it nourishes and feeds its inhabitants (you) so they can literally live their best life (you again). So step in and join the hanging plants and revel in its edgy art-school vibe.

Catch up with loved ones over an international menu, made entirely from fresh and local ingredients. Begin with a crunch! Share some edamame beans or roasted cauliflower that comes with an oozing blue cheese dip. Or, keep it delicate with the crab tartar that comes with avocado and a bold capsicum and tomato sauce.

Moving onto mains, you have a perfectly cooked pork sirloin with veggie sides, a lamb rump from New Zealand (where else?), complete with couscous. Seafood lovers will rejoice at the smoked salmon risotto and vegetarians can get cheesy with a camembert filo. Cue a sudden houseplant addiction.

Eating out with my family can be quite challenging as some members have certain dietary requirements and some little members are extremely fussy eaters. The menu at The Greenhouse Kitchen and Bar had a variety of gf, v, dairy free and kid friendly meals. We were all catered for and walked away very full and happy with our meals. Happy hour was an extra bonus too :) Thanks for a lovely meal :)

Excellent food, best we've tasted in our 14 years in New Zealand!
Perfectly cooked and well balanced flavours. We didn't expect such a delightful culinary experience in a little cafe/ bar eatery.
I recommend the swordfish special and the steak with mushroom sauce.
Will definitely be visiting again!

A fantastic little find in Rotorua! Looks like a cute coffee shop but the standard of food is much higher! Pork belly bites were fantastic and I had to fight my 10 year old for the chocolate fondant. Fabulous service and a great atmosphere. Will be back for breakfast before we leave town!

- dined at The Greenhouse Kitchen & Bar Rotorua on

We were greeted by two very friendly staff who made us welcome from entering the door. Lovely light fresh interior, with a equally good food and beverage menu, and nice touches like quality glassware and cool plates to complete the experience. They also had an excellent happy hour running. We will definitely be back!

First time at the Greenhouse Kitchen and it won’t be the last. Lovely Moroccan chicken soup and garlic bread to start, with the recommended chicken croquettes also tried before a delicious pan fried kingfish dish. My partner had the lamb rum and that was just as good. We finished with a yummy apply tart and berry cheesecake washed down by lovely coffees. Great food and great service in a lovely, comfortable venue.

Really enjoyed our food at the Greenhouse. Quirky wee cafe vibe, we had delicious crab, cauliflower, perfectly cooked steak and an amazing seared kingfish special. The snickers crepe was amazing. Very nice meal and kiwi cocktail.

Pleasant, beautiful experience. The decor is calming, grounding. The staff, friendly and accommodating. The food delicious and didn’t take long to arrive to our table. The attention to detail, so thoughtful. I appreciate the lovely hand wash and hand towels over paper towels. Make sure to try the crepes!

What an undiscovered new gem we found in Rotorua last night as we were passing through. A new restaurant with such a diverse and interesting menu that it was hard to decide what to eat. Between us we had the roasted cauliflower with blue cheese dressing, terekihi, salmon risotto, chocolate pot and apple pie. All 5 star. Beautifully prepared and presented and completed with a perfect coffee!
A lovely boutique restaurant with outstanding attentive staff. If this was in our hometown we would be here regularly. But we'll be back! Thank you ☺

Lovely meal and service. We started with the very tender salt and pepper squid and then enjoyed the smoked salmon risotto and Scotch steak. Wine at happy hour prices was appreciated as was the decaf coffee to go with our dessert.

Great vibes with the staff that served us. Braised pork belly stood out to me of what was ordered. Melt in your mouth kind of fat, loved it. Roasted cauliflower went well with the blue cheese. Apple tart was OK. Mostly pastry and not much apple. Would definitely come back to try everything else on the menu though. Thanks guys

food was good. And service was very good considering there was only one staff on at front of house, We (2A +2C ) were prompting seated outside on a beautiful evening and had meals delivered quickly and looked amazing,
