A real fine-dining experience, but with good sized portions! Thanks to Finesse for the lovely service!

- dined at The Regent Room on

Small, pleasant restaurant with lots of natural light. There seemed to be mix of overseas tourist families and local dining when we were there. The food was outstanding, lots of natural NZ flavours, beautifully presented and good portion sizes. We had salmon confit and scallops for entrees and both were beautiful. The salmon serving was massive and melted in your mouth. We both had beef fillet for main and every element on the plate was excellent-- nice flavours and sauces but all well balanced tastes. We are already planning our next visit.

From the time we entered the restaurant the service was amazing. Attentive and listened to what we wanted and relayed it to the chef. Food was excellent, well presented and certainly was enough. Would highly recommend particularly for that special night out.

The food was absolutely amazing...beautiful flavours, well presented and the portions were very generous. The staff were friendly and on to it when it came to the finer details such as pouring more water or asking if we would like another round of drinks. An exquisite place to dine and I would highly recommend it as a place to go if you are wanting to spoil that special person in your life.

Servings are large for a such a fine restaurant. Selections are also pretty extensive. Would have given a 5 for service if told that I’ve ordered too much food, given that one of the diners is a child.

We were extremely pleased by the wonderful customer service we received at the Regent Room. Our wonderful attendant made the evening a very pleasant one. The food was exquisite - everything was perfectly cooked at the presentation was amazing, we had the forest mushroom starter and the beef fillet and lamb rumb as our mains, all were very tasty and left us quite full! We also managed to try the apple, pear and berry crumble for dessert which was also quite tasty. The decor and ambience were perfect for a romantic evening or lunch/dinner with family.

Lovey dining experience. Food was top class, true a la carte. Beef, lamb and risotto dishes were amazing and deserts in a league of their own. Front of house made the whole experience a real treat. Thank you

We have lived in Rotorua and finally we have found a fantastic fine dining restaurant that we would rate 10 out of 10 for food service and ambiance. We had three courses and all were excellent. The mushroom entree and panacotta dessert were our two favourites but the other meals were also outstanding. Thank you so much for a wonderful evening-we will be back and recommending you to others

We arrived quite early and were impressed with the welcome and were seated promptly. The food was delicious and a good variety offered to suit different tastes. We will certainly visit again and look forward to their degustation menu.

We have lived in Rotorua for a couple of years but had never visited the Regent Room. Seeing the deal on First Table was a great incentive to try somewhere new, and we are so glad we did as we had a wonderful experience!

The food was excellent, with all 4 of us trying a different dish and being impressed with the flavours, presentation and portion size. We shared two desserts which were possibly the highlight of the meal.

But perhaps the most impressive part of the evening was the wonderful service we got from all the staff, and especially the duty manager, Gretchen, who was excellent.

We loved our evening out and will recommend both The Regent Room and First Table to friends and family.

Definitely one of the top Restaurants in Rotorua for food quality and service - portion size was perfect on both the entrees and mains. Would recommend and we will be back!

Everything was simply Excellent!
We are truly appreciate your service.

- dined at The Regent Room on

Lovely meal, not too crowded. Friendly enough and food came out reasonably quickly. Sometimes plates weren't cleared as promptly as could have been but that's not a big worry. The beef cheek that came with the Rib Eye was especially yum. Chocolate cheese cake was probably the only item of food that we had which was nice but not wow like the rest.

The food at the Regent Room is delicious, highly recommend the scallops and the market fish, and all the desserts we tried were exceptional also. The service, when staff were close by was very good, however there were multiple long stretches where no staff were around.
