 Live, Work, Invest and do business where the rest of the world comes to play!


Living in one of the world's premier tourism destinations provides an abundance of opportunities to experience local wining & dining all part of the proud tradition of hosting guests from all over the world.

Whether looking for breakfast or brunch, coffee or snack, dinner or late night supper, a glass or two of New Zealandís award-wining wines, or just a quiet beer, Rotorua has an impressive array of coffee shops, cafes, restaurants, bars and clubs. They offer top quality food, wine and entertainment from all over the world (including New Zealand, French, Thai, Chinese, Indian, Italian, Indonesian and Turkish) to tempt the palate and the senses. Don't forget to try a hangi meal, the traditional Maori feast, and sample traditional Maori culture. New Zealand produce is some of the best in the world so be sure to try our Kiwi specialities like lamb, venison, Nelson scallops, whitebait, Bluff oysters, South Island salmon, kumara (New Zealand sweet potato), kiwifruit, tamarillo and pavlova when eating out. Our range of fish is also great! Nothing beats a casual meal of hot, crispy fish and chips eaten out of newspaper while watching the sun set behind Mt Ngongotaha from the lakefront.
