visited today (Thurs 23 March 2017) to celebrate my birthday. (I had enjoyed a great dining experience in the evening in February 2017 and was keen to return for lunchtime fare). Excellent service from Jay and, once again, a fabulously accommodating chef. I had the pork belly which was the best I had tasted in years. Thank you for a... More

We visited Okurukuru twice. The first time to have a drink on the deck in the sun. I decided to do the wine tasting - why offer your wines but use a wine from another winery to make up the four you pay for? I was given three Okurukuru wines and a riesling from Hawkes Bay and yet Okurukuru had... More

A fairly large group of around 30 of us arrived on time here at 7 pm, we were all tired and hungry (actually starving was the word I used to the staff) . However we had do what we were told and order our wine first, this took quite a while, only one person taking the orders. I asked if... More

We visited the other day after having bad experience here a few years ago and thought we'd give it another go as it used to be our favourite restaurant. We were too late for lunch so thought we'd go for dessert and drinks whilst the sun was out. Although the service wasn't bad it was good either and there were... More

I have been to Okurukura a number of times and it never disappoints! We decided to go for the 3 course menu for $50 and wow what a great deal! Everything was perfectly cooked with nice size portions and a relaxed atmosphere. So you have amazing food at a great price with relaxing service and the best view! You can't... More

Went for an evening meal on a Friday, the location is stunning but it ends there. Presented with a menu that reads like a winery on Waiheke Island we ordered a glass of red and a starter and main. Our waitress who was actually very nice strangely took away our lovely big wine glasses and replaced them with two tiny... More

On a lovely sunny day you can't beat the view from this restaurant. We were here for Lunch and it was very good. We both had the Stuffed Chicken Breast which we enjoyed very much and then shared the Ginger Ice Cream with Brandy Snaps for dessert. A lovely bottle of Otago Reisling went down very well too!

This is definitely a a jewel in the vista that is Taranaki. The food was beautiful and the service excellent. The view alone is worth a visit the food and wine the cherry on the top.

Dined early (6pm) on Sunday night (12 feb). Nice atmosphere, thoughtfully seated (space allowed between tables of diners), quiet. Very good service - Abi was professional. Accommodating chef allowed for alteration to a dish. Fabulous food, we both enjoyed our meals very much. Will be back and will recommend to others Thank you for a lovely dining experience.

Arrived for Sunday lunch to be 'greeted' by the rudest of men! I asked if outside was being used as it wasn't set up and was snipped at. On checking and finding it a little windy we went back in to the miserable and rude 'manager' to watch him hastily walk away towards the tables - so we followed. He... More
