HUHU Cafe offers visitors to Waitomo the opportunity to sample great New Zealand cuisine in a beautiful setting. We offer a delicious evening menu, perfect for enjoying with a cold one on the sunny deck after a hard day's caving or glow-worm spotting! You can enjoy delicious treats such as Caramelised Garlic & Goats Cheese Tart, Wild Rabbit Hotpot, Organic Rib-Eye, Dark Chocolate Souffle & Poached Tamarillos to name but a few (please note that our menu changes on a regular basis, depending on what we can source from our suppliers). Wherever possible, we use local providers - our lamb comes from farms around Te Kuiti, our cheese from Putaruru & our berries (when in season) are from Piopio. Our…
They're absolutely amazing, over the years I think I've tried everything off the menu and I've never disappointed! the steak with blue cheese, salmon and the duck would be my top choices! and the peanut butter parfait would placate any sweet tooth!
We booked this restaurant being so close to where we’re staying at the lodge across the road. Folk around us urged us to try the duck but we knew better ? Or did we ?
My meal of lamb lacked colour and was dry. Very...poor presentation and lacked taste. I should have added the mushrooms but the price of $35 for the lamb plus the cost of those would have been exorbitant. My wife was disappointed with her meal also. But to be fair the others at our table were very happy with their steak meals.
Also the sticky date dessert we shared between two went some way to soothing this savage beast !
I must say I am not a fan of fine dining ... give me a Ready roast any time.
In hindsight I should have ordered two small plates including one of the duck for the same total price and walked away happier. Hindsight is as usual a wonderful thing!More
We were a group of 12 who enjoyed Huhu's hospitality after a tour with Spellbound caves so were ready to eat. We weren't disappointed. The whole group thoroughly enjoyed our meals and the desserts were divine. Food was well presented and tasty and the service...friendly providing a nice atmosphere. Team Huhu thank you for an enjoyable afternoon.More
Awesome service, friendly atmosphere for families, beautiful Bush view from the deck, and best of all such good food! The pork belly bites were delish, and kids chicken and mash was even amazing... I ate most of the kids meal! 😂
We read the reviews and expected a lovely meal - we were not disappointed ! Pork hock and lamb dishes were both delicious, innovative sides and perfectly cooked. Desserts .....well we just had to because the choice was so good. Chocolate soufflé and toffee pudding...- both delicious and very nicely presented. Staff really lovely too. Cant ask for more :-) prices very reasonable too.More
Amazing food, really unexpected. We had the chicken with Israeli cous cous , the pork hock, scotch fillet,prawns, couquette gnocchi and fish and chips all delicious. Peanut butter for dessert. Highly recommended
Hulu was recommended by our host. She said the locals all eat there which is always a good sign. We weren’t disappointed. The mushroom fettuccini was simply spectacular. I added the chicken and thoroughly enjoyed my meal. My wife ordered the curried cauliflower and was...equally complimentary. The atmosphere was also pleasant - relaxed and friendly with great views out over the valley in the evening sun. Highly recommendedMore
