Restaurant recommended by manageress of Tuscany Villas. We had not booked, but were able to get a table for 2. It was difficult to decide what to choose from the menu. I don't think it wold have mattered what we choose. Food was superb, the service efficient and friendly. Would recommend to anyone.

Went for a walk in Whakatane to explore and see if we can find somewhere to eat. Came across Roquettes and it looked good inside, very modern and welcoming. Went and chose a table by the window. We started with the antipasto dish and it had superb breads, fillet steak with fried onion, prawns, feta with black olives, smoked salmon,... More

Beautiful setting, helpful staff, varied menu, well-presented meal and all at a very reasonable price. It was a pleasant autumn day so we had the choice of inside or outside. The restaurant was well patronized but a suitable table was available. Staff helped us with choice and happily accommodated dietary requirements.

We had a very good meal of three types of fish. Our best meal in New Zealand so far. Service was also good. _______________

Good meal, comfortable setting, and an efficient staff await you here. The staff takes care of requests in a timely manner. A fairly small menu, but complete enough to suit most people.

We have enjoyed this restaurant on numerous occasions, being based in Whakatane for work. The food is really good, and the service is good too. We've only ever had one issue with the smoothies we ordered, but this was rectified quickly. Definitely recommend!

Enjoyed the meal at Roquette although getting our meals was a bit slow. We were lucky that we had permission to have a longer lunch break.

My wife and I had a wonderful dinner. Make certain to make reservations. No one seems to arrive after 8 PM. We have been in New Zealand for a week and so far this is been one of the highlight dinners. We will recommend this restaurant and hope to return in the near future. Great experience.

We used to go to Roquette with my husband to celebrate birthdays and anniversaries as it was for years the best restaurant in Whakatane. Not anymore... the restaurant has been under new management since last year and it was first time tonight we went there for dinner since the takeover and we were both disappointed. It looks like they are... More

Four of us went for dinner to Roquette tonight. We enjoyed our meals and the service was good. My tagine could have been hotter - looked as though it was cooked in a different pot rather than baked in it. The pumpkin was not warmed through. Light chicken meal was excellent and the steak wrapped in bacon was good, though... More
