The cafe here is a must do! Beautiful, organic fare with everything local or made on the premises. Had the best steak ever! There is an expansive organic garden out back. The craft beer selection is wonderful

The single best steak I have ever had. Did not expect to find this here! It also has a very good beer selection.

Thanks for your kind review. We are passionate about good food at good value, and its a pleasure to live in a time where beers are varied plentiful and well crafted. Over summer we can have as many as 30 different beers.

Surprising find in Tuatapere. Had lovely whitebait fritter. Good sized portions and our large group all seemed pleased with their meals. Good prompt service, good value and friendly affable host. Accommodation on site and extensive gardens, produce used in restaurant. Would try the accommodation if in Tuatapere again as disappointed with the Tuatapere Motel though as an ex logging camp pretty basic but I gather the owner has plans to upgrade.
