Restaurant

Rotorua has climatic conditions that favor many berry varieties as well as kiwifruit and cherries. Our own garden is well used by the chefs as well as garnishes and herbs. Nearby orchards in Whakatane and Katikati supply wider produce selections and the strong Maori population gives the opportunity to present indigenous ingredients such as Kumara, Maori potatoes and edible plants. The emphasis of the evening meal is to produce changing tasting experiences of best seasonal vegetables served with prime New Zealand meat and fish. The Menu is a five course and includes starter, entrée, sorbet, 2 mains choice and dessert.

Bar

Pre Dinner Drinks and Canapés are served from 7pm daily and are complemented with wine, spirit and beer options. These drinks include a showcase of the best regional varieties of New Zealand’s wine. Guest enjoy these appetizers either around the fire in winter or on the outside deck in summer­time.

Attractions

Signature Experiences from the Lodge

The Central Plateau region of New Zealand has drawn visitors from early settlement times, initially to see the now lost Pink and White Terraces, as well as the continuing geo-thermal and Maori cultural attractions around the city of Rotorua.

Solitaire Lodge enjoys a spectacular position on historically important Lake Tarawera with many significant natural experiences available from the Lodge grounds. We have customized a selection of experiences that showcase the finest elements of this region with expert guiding and exceptional hosting services to match.
