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

So here's the deal.. $50 per person for an amazing three course meal...and no short cuts on the courses...full menu choices...full plates..far too much for many of us..and hand crafted delicious desserts...we are amazed ..if you want top value..amazing food and special service from Jay the most attentive waiter..then Okurkuru will tick all the boxes

We attended our friend's wedding rehearsal dinner for the "out of town" guests and were delighted by the view of Mt. Taranaki and the sea. We loved the food-- we had a three course dinner that included entree, steak and desserts. The wine was gorgeous-- the house Sauv Blanc - Okurukuru - was lovely, light and complemented the entire visit.... More

A few days ago we went to lunch at this venue, it had awesome promise from the outside with outstanding views. However when we ventured inside we found dirty and shabby carpet and a once loved feel about the place. Unfortunately the meals were the same, poorly presented and low quality, upon our departure we highlighted this to the cashier... More

We arrived very hungry and were welcomed with a lovely choice of seats even though there were two parties of people, choosing to eat outside with splendid views over the valley and vines to the sea. An excellent and varied menu many lovely fish dishes including an excellent sea food risotto, our friends enjoyed a combined platter of lovely fresh... More

This place just out in the rural lands a bit looks very appealing from outside and the inside is even better, I got a window seat, was very nice eating with a view to die for looking out over the winery. Food was on point just how I'd imagined it would be. Service was pretty good to.

Looks like a winery but this is the first one I've been to that didn't seem to want to sell wine. Nice looking spot, but as we walked in the door no one wanted to sell us anything and the group in front of us looked like they were struggling to get a drink at the bar. We may have... More
