The good lady wife and I stopped off at this place during the last two days of our north island road trip... I can honestly say that this is the best place we've eaten during our trip. Friendly staff, good beers and wines and great...More

My wife and I enjoyed our visit to Huhu Cafe, just a few hundred meters from the Glowworm Cave attraction. The service and food were both good. I had a braised vegetable salad and my wife had fish and chips--both tasty! Highly recommended.

We went there for dinner after visiting the Waitomo Glow worm caves. The garlic bread was exceptional, and onion rings tasted good. We ordered lamb shoulder rack and smoked NZ king salmon for our mains. Both are really good. The service provided by the restaurant...More

The best burger I have ever had in my life, I did let the staff and the chef know it was the best burger I ever had, I don't think I said it enough. Succulent patty with fresh buns and a thick layer of cheese,...More

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 wine list consists of a number of great New Zealand wine varieties and our beer list features a selection of boutique beers to whet the whistle! Cosy up by our woodburner during the winter months or chill out on our deck over summer... Have we tempted your tastebuds? Well then, we look forward to seeing you at HUHU sometime soon!
