March 2015, We stayed in the adjoining chalets for 1 night & planned to have dinner. It was a quiet evening & we had the chef's full attention & a meal not to be missed.

Homey atmosphere and great food I would go again but not for a romantic night. Large open plan room with lots of wood but not much cosy ness

The scene was set for an enjoyable evening from the moment we arrived. The welcome was warm, the food superb, the service faultless. Well worth delaying our travel to enjoy this experience. We recommend you don't leave Takaka until you've dined here. Thanks Chris!

Chris is a wonderful chef and host. The Eatery on the Rock is at the entrance to Takaka so don't drive past.

Chris provided a dining experience which combined a diverse menu choice of "melt in your mouth" moments with a very real personalised, friendly service. I believe Messrs Michelin would be impressed! *This the only restaurant I'm aware of that has its own glow worm cave.
