Food & Beverage


Te Puia’s new Pataka Kai (restaurant, bar and function centre) offers diners spectacular geothermal views while they enjoy a range of Kiwi flavours. The menus are sophisticated and innovative, infusing Māori flavours, cuisine and cooking styles.

Daily buffet lunch and hangi buffet dinner available. For bookings contact or call +64 7 348 9047

Our café Hiakai also provides ‘Grab-and-go’ options.

Taking Te Puia’s commitment to manaakitanga (hosting) to a whole new level, the new restaurant expands Te Puia’s seated dining capacity to approximately 650 people across two venues – the new Pātaka Kai and existing Te Whakaruruhau.
