Sunday roast is a must!”
At the recommendation of the Adventure Lodge hosts, we decided to try out a Kiwi tradition -- Sunday roast! And it was absolutely fantastic. Choice of lamb or pork (the lamb was scrumptious), with accompanying veggies, potatoes, and kumara. The meal came with a delicious soup entree (alternate choice of garlic bread) and a superb dessert -- we were able to taste another Kiwi tradition, pavlova! And the atmosphere at The Station is perfectly charming.
We dine here quite often and always find the food right up to the standard of the big city restaurants however the ambiance is what the big city restaurants more often miss out on, this is a great place with great food great service and a great spot
“This Resturant is world class and could easily be in Paris London or new York.”
The New Zealand lamb and local venison was just wonderful
Presentation of food and service was fantastic.
The local owners of this Resturant have a huge passion for their Resturant, the local area of National Park Viillage , Mt Ruapehu, it's volcano and, the ski slopes of Whakapapa.
We have a holiday home in the Village and a meal out at 'the station' is always a must each time we visit.
