Stratosfare Restaurant

Set amongst the stars atop Mount Ngongotaha, Skyline Rotorua’s Stratosfare Restaurant and Bar is home to some of New Zealand’s best award-winning cuisine.

Enjoy a delicious Lunch or Dinner featuring a stunning array of freshly prepared buffet and cooked-to-order dishes highlighting locally sourced seafood, meat and produce. The contemporary ambience features luxurious Italian marble, granite, schist, timber and David Trubridge lights, while the panoramic view of Lake Rotorua is a sight to behold. 

Stratosfare will take you on a gastronomic journey from the tidal mussel tank, ensuring the freshest mussels you can find, to the flame rotisserie, Art of the Grill chef station, 24-hour slow cooked roast beef, seasonal salads and delicate cooked-to-order crepes.

This is a unique and decadent Rotorua dining experience that you’ll want to return to again and again.
