The $2million four-year upgrade to Eat Streat in Rotorua is all over bar the shouting and whoever is doing the shouting it is a fabulous to the region's dining.

The Rotorua District Council initiative includes a covered central walkway with retractable roofing that allows for all weather out-door alfresco dining areas. Underfoot, is a distinctive geothermal heating underlay, with enhanced lighting, to keep the area warm during winter.

The alfresco dining area has been designed to complement Tutanekai St and the Lakefront. The "wood first" concept includes a central timber structure as a focal point showcasing the Rotorua story of forestry and wood processing. The street surface between existing paving stones on either side of Eat Streat features a patterned concrete design with a central walkway providing design linkage to the nearby Lakefront.

There are quality restaurants, cafés, bars and salons as well as the famous Lady Jane’s Ice Cream Parlour. Establishments include Ambrosia Restaurant & Bar (vibrant indoor/outdoor setting for breakfast, lunch or dinner), Arawa Fine Wines (a fine array of wines, beers, spirits and crystal), Brew (craft beer pub and Gastropub food), Indian Star Tandoori Restaurant (wide range of Indian), Mac’s Steak House (Rotorua’s only steakhouse serving NZ beef and lamb) and Solace Café and Restaurant (modern, warm and family-friendly).

Of course, if you are a guest at Rydges Rotorua and you don’t feel like venturing out, out Mezz Bar and Atrium Restaurant will look after you!
