Food created from the heart. Taste the difference.

The Bistro is a place where you experience quality food in a charming bistro style setting.

Award wining chef Brad King and his team create flavours and textures that you will remember for a long time. Take a look at our MENUS.

The Bistro is a cottage style building with an open kitchen so you can watch our chefs work their magic. The wood fired oven sits in the centre of the kitchen and is the heart of the business making sure everything is cooked to perfection. 

Welcoming families and friends, it’s the perfect place to eat, drink and stay a while.

Family is at the heart of our business

We understand the importance of family and the community around us and take it upon ourselves to embrace this in whatever way we can. 

We have a wonderful children's playground that includes a tree house fort, sandpit, swings and heaps of room just to run around and explore. We also have a seperate kids menu.

Our community are what makes the Falls Retreat so special so we treat our staff as family, our suppliers and neighbours as friends and our local schools come and experience the art of cooking too!

We also love to "Barter at the Bistro" and get very excited when our neighbours bring us a crate of kumara in exchange for a meal for two!

We would love to see you soon at our Bistro, but make sure you make a reservation

Produce fresh out of the garden

We pride ourselves on using as much as we can from our gardens and that is why our menu changes with the seasons. 

From paddock to plate is our ethos and Brad and his team are passionate about serving up the freshest ingredients they can. 

Come and take a look around our gardens and see if you can guess what is coming out of the garden next on our sharing platters.

We also have our chickens that deliver us fresh eggs daily, so if you come and stay at The Falls Retreat you will definitely be having these for breakfast.

We are also passionate about giving back to the earth and run composting classes on a regular basis. If you are interested in attending these click HERE for more details.

All good things come in little packages...

There is an abundance of things to do around the Karangahake Gorge from walking through the gold mining tunnels to cycling the rail trail.

But if the active lifestyle is not what you are after then why not getaway from the busy and relax. Stay in one of our rustic cottages set in beautiful natural surrounds and stroll over to our award winning bistro for a meal to remember.

Our rates start at $150 per night or you can take advantage of some of our packages.
