Lonely Planet review
Come to Huhu twice a day – you won't be disappointed. Slick and modern with charming service, it has great views from the terrace and sublime contemporary NZ food. Sip a strong coffee, or graze through a seasonal tapas-style menu (large or small plates) of Kiwi delights like rabbit hotpot or organic braised beef, all locally sourced (right down to the specific cow). Wonderful!
