Food and Drink
Matahui Lodge serve gourmet meals produced by your hosts using the best of the Bay of Plenty's fare. The Bay of Plenty is famous for growing and producing some of the worlds best foods. Local orchards grow the creamiest avocados on the planet. The Bay of Plenty is also the kiwifruit capital of the world. As the name suggests the Bay produces plenty of top quality fruits and vegetables and we use them all, in season, to produce gourmet meals that surprise and delight. Meat and fish is sourced from local producers and treated with the respect that top quality produce deserves.
Kay produces freshly baked breads, pastries and scones fresh from her kitchen daily. Is there anything more delicious than a freshly baked scone with home made preserves for morning tea?
Guests are encourage to share any food, wine or beer preferences thus allowing Kay and Trevor to tailor an unforgettable menu.. They are happy to cater for special dietry requirements such as gluten free or dairy free. Contact us to discuss your food and drink wishes.
