A passionate cook, Gene takes pride in using the freshest local produce to suit the season and to cater for individual dietary requirements.

The Lodge’s gardens are the source of our fresh herbs and many of our seasonal vegetables.

Breakfast served at your convenience, is a feast in its own right – an elegant full gourmet breakfast with a twist, as is the Te Whau Lodge style.

Every evening, guests are invited to gather in the guest lounge (or on the deck, in summer) for canapés before heading out for dinner. The canape selection changes daily and is matched with local wine.

Waiheke boasts some superb restaurants - from formal to more casual bistro style - and we are very happy to make suggestions for dinner reservations for you.
