Ever wanted to tuck into some fancy fare among the stratosphere? Make tracks to Stratosfare, a sky-high restaurant and bar for an elevated gastronomic journey. Set among the clouds atop Mount Ngongotaha, the venue exudes a luxurious vibe with sleek Italian marble, granite and timber features. As you sit, basking in panoramic views of Lake Rotorua, treat yourself to some of New Zealand's best cuisine.

Along with a throng of cooked-to-order dishes, Stratosfare boasts one of the best buffets around — with a roast meat carvery, tidal mussel tank as well as a sashimi and sushi station. Tuck into melt-in-your-mouth venison, 24-hour slow cooked beef, warming curries and seasonal salads, or order a freshly cooked crepe. Be sure to save room for something sweet as the dessert bar gets glowing reviews. Vegan, vegetarian or gluten-free? Don't stress, there are plenty of meat- and wheat-free options available. So, sit back and enjoy this decadent dining experience.
