Nestled in the stunning Karangahake Gorge (between Waihi & Paeroa) along the Hauraki Rail Trail and with Owharoa Falls on our doorstep, The Falls Retreat is a place to reconnect with food, nature and each other.
We offer a range of unique dining experiences with award winning food using local suppliers and produce from our on-site organic veggie gardens, 3 x charming cottages available for nightly rent and a range of cooking and gardening workshops.
We believe in making everything from scratch including our own pasta and sourdough breads, homegrown pickles and doing our own smoking and curing. Sustainability is at the heart of our business.
*Please note whilst we are still passionate about food, we no longer offer our regular lunch and dinner menus in the Bistro and instead, have created special dining experiences for you to enjoy! Currently, Friday nights will be a casual style sharing menu called The Pizza Social, on Saturday nights we are offering our special 4 x course Paddock to Plate Dining Experience and on Sunday lunches our Sunday Feast will be a 2 course set menu showcasing our popular dishes with the opportunity for a self guided tour of our amazing organic veggie gardens . Our popular cooking and gardening workshops will run on Saturday lunches and we are also offering the option for group bookings and functions of 12 or more people - this is available all days! Bookings essential for all experiences and workshops*
