Covid Notice — to protect our guests and staff we encourage those staff that have had contact or possible contact with Covid to isolate in accordance with health guidelines.

We apologise if your favorites are not available and look forward to having our full menu up and running as soon as is practical.
Named after the historic Raurimu railway spiral that winds its way up the central plateau, the Spiral Restaurant & Bar has a warm, hospitable atmosphere and a ton of character. With seasonal menus, children’s menu and al fresco dining, we pride ourselves on being a favourite of both guests and locals after a big day out on the mountain. We can also provide the option of packed lunches on request for groups or as part of one our adventure packages.
Enjoy great Volcanic coffee brewed from our 3 group espresso machine. Take out available also.
