Kia Ora. Welcome to Ruapehu

The Spiral Restaurant & Bar

Themed around the famous Raurimu Spiral that winds its way up to the top of the central plateau from nearby Raurimu, the Spiral Restaurant & Bar is full of character and atmosphere and is a popular spot for both locals and hotel guests.

The Spiral Restaurant features a menu adapted to the season

We pride ourselves on providing the most affordable, tasty quality food to fill those tums after a hard day on the mountain, hiking or mountain biking! Dine ál fresco in our relaxed lounge setting.

Ample parking is available

Business Hours
7 days a week, with breakfast between 6:30 – 9:30 am
Packed Lunches are available on request.

Starting Monday 4th of December from 12 pm - 3 pm, The Spiral Bar and Restaurant will be opening for lunch and drinks!

There will be a select menu available, including our entire pizza range, some of our Spiral classics like the beef burger, fish 'n chips, and the seafood chowder, and a new menu item: a grilled panini with your choice of fillings, and more!

If you fancy a drink, try our new Sangria (sold by the litre - jug). Very sweet, and a little sneaky if you know what I mean.

For the time being, we are opening our lunch service 7 days a week. The Spiral Bar is now open from noon onwards, from 3 pm - 5 pm food is restricted to the bar snack menu. Full A la carte dinner menu available from 5 pm onwards.
