Down Thyme Restaurant & Café

A passionate Turkish / German hospitality combination.

Our Mediterranean Style of Cuisine

We have had a change from the European / New Zealand food of Waitete Orchard Restaurant to
a more Mediterranean style of cuisine. Both of us (Roland, a chef 50 years from Germany and Mufide from Turkey) love to create tasty food and we are looking forward to welcome you in our new Down Thyme Restaurant & Café.

Come on over, relax and enjoy our ambiance, top service and great food.
