Taking Australian friends to dinner

All the restaurants with a view in New Plymouth were closed. It was Tuesday night. This was my 4th choice. While the decor hasn't changed for awhile, the service and the food made up for it. We had a disabled person and a 90yr old in our party of 6. An extra table was arranged to allow more... read more

The selection was great as was the food and the service is grand, kind of old fashioned and lovely. The Orangery at the end of the main dining room is a great place to meet for social or business occasions. It has a unique atmosphere, if a little noisy. The service even for brunch is fantastic- a little old fashioned... More

I appreciated the opportunity to give written feedback prior to leaving the restaurant but I was unable to complete the form as I was overwhelmed by discomfort from my burnt tongue (the soup was seriously hot and I was sufficiently hungry to indulge in a great gulp). Having now recovered I can say: given the large number of excellent Indian... More

Four of us ate here for the first time recently. Service was good and the food enjoyable, though I was a little disappointed with my rib eye steak which although cooked to perfection had quite a section of fat running through it. The chocolate fondant was superb and was probably the best I've tasted.

I love this restaurant, love it. I live local and would eat here at any opportunity, the staff are wonderful, so friendly and cant do enough for you. My all time favourite is the Chateaubriand, it melts in your mouth. I have travelled well and this is the best Chateaubriand i have experienced. If visiting, please, please try the restaurant.

We have been to the Orangery a number of times over the years and have rarely been disappointed. The food is almost always perfect, the staff are friendly yet attentive and the whole evening is always most enjoyable.
