I stayed at their hotel, so on a rainy night went in for lunch after seeing the ratings. There was nothing very flash about the food or service... Average to be honest..

Great atmosphere and the chateaubriand is one of the best steaks I've eaten in NZ. Was reasonably priced, well lit and comfortable.

We booked here for dinner when we were passing through New Plymouth because it was number 2 on Trip Advisor. The restaurant has a nice feel and atmosphere, but the food was disappointing. I had the roast pork belly with mash potato and vegetables this very much reminded me of a pub meal and nothing special. The meat and crackling... More

Having heard some good things about this restaurant I thought we would give it a go. The food was tasty and the portions were big, if you like potatoes, there were alot of potatoes which left you feeling heavy and struggling to fit in dessert. Other than that the service was lacking and it was not busy at all, only... More

My husband and I visited The Orangery on Thursday night. The meal was cooked to perfection, I had the merino lamb and it was wonderful. Couldn't fault a single thing.. A great evening and we will definitely be returning. Great friendly service.

After a disastrous Christmas Lunch in a hotel in Auckland many, many years ago, we vowed never to attempt one again.... However, as we were away from home we had no option but to book our group.... choosing the Plymouth. We were a party of 12, organised from Tauranga. We all thoroughly enjoyed our Christmas dinner at The Orangery this... More

Two breakfasts and a dinner were included in our room package, the breakfast was comprehensive with everything you could want. Highly recommended. Our dinner was good, but we ordered medium rare eye fillet steak which arrived more medium-well done. Tasty, tender steak, served on mash, but a large thinish piece of steak, the fibres of which looked more like cross-cut... More

The 4 of us arrived to very attentive service at this "hidden gem". The menu provided a wide range of options, however 3 of us could not go past the lamb dish of merino rump and sticky lamb ribs with garden fresh veges - ample portions, beautifully cooked and exquisite flavours! The generosity of the entree and main left us... More

We first went to the Orangery three years ago when we stayed at the Quality Hotel, where the restaurant is located. We have been back several times, even when we staying elsewhere. Although we have had breakfast here, I would recommend going for supper. The food is very good, and the dessert crepes flambé at your table. Expect to pay... More

We had a Grabone Voucher for my partner's birthday and neither of us had been there for years, so it was a great treat to go to a restaurant with such great service and entertainment ( many of us that night had the flambe prawns main so we were able to watch the staff prepare the meal - which was...
