Ok for the price

Came in on a quiet night, food was ok but for the price i'm not sure it was justified. Waiter was a little un happy we took too long to order our drink. Would go again but didn't love the experience.

First time to cook 'n' with Gas Friends said we would have a great meal and they weren't wrong. A relaxing drinks at then back in a cool vibe garden bar. Staff were full of knowledge with friendly feel. There were eight of us for a Christmas work dinner. My entree was a wonderful pate with everyone enjoying their own... More

Dined at Cook'n' with Gas just before Christmas with a group 6. Started with pre-dinner drinks in the casual indoor/outdoor atmosphere of the Astro Lounge. Staff were attentive and we loved the way water was automatically delivered to the table. Our meal in the restaurant was exceptional, dishes were clearly explained to us, wine recommendations were spot on, timing and... More

Visited between Xmas and NY, so possibly not the A-team in the kitchen. The service was friendly, but the food was mediocre, with strange combinations of ingredients in some dishes. Most of the dishes were too large, perhaps to justify the high prices. We all skipped desserts due to disappointment with entrees and mains. A difficult time of year to... More

Set in a quaint cottage, this place has been in business for 19 years and really know what they are doing. When talking to one of the wait staff, they looked at making changes to the menu and ended up only changing a couple of things. That gives an indication that they are doing things really well. The service is... More

My husband and I dined here for our wedding anniversary on New Years Eve. The food is amazing and the service is great. The front door was even opened for us on arrival. The only fault I found was the paper tablecloths. I did not think it suited the ambience at all, as I would consider it to be fine... More

We dined here for our anniversary so we did have a few more drinks than usual but it was lovely. Our waiter helped us choose the perfect bottle of wine that was exactly to our taste and the rabbit loin filo entrée was a highlight.

We went on a Saturday night after not eaten at Cook n With Gas since before the earthquakes. The food was above average. The prawn open ravioli was flavoursome and the duck main was asian-inspired. The Pork Belly was OK but was a bit messy in the way that it was presented on the plate. I thought the plates were... More

A great restaurant with the right balance between atmosphere and service. Food is delicious. Service is awesome and the old house with its different areas means you can have a meal and hear everyone at your table. Have not been here for many years, but will make sure I get back again soon! Ten out of ten experience.
