Kindly picked up by the free shuttle service from our B&B at Bushy Point. Enjoyed a lovely meal - probably the biggest choice of food we've ever seen on a menu! Our food was lovely and we enjoyed sharing one of the puddings (like the main course the puddings were massive!). The restaurant was lovely and quiet on the Sunday... More

I have dined at this restaurant on many occasions. The food has always been great and the service spectacular. Menu is large which gives you plenty to choose from. Would recommend this restaurant

Dined at the Cabbage Tree on Xmas Eve as it was two of our family members Birthdays. Everyone enjoyed their meal. I had the Filet Mignon which came with 2 pieces of Eye Fillet. Absolutley decicious and cooked to perfection. We were seated outside and the sun was streaming on our backs with no protection from sun umbrellas offered. Great... More

I was invited to partner a neighbour to his work do and it was held at the Cabbage Tree....beautifully sunny day so outside we sat...plenty of areas here to enjoy the outdoors if desired.....we had buffet style and it was both varied and plentiful...I could not fault the food.....BUT...I had the unfortunate urge to use the toilets inside....to my horror...

Special occasion dining experience...staff willingly allowed us to decorate tables and have balloons and banners. 14 guests easily chose something different from the very extensive menu... all completely satisfied with their choices from the anti- pasta platter to the thai green curry mussels and I enjoyed the plump, succulent scallops. Great service and good beverage list including a beautiful Deutz... More

We dined here a couple of times while in Invercargill. Both times the staff were excellent, very knowledgeable about the menu and always helpful. The meals are large and delicious, I notice a few people saying overpriced but I would still rather have a meal from here than pay the same amount somewhere else and end up hungry, as I'm... More

What an extreme menu! 6 of us dined. Less is more in a lot of cases and this certainly applies here. What my meal was ok I was a bit astounded at the price. The dessert menu is also very large. Not too impressive. The only thing that was nice was the location.

Recently we went out to the cabbage tree simply for dessert, as a friend had recommended it, I chose the cookies and cream ice cream sundae expecting something extreme with the price and the location and reputation of the facility. However when it arrived I was horrified literally all it was was 3 scoops of ice cream in a cup... More

Has to be my favourite restaurant. Huge servings and food that worthy of gods. Plates are really big so be careful if you decide you want an entrée, might be best to share one. My wife loves the desserts and most are enough for two especially after the main. All the mains I've had a delicious, you'll want to eat... More
