Such a shame

The cabbage tree has a great location, is a lovely building and is the best place for the kids in invercargill. And that is where the good points stop. The menu is big enough for three diffrent restaurants its ridiculous, the service was verry poor, just as our meals come out the fire alarm went... read more

This restaurant is located just a few km's out of the City on the way to Invercargill's Oreti Beach. Good food, an extensive menu, relaxing style.

This restaurant is a little out of town on the way to Oreti Beach but well worth the journey. The menu is as good as it reads in their brochures and I had the Stewart Island Salad which was huge and very tasty

My wife had Pan Fried Blue Cod which was soggy and tasteless, I had the Pork Schnitzel which was tough and over cooked. Beetroot sauce was good but without the sauce it would have been un edible. A disappointing outing.

If you want to go for a quick meal that's fine but if you want to have a evening out make sure you plan to go somewhere else after. 1 hour 20 minutes and 6 of us had a 2 course meal. Way to fast I had just finished my entrée and they delivered my main. All 6 of us... More

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
