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

I have been here 3x & won't be back! The first time was in 2011, they obviously had different management then, as I was happy with the food, the ambience, the service, maybe not the price though.....I went back in 2012 & the portion was a lot smaller & still expensive. I went back in 2013 & the food was... More

Went to the Cabbage Tree with a friend for Dinner. Something for everyone out there. It was very busy and they suggested we book in future but we were fit in. The place was nice and warm and the service was prompt and friendly, we had a young waitress who had exceptional knowledge of the menu which was hugely helpful... More

Called reasonably late to book a table and they squeezed us in. The restaurant was packed so was surprised they found room. Fabulous service which was surprisingly prompt. Thought we would have been waiting forever as they were so full. Our meals were all enjoyed. I ordered lemon meringue pie which I felt was far too expensive. No need for... More
