A great place for large groups. We had a private room which suited our party of 16 guests. The food was on the table in a timely manner, well presented and delicious. The wait staff are very friendly and professional. Very good value for money. I have dined here on a number of occasions and have never been disappointed.

Downsize the menu and concentrate on refining the flavours of your dishes. I feel like every dish within the meat options is the same, except for a differing sauce slapped on top. Service OK - took a while for our order to be taken but probably because of our large group.

We booked a private room for a family 90 th birthday. We were provided with good service. The menu is the most extensive i have ever seen, there is something wrong with you if you cant find a suitable dish for the fussiest eater. The meals and portions were huge. Our meals were fresh and tasty. There were 20 in... More

We have been to the Cabbage Tree many times and have always thoroughly enjoyed our visit but this time was very disappointing, the food was great but the service was not up to their usual high standard. Our waitress gave the impression she really didn't want to be there. We received no water at the table despite requesting this more... More

It was the first time visiting the area, we dropped in for a late lunch after a visit to Oreti Beach. The staff were friendly and accommodating. While the prawn twisters and the steak sandwich both hit the spot (presentation and taste), the brandy snap desert was amazing! We won't be back in Invercargill for awhile, but when we do... More

After working in the hospitality trade for many years, my expectations are quite high, I can say that we were told by friends the Cabbage Tree was a great place for a meal, and we were not disappointed one bit. Right from being greeted and welcomed with awesome friendly service, to the huge menu selection, quick service and scrumcous cuisine,... More
