Only stopped for coffee

We were here on a Sunday, so the place was absolutely buzzing. We were very impressed with the service and the quality of the coffee. We were tempted by (and succumbed to) the muffins. Nice!

Highly priced meals that were fairly unappetizing. Vegetables such as carrot,broccoli, cauliflower were so hard they may as well have been raw. Husband's steak was quite chewy and his meal was one of the most expensive on the menu. Desserts were okay. We had a long wait for our meal so we both ate most of our meals as we... More

We hadn't been to the Cabbage Tree for ages when a friend mentioned that the menu had an extensive choice of gluten-free options, so we decided to pay another visit. We went on a Tuesday, for a late lunch, and the restaurant was quiet, with only a few diners scattered around the various areas, which suited us fine. Our friends... More

The Cabbage Tree has an extensive menu of items that puts it squarely in the camp of family dining. However the prices of most items is surprisingly high and close to what one might expect from fine dining. Whilst portion sizes are on the large size there is nothing about the meal including presentation and service that makes dining here... More

Huge menu with a wide variety of preparations of meat and seafood. The lamb and venison my wife and I had was excellent, everything else we saw come out looked very appetizing too. The NZ Pavlova could have been a meal by itself, but was well worth over stuffing ourselves!

Took my wife and daughter out for dinner. I ordered Steak Diane, my wife the New Orleans Chicken Salad and a mini steak for my daughter. Wife's meal was good, mine was luke warm on arrival and two thirds the size from when I last had it there. The kids meal was average and not finished. What disappointed me was... More
