Pity, the reviews were good but it no longer exists and has been replaced by a cafe / gifts shop called "French Fig" which we did not visit. Dated 8th January 2014

We wanted an early dinner one evening during our stay at Whitianger and called in to The Carvery which opened at 5pm. . We were warmly welcomed by the owners and shown to our table and served our drinks and having time to take in our nicely decorated surroundings with nice artwork on the walls. (the loo's were also spotless)... More

Had a meal at the Carvery on the 14th November this year. Very good value for $21 plate of Roast beef and veg. Beef was lovely and plenty of it, Vegetables a bit washed out and kumara undercooked and not browned at all. $15 dollar plates not good value, plates too small for price.

Exceptionally prepared meals, great service and outstanding value for money. A must visit for everyone visiting Whitianga, particularly if you have kids and want something more substantial than greasy ol' takeaways.

Graham and Sue state as their mission ‘to provide you with the best damned traditional roast meal that will match or better your mum’s within our relaxed setting’. Well we put it to the test and they came pretty damned close to my mum’s own roast. Well I had to say that as she might read it. We dined with... More

We visited from Hahei Beach, crossing over on the passenger ferry. Delightful little restaurant, nicely appointed, great meal, friendly staff, worth tracking it down!

Delish roast beef and veges. My husband had lamb and loved it. A few dollars dearer than our local, but you expect that with a small tourist town. Good service, well packaged for take away. Second year we've been here while on holiday and will return.

I had the roastbeef, which was the most tender and juicy roastbeef you could imagine. Perfectly done, and just melted in your mouth. The vegie options were also very well done, and I felt the meal was an outstanding value. $15 for a small plate, $21 for large, with a little varition depending on the chosen meat. Staff was super...
