Decent meal, adjacent to New Zealand's oldest buildings

Decent meal, great setting. Not exceptional, but very solid meal in a wonderful setting, space, and view of New Zealand's heritage.

The Pear Tree has always been our restaurant of choice whenever visiting Kerikeri but our last lunch meal there unfortunately left a bitter (or should I say salty) taste in our mouths. $20 for a burger the size of a McDonald's cheeseburger and a half a dozen chips was somewhat hard to swallow. The steak in the steak sandwich was... More

Food was wonderful (kumara and bacon soup, Squid and fish burger) and the personnel were great. We sat on the sunny balcony of the pretty building behind a transparent screen and watched the view. The food came quickly and the quality, quantity and presentation were perfect. Costs were reasonable. Coffee was great.

Lovely setting, but the service was soooo slow. It took half an hour to get our drinks and another 45 minutes for the food to arrive which was mostly salad. Nobody came to check if we were ok and it wasn't until our visiting friends went up and asked where our drinks were that they eventually brought them over. It... More

A delightful cafe opposite the Stone Store, sitting on the banks of the inlet. Lovely coffee and food. Beautiful building in historic setting and gardens.

We came for lunch. The setting is lovely. However the service was slow and the food was average nothing to rave about considering how much they charge.

Charming, olde world and full of character. The site is magical by the river with lots of special places to sit. Cider is great and food is first class.

We didn't order a meal but instead had coffee and a selection of a delicious slice and scone. The restaurant is in a nice setting, coffee was hot and the food delicious. Staff seemed a bit rushed and looked like they needed extra help to cope with the customers. Overall a nice place to relax for refreshments after visiting the... More
