Thought quality of food was poor. Salad greens past their best and burger meat very dry and freshness questionable. Other meals were not enjoyed overly. Staff excellent which was pleasing.

Definitely not a steakhouse but it was a little pedestrian. The steak was good. Well cooked and tasty but the bowl of steamed vegetables was totally old school and frankly boring. The staff stayed up late whilst I caught up with an old friend and was happy to start packing up around us even while it was fairly early. Someone... More

Dined here for the first time with 8 adults, celebrating a special birthday. Service was faultless - friendly, accommodating to special requests, and food was excellent. Yes, it is on the pricey side, but I was more than happy and would defiently recommend this restaurant for special dining experience.

Two excellent dinners here. A couple of people have said"a bit pricey" for the quality of food that was served, I'd say defiantly not... Will defiantly go again.

This is a small restaurant serving very good food in a rather extraordinary place, on the end of a row of shops in a suburban area just outside Tauranga, not where you would expect to find food of this calibre. We ordered the mixed platter for two to start, excellent mix of fish, meat and dips with ample bread, delicious... More

Had a quality meal at RSVP. This restaurant was specially mentioned by our hosts at the B&B that we are staying at. The service was very nice and people are so kind. The food was very good, but the prices are relatively high. You can say this for almost all of the restaurants in NZ. Interestingly enough hotels are relatively... More

RSVP is a classy restaurant in Tauranga NZ. Situated in the quiet suburb of Cherrywood it could be called an intimate place to eat. It isn't a large venue, and one can eat in comfort. In keeping with a number of restaurants,prices aren't cheap, but the food is of good quality. A place to go for a special occasion.

We were really impressed with the service and selection at RSVP. The staff were very friendly and the food was superb. There is a great selection to choose from for both adults and children. The children's meals are healthy. Thanks for a wonderful evening.
