“Great food, service and atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2013

After visiting Cabbage Tree for the first time 5 years ago, I was very pleased to find it was still as good as I remembered. The service was quick and friendly and the food was fantastic. There's so much to choose from on the menu, it's hard to know where to start! Love sitting outside on a warm, sunny day. Will definitely return again when I'm next in Invercargill.

“35th Reunion Lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2013

Our Ladies Walk Group recently celebrated our 35 year reunion with a lunch at the Cabbage Tree. Only 10 minutes out of Invercargill with plenty of parking and in nice surroundings, we enjoyed a lovely buffet meal in the large function room. Even with over 50 chattering ladies we were able to hold conversations at a reasonable level. The dishes were many and varied and delicious. Never disappointed at this restaurant.

“Warm spot on a blustery, coastal day”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2013

Warm up next to the fire on a blustery beach day and enjoy a good meal as well as a cozy atmosphere. The fish & chips aren’t typical — they appear to be less battered for the more health conscious, but they’re still decent. The prices are a bit steep, but I would still recommend this place if you aren’t afraid of stretching the old wallet a bit.

“Great menu”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2013

I have eaten at the Cabbage Tree on numerous occasions, with friends, family and co-workers and not once have we been disappointed in the selection on the menu or the presentation and flavour of our meals.

“Birthday lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2013

My husband and I went to the Cabbage Tree last October for my birthday lunch. The surroundings and meals were excellent. Value for money and we would go again.
