Attentive courteous service and the Flambe cooking at your table is a real hit. The food is creative with out being OTT with the tender and juicy fillet steak cooked at our table hitting the spot. great choice of dishes at reasonable prices and a nice selection of drinks.

Have been there three times now and every time I go the food is perfectly cooked and presented professionally. The staff are so friendly and very helpful with the menu. As I don't eat red meat I always have either the chicken or seafood and every time it is amazing. Went last Friday night with friends and one of men... More

We stayed for a weekend and twice had the buffet breakfast. Food was fantastic, and the service was excellent, especially the elderly gent who was in charge. My only comment is about the decor which is a tad dated. Otherwise an awesome experience for my family!

The meal at Orangery was truly spectacular. It lived up to its billing at the No 1 rated restaurant in New Plymouth. Keep up the great service and food.

Seriously!! Are you kidding Orangery Restaurant of Plymouth International?! You do not fail to step up.....honestly!

I was having dinner with a group of colleagues which meant we had to have a set menu which was a little disappointing. I had heard great reviews of the restaurant so was looking forward to eating there. Service was good, efficient staff. Decor is a bit dated.

An outstanding menu, very delicious food and flawless table service is undone by a mediocre ambience in the restaurant. The restaurant is hard to find because there are no signs. A lack of marketing/advertising prevents The Orangery from stepping up to the next level. Without a doubt the food is spot on! As are the prices. It is just the... More
