Ordered the veggie pizza and was pretty disappointed given the reviews. The veggie pasta was bland and not too good either. Also - took about 30 min to get the food despite no one else dining in...not ideal.

When you dined in with us, though you were the only person dining in you were told there would be a wait as we had heaps of take away orders up, surely you noticed our kitchen staff running around like headless chickens. AND THEN you decided you didn't want any of the meals as they came, you were told they... More

Really tasty Pizza, salad and dessert (that's all we tried). Plus the music they play there is quite cool, too! We were served really quickly. So all in all - absolute recommendation!

Really nice pizza place tucked away just off SH1 in Kaikoura. Nicely set out inside with use of reclaimed wood. Menu has a great selection of unusual pizza's which are cooked to a high standard and prices just about right. Also has a good selection of beers and wines which, like most of these places, are a little pricey. Surprise... More

Thanks for your review, Im so glad you enjoyed the pizza! Unfortunately there's not much we can do about the price of alcohol, if the breweries reduced their prices they would no doubt be reducing their quality ingredients and no one wants that! Thanks again More

Popular establishment, as we were advised that phone orders would take an hour. Luckily we had some time to kill, and dinner was served right on time. Ordered the Hula Hula, Smoked Chicken Fettuccine and Pear Salad. Salad was especially tasty, pasta was perfectly cooked, and the pizza was wonderful! Would try again in a heartbeat.

Cold night and there before opening 5.25pm - busy with phone orders but did not have to wait long. Offered a drink while we waited. We had the Pear and Blue Cheese large pizza - it was delicious.

When you visit a restaurant two nights in a row – and both nights turn out to be a ridiculous experience, you know the restaurants problem is chronic. Please read on and be warned of one of the worst waiters, you’ll ever meet. The first night: We arrived at the Black Rabbit around 7-8pm hoping to get a table. The... More

This is really disappointing to read, as we pride ourself on our food and our staff. All we can do is apologise that you had such a bad experience, that person was only working for us for those two nights as all of our normal staff were away and he was kindly giving us a hand.

Five of us went to dine at The Black Rabbit, and we were a bit disappointed that there were not really nice entrees, we had the wedges and beer battered fries....well they were very nice and no complaints there!

Thanks for your review, were so pleased you enjoyed the pizzas so much! Also thanks for the feedback about the entrees, over the winter we shorten our menu down as Kaikoura get very quiet. But it's good to know what our customers are after! Come back over summer, we will be adding some nice platters and other yummy things! More

Easily the best pizzaria in town! Canadian pizza and chicken fettuccine were really good :) Place is a bit different to locate. Drive slowly after the rail crossing and you will see an Indian restaurant 'Coriander'. Black Rabbit is next to it.
