I was here for lunch on a Friday and I was a bit hesitant about going here as I had heard a few horror stories since they opened but it all went fine. We did have to kind of walk around to find someone to serve us but no biggy. We had a lovely lunch and listened to some awesome older music. Everything came nice and quickly and was very nice. In fact we both had to leave a wee bit as we were both very full. The only problem I did find was the restaurant is kind of hard to negotiate with walls all over the place. I guess this was all for atmosphere but was slightly claustrophobic I found.

In the late 1970's, we as a family, used to travel frequently from Auckland to Hastings. Coming home through Taupo late in the day, we would stop at Cobb & Co for dinner.
Excellent meals and service. Our two children would each be given an ice-cream as we checked out.
So it was great to see the restaurant reopen in a slightly different location on Tuwharetoa Street.
We now live in Taupo so we will be able to take our grandchildren for a meal - even if the do not get an ice-cream each!

Kids loved the games area & the fish tank! Traffic lights were great - and the adults Traffic light cocktail was even better! Meals are large, kids struggled through main but always room for dessert. I really enjoyed the scallop entree and chowder - although soup was on lukewarm side.Husband enjoyed shrimp cocktail - was just like the good old days. Nice atmosphere & lovely staff.

It was a freezing night, so the warmth and welcome of their fires was a great start. Service brilliant. Food? A restaurant for all ages. We had a 6 year old's family birthday nearby, and yet there were tables of people of all ages. Food was pleasant. Great for travellers like us.

Went out searching for some simple and homely foods to break up the niche places we had been eating at. Service was really good and food was just what we needed. Steaks came out just as we had ordered and in good time. The meals were also a very decent size and cocktails relatively cheap. Would go again next time I need a homely food night.
