We love this place . Anne and her husband must surely run the best restaurant in BOP and would be right up there nationally. Premises are superb, food just perfect and the service brilliant. Anne’s attention to detail compliments the whole experience. We have been her at least 4 times over the years when we visit Tauranga and the same quality experience is there every time. Simmerset cottage is a must if you appreciate fine food at a reasonable price. Just perfect.

Thank Greg S

I've dined here a number of times, I usually have the same thing because I just can't go past the duck. It's delicious. And there's always a desert dilemma so usually we will get one each and share. Good wine selection, service is wonderful.

Went here for an elderly family members special birthday..Nice old sandstone cottage with old fashioned high quality table settings - but lighting was poor ..difficult to see meals - meals were average - extremely small helpings of vegetables. service was excellent..I just didn't think it was worth the money.. Mains are approx $40 and entrees $20

We went here for my sisters birthday, we have been going there for years on and off. We thought we might be a bit loud so they put us in an area that we won't annoy anyone. The food was delicious and service fantastic. I now buy vouchers for families birthdays so they can go again for dinner. Try the licorice ice cream - yumm!

We enjoyed an excellent meal accompanied by a good wine selection and supported by good staff and service.
This would be amongst the top restaurants in the Western Bay of Plenty.
