“Best real food in Ohakune”
Reviewed July 4, 2014

We've been coming to Ohakune for nearly 10 years and food has always been a little hit and miss.
OCR was always our go to for Eggs Bene (the best in NZ), came for lunch today and it's lived up to expectations.... The Vege Nachos and Chicken Salad (make sure you ask for OCR sauce) were just sensational. Looks like the new go to for Breakfast and Lunch!

“Don't let the look from outside stop you from going in”
Reviewed June 3, 2014

From the outside, OCR cafe looks just like an old house, and we didn't expect too much. But then we did our homework and read the reviews, so we knew it couldn't be bad. The reviews helped us decide to give them a try and have dinner there.

The reception was very friendly. We were seated quickly (close to the fireplace, which was a bonus on a cold night). Although they were fairly busy, we didn't wait long for our food to arrive.

Our food was excellent quality and really tasty. Like all restaurants, the wines are expensive (compared to what a bottle costs in the liquor store) but not more so than in comparable restaurants.

While the food was excellent, the friendliness of the two ladies who worked there on that particular night made the experience complete.

We will definitely eat at OCR every time we re-visit Ohakune.

“Best steak ever”
Reviewed May 11, 2014

Teenage boys are notoriously fussy eaters, but our 17 & 14 year old sons are huge fans of the OCR steaks !! I'm also now a convert and its our go to choice for a family meal out in Ohakune. Tasty, beautifully cooked & presented food and wine at sensible prices, all with a friendly smile. Just great.

“Tremedous service and great food - don't pass them by.”
Reviewed April 30, 2014

Went for evening meal over Easter. We have had brunch and coffees there a few times before were impressed.
Walked in off the street about 7.30pm and were made to feel very welcome and special.
The service was amazing, they made a special salad to order for one of our party that was superb, the mains (steak) were excellent and cooked exactly as ordered.
Nothing was too much trouble and we had a great evening.

“Great evening”
Reviewed April 19, 2014

Had a really nice family dinner, the service was really good, very friendly, well humoured and nothing was a problem. I would recommend the mexican chocolate cake and it was perfectly matched with the port, I will be back for this.
My girlfriend and I have dined at OCR before and had a very pleasant evening as well.
