Food was pretty good and the decor is great, nice and warm. What was really cool was they ran out of gingerbeer and the waiter sprinted over to the supermarket to get some more so we didn't miss out. Was funny making and order and then seeing our waiter running past the window!!!!

Brilliant service, excellent delicious food reasonably priced. Beautiful and warm with the open fire going, most inviting. Great family friendly restaurant. Yum.

We were given a voucher worth$80.00 for 4 people towards the cost of our main courses,The Cyprus tree was lovely we had a variety off the menu and for 4 people with drinks it was excellent value for money, you can imagine this place in the winter as being THE place to go,a big fire and hot chocolates all round

My friend and i took a trip down to Ohakune during the Anzac weekend. We were to trying find an open bar and we found the Cyprus Tree as we had had a long trip down an were looking for some food. We got in, looked at the food menu and to our suprise we were told by the lady on duty that the chief wasnt in til 5pm so we couldnt have food not even fries til then. We entered at 3.15pm. Having been a duty manager myself in hospo for years this suprised me greatly as it is illegal and irresponsible to serve alcohol on a licensed premises without food. When questioned i was answered 'well the chef is entitled to a break' in quite a snappy tone. I also noticed a good 20 dirty empty glasses sitting on the bar which were clearly from the night before and the tables had crumbs. The manager on duty never once made an effort to clean the place up. It wasnt til about 4 til other staff came in that any effort was made to clean the place up. We ended up heading down the road to grab some fish an chips. Setting was nice but shame about the lack of interest in basic customer service.

I will start with the positives, food was awesome very tasty and well thought out (though the steak was slightly over cooked) and atmosphere was good, staff were friendly and happy to assist. Unfortunately what let them down was a lack of staff, you could quite obviously tell they were run off their feet on Anzac saturday, they did have 3 staff but another member would have assisted (the bar was often covered with empty glasses), meals did take at least 45 mins to arrive.

Even with the above said, I would still consider dining here at a later date and giving them another shot, as overall it was a nice evening.
