“Fabulous position”
Reviewed February 21, 2014

The building is stunning as part of Stone Store group of buildings and we were told earlier in the day that bookings were essential!! Naturally we booked: definitely not necessary on a week night.There was six of us, and as most restaurants in Northland seem to think everyone eats fish, it is very difficult for my son who does not. There are hundreds of people who do not eat fish for different reasons and they should be catered for. The staff were great, the restaurant is old and maintained in the original style. The food is very over priced for "Fish and Chips" (not many other choices).

“Very bad experience”
Reviewed February 19, 2014

Went for dinner while in KeriKeri from Wellington. Poor service - waitress told us there were no good NZ wines and raved about European ones (pretty bad when she's working in a NZ restaurant!). Waited for ages as well - poor service.
Food when it arrived was tough and overcooked - the fish, the pork and the lamb.
Avoid The Pear Tree like the plague.
Very sad as the food here used to be great and we've eaten there many times over the years and the location is wonderful. We've been sitting the town. Shape up or ship out basically.

“Outstanding setting!”
Reviewed February 13, 2014 via mobile

Wow. Great staff and great scenery.
What a wonderful setting with extremely good value-for-money portions and a wide selection on an interesting menu.
Top chef, me thinks.
Thanks Stephanie et al - you were amazing hosts.
Well done. We had such a great dinner we went back the next day for lunch!

“Beautiful outlook”
Reviewed February 7, 2014

Beautiful location right on the waters edge makes the standard urban restaurant feel somewhat dull. Great fish too..

“The Best Meal!”
Reviewed February 6, 2014

We had just walked the 8km to and from the Rainbow Falls and called in for dinner on the hop before we returned to our hotel.
We were met by a delightful waitress from Dunedin. Our meal was excellent. It was served in a very short time. My husband had a steak which was spot on. I had lamb rump and it was beautiful. Complements to the chef who was the waitress" husband!
