“Don't judge by appearances!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 February 2014 via mobile

I can't say that I was impressed by the Three Rooms restaurant from its external appearance, and if it had not been for the recommendation from the proprietor of the B&B we are staying at, would probably not have chosen it. However, this restaurant offered a very good value for money dinner with excellent cooking. I had a vegetarian filo parcel starter which was an excellent appetiser, followers by a slow cooked lamb shank that was beautifully tender. My wife started with the chicken liver pate followed by salmon. Again both were great, and at NZ$30 for two courses offered great value. Well worth a try.

“Great food, service and great value”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 February 2014

We came cross this little restaurant by chance while on business. No reservation, however we were welcomed by charming staff. Service was quick, friendly and efficient. The meals were very good, excellent value for $35 for 3 courses and all very tasty and good meal portions. Good selection of wine and staffs recommendations in respect of wine was great.
Would definitely return when in Richmond again.

“Great food but service poor”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 February 2014 via mobile

Excellent value with three courses for $35. I did notice the portion sizes are smaller than we have had previously. I do enjoy the food here at the price. But the service is poor. Either get there early, or be prepared to have lengthly delays. Unfortunately we were in a hot room with a nearby table a group booking. It wasnt the restaurants fault the two children were very noisey, but then the coffee machine started up and it was noisey. Headache coming on! Its good nz food, but the service is quite abrupt and poor. I guess they have to keep prices down but we werent asked how our meal was, ran out of water and asked for more but it never came.

“Understaffed and undercooked but nice prices.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 February 2014

Very limited menu but good prices. $5 corkage fee and $30 each for main course and desert. An older interior but kind of charming with the wood working and decor.

Arrived with a reservation at 6:30. Lots of great 2 person tables but they would not seat us at them claiming they were already taken. OK so we sat at another table. It was an hour and a half before anyone came to take the table that I asked for.

Orders were taken promptly. It took the server quite a while to find a corkscrew for our bottle of wine. Amusing but just the start of our serving ordeal.

The main courses were delivered promplty. My wife's Beef Wellington was fine. My salmon was undercooked short of rare and I had to send it back. When it came back it was fine. Some delay for that as the place started to fill after 7.

Then a long wait followed before our desert orders were taken and delivered. They were fine. Nothing extremely fancy but good. Then another long wait and no bill delivered. Finally we got up and went to reception and one of the servers compiled our bill.

The place was busy and there were clearly not enough servers to cover the people eating. Lots of small problems made it a less than pleasant dining expeince for me.
