Today our whole family drop off our brother to the navy and decided to use the buy one get one free voucher to try new food.

The service was good, food was good nothing really special, environment was ok bit different as its got its own style hand made plates, cutleries.

However, the cleaness of the plates and culteries was just horrible. The plates given to us was used by other customer and not washed……

Corellis is my regular. The cafe does great milkshakes, coffees and amazing cabinet food. The baked cheesecake, chocolate brownies and lemon slices are divine. Corellis is also a great setting for a wine at the outdoor seating in the summer or a seafood chowder on the couches inside in the winter. The portion sizes are generous and the service is great. Lovely friendly atmosphere that is a favourite to the locals in devonport and Takapuna.

After walking around Devonport and finding that most of the dozen or so restaurants were charging some pretty hefty sums for dinner, we decided to visit Corelli's upon seeing their $15 dinner special.

Upon entering the restaurant, we were greeted by a very personable and friendly hostess/owner?. Off topic but I LOVE New Zealand b/c good restaurant service means so much more when you know they're not working for your tip. The lady was genuinely nice and welcomed us to New Zealand as it was our first day there.

I had the fish pie special which was great and the pavlova was to die for! I kept searching for pavlova our whole trip and never found one like the one we had at Corelli's. My husband had the chicken korma which he said was very fresh and flavorful.

The atmosphere is upbeat and relaxed, much like a coffeehouse.

Corelli's, thank you for a wonderful introduction to New Zealand!

Siamo stati un paio di volte da corelli.

Abbiamo avuto modo di provare il caffè (molto buono, complimenti), il cappuccino (buono anch'esso) e delle ottime fette di torta a base di muesli e frutta secca, così buone che non abbiamo resistito dal portarcele anche a casa.

Nel complesso, per quello che abbiamo visto, il locale meriterebbe almeno 4 stelle.
La valutazione che invece diamo è di 3 stelle, perchè una volta la signora al banco, dopo aver chiesto a signore più anziano, ha provato a fregarci facendoci pagare di più un prodotto che presentava ben esposto il cartellino 2$.
La cosa ovviamente non ci ha fatto piacere, e l'unico motivo per il quale ci siamo tornati (con gli occhi ancora più aperti per altre fregature) è per la qualità dei prodotti.
Molto carina invece la ragazza più giovane.

We have been a couple of times by corelli.

We got to try the coffee (very good, congratulations), cappuccino (also good) and great slices of cake with muesli and dried fruit, so good that we could not resist from drop them at home too.

Overall, for what we have seen, the place deserves at least 4 stars.
The assessment that instead we give is 3 stars, because once the lady at the counter, after asking older gentleman, she tried to trick us making us pay more for a product that had the well exposed card $ 2.
It obviously did not make us pleasure, and the only reason why we came back (with eyes still more open to other disappointments) is for the quality of the products.
Very cute instead the youngest girl

We visited Corelli's one cold Sunday evening- the rest of Devonport high street was deserted, but Corelli's was packed with locals, creating a vibrant atmosphere. The staff were extremely welcoming, and the home cooked roast dinner was great, and a bargain at $15 for two courses!
