“Great Food, Great Service”
Reviewed 8 September 2013

We walked in off the street after studying their menu, on a cold wet evening. A staff member came out to invite us in. It proved to be a warm haven with great food and table service.

The only down-side was the tables were too close together, so you became part of other people's conversations, like it or not, especially if they were in loud voice.

“Food great, service average”
Reviewed 3 September 2013 via mobile

Second visit in a matter of months. First visit was great all round. The service was average this time round, particularly when the bill was being paid. The food made up for it as the seafood chowder was amazing both times.

“My Favourite Place”
Reviewed 3 September 2013

My first experience at Triple 1 Five was for lunch with my son and it was fantastic! I had heard a lot about the restaurant from other people and just had to try it.
The food is just beautiful and the service is excellent! They have a laid back atmosphere while still being professional and they make your visit a dining experience to remember.
Hence, I have been there for dinner and numerous lunches since and plan to go again and again!

“Anniversary Date”
Reviewed 31 August 2013

Husband and I went to Triple one Five for a quiet celebration of our silver anniversary - 25 years. The meal was fantastic, and the service excellent. Husband had rib eye steak while I had a seafood pasta, plus the spanakopita hors d'oeuvre. We were wrapped in deliciousness. Then to our surprise and pleasure we were brought a fantastic desert, which was kindly created for our anniversary! We were delighted and had just the nicest celebration. We will definitely go back every chance we can.

“great restaurant, they go out of their way to be of help :)”
Reviewed 11 August 2013

We brought a last minute group of 10+ to this restaurant one evening while attending the Altrusa International Convention in Rotorua, and the manager went out of his way to make sure all was good. Everyone definitely enjoyed their meal ... the stone cooking was unusual and yummy. Overall I found alot of the food in NZ, although good, it was bland. Not here!! Would highly recommend this restaurant!!!
