“Beautiful lamb”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 August 2013

Based on the other reviews and being that we were staying locally we decided to walk down and try the shoulder of lamb with potatoes. It was really great, with so much flavour. $35 and it was enough to feed two of us. Was yummo.
If you get the chance stop by to get takeaway, we only waited few minutes and the people were lovely.

“An experience not to be missed”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 July 2013

In those halcyon days before 22 Feb 2011 Pedro's restaurant was a favourite haunt and his lamb shoulder an absolute must. One very happy dog used to love having the leftover bone which was an essential to take home. Pedro suffered terrible tragedy as a result of 22 February losing a beloved son and also his restaurant. Now here he is in a pop-up caravan in Papanui once again offering his mouth-watering, melt-in-the mouth lamb shoulders along with scalloped potatoes. $35 will buy you a container to take home with enough for two. You will not be disappointed. So if you are a visitor staying in a nearby motel, or a local wanting a special treat, this is where to come. I suggest you ring and order in advance and just let Pedro know what time you will collect. You will be welcomed with his infectious smile and unfailing good humour.

“Delicious Lamb Shoulders”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 July 2013 via mobile

We ran out of time to go to a restaurant before dinner so we picked up some Pedros to have at our hotel room. Delicious lamb shoulder and potatoes. $35 for a big serve that fed both of us.
