“Excellent Family Dining”
Reviewed 11 March 2014

We had the family down for Christmas, and decided to do a return trip to The cabbage Tree. A wide variety of meals on the menu, for both adults and children. Very reasonable priced and you do get your money's worth! If you know your'e going to be drinking, there is a courtesy coach available to pick you all up, and drop you home again, after your satisfying/filling meal. Very handy to Oreti Beach, should you wish to go for a walk after your meal. Well worth the visit.

“Least favourite”
Reviewed 11 March 2014

After 3 bad experiences at the Cabbage Tree, it would have to be my least favourite restaurant in Invercargill. To be fair, the food is okay, but the service is terrible.

“Be very careful what you order”
Reviewed 11 March 2014

Or you might have to take it home in a doggie bag. We go there often. Never fails to impress. It always seems to be busy when we go there, that has to be a good sign.

“Huge selection. Excellent food.”
Reviewed 30 January 2014

This must be one of the biggest menus in New Zealand. So much choice. If you can't find something to take your fancy then you must hate food. Large restuarant but as it's split into a few areas has a great ambiance. We went for lunch on a quiet day and the waitress (Shaen) was an absolute mine of information about the local area. Forced ourselves to have a pudding as the selection was incredible. But be warned - one is enough for 2-3 people. Highly recommended.
And if you're staying in Invercargill there's even a courtesy bus. What more could you ask for?
