Dined here recently for lunch with a party of 9. Service was very good and didn't have to wait too long for entrees and meals. Menu has a reasonable selection although a lot of fried food. I chose the Coconut Chicken which was a chicken breast marinated and cooked in spices with toasted coconut on top, served with rice and... More

I have been to Cobb and Co Whakatane twice and both times I've found the service good, the food delicious, the drinks fine, but I found the lighting a little too dim for my liking. Also there were a couple of things missing from the ice cream sundaes: the cherry on top that was on the photo of the dish... More

First off, the staff and service were excellent. However the food didn't quite match. The pork roast and veges were tasteless, i was searching for the gravy to add some flavour, and the chicken breast was dry also. Felt a bit ripped off for the amount we paid.

Hi K1217. Thanks for dining with us. We're glad you loved our staff! It's dissapointing you did not find the meals to be up to the same standard. We'd love a second opportunity to show you how delicious our meals can be. On you next visit, we recommended the Country Ribs or Chicken Fettuccine. These dishes are packed full of... More

I was in whakatane last week, while I was there I went to my childhood restaurant to reminisce in the good old days.

Brilliant night out with family, made even better by the excellent service from the bar manager Alex. Friendly, chatty, knowledgeable about what was nice on the menu...can't speak highly enough of the whole experience. Even on a busy night, Alex went out of his way to seat us and serve us personally - made the night thoroughly enjoyable and an... More

Greeted and seated by a our waitress 'Uri' who made my family and I feel welcome with warm smiles and light laughters. We started with the buffalo wings which were "Beautiful", my husband had the Pork which was tender, and I had the Catch and it was "Devine", with a slight adjustment made my dish faultless. Wonderful food, great service... More

We booked a table of 6 adults and 3 children for 7pm, showed up at 6.55pm to be told our table had been given to someone else, so we had to wait for them to sort another table (this was not a problem). We were seated about 7.10pm and then by 7.30pm the waitress had still not been to our... More

This was the worst experience I have ever encountered at a restaurant. We had a table booked in advance for 12 people so there was some warning to expect a big booking, the restaurant wasn't even full up. From the moment we ordered our entree it was a disaster, someone received their entree only for it to be removed as... More
