Reviews

The vibe was cool, food was great, staff were friendly and attentive. Nice view over the harbour just in time for sunset!
Only downside was being excluded from happy hour drinks due to the booking being through first table.

Nice time here, but unfortunately the service wasn't great and they had run out of two menu items that we tried to order. It's in a beautiful spot and the food we did get was tasty.

The staff were very friendly and helpful in recommending food. We went there for lunch and the day time view was beautiful. The food was delicious but nothing special. I would go back for the service and scenery.

Lovely experience . Food magnificent. Oysters were exceptional - fresh and plump. Cauliflower side a must try . Shared cockle and muscle dish with chorizo had a real kick . We would thoroughly recommend.

Grabbed a seat by the fire on an especially nippy evening. The ambiance was perfect; fairly dim, not too noisy, and the food was quick and hearty. The service was also excellent.

I would like to say this was my first experience dining at culpeper and with first table. I dined there with my two sisters and it was amazing. The staff were so lovely and I really didn't expect them to pour us our water which I found so lovely and considerate. We had an amazing time, the food was great and I will definitely consider dining with you again. Thank you once again! I am one happy customer :)

Our table of 4 visited on a Friday evening and there was a great vibe. We enjoyed the dishes we ordered with special mention going to the Tempura Oysters, Tuna Poke, Ribs and the Mac 'n Cheese. Lots of outdoor tables with a nice outlook to the harbour. Would recommend The Culpeper to others!

This was our first time at The Culpeper, and we really enjoyed it! From the spicy Korean chicken and cauliflower dish for starters, then our lovely mains (the Wakatipu beef brisket and pork belly), and the apple pie dessert- we finished everything within the hour and literally cleaned our plates! Service was great too, staff was very friendly and attentive. We're so glad we got the chance to dine at The Culpeper! Thanks!

Absolutely loved our experience here! Such a cool place with great decor and atmosphere. We had the Korean Spiced Crispy Chicken Wings (delightfully crunchy), Grass fed Scotch fillet with jalapeno chimichurri (amazingly tender) and the Jalapeno corn bread (SO YUM) - and absolutely loved each one. Will definitely be coming back here again.

Had our dinner at Culpeper, it was a really nice experience!

The food was so good, we ordered spicy chicken wings as a smaller plate to share, scotch fillet and skirt steak as our main dish. The scotch fillet is legit, it's juicy and the flavor is just right! The potion for each dish is normal.

The environment is good, but we have been arranged into the inside tables. I don't know whether it's because we booked from First Table or some other reasons, cause I am sure there are more outside tables. The bathroom decoration is unique and the candles smell good.

Overall we really enjoy the experience of dining in Culpeper, will definitely go again!

I and my 2 friends had a really lovely meal; we all had the Salmon and it was beautifully cooked. The staff were friendly and attentive without being too "in your face". We would dine here again.

I've been to The Culpeper on a number of occasions. As it was a nice day we sat outside to look out over the water. Unfortunately all of the Princes Wharf traffic was being directed past The Culpeper (cars, trucks, buses - at least 6 buses). This made the experience less nice than it should have been.

However, the service was very good and I'll definitely go back again. Hopefully they sort out the traffic issue soon.

OMG YUM! Our group of 4 ordered a number of small plates and a couple of mains to share between us. Everything was so full of flavour, and was so well-presented. A strong favourite of mine was the Tuna Poke - what a treat! I'm so pleased I saved room for dessert, because the pie-of-the-day was chocolate custard pie, and boy was it good! Our waitress was attentive and helpful. The Culpeper has a lovely atmosphere and views of the harbour. Can't fault it!
