Cuisine: A La Carte, Cafe, New Zealand
Price Point: Mains from $25 - $35

In its seedling days, it was a local orchard and veggie market. Since then it has grown into this neat little cafe and with a long history as the local watering hole, you'll find yourself coming back again and again.

Beautifully bright and serene, The Orchard House's dining space feels like a spacious conservatory with enough natural light that you might consider taking some sun cream! Whitewashed walls, white furnishings and towering glass doors might trick you into thinking the beach is on the doorstep. But who says that's a bad thing?

From their abundant orchard come veggies that have travelled a remarkably short distance to your plate. Taste what they have to offer for starters with their tomato and basil chowder or the vibrant carrot, orange, ginger and chickpea bitterballen that makes their home-grown produce the star of the show. And rightly so.

The theme continues into mains with the Orchard House chicken cordon bleu that comes with fries and a garden salad, the hash steak that comes with a corn, capsicum and mango salsa and crispy tofu and cashew salad that would be lost without the orchard whipping up a killer slaw and an endless supply of luscious greens.

Reviews

This is our favourite restaurant because it offers innovative, delicious food and they are not phased by requests for gluten free, dairy free and cornflour free meals. We travelled an hour each way to eat here but it is worth it.
I tell everyone it's the best place to stop for a meal...breakfast, lunch or dinner. You will not be disappointed at this "must-try" restaurant.
The husband and wife chefs are an outstanding team.

We had an excellent first experience with First Table at the Orchard house! It's a bit far out for us usually, but first table's discount encouraged us to head out a bit further and we decided to turn it into a little day trip with a visit to the beach nearby! On arrival, being the first table they guessed who we were and greeted me by name which was lovely! We were sat on a sunny table by the garden and the waitress helped us find the vegan dishes on the menu, and we were pleased to see quite a few options for us which was a treat! We were very impressed with the food, made with very fresh local ingredients from their orchard, and the presentation was beautiful. We really loved the Bitterballen's to start, like giant crispy falafels with a beautiful cranberry sauce, something a bit different! And the decadent chocolate mousse for dessert was divine! A perfect evening with some fantastic food! We will definitely be making our way back out here again! Thank you!

Delicious food that was well presented. Generous servings.
We were served by a very capable young girl who if she didn’t know something went and asked. A delight.
We would thoroughly recommend this restaurant.

What a delight! We arrived for the first time at The Orchard and were immediately impressed with the rural garden like setting. Plenty of room for the kids to run around while we perused the impressive menu. We ordered a dream meal for each of us and the kids were very happy with the selections available to them. The waitress was very helpful, bringing the kids food out quickly while we enjoyed a glass of wine and the outstanding Calamari starter! The main, we both had the Fillet of Beef was so amazing and such generous portions that we were forced to wait until our next visit to sample the very tempting desert menu. We did not need to order the sides as there was ample on our plate. First time here and will not be the last. Thank you.

Best dinner dining ever and we highly recommend it. Food was amazingly good and the atmosphere was lovely and relaxing. The husband and wife chefs are also able to accommodate food allergies by substituting other yummy options. We were very impressed with how the food was cooked to perfection in delicious, new and innovative ways. We hope we can get back soon.

We are so glad we found the Orchard Cafe on here. We had a lovely family dinner. Everything was fabulous and we will definitely be going back. We even purchased some goodies, spicy jam and some of their homemade salad dressing which is yum!
Thanks

Delicious dinner by the fire in a gorgeous country setting. Lovely friendly service and great variety for different dietary needs! Plenty to choose from. My husband liked the generous size of the meal. For me, the dairy free coconut, chocolate and Kahlua mousse was to die for. I will definitely be back for more mousse and to try the new things on the menu.

Lovely casual atmosphere. Food was perfect as usual with the orchard, tasty and cooked beautifully. The service could have been a touch more professional but in fitting with the setting and casual atmosphere.
