Cuisine: Bistro, Cafe, New Zealand
Price Point: Mains from $25 - $35+

This might just be Taranaki’s best kept secret!

The cute heritage cottage has a warm and friendly atmosphere. Take a seat by the open fire or dine al fresco on the patio.

Start with tasty crumbed calamari or pork cheek terrine before enjoying perfectly cooked potato gnocchi or succulent sirloin steak with rosemary and thyme potatoes. Other favourites include fish or the day and chicken mignon stuffed with spinach and cream cheese and wrapped in streaky bacon.

Dishes are delicately and beautifully presented. Save room for one of their irresistible desserts (think crème brûlée with sorbet) or sit by the fire with a coffee and one of Kauri Cottage’s popular sweet slices.

I fully recommend dining at Kauri Cottage, the atmosphere was welcoming, quite and peaceful, our food was cooked to perfection, was a great size and we enjoyed every mouthful. We were very well looked after at our table and any questions were answered easily. I am definitely looking forward to booking another table very soon.

The food was great and delicious. All of us ordered different things and I had a moment of food envy at what the rest of the table ordered, but as soon as I tasted it, I did not regret my choice. The staff were very pleasant and friendly. Will definitely go return to the Kauri cottage for another meal.

We had a lovely evening at Kauri Cottage. The staff were very helpful and friendly and were able to advise us that the fish could be prepared in rice batter which was great for those who were gluten free among us. My sons really enjoyed their fish and chips and Ice cream sundaes for dessert. I enjoyed the chicken mignon and also delicious scallop starter We will be back:-)

Food was absolutely amazing!!! Service was great, and the place was very welcoming! Only downfall was that it was cold, I think the fire had only just been started so there was no heat at all. Maybe start the fire earlier in the day or get some heaters. Apart from that it was lovely! We will be back!

Fantastic helpful and friendly service from our lovely waitress who was new to the job. The menu was varied, with something for everyone. However, my partner has a limited palette, so the chef altered the menu which was much appreciated. Fine dining at its best in a pleasant, relaxing atmosphere, complete with an open fire.

Had a lovely time with friends, great company, great food, great service. The menu has an excellent range of choices besides the steak option that was not available for first table diners. We all enjoyed ourselves and we were able to sit and chat comfortably in quiet congenial surroundings. Would recommend Kauri Cottage dining to others and also had a look at their great lunch-time menu and would this as an alternative to night dinning.

We weren't sure what to expect when we booked as the restaurant is under new management. Well we were pleasantly surprised. A great choice of food.
We shared the calamari for starter, very good indeed. Well seasoned and very well cooked.
For mains we had chicken mignon which was a nice smoked chicken breast wrapped in bacon. Served with seasonal vegetables and mustard mash this made a nice balanced meal. We also had the lamb rump, again well seasoned and cooked pretty much to perfection.
For dessert the berry cheesecake is worth a shot. The creme brulee is also very good served with orange sorbet.
Couple of negative points.
The sorbet was sat on top of the brulee and the sprouts with the chicken were Black.
Apart from these minor niggles the meal was hard to fault.
Prices we thought were a little bit high. Service was excellent but it was very quiet.
Give it a go, if you get a meal like we did you will not be disappointed

This was our first dinner out together as a new Mum and Dad and what a great first venture out it was. While the food wasn’t out of this world amazing, it still rocked our socks off and the service was incredible! They were quick to personally point out all the gluten free options which gave them so many brownie points, and gave a great recommendation on a rose which went down a treat. All up, mama was happy!

After our last great experience at Kauri Cottage,my wife and I were compelled to make another visit. Well, I can assure food tragics out there it was even better than before. The chef and staff effortlessly once again performed their magic. We both went home extremely content with our experience.
