Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Friendly service, nice cosy setting, but the ribs were underwhelmingly disappointing, even though this place came highly recommended by a friend. For the price I paid, and the history of the establishment, I expected better tasting ribs. Kids enjoyed their pasta though!More

We came by after a lake cruise for nostalgia's sake since there aren't any branches in Auckland. Cousins came over for a holiday and thought it would be a good time to try it again. We didn't book but was able to get a fairly...large table without any issues. The food menu looked very similar as did the drinks menu. I grabbed a pink panther and cousin got the traffic lights. The pink panther seemed a little different and the traffic lights was a slushy, but I remember it being a drink. I had the stuffed schnitzel and that was nice. The sticky date pudding and chocolate indulgence was a nice way to end a meal. The food was alright but it was a bit different from what I remembered as a kid.More

I’m not one to complain so this is a first … Wasn’t very happy with the quality of food considering how much I had to pay, kids food was good but my meal was raw when Served, was sent back and came back still raw...in the centre, dry on the outside and unappetising the salad had no dressing and was dry but the chips were good. Also the size of the desert was not worth the $15, Servers were lovely but wasn’t an effort to make the meal enjoyable. I’m disappointed in the food hopefully others have a more enjoyable meal and experience.More

Helpful staff and a broad menu made our family birthday dinner a wonderful experience. The only slight problem was slow Cobb crunchies coming to the table but drinks were quick and the meals didn’t take an unreasonable time. We all enjoyed our choices- lamb rump..., ribs and pork. Delicious and tasty. The cherry was a small chocolate cupcake with a candle for our birthday girl. Most appreciated. Thoroughly recommend.More

I usually just review hotels but I just had to review Cobb & Co in Taupo as I was really impressed! We went here after going in Rotorua and discovering the kids play area (I wish more restaurants had this to keep kids entertained). The...service was fantastic! We eat out alot (at least a couple of times a week) and it’s been a long time since we have experienced such friendly, professional and attentive service. We were never left waiting. Because of the attention, we ordered more drinks and even desert. The food was great too!More
