I really like this place. Each time I have been, the food has always been good and the service is reasonably fast. The atmosphere is always fun and I always look forward to going because I know it will be good.
Had my birthday lunch here this year and it was lovely. I got the mushrooms on toast and they where fair portion and flavor some. The bread though - Id recommend a sour dough or something to side it with. My mate got he Brie...and chicken Burger - she loved it. The Mojitos where yummm as well and our friendly waiter was lovely. All round good experience.More
My wife and I own a 100 seat restaurant in Tonga. I heard the Orchard food was good. My friend (a retired Tonga Supreme Court judge) and I tried to sit down for a glass of wine while we waited for our Indian food next...door. I am a US citizen trying to get to Tonga, and my friend is Kiwi. He showed his Kiwi pass for vaccination, and I showed him my vax card, certifying I was vaxed and boosted. I had recently gotten out of NZ quarantine. He totally dismissed my card without even looking at it, and gruffly turned his back on us, basically saying get the hell out. What an idiot.More
Really pleased with our meals here. The wait wasn't that long considering we ordered alot with a table of 6 and it was pretty busy when we arrived. Drinks were brought promptly and colouring things to keep my 6 year old occupied...amen!!!
Nice atmosphere and...we were all very satisfied with our delicious food. Will be back againMore
Stopped in here on our way north with a group of friends, very pricey I must say. $17 for a beer and a raspberry/lemonade (worse than Auckland prices..😉). Also really disappointed with the management as they got really precious over the children with us, apparently...making too much noise. Funny how we could hear the music, all the other patrons talking and the children were hardly noticeable and really well behaved ( there were 10 of them, sat in their seats, ate their sundaes and only got up when we left). All at 4pm on a Sunday!! Not a family friendly atmosphere, staff ok, service ok, won’t be returning anytime soon. Sorry.More
We eat here for the whole three nights stay in Tauranga. The menu or menus give you a wide variety to choose from, i.e. pizza, pasta, seafood, burgers & lots more. We had a pizza & pasta dish the first night. Both ordered fish the...second night. I had it without batter on mashed potato. Hubby stuck to the traditional fish & chips. On the last night enjoyed scallops cooked to perfection while I watched hubby devour the lamb shank. He also enjoyed the ice-cream sundae on the three occasions. Amy was outstanding with her customer skills making us feel very welcome.More
In November, I rated this restaurant 5 stars.
Of course we went back and placed our order, only to find that if we shared a main we'd be charged an additional $5. Even though we ordered 2 x entrees and 2 x desserts as well....Will we go back now?
No, we've since found new favorite restaurants, where they don't charge for sharing a main.More
Ordered a Pina Colada $15 & got a pineapple slushy. Could not taste Rum or cream & way too much ice with barely enough pineapple. Should have been better.
Shame as it was GF birthday & place looks nice.
Cannot comment on food.
