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.

On a Monday night this place was packed with local people eating as well as a few tourists - always a positive sign re good food and value for money. The food was excellent, tasty, fresh and wholesome (we did not leave hungry). Lovely to...experience a venue with local families - a great atmosphere with a lot of laughter and smiles.More

We arrived in Oamaru tired and hungry, and decided to try one of the few places that were open on a Sunday evening. What a wonderful surprise to have one of the best meals we’ve had in New Zealand! The pull-apart bread was amazing and...the warm salad was so delicious. The biggest surprise was my husband’s meal. He ordered steak and he is very very picky, but he said it was one of the best steaks he’d had in his life and it was cooked perfectly! Thanks so much for making our short stay in Oamaru delightful.More

New owners still have the same menu but things have changed. Blue cod was mushy and not flaky, salads minimal, plates past over the top of everybody across the table and not served nicely but to be asked if you want dessert and be given...the menu before you have finished the main is somewhat daunting and no time to enjoy your meal.More

While chatting with a helpful employee at The Presence on Harbour gift shop, she recommended this local restaurant/pub. True to her word, during our time there, we didn't see any other tourists...which was fun! We ordered two bowls of hearty Seafood Chowder and Cod Fillets....The portions were generous and reasonably priced. Our server was very friendly and attentive.More

The lamb loin chop was tender and juicy, tasted great. The warm winter salad was surprisingly rich in contents and tasty. The seafood curry was also good.

Excellent service from the phone booking with Trevor to the welcoming & efficient waitresses. Both of us had the (huge) steak, cooked to perfection accompanied by some nice Mt. Difficulty Pinot Noir. Very popular. Lovely historic building. Make sure you book.

called in for a quick coffee but decided to stay on for a couple of lunch specials which were excellent - a nice touch was seeing the chef come into the bar to add the beer to the batter for the fish. Absolutley everything done...fresh and on the spotMore

This place was chosen weeks before as we had a sports event in town. We had a table of 22 booked and was told arriving after us was another large booking. Who turned out to be competitors from same event. The service was prompt staff...appeared relaxed and the meals arrived in a timely fashion considering the kitchen had one chef and this place was busy. Meals were generous and cooked to our liking.More
