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.

We ate dinner here during our travels round the Coromandel Peninsula. Service was good and we given seating on the veranda. The restaurant was surprisingly busy and a steady flow continued during our meal. My wife chose the chowder and enjoyed it. I had the...BBQ ribs - the sauce was a little on the sweet side but I rated the meal as a good one. Coromandel is a lovely little town and you can enjoy a good meal at the Pepper Tree whilst watching the daily activities in the centre of town.More

The food here was good and the atmosphere was quite pleasant. What was disappointing was being handed an iPad mini to peruse and order. The staff that was there were welcoming. Just very impersonal -

Pulled pork taco is better than I've had at other places. Nana enjoyed the Calamari. The dessert was excellent. Fudge sundae and Nana had crumble. Beautiful. Love the ordering system. On the tablet and they have pics too. Easy to use.

Nice place to eat if you can get an outside table. We had several good meals and one very disappointing steak. Service mainly very good but the odd glitch now and again.

All orders are taken from an IPad on your table. We were 2 people. 1st main course arrived when starter wasn’t finished 2nd main course arrived 20 minutes later No customer service whatsoever, waitress blamed the electronics for delay…but didn’t offer any compensation when we...complained. Oysters were good but fish & chips ordinary and spare ribs tasted as if dripped in jam. Our worse experience in NZ… A surcharge of $5 is applied if you pay from your table (not applied if you go to the counter) but not mentioned .More

My wife and I are visiting Coromandel Peninsula and had plans to dine at the Pepper Tree - and loved it so much we came back the next night! Located under a beautiful Pepper Tree, the atmosphere is a lovely dining spot. The server, Sylvia,...was excellent; sharing information about the items on the menu. Sometimes a server just serves their purpose, but we found Sylvia engaging and delightful - she added to our experience! On night one we had an entree of the delicious green lipped mussels, followed by a warm vegetable salad and fish and chips. Night two we had a Ika Mata- Tuna entree followed by the grilled tuna and lamb main dishes. Everything was excellent!! We highly recommend this restaurant when visiting Coromandel. You won’t be disappointed! And if you get lucky, Sylvia will be your server!More

We came to Pepper Tree for lunch on a Monday afternoon and had a great meal. Flavorful food, friendly (though a bit too tech heavy!) service, and lovely outdoor seating. Our family of 3 (2 adults and 1 child, aged 5) had the following: 1)...1/2 dozen oysters - pretty good 2) Shrimp - excellent (our favorite dish!) 3) Warm Vegetable Salad with Lamb skewer - delicious 4) Chicken pizza with cashews and bananas - very unique and surprisingly good 5) Waffle and bacon kids meal - my daughter enjoyed this, though she said she liked the shrimp even more! You seat yourself, and order on a tablet they bring to you, which is different, but expedient. We only wish someone had come by a few minutes in to answer any questions. The staff that brought the food and cleared the table was friendly and prompt. We loved sitting outdoors on the front patio. Overall, this was a lovely spot for lunch in Coromandel.More
