Booked at the last minute and got a lovely table on the deck.
The servers are all lovely and recognize us from previous visits which is lovely. The drinks and food came quickly and was delicious. I had the salt and pepper squid which was beautiful and tender.
Highly recommend Riverstone Kitchen and highly recommend booking to save being disappointed because they are always flat out!

Good atmosphere and friendly staff. Great choice of local fresh produce, meat, fish, vegetables. Nice setting with few shops, playground and vegetables garden. Plenty of open space and a castle on the back overlooking the mountains.

Great staff, friendly and helpful. Caters for children as well as adults. Great wee stores to do some shopping in while the kids are in the playground.

Food nowhere near as good as the restaurants in Oamaru. They have no idea on good table management and make a poor attempt at dishing up a second rate dish. We sampled the food at five restaurants during our stay in oamaru and riverstone cones nowhere near any of the others in town. Stay well clear if you want a nice experience.

Nice place to take the family for a meal and a play and a walk around lots to see from a castle to animals to homegrown veg for the restaurant . The gift shop alone will keep you all busy looking at stuff for ages we ended up spending 2 hours out there with the family eating and playing, a great time had by all , great photo opportunities too
