A great variety of food on offer. Was told, though, that there would be a 45 minute wait. Initially left to check out another. Not in the same class at all. So we returned and we were so pleased we did. Friendly staff. Lovely surroundings. Excellent food.

Having visited the Stone House during the day and with limited options in Kerikeri on a Monday evening, we booked a table at the Pear Tree. Great service from the staff, reasonably limited menu options if you don't eat meat, however we enjoyed our meal.

Our motel had recommended this restaurant for our first night at Kerikeri. The night was balmy and we were delighted to have a drink outside whilst we waited for our table ( we had arrived early intentionally). The restaurant is on the banks of a river with great views and a fabulous atmosphere. Service very good. Attentive and knowledgeable. Food... More

The setting is special; overlooking a small inlet in an historic place. The service was excellent. The Scotch fillet was as ordered and excellent. They messed up my wife's order. She asked for grilled fish and chips and they brought deep fried. They offered to make it right but we said it would be OK. It was a good experience... More

We recently went for a meal here... It's pretty good. 6 adults & 4 kids. We had some small children who were fairly well behaved - that can always be stressful! I'd say the the service was good, some of the food was great - my burger was excellent. My partner had pasta which sounded and looked good but was... More

This was a return visit as my first was a great experience sadly not today. The service was slow I had to remind them I ordered wine. I ordered the crumpets with honey bacon and mascopone expecting it to be the same as days prior but it wasn't. There was no honey and when I mentioned it to the young... More

Now I'm not complaining about it being bad but for the price we were paying I expected more savory food and better prepared. However, the chocolate mousse was exceptionally good.
