Such friendly staff and the food was fresh and beautifully presented and delicious. I ate far too much. The fish soup as a starter was to die for. So well priced. I highly recommend.

It was a busy weekend and 3 of us had decided to stay in Raglan. After looking in the street for somewhere to have dinner, we walked towards the Orca Restaurant and bar and asked for a table. A lot of tables were reserved or busy and we were advised that they had seats available but outside in their courtyard,... More

Trip out to Raglan for lunch, decided on Orca. Reasonably busy, had a beer whilst waiting for lunch , almost too long for meals to arrive but they were very nice. Fish and Chips and a Bacon and Chicken Sourdough sandwich. Both very tasty and well priced. Would recommend,

Waited in the bar for our table of 6 to be seated and we had to check when the table was free! To be fare they could have accommodated us outside right away but it was chilly. Food was good but not amazing. Two of our group ordered the special Salmon and were still hungry afterwards so they tucked into... More

We ate here our first night in Raglan because of the good reviews and location. The lamb rump was very good, the pork belly rather ordinary. Overall certainly not disappointing but nothing special. Full bar and outside seating overlooking the water.

Food was ok but prices were very high. We booked a table before going as it was pretty crowded being a Friday. Some people had to wait for an hour to be served.

I wish I could comment on the food. Unfortunately, after 30mins of sitting at a table (that we were shown to) and trying to get wait staff attention, we left without even getting to place a drinks order. We talked to another table who arrived after us and were waiting 20+ mins to be served also. When they were eventually... More
