“Homely and friendly ”

Kauri Cottage Cafe & Restaurant
Restaurant details
Reviewed 1 July 2017 via mobile

Arrived for lunch on a wet windy day .
Immediately stepping out of the car You are greeted with a very homely cosy country cottage / villa
On entering we were greeted with a warm welcome and asked if we would like a table for two secluded round a corner near the open roaring fire.
Such a refreshing homely atmosphere especially next to an open roaring fire not gas or artificial .
Our host Jagan was courteous polite and went the extra mile to make our meal and experience over lunch enjoyable.
I had seafood chowder and bread and butter pudding as dessert.
Totally delicious and presented well on both counts .
The coffee on arrival was superb and water was always filled .
The added touch was the way our tea was selected . We were offered the choice of 6 blends in seperate glass containers to smell the aromas before ordering . A nice touch . Would I go back again yes a lovely dining experience and a credit to Jagan and his team .

5 of us booked on a Saturday night when the Lions were playing and the restaurant was buzzing. Wait staff were great except for their use of "yous guys" enjoying your meals. Apart from that the meals were plentiful and varied. Fish of the day was beautifully cooked with a pea and bacon risotto. Calamari, cauliflower soup, haloumi were very tasty entrees. Didn't get to desserts but they also looked interesting. Would definitely return to try other dishes.
