Cobb & Co Papanui
It is part of the iconic New Zealand story.
The kids who went to Cobb & Co. growing up - the ones who remember the game sheet with its little red pencil and the Pink Panther drinks - they're all grown up and are parents now; who remember Cobb & Co. with awesome childhood and family memories!
It's the good old days, it's who we are and it's what we are bringing back!
We are proud to be New Zealand's Original Restaurant & Saloon.
In the kids meals the starter was not given we realized when nails and desserts had been eatin
Meals weren't value for money. Schnitzel was over cooked as was kids chicken. No meat on the ribs. Very disappointed in food overall.
Everything was fine except they forgot the children’s Cobb crunches.
All else was good.
Food was tasty, but so was the KFC we had after dining at Cobb n Co. We ordered a cob loaf and a main each. Food to be fair was tasty, just not enough of it and sadly we left hungry. For the price we paid - $90 for a cob loaf, a pork and fish main, 1 alcoholic and one soft drink ( so quite pricey ), the Lonestar offers similar menus and prices with near double the quantity.
Sorry to say we won't be back
The restaurant was full but the service remained fantastic and there was very little wait time for meals, everyone very happy with our dining experience.
Second time there - very impressed overall - really great staff and service
Busy night,but we're well looked after by our server,meals were fantastic, even made my granddaughter a takeaway traffic light drink. We will be back.
Music too loud and made conversation difficult.
The crumbed schnitzel was over cooked. The lemon tart had little lemon taste. The crunches were hard and dry.
Service was good, he kept checking.
Ordered lambs fry and bacon and was very disappointed Was not like anything I remember and just gravy seemed to be the main dish. Also the price was very expensive for a senior meal and sorry this is just not like the old Cobb and Co I remember
I liked my drink I ordered. It was huge and really nice. Was really surprised when my drink came out as a slushy in it instead of normal juice but all good. Another person on my table ordered a Traffic Light drink and didn't know it was a slushy drink she thought it was normal juice. So does all the juices have slushy in it?
Overall the meals were huge and really nice.
Lovely, clean happy atmosphere the service was amazing, plenty room for big families to dine. the food was good
Warmly greeted and shown to seats quickly. Very friendly wait staff. Great meal and wonderful cocktails. Will definitely be back again.
Service was amazing, however the food wasnt worth the price paid and chicken was raw in the center.
The Staff were quite pleasant, the place was FREEZING. My Friend and I went for the Lambs Fry and bacon on the Gold Card menu. It was slopped on the plate and looked and tasted most unappetising. My Friends meal had blood in her lambs fry and it was seeping into the “gravy. The Lady on Reception gave us $20 worth of vouchers each which wasvery kind of her, but we will not return .
Hi Brian! Sorry to read about your experience mate. We have since fixed our heating system so the restaurant should be nice and warm again. It sucks Brain, as that lamb's fry is such a good dish when prepared to out strict quality specifications. I'm glad to hear the team provided some vouchers for ya, and hope you will come and give us another crack in the future.
Fantastic had a great time thank you very very much
Food was terrible and my children didn't get their cob crunchies
Hey Alannah! We are guttered to hear your food didn't live up to your expectations or ours. Also heartbreaking to hear your little ones didn't get their Cobb Crunchies! If you find the time Alannah, could you email us at email@example.com so we can make this right for ya. Thanks for the feedback Alannah!
The service was fanastic, the food was so good I would most def recommend any one going out for dinner to go there. Kids meals were at a very fair price and the desserts were super kool the kids loved them.
Expensive for what it is. Meal had no flavor, chicken was over cooked and pasta was under cooked. Disappointing
Hey Jaz! The quality of the products we use and the systems we have in place to prepare and cook from fresh each day is what has set our prices to what they are, and when meals are cooked to the strict quality specifications we have in place, our teams couldn't be prouder to place our meals in front of our guests. It sucks we didn't deliver this to you that day and we apologise we didn't meet your expectations. If you are ever back our way Jaz, we hope to nail it for you then.
Great place for a family dinner. A little pricy but the food and service was outstanding.
Our waitress Jordyn was amazing!
The music was a little loud but that’s a personal thing, the selection of music was really good.
If you havent already tried this place, you should do
Wings are amazing and the service was outstanding
Great food and very quick service. A bit overpriced though.
Tough steak,couldn't eat it. Poorly presented dessert,given a large dessert spoon instead of the small sundae one.surly dessert waitress
A great family restaurant. Friendly, helpful and quick service. Kids loved the play area.
Great food and friendly staff, we will definitely be going back soon 😊👌
We had asked for a second bottle of water which never arrived.
Great place to dine with kids, good selection for children.
Great team work. and nice cordial staffs.. Food great. My kids liked it.. it was a treat for us..
While the setting was quite nice and the service was mostly good we found the food to be decidedly average at best.
Wonderful family night out. Waiter Kaitlin was brilliant, fun, efficient and added to our night.
Great for the family, kids and parents both really enjoyed! Will definitely be coming back.
Fantastic service at the table, food was prompt and tasty.
Our family thoroughly enjoyed the meal and great service from all the team. Very helpful and served us with a smile. The meals were perfect for the kids and size as well. We will defiantly be back.
Keep up the great work, we will help spread the word.
I was excited to eat at Cobb seafood chowder and roast pork, and lambs fry and bacon and chocolate sundae. The service was really friendly and prompt just a shame the food wasn’t great for 3/5 of our party.
Love coming to your place I came all the tine, my food was cold and I was not happy.
Hey There! There is nothing worse than disappointing a regular. I would imagine you are willing to give us another crack soon? Let us make it easier. We have a great team in Papanui and they will be guttered to have let you down. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can start a back and forth and work out a plan to make things right. A massive Cobb apology to you and your dining partners.
Lovely food and good service.
Music a bit loud.
My son did not get his tater tots to start his meal which he should of, an even though we had both finished our main before dessert was brought over the dirty plates and cups were not even cleared and being a small table was not very pleasant
So I asked for a raspberry and coke and that was yuk as didnt really drink it. My daughter coz a kids meal and no taties came with it was a bit disappointed bout that food was ok 2 much sauce with the ribs though
Food was miserable, cold, undercooked and the price is high compared to a lot of places.
Wemt back after a year before when we had a similar experience. Got a $50 voucher as compensation then. Only went back before the voucher expired, shouldn't have bothered. Wouldn't recommend
Food wasn’t great, was asked at the end how it was and we said not great and they ignored us and said that’s okay. Wouldn’t go back! Drinks were great though.
The Caesar salad was fresh and the sauces delish! My sister had vegetarian meal very pleasant. Others had delicious pasta and some had sirloin .Everything was fresh and had terrific tasty sauces. Reece was our Table Server and he was fantastic.
