Cobb & Co. Rotorua
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.
It was great for our purpose. Kid friendly. Fresh, fast meals.
Food was absolutely awesome, service & staff brilliant.
It was busy during our visit so were glad we had booked online. We were taken straight to our table and well looked after. The staff were friendly and knowledgeable. Our meals arrived in good time and we were all very happy with our choices.
Great for kids, service impeccable. We will be beack
Cobb and Co was our Plan B as our first choice was booked up. But it was just brilliant, the kids played in the play area, the kids meals are first class my 2 year old and 4 year old were very impressed. The staff were effective, attentive and humorous. The food arrived so quickly, and was perfection. We were expecting a dated experience from our memories of the original restaurant, but were really proved wrong. We will be back.
We ordered a entre and were charged for two and we ordered 2 Pinot Gris and were charged for 3! We ordered 2 roast meals and they were pork the meat was only ok and one of us was really disappointed with only getting one roast potato per plate of a roast meal
Hi Grant! Sorry to read about your experience at Cobb Rotorua. Would you be comfortable finding the time to call the store to look at the overcharge with us? we would be more than happy to sort this out for you. I am guttered our pork roast didn't do its usual thing and blow you away with how tender that meat is! I will pass this feedback on to our Executive Chef as he is currently conducting a menu review. How was the rest of the roast vege?
Awesome for families. Food was delicious although bit pricey. Was worth it for just reminiscing from childhood, seemed like it hadn't changed.
Great family restaurant. A very fun place for the kids
It was a busy night. They were understaffed. My 89 year old mother was disappointed because her glass of house wine took over 40 minutes to get delivered. The waitress leaned over in front of us when serving and held dinner plates mid air waiting for patrons to place them down.
Hi Mark! Thanks so much for speaking up and submitting feedback for us. We are so guttered we let you down. The team in Rotorua looks after thousands of people a week consistently ensuring each guest is given a reason to come back to us again. They are however professional enough to acknowledge when a mistake has been made and are always eager to reduce the risk of these types of things happening to other guests. Again, thanks for your feedback, Mark.
We were greeted nicely.Our waitress was excellent.Fast please thank service.My meal was cooked to perfection.We would visit again.
Food was very average, not overly good value for money. Drinks extremely expensive.
Service very overwhelming, plates taken away before everyone had finished. Felt very rushed.
An easy, family friendly place to dine. Great parking right outside. Extensive menu with variety. Kids menu and seniors menu. Very good wait staff and service. Great food.
Great service, nice booths, great iPad set up. Food A bit overpriced fir the simplicity of it - but good steak - compliments yo the chef on the scotch fillet! Thank you
Atmosphere, food and staff friendliness was excellent. Our waitress however didn’t really listen and we had to remind her of what we ordered as we received wrong items and some items forgotten. The manager however fixed this immediately and apologised as she was new which is understandable.
Beautiful fish n chips meal, steak meal and burger, however the mac n cheese for my girl was yuck tasted like plastic and my girl never wastes mac an cheese so won't be ordering that again but ill definitely be back sometime soon. Our service was primo, the atmosphere was great.
We dined on a busy Saturday night with our 4 children, and were so impressed!! The restaurant was packed, yet the food came out quickly and was delicious! I wish I had caught the name of our lovely waitress who was very attentive.
Best family restaurant in Rotorua we reckon, we’ll be back! Amy and Aaron
The food was perfect and there was next to no wait time for our food. The service was amazing as we're the drinks amazing. We will definitley be returning to Cobb and Co. Loved it.
iPads for the kids - terrible!! Food fine. Wine nice and cold.
Great service, great food, great atmosphere. One of our family favourites.
Another great night food great just the right amount. The waiter very pleasant and helpful. Manager for the night was friendly and sorted phone problem that I had informed him about. Would recommend to others.
Restaurant was nice waitress was lovely experience was Poor.
I surprised my mum with a birthday dinner at Cobb and co-Rotorua and I was embarrassed.
mine and my daughters chicken was not great It was cooked the coating on top the chicken was too much And was soggy and I didn’t like the apricots source taste by choice I couldn’t eat it.My daughter ate what she could of her chicken to be polite I didn’t make a fuss as it was my mum’s birthday and It was no one’s fault just the chicken could’ve been cooked a lot longer to make it not so jelly like. The size of the chicken breasts are pretty massive they would be hard to cook to the point of that soft and easy to cut could suggest maybe slicing the chicken breasts on the plate instead of just the whole thing on there,?,, I work in the industry I understand when things don’t go to plan.
the waitress was a lovely girl she Copped very well Was very polite and patient with us Lovely place otherwise atmosphere was nice just The food wasn’t that great that night
Hi Gina. Thanks for your constructive, well thought out review. That Chicken Alexander is a favourite for many of our guests and it's heartbreaking that your dish wasn't prepared to our high-quality specifications the kitchen team in Rotorua as so good at meeting. We will ensure we pass this feedback on to the kitchen team so they can reduce the risk of this happening again. Thanks for speaking up Gina!
My sirloin and prawns was amazing!! And so were my traffic lights!! Love it highly recommend!
The little pencils on the table were dirty.
Desert took forever to arrive we had to get it to take away and it was ordered at the same time our mains were ordered.
Absolutely amazing service n food def brings bk memories frm whn i was a child
We were seated by children’s area. Main took 1 hr to be served and hubbys steak was perfectly cooked but cold. Had been looking forward to Cobb n co dining, haven’t been in years so quite disappointed
Service was good food cold even when replaced was cold. Felt rushed as dessert was on table before main was finished
Loved the atmosphere . The coustomer service was outstanding . They were friendly and to top it off the smile and detail to service made our night
There was no seasoning on the food, and none on the tables. Roast veges not roasted well, very soft and not crispy . Crackling was not crackling. Dont feel a professional chef was in residents. Any chef should have these basic cooking skills well tuned. Simple food like frying chips came to the table lightly coloured, you have purchased a poor quality chip and it was not golden on the outside and fluffy on the inside. The waitress gave us a aioli in a cardboard cup, and then a satchet for the tomato sauce. The staff were milling around but not clearing away as soon as quests left (training issue). They instead congregated around the reception area(never a good look). We were sent into the bar initially no one came to serve us, so we went to the bar, and waited for the staff to stop doing other things. I also had to go back to reception about waiting for our table, there were hardly anyone left, yet we were left to wait for no reason, as our area we were sat was completely empty. Your staff are not well trained. They were though very polite and smiled.
Great place to have a nice family meal. Well priced and super friendly staff. Definitely going back.
Food was so yum and timely. Staff were super friendly. Really impressed with overall experience.
Great service. Super fast in getting meals out. Highly recommend
Loved being able to book online, even before the restaurant opened. Busy holiday weekend but good food, really good service and would definitely go back. Recommended, especially for people eating with children.
Vodka had short cut straw, couldn’t reach , my shrimp cocktail , lettuce stalks, watery dressing, husbands cocktail they forgot , friends milkshake choc ordered vanilla , got given no cutlery , 3 diff people served us, change was wrong had to get her to re count. Lovely staff but useless.
This is the first time in my life of 76 years I’ve taken the time by email or letter to compliment the fantastic friendly and cheerful manner of specifically two of your staff, (along and others) for their great service to a couple of retirees in your Rotorua restaurant last night (Saturday).
My wife and I had had a full day travelling from Wanganui to Hamilton to Tauranga and then to Rotorua where we were stopping for the night. We just wanted an appetizing meal without any fuss or bother which we had apart from the fuss which both Noi and Nav provided. They were a delight to deal with.
If in the near future we’re in Rotorua, we would certainly return to enjoy their hospitality.

Had a great meal out at Cobb and Co.
Had a party of 4 with 2 seniors and when it came time to pay, their whole meal was free, which was a great surprise,
Was quite noisy as there were a few kids dining but it soon emptied out as our booking was for 7.30 on a Saturday.
Food was so yummy too
Great family restaurant and service was excellent! We will def be back.
Great night out with the family . Perfect for families and large groups
Great family dining experience. Food and service were usual high standard.
Average, not worth the money. Over priced for what it is
Would be nice to be served with knives and forks as well as salt and pepper so we didnt hav to gk looking for it. Otherwise lovely meal and staff were great no matter who we spoke to
