We had a lovely dinner. The service was excellent. The only thing I would ask them to better would be the kids meals. 2 of the 4 we received were dry (chicken tenders) our kids turned there noses at them, one spat the food out. Otherwise, the adult meals were wonderful. All 6 of them recieve full marks.

Very enjoyable meal. We both had the schnitzel changed to mashed potato instead of chips. No problem and no extra cost. We were asked if we would like dessert at which time I said I would like to see the menu but the waitress didn’t come back so ended up leaving without but would definitely go back

Staff were extremely helpful & accommodating. The kids meals were perfect size & they loved the Cobb crunchies (& so did us adults!). Next time we're in Rotorua, we'll be back

Haven't been to C&C for many years. As in Rotorua with kids thought we'd try again and it was great.
Set up great for kids with "kids corner" for when they get bored sitting at the table - food was great and good selections for children as well as for the adults.
We'll be back next time we are in Rotorua for sure

First time dining here. I was very happy with the service. We were warmly greeted and shown to our table. Our order was taken less than 5 mins after sitting down (we had looked at the menu at home and knew what we wanted). Our starters came within 10mins. Our mains within another 10mins. At our request we had our dessert 15-20mins later. The waitress asked how we were and if we needed water at least 4 times. We felt very well looked after. The food was cooked beautifully we had the roast lamb the coconut chicken and a kids meal. Portions were fine for us! Only negative was the salad with the lamb.. I love salad and this one needed more ingredients as was only lettuce and grated carrot and dressing. Other than that was a fantastic experience. The biology to book online was great. And the kids area was really good. Gave us some quiet time at the table.

Great place to dine with the family - friendly fast service - kids and adults both enjoyed the meal and dessert - my kids want to go back to Rotorua just to have dinner at Cobb n Co again - and after that Coconut Chicken I may just take them!

The treatment at reception left much room for improvement on providing a suitable table that had been reserved. Six adults put in the children section.When we asked to be moved I was told I had booked 4 aduts and two children!! Dont know where she got this-certainly not from me.

The steak that both my partner and I ordered was delicious also the service was really good. Better if they have a brunch in Auckland. Overall 100% perfect

Always very good, and the food is very good, but my fish & chips the fish was very small (I have had fish from one side of the plate to the other) (but that was in the UK) there were a few bad bits on a few chips. There was a lot of fat on the pork.

Cobb & Co sadly have increased their prices and we have now found it to be unaffordable for a family. $8.50 for a milkshake is excessive but ours is the local $. Meals were good and service fast and friendly so it's a pity. Guess they must be doing OK to raise prices thanks to tourists. Still love the nostalgia of Cobb & Co.

The Seniors meal was not good as the roast of the day was Pork and it was more fat and crackling than meat.The fish meal was good and the Dessert's were good .Overall they need to look at the amount of meat that is served up

We did not get 'crunchies', cocktails were served with no peacock/decoration or plastic animal on glass (which the kids really look forward to); the first waitress I politely mentioned it to scowled at me as though I was making her job difficult, then did not do anything about it. The second responded appropriately, then returned about 15 minutes later with 3 plastic animals and slapped them down in a heap on the table (the girls had already finished their drinks). We had no service during our meal (no water etc. offered or anyone to check our meals were okay or anything). The food was cold and stodgy. Very, very disappointing. Adult burger was served with 2 slices of processed cheese - $22 burger! Gimme a break! Not value, not satisfying and the family all felt entirely disappointed.... family restaurant - Yeah right!

Awesome staff and service. The menu had lots of great choices. If I was being critical (and it’s no biggie) my chips were just warm, with no salt/seasoning and I had a massive piece of cauliflower and broccoli wth no seasoning. Also I was wanting a coffee and wasn’t impressed that it was from a Nespresso menu and cost $4.00. But I would definitely return again and recommend the Cobb and Co to others.

Really enjoyed taking my family to a place I visited as a child. Good simple food. But the music got to load by the end. Could not have a proper conversation with it being so loud. I also understand that the waitress has their stations but they still show not ignored the other customers out of their station.

We had an excellent meal & the service was outstanding. The only complaint we have is that we went on a very wet evening and the rain was pouring over the spouting which needs to be fixed.

Family-friendly. Thankful for the kids play area but the food was not of good value and quality. Kids fried food tasted awful - batter had no taste and fried in an oil that not even myself or my kids could enjoy. Pork belly and loin chops were both dry and had tasted and looked like it had been prepared and cooked the day before and just reheated.
Upside was my kids enjoyed their traffic light drinks.

Food was nowhere worthy of restaurant food. Even home meals would be better than the slop given. Perhaps a $15 per main meal charge is more in line with the quality of foid
