A nice restaurant with cosy atmosphere. Food was nice however had a few comments from our party of 17 that a couple of meals were underwhelming in both taste and portion size. The ordering process for drinks and meals was a tad chaotic however overall it was a good evening.
Nice food... Great atmosphere... Humorous wait staff...
We were totally impressed with the service from the staff. Meals were equally as good. We went two nights in a row since we couldn’t decide where to eat on our second night and thought we couldn’t go wrong with going back.
Loved it their will definitely be back with my family! My only little nitpick is, the cocktails, while the best I've had they needed just a bit more alcohol in them, I'm a light weight when drinking and I had 5 of those and felt nothing.
We had a lovely meal steak cook to perfection service was great. This was the first time at this restaurant and we will be back
Great place for a meal with the family.
Everything was great however one person in my dinner party did make the comment that you needed more staff on. However this is my favourite restaurant out of Auckland Rotorua Taupo and Tauranga so I keep returning. Tauranga CBK is no where near as good as Rotorua. I will be back
Awesome experience. Great Staff and great food.
Terrible service. Waiter handed over menus and pointed us to our table then didn’t attend for a good 10 minutes. Wine bottle was uncapped and dumped on the table without checking it was the right one or a tasting. The food was pretty awful. Garlic bread was stodgy with no flavour and my stone grill pork was cold in the middle. The poor lighting meant I couldn’t tell if it was cooked or not. When I made the booking I didn’t realise we would be seated outside which although had a heater we needed to wear our jackets and coats throughout the meal. Our plates also weren’t cleared away at all. Very poor service. Would not recommend nor ever visit again.
Awesome food and service, me and my partner loved the whole experience and we cant wait to dine in again
Lovely lunch thank you Sarah and your team
Reserved a table and we were seated at a tall table with bar stools...VERY uncomfortable...asked if it were possible to move and told no...yet empty tables around us the whole time we were there. Food was great but experience not so enjoyable when your back is burning.
Emily did a great job with service. Very good food. Nice Environment. Will certaily recommend!
Awesome all round! Thouroughly enjoyed our meal, thank you.
We were made to feel very welcome and the food was excellent. Thank you.
Again the music was too loud and over bearing difficult to have a conversation this is the reason we stopped going to the lonestar this is not the first time in last few months music is overwhelming however must say top meal again thank you fabulous waitress
The service was excellent
Excellent service, lovely friendly waitresses as well. Sarah is always absolutely amazing. A really fun vibe for a Sunday morning. We are regulars and will continue to be. Thanks Angelique
Lovely drinks and dessert Good service Disappointing main course Bacon described as crispy, was barely cooked, pesto stack had almost no pesto, way too much bread
the cut of steak was very poor and this is unusual but it woud stop us returning and we are locasl who have regularly visited CBK. We complained to our server but no action was taken
Staff were very polite and professional, disappointed some seafood was sold out however overall experience was great.
Love this place. Always reccomend to people an 1 of my go to places for a meal when im in rotorua.
The Chicken Fettucine is the best in town and I tell everyone. Sarah is always amazing, welcoming and makes you want to go back. I'm back tomorrow!!
Excellent service from the girls, very friendly and absolutely making sure I will come back.
