About Osteria Matamata
The Osteria Restaurant group is a family run group. We have several locations including; Osteria restaurants in Matamata, Mount Maunganui, Ohakune & Taupo.
Great tasting food. Extremely busy evening but still the service time was acceptable. Highly recommended and we will be back most definitely.
Service: The first waitress offered us sparkling and still water; we chose sparkling water, but the waitress did not advise us that there was a charge for this, so it was a surprise to be charged for this when we have not been charged for it at other restaurants or they advise the cost up front. The first waitress did not know the price for the fish of the day and went away to find out but did not come back before another waitress served us. The second waitress gave excellent service and it was a pleasure to be served by her. Starters: The Ravioli was excellent, the de Mari great even though the prawns and mussels were slightly over done, but the flavours were there. Both starters were generous portions and full of flavour. Mains: Both mains were again very generous portions. The rib eye was great and tasty. The pork belly was mainly fat, which overpowered any flavour from the small amount of pork, but the rest of the meal was flavoursome and good. Drinks: The lemon, lime and butters I ordered can in a small glass; I’ve been accustomed to receiving it in a large glass for lower prices. The sparkling water was very nice. Other: Some of the other food I saw come out from the kitchen looked amazing, like the lamb shanks and white chocolate and strawberry cheesecake. A good atmosphere and overall a very good meal. Judging from the ravioli, the pasta dishes are fantastic!
Always great food and service . Thankyou so much Osteria
Waitress only took half the tables starter order so half our party had finished before the other half of the party got theirs. (party of 4). I had the same meal as I had 2 weeks ago except this time the steak was probably the worst quality I have ever had and the potatoes were about a third as many as last time. This was a special occasion and I feel I wont be back.
Food and service excellent as always.
Great place to eat. Awesome staff, lovely food and always a good experience. Love this place!
Had a confirmed email for our booking for 6 tonight turned up doors closed
Very disappointed with my fish dish as dry and ended up leaving half of this but overall the other meals were okay, although we did have a very long wait to get these, around 1 1/2 hours but it is a busy time of year so I guess this could be why. Not overly impressed.
A larger selection of low alcohol beer would be appreciated. Haagen citrus is revolting heineken light is very nice and only 2.5%.I would have had another beer if it was available
Great Food, atmosphere and service. We were a big group of 19 and the service was good, they keep the drinks going and the starters were very good.(I got platter's for the entire group, this was great and made it a lot easier for the chefs) the mains did however take a while and we had been there for over two hours before they were served. Being Xmas and there were a lot of people in the restaurant I did understand the longish wait. The mains were excellent however and worth the wait.
Always amazing :)
Great awareness of gluten free requirements for a coeliac Restaurant was very busy so mains were a bit slow but appreciated the offer of free drinks for all Food was lovely and we had a great night
We took the elderly parents there for lunch. Nothing was a problem for the staff. They found a safe parking place to put the mobility walker while we ate. The staff were very attentive and "checked" in on us frequently during our meal to ask if everything was ok. Highly recommend this eatery.
The food is always lovely but the only negative thing I have to say about my meal was the steak which was a bit chewy
