About The Co-Op Kitchen & Bar
Step into The Co-Op Kitchen and get swept up with the lively energy and smiling faces. The restaurant is a wave of the comfort of the gastropubs we grew up on. Between the live music, cocktail happy hours, and hearty homecooked-style meals, it’s a familiar taste of New Zealand culinary experiences. Dine on bruschetta and catch of the day, pork belly bites and poached pear salad, or cajun lamb pizza and New York cheesecake, complete with a chill glass of wine and a kids menu to keep the whole table happy.
was a great night, food was great, staff were fantastic, great atmosphere and excellent value for money. Nothing was a problem, everyone really enjoyed, thank you - big thanks to Tanya for all of her organisation.
Awesome spot for a steak. 🤙🏼
The spicy quinoa salad with haloumi was delicious. Thanks
Food and service was awesome as always and was nice to have a bit of live music while having dinner.
Good food and good service
I ordered prawn pasta NO prawns just a few shrimps which is misleading advertising Also now you can’t book by phone Bad move as many people at Whitby lakes use this method to book
Prawn pasta was really disappointing. Bland. The garlic was whole and hard, so no idea how that would have been cooked into the sauce.The prawns were tiny and tasteless.
Tonight we (5) really enjoyed a lovely meal served by a friendly efficient waiter. This has not always been the case in the distant past. Well done Co Op. full marks to you
Really enjoyed our evening.Great service and food. Look forward to returning.
I booked a table and indicated it was to celebrate my birthday and yet the table we were allocated was right by the kitchen at the back of the restaurant in a corner. Nothing was mentioned about it being my birthday by the staff either. Aside from this, 4 out of 6 of us did not enjoy our meals of pizzas and fish and chips. The pizzas were very dry and the fish soggy and over oily. I also ordered a GF base but when the pizza arrived it wasn’t GF. The flourless brownies were quite nice thankfully!
We came in tonight and the service from our south African waiter was top notch. Nothing was a problem. Love the Tuesday family nights. Makes dining with our kids special for them and less chaotic for us. Thank you
Everything was great! Only thing was the food took a long time - was very busy though. Would definitely still come back!
It was a pretty quiet night when we went in but we waited long times for our drinks to arrive (25 mins), and our food took 45 minutes. The ribs were served without the right knife or paper towels, the watermelon salad had too much watermelon and not enough salad greens, and the burger was very plain. The kids meals were great. Given our experience we were not happy with the price we paid.
First time visiting. Amazing food and great location. Will definitely be back!
Loved the wxperience.will definately come back again.Kia ora
Great meals, friendly helpful staff. Would definitely go back.
I'm thoroughly impressed with the welcoming, friendly atmosphere! Service is always super efficient. Really good food too. Always reccomend to friends and family. I have never had a negative experience. Definitely be back!
I love the gluten free choices, and the willingness of the chefs to modify the meals as requested.
Great dinner and great service. As a Whitby local it is great to bring visitors along to the Co-op.
Really Great Food and atmosphere but really uncomfortable seating on the high benches we were a group of 9 with 3 Kids they loved the food and activities offered Thanks for making our 40th Wedding anniversary fun.
