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.

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.

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

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.
