About The Culpeper

So this is exactly what you think of when you think of The Culpeper. It’s light and bright until night and then it’s bright and light until later.

It’s about relaxing; hanging with a bunch of friends or the good crew from the office. It’s ‘grab some lunch’ but with a hazy plan about what’s on this afternoon; it’s a cocktail or two after five and a totally easy dinner kind of thing.

We’re right on the water’s edge so you know it’s going to be ‘at ease’. Our owner thinks we’re here to celebrate food, fun and friends; we think we’re here for a good time (and a long time)…

Remember every good time is made up of moments. At The Culpeper, making the most of the moment is up to you.

Hi, it's the second time recently we've eaten at Culpepper (we've eaten there several times over the last 3 years) - the food is always amazing and this most recent time we sat outside on a beautiful evening which was lovely. We had the same waitress this time as last time - she is lovely and helpful but there have been numerous basic errors/communication issues between order taking and the kitchen including: drink orders not arriving, meal variations eg. ordering no jalapenos on a burger and the burger arriving with jalapeno sauce on it, two orders of ribs coming out on the same plate and given to one person. Not majors but each error/meal sent back/follow up just detracts from the dining experience. Overall, keep up the great food and just tweak the service to that next level :-)

When we arrived, only the front half of the restaurant was full. Our "reserved" table was located at the very back of the restaurant with 2 other 8pm reservations while all the other reserved 2 seaters were right in the middle of the restaurant where the sun were still shining. All reservations appeared to be 7pm onwards. If we had dined at our "reserved table" it would have been in complete darkness in a the empty half of the restaurant and alone from the boasted fun atmosphere. When asked if we could move or at least swap with one of the later reserved tables, our hostess just straight up said no and told us to go to the bar area instead and give up our table. We did so, grabbed a table out front and enjoyed drinks in the sun instead..ended up paying $164 for 2 off the bar menu. Shame we would have spent more had we dined in at the right table. Apparently we should have requested outdoor when booking, noted, however the blatant unwillingness to accommodate us was rather upsetting. The bar staff service was great, which is why I've given you a 2 star for service.

This was a celebration work lunch. It was very disappointing that firstly a few of the already limited lunch menu items was not available, and secondly the food took absolute ages to come out of the kitchen and some of our team had still not received their entrees whilst the rest had finished eating. The mains took in excess of 45 minutes from the time we had finished our entrees and also same as before some meals took longer than others The food was well cooked when received However this service was really not acceptable

It would be great if they had more options on the happy hour. So like more spirits gin, voka etc or alternative cocktails

Loved the food. Unfortunately very limited gluten free dessert options when it had such wide range of gluten free mains. Everything else was great.

The food was really good and came out quickly however after dinner we ordered another drink and waited 20 minutes and it hadnt come out so we asked about it. We were then told it hadn't been ordered and it was on its way. We then waited another 20 minutes and decided to just leave but had been charged for the two extra drinks. Have always had a good experience here so it's a shame that this has impacted this.

We dined for lunch outside today and it was such a delight overlooking the viaduct. The heaters warmed up the area. The Smoked Wakanui Brisket and BBQ Prawn Salad was delicious. Prawns were great value for $. Oysters with Tuna Poke were great value as well. Desserts also delightfful and worth ordering! Great service from a lovely French waitress - thank you!
