The food was fabulous. My steak was cooked exactly as I asked. The staff were helpful and friendly and the atmosphere was good. The food was a bit expensive but worth it.

Amazing. In my years I’ve had a ton on tacos, yours, hands down the best lol, In fact everything was the best. Will def. be back! It’s hard going out with an autistic disabled teen, your staff was above awesome. Treated her like a normal person (sounds silly... but very few even give her eye contact) your staff are just amazing. we don’t get out much.. obviously... so when we can it’s a big deal. Thank you, for giving us a night out to remember 🤗

I'd made a reservation. When we arrived, all the best tables were reserved. Our table was in the middle of the room. The door was open, so it was in a draught. We asked to sit at one of the reserved tables, as we were there at 5.45pm and expected to be in and out quite quickly. This wasn't met very positively by staff but they allowed us to sit at one of the reserved tables. There were 3 of us. We asked about the shared platter for 2 at $59.90. We were told that for an extra $30.00 they would make it a shared platter for 3. We went with this but were very disappointed. $90.00 and the offerings were sparse and mostly tasteless! We left some bits and pieces of food but because of the price, I asked for a "doggy bag". A polystyrene container was presented but we were left to scoop up the bits and pieces ourselves!! Overall VERY disappointing. The Fat Cow needs to up it's game, if it's to stay in business and compete with the many other restaurants of very good quality, in downtown Mount Maunganui.

Pecan pie was amazing, coming back for it. Yes, I'm a sweet tooth ;o) Main was really good as well. I'll be more adventurous next time with the steak chef's choice. Had a great night, thanks team!
