After walking around the area from our hotel we were getting here hungry and had passed by this restaurant a little while ago so we backtracked and decided to give it a try. We were seated right away... they were not too busy but still some places make you wait anyways... but here we were at a table in the... More

The food here is awesome and the staff are the best!!! They are attentive, considerate and not 'in your face'. Food prices are slightly above average, but more than made up for by the quality and the brilliant staff. Mykala is a great waitress!!!

There was only one other table occupied when we arrived for lunch. It took them several minutes to seat us. When they did, it took a while to take our order. We must have waited 20 minutes more for the food. I ordered a burger and regular fries and they were tasteless for NZD 20.90. My friend said her Mexican... More

Tonight I experienced the worst meal of my life! Having travelled over 20,000 kilometres from Scotland we embarked upon which Gordon Ramsay would describe as 'hells kitchen'! The chowder was cold, the burger was bland and as a group of 20 visiting farmers we expected a steak cooked correctly but this was not the case! On top of my disappointment... More

Hi Colin F We're glad you choose to dine with us on your evening in Rotorua. 20 visiting farmers from Scotland will find everything they need through the red batwing doors of Cobb & Co. It's very dissapointing you found you afternoon to be anything less than exceptional. There is no excuse for food that isn't served to the perfect... More

Ordered the Cobb Carnivore with curly fries and salad (comes with 400g rump steak and pork ribs) and it was incredible! The food was cooked perfectly and packed with flavour. Was not sure whether price would match up to quantity but it definitely did! Massive plate coated in food. Would definitely come back!

Friendly staff and nice food. It was a bit expensive for what it was. Only complaint was when the food came out the waiter handed my daughter her food and the plate was so hot she burnt her fingers. She was not warned the plate was hot and when she yelled the waiter just looked at her and walked away...... More

Thanks for the feedback, inonufing. We're glad you enjoyed your meals! It's is concerning to hear of the interaction you had with the waiter. Any person would be highly concerned by a young girl's sudden discomfort. We warm our plates for you to ensure the food stays hot and delicious. This, of course, is no excuse for not warning you...

Came here as we had 3 under 5's with us. The kids had a blast and barely came to the table to eat. Pretty disappointed with the kids drink range - nothing like what they used to be when I was a kid. Waitress was very nice and friendly but kept addressing everyone as "lovelies" which everyone found a little... More

Hi Anita W It's great to hear you had such a great evening! It's dissapointing you did not find enough range in options for your children to drink. We offer children sizes for all juices, soft drinks and even have our famous kids cocktails! I apologise for the waiter making you feel awkward. We love to hear when a customer... More
