A very memorable special occasion experience!

It’s been a while since we have been equally impressed across our main 3 areas of rating a restaurant. In order of the experiences- Customer service is 5 star, as a team they are in unison with each other, my husband commented saying he likes the fact that you can’t tell who owns the restaurant because each of the staff display a passionate sense of ownership for the restaurant. Very proud, friendly staff who are not obnoxious, and we really value that. A sense that a place is more than just employment, a togetherness on the floor that is true kiwiana manaakitanga and it is shared throughout. Family friendliness is a 5 star, we like to dine with our young family of 3 children often, and The Stables team are at the front of making the experience a pleasant one. The contemporary country setting is beautiful, horses going by and accessible playground equipment outside on far side of the park. Great for the children to run off steam with relaxing scenery as the backdrop. Yes, they have colouring ins, as entry to a competition to get a half price meal for the next visit. A thoughtful and effective way to have children waiting patiently for their meals is always a tick. That brings me to the 5 Star kai (food). Perfectly prompt, signs of a well organised kitchen and it definitely shows! Quality fresh local produce with presentation seen in a la carte dining. I thoroughly enjoyed my fresh line caught Leigh snapper. My husband enjoyed the crispy duck breast dish and my eldest had the chicken supreme, 10/10 all three cooked perfectly tender. We were so impressed by the dedicated chefs, and The Stables not missing a beat. Also, the garlic bread with olives is a must! Now for the childrens menu, simple quality indgredients which for our youngest fussy eaters was perfect, especially because our children have ASD tastebuds, so we usually find that even the herb sprinkles over pizza, chips or pasta is enough to turn our children away. I asked kindly that if they do usually serve with herbs, if they could leave them off and it was honored with no problem. Not once did we feel our requests were an inconvenience, which these days is hard to find. The Stables child friendliness was apparent and well received and anyone who dines with a young family will know how important this is. Drinks- gin lovers must try the Rhubard Tonic. We enjoyed all our drinks especially the TED Otago Pinot Noir. Deserts- don’t give it a miss! We value experience over pricing so like anyone else like to feel that we got what we paid for and we absolutely feel we did and very happy to tip this place. Just entirely worth it and highly recommend. Thank you for contributing to a wonderful Mother’s day, it was the first without my husband’s mother who recently passed away and we couldn’t have asked for a more memorable way to have commemorated the day. We will definitely be back to try your steak and rib Fridays!
