We would recommend The Woodbox to all – but book well ahead!
We went a second time, and the menu had changed and I really enjoyed the food. My shrimp dumpling entree was delicios, I got the pork as my main course, very yummy and I couldnt finish it all there was quite a lot! My dessert was a bit average though, I ordered the trifle and it was a little bland for my liking.
Would definitely go back! Lovely atmosphere and nice attentive waiters
However, pleased to report that our meals were excellent this time, skillfully matched with wine choices which we enjoyed very much. The service was also excellent – a further improvement on our last 2 visits.
This is such a fabulous setting, and I can report we will now be returning with no hesitation at all.
Thank you team for a memorable evening.
Everything was really good. You come into a homely athmosphere with a nice fire. The service, a fellow from Brasil, was really good and friendly.
The steak tartare for entree was really good with a crumbed poached egg. I absolutely love steak tartare and prepare it often myself, but this was exquisite. Good flavours and textures, well presented.
The main was the fish of the day (hapuka). Again, good flavours although the hapuka fillet was quite smal for the price. If you’d only have the main, you might consider another dish to feel satisfied: fair enough, there’s enough good food on the menu
Dessert was a filo pastry and custard: very nice but not the most overwhelming dessert, although the chocolate fondant of my dining partner was fabulous.
After a three course meal, you are definitely satisfied. I am quite a big eater myself, and I couldn’t fit in much beloved cheeses
Definitely top in the waikato!
Pre-book would be best..we had an early dinner & it filled fast!
Online booking a bonus!
Lighting in the carpark not so great & a few pot holes but lots of parking!
Very warm & cosy with the fireplace! Beautiful intimate setting!
VERY attentive service!
Used the entertainment guide gold card so got a bargin but otherwise NOT cheap!
Main meal of chicken & eye fillet cooked to perfection!
Worth a trip for something different!
Have been there several times for both, lunch and dinner during winter the place is nice and warm but summer the flies are a killer.. The staff are friendly and the food is good, as it should be for the price.
Wine was nice and nice Staff pity the Chef let them down
So we went to The Woodbox on a very busy Wednesday night with a large group of us (including young children) and we all had a great night.
The staff were very helpful and friendly, the food very tasty and fresh, and service very efficient.
It is definitely worth trying.
Many thanks for a great night, we will definitely be back!
