The Gisborne Collective
we have made The Collective one of our favourite places to eat, it seldom disappoints.
It’s pub and pizza fare but really well done. The menu is relatively small but the food is always fresh, hot and really tasty. The staff are polite and friendly and, particularly on weekends, often very busy. Nevertheless service is good.
The drinks list features many local wines, all reasonably priced. Not beers drinkers ourselves, we do notice that their beer list is well appreciated.
We haven’t tried the pizza yet but their range is good and obviously popular. The open oven lends a point of interest and the staff are always clean, smiling and obviously enjoy their work.
The Collective in Gisborne is a pleasure to visit, we would and do recommend it to anyone.
Food very good- staff attentive- Did all the right Covid checks on arrival
Tasty simple menu. Perfect Sunday lunch. Will try the pizza next time.
A great menu with something to suit everyone. Service was excellent.
Had our first, post lockdown dinner here and everything was on point. We had the Korean chicken burger and Collective Pizza and it was delicious, great food and service with everything socially distanced. 😊
Love this place. Great staff. Super firefly atmosphere.
Amazing delicious food, excellent customer service. Very welcoming and friendly staff.
Worst visit ever. ................................
Can’t wait to go back, very nice food and overall enjoyable
Great venue, friendly staff with a big meal variety and good food.
Great venue goog food good service well priced. Thanks.
After being stuck at home for ISO the past 2ish + months, our family of 3 decided to eat out the first opportunity we got. The food was well priced and delicious but in all honesty there was far too much food for me to eat. We shared the junk fries and cauliflower for entree. Then the mains came. The pork and fennel lasagne for me was divine (wish I had the recipe) but I only ate about 3/4 of it as I was too full.
Female waitress was very blunt and not friendly. We were seated directly in the sun. We asked to move to free table out of Sun and was made to feel like it was a big deal.
Great food but being asked to leave our table soon as there was another booking soon was a bit rude and unexpected. Nowhere on our booking did it advise we were supposed to be out at a certain time and I had only just been served my desert 5 minutes earlier.
As always, the food was fantastic and the price is just right.
Great setting and lovely staff.
Wonderful local eatery. Great variety and well cooked meals. The Angus Rib Eye melted in your mouth and was cooked perfectly. The pizzas have some great toppings and hamburgers are delicious.
Great pizzas, but inattentive service, noisy venue, and the varnish on the tables is sticky and unpleasant to touch,
Never disappoints! Eaten here a few times & food is always consistently good. Pizzas & steaks are a must try.
Service erratic, offered water at the end of our meal after we had ordered coffee.
Cold coffee with no flavour, more like a glass of partly frothy milk.
Meal was perfect as always. Well priced, good sized meals that taste delicious. Highly recommend!
First ever visit and not disappointed. Great spot to take friends to enjoy a very healthy breakfast spread catering for special dietary needs. The ambiance was peaceful so we could catch up without noise competing with our voices. Loved the enormous pizza oven...we look forward to returning to experience this next time.
Food was fantastic service was fantastic. Love the duck spring rolls
The food was amazing, I had the fried chicken burger. The staff were also very helpful. Will definitely be back in the near future.
Never fails to disappoint. Great food, atmosphere & service. Love it!
I Love a good feed at this place and the staff are great too
When it takes 80mins for the entree to arrive then the main 10 mins later, ordered at 7.20pm meals started arriving at just before 9pm
Fantastic experience dining at The Gisborne Collective. The staff were fantastic, service was outstanding with staff going out of their way to make sure we had a great night out.
The staff are amazing and very polite. Fantastic food!
We had a family lunch (ten of us) - and all I can say is - the food was really REALLY good! Impressive presentation and delicious! We thought it might be a little expensive for what it was - however when it came out - the quality was exceptional. We will definitely be back for more!
Could not fault the service or food. we had the fried chicken it was delicious. would definitely be going back again.
Nice atmospheres a little loud but food was so yum. We had burgers and pizza. Pizza base little thick but still nice
I booked a table for six and requested a quiet area. There was no table fir six reserved and we were placed in a noisy area.
The lamb pizza was very dry. Suggest drizzling a garlic sauce on top.
The Collective is our local and we go there regularly. It was just a little disappointing
A little expensive but food very nice.... staff and service good... pub like atmosphere.
Granted it was Father’s Day and we did have to wait for almost 1 hour for food but when is arrived it was all cold.
Great food and drinks awesome service had a wonderful time
This was the first time that l had been at this restaurant and l absolutely recommend it. The meal was delicious , the service was friendly as soon as you walk through the door. Did not have to wait long for meals, very professional and the beer was ice cold. I rate this restaurant 5 stars. You will not be disappointed.
Where so many think they know (& actually don't) these guys get Hospitality, Fast Efficient, Great Vibe, Great Menu & Fantastic Service - Highly recommend.
Hopefully the mushroom and haloumi burger makes it the the regular menu - we will be back all the time for it.
Great food and a friendly team who make sure you enjoy your time there.
Was a good night but the Only thing I can say bad was the jambalaya was definitely not great or what I expected! it didn’t taste anything like a jambalaya and it was more a cross between a gumbo/ jambalaya!
