The menu choice is quite good, the oysters are amazing. Ask for a window seat if you can, to get the best of the lake and mountain views.

The title really says it all. The restaurant is in the Millennium Hotel but is worth visiting without staying there. It has a lovely location overlooking Lake Taupo and is well appointed on two levels (just a few steps) which give all tables lake views. Food was fine, it was well cooked, reasonable portions and fairly tasty. A decent evening.

The view from our table was fantastic, beautiful window seat. Lovely restaurant inside. Unfortunately every time I wanted a glass of wine I had to wait, approach staff and ask, every glass! The customer service with the young ladies in particular was not great, the older staff members were professional and pleasant. Menu was a nice selection, great options, I... More

Food is ok. However it was extremely disappointing that in a resturant of this level I should have a piece of chewing gum stuck to my pants from sitting in their chair at the dinner table. The manager did not believe me initially ( as if I was going to stick gum on the chair and then on my pants... More

Dear Guest - I am very sorry to learn of your experience and apologise for the inconvenience caused to you. I am also shocked and disgusted to learn that someone can leave gum on a chair. It is most upsetting to see a negative for management as this is far from what our good reputation is built on - as... More

Our host was Kiriana, she obviously loves her job, she was bubbly and attentive to us. I so wish more restaurants could harness this sort of first rate service. Great Job..

The experience in this restaurant is the highlight of my 2 day stay in Taupo so I decided to write my first review on Tripadvior. I went for a birthday dinner with my boyfriend and our Chinese waitress, Montina, is really lovely and friendly. The ambiance of the restaurant is pleasing and gave us a great atmosphere to enjoy our... More

Hadn't been here before and decided given its locality to take my wife here for a special evening. Well, wasn't disappointed and in fact we were impressed with every aspect. The service was attentive and welcoming, the view over lake Taupo great and the meal was first class. We started to oysters (I'd recommend Kilpatrick), followed by the lamb rack... More

We stayed at the hotel that this restaurant is in, and although we usually like to go out and about exploring, the food looked too good to miss so we booked a table for one night of our stay. The restaurant is lovely, right by the lake with scenic views across the water, even after dark it is nice to... More

Nice restaurant, clean amenities, good service and view right on the edge of Lake Taupo. It was very quiet with only 4 diners when we went. We found the modern music playing in the restaurant a little annoying. We had fish and chips, which was very nice, but left us feeling a little bloated. But there were many options on... More
