Greeted by Molly who has a great sense of humour. Given choice of table. Room hot but we soon acclimatised. Bread made in the house. A sourdough with infusions of tomato ( probably sundried ) and other divine tit bits served with butter. Perfect. Wine selection by glass limited but an attentive wine waiter. Waitress energetic and friendly. Entrée Pheasant... More

The restaurant is in a convenient, beautiful setting along the shores of the lake. The food was fine, not outstanding considering the price. It was a nice dinner setting, but the food was not as expected.

Seafood bouillaisse was equivalent to prawns in tomato soup for $ 40 Duck was overlooked and stringy lacking any taste . Also duck skin had been deep... More

We had dinner here. All the food was excellent, there was a good selection of beers, the service was excellent. The menu isn't extensive. The salad was good and of a size that two people could share. The entrees were prepared perfectly. We had oysters, fresh fish of the day. There was no room for dessert. The ambience is nice.... More

Our local friends invited us here. Absolute waterfront location. The interior decor begins to age a bit and needs some more modern update. Service was fine and the food as well. We only took a main course, some fish and chips and some the eye filet. Very good food quality and well prepared.

My wife loved her meal (lamb). I had the snapper (after a hard day on the Tongariro I wanted a fish dinner.) It was ...nice, but didn't have anything to bring it all together and therefore was just a bit disappointing. The entree (prawns three ways) was good. The dessert...escapes me. The chef is obviously talented but I left feeling... More

Very welcoming staff and kids got crayons and drawing paper at arrival. The kids menu could be better, but the main menu was nice and the food cooked to perfection.

We ate here for two nights in a row as Taupo was really busy and we couldn't get a booking elsewhere the second night. However, we were very happy to return! Both nights the food was beautifully presented and cooked well, and the specials had changed slightly from the previous night which gave further choices. The menu covered a good... More
