We were disappointed by this place, one of the poorest we have visited in a fortnight. The staff were a bit clueless. Food was adequate, not good, wish we had chosen another place.

Interesting menu with plenty of choice. The fish dish was excellent, as was the liquorice parfait for dessert. Prompt attentive service, without being rushed. Would definitely go again.

Do not, under any circumstances, go to anywhere else to eat, other than Pimentos when you are in Taupo. The service is great and the food is unbeatable. If you were to find anywhere better in the district then I would be amazed.

Whenever we stay in Taupo dinning at Pimentos is a must. The mushroom and blue vein cheese soup is my favourite; however, the salmon entree is hard to beat so always presents a challenging choice. A good variety of mains sufficient to suit a wide...More
