Just so beautiful to wake up each morning to the view of the lake - enjoyed privacy, birdsong, warmth and outstanding facilities.

I stopped in here with family over the Christmas break as we were looking for somewhere nice to go. We weren't disappointed, the food was nice, the staff were attentive and the view was brilliant. They even managed to get additional entrees out when we put some late orders in. Not the cheapest place to eat, but it was good... More

We went with friends to this restaurant, very unassuming, and lovely atmosphere. The staff where helpful, and food arrived within a time period that was acceptable. The food was nice and presented well, this place is a hidden little gem.

We dined here last night and have rebooked with friends on Friday. The service was good and the meals we had were absolutely delicious (I had the vegetarian special and my husband had the duck). Great job, thanks.

This restaurant is all presentation (beautiful) and not much more. Prices are at the upper end for the area. The food we had was good and we had no complaints, but the portions were light.

Located in idyllic native bush, with a panoramic view of Lake Taupo, this is a fabulous spot. But there is more. The food and service are also absolutely top rating. Do not miss this restaurant if you are in the area.

This restaurant is situated in a beautiful location with a pleasant atmosphere. The menu is interesting and inviting. Unfortunately on the evening we had reserved a table we were generally disappointed. This was because we waited a long time for the order to be taken and our starter to arrive and continuity of service throughout our meal was poor. The... More
