Stayed over night while travelling to Wellington, and had dinner. What a pleasant surprise, food was delicious. Had the lamb cutlets, and also the steak both were cooked to perfection. Generous helpings, the service was quick and very friendly.

My husband and I ate dinner here and was very pleased. The fish that I had was one of the best I have ever tasted. The facility is very clean with a nice ambiance. I would highly recommend.

Had a visit from my sister and we went for dinner there. It was very enjoyable, the meal was scrummy and the wine was a perfect match. The restaurant was very well setup.

The meal was very well presented and was of a good size. It was value for money with a good selection of choice The only thing of note was the waitress did not know what I was wanting when I ordered a liqueur coffee and wanted Drambuie in it

Probably the best meal my wife and I have had in the many years we have travelled to Taupo and Turangi . Dinner was superb . Lamb cutlets were tantalisingly meaty - really tender . My wife's orange roughy was fresh and fleshy . The meals were generous - the prices more than reasonable . Why we were the only... More

Grab a glass of wine or beer on your way in at the bar. Entrees served just in the right time and your mains are served once you finish with... More
