Superb food, excellent service, fabulous views. I'm so glad I remembered about this place - last visited about 25 years ago! We had a great evening.

Food was amazing, service attentive and discreet. Wine list good. Crisp white cloths, sparkling silverware and glasses welcomed you to the table.
Views are beautiful. The place still needs some refurbishment in the entrance way especially, but heading in the right direction

The location is amazing food good but there are a few things that need attention to bring it up to the expected standard.
Signage missing a letter, entrance reception floor needs attention, some areas could do with a coat of paint, cob webs over statue, the menus are tatty and need replacing.
Staff attentive and food good.

Bit dubious after reading mixed reviews, but had also just read the restaurant had just got Beef & Lamb Award, plus the added bonus of knowing the views would be awesome.
Firstly, yes the place needs an overhaul ... interior is dated and it could do with refurbishment.
However the food and the service were both first class and couldn't be faulted.
My opinion, sit by the window ... look out over Rotorua and the lake, and enjoy your meal.
