We went upon the recommendation of the owners of the B&B who we are staying with. Our outside table had stunning views across the lake.
Our starters were simply stunning. However the mains didn't quite match our expectations. I expected to get a fillet steak, but a rib-eye turned up. Tasty, but not as tender as a fillet. Friendly service, and a reasonable bill. Well worth considering.

We drove to Lake Tarawera to check out the gorgeous scenery outside of Rotorua, and we cam upon the Tarawera Landing. We returned the next day for a hike around Lake Tikitapu and a swim in Lake Tarawera and had some lunch afterward. We were welcomed and had a lovely table on the deck overlooking the lake. My husband had the deluxe breakfast, and I had seafood chowder--both were tasty. The service was attentive, and we enjoyed every minute of it!

We enjoyed the location but were let down by average service and average food quality. I am surprised that it had 4 star on trip advisor, but in reality its very average.

We had dinner here with friends and thought it was a magical spot. The building itself fits into the environment and the decor inside is very plain, but the views across the lake are just gorgeous. There was only one waitress and she was very good and attentive. Our food was excellent and we would certainly visit again and recommend.
