The drive from Rotorua past the blue and green lakes, is spectacular, and then the road ends at the landing. Clear waters sparkle over pebbles, with Mt Tarawera visible over the lake. Loved the timelessness and the clear air and the birds at the Landing. Sitting on the deck, with coffee and cake. Blissful.

Slow service, food was not that great. I really don't see what people see in this place. Got a flat white and I swear it wasn't actually brewed coffee...

We stopped here to warm up on a cool lunchtime.
The chowder was lovely and the service was good,
It was super to have a log fire too.

We stayed at The Cheeky Tui at Lake Tarawera and The Landing was recommended by the owners. There was a menu in our cabin which looked good, so we made a reservation because there were six of us including two small children. The staff were very helpful and flexible about staying open beyond the usual closing time. There were three parties when we were there all served by the same young waitress with great attention to detail and a big smile. The views across Lake Tarawera were wonderful. The food was good quality and excellent portions. Very enjoyable.

Ordered Shrimp Caesars Salad. Nothing like a Ceasars salad, just the cheap salad mix resturants buy in and for the price difference between a shrimp one and a non shrimp one I think I got about 5 shrimps which probably equated to $1 per shrimp. Average salad, not done the traditional Ceasar way with cos lettuce. The Pork dumpling meal my partner had was tiny for the price. Not value for money, the location great but wouldn't return for the food.
