We have eaten with you regularly over the past few months and you have never failed to exceed our expectations. The chefs specials are always a delight to try and differ each time we have been. The staff are always attentive and well trained. The view is superb also and all the tables are sited to take advantage of the lake and sunset. Can't wait to return.

We came here for a dinner for two and it impressed our socks off! The service was impeccable, all staff were dressed perfectly, had fantastic manners and were just amazing. We each had an entree and a main and they were amazing. Thank you for a relaxing night off from cooking and doing the dishes!!

We have dined at the Edgewater a good number of times when in Taupo and they never fail to exceed expectations. Staff are friendly, attentive and very professional. Decor is nice with a great view of the lake.

On our most recent visit the food was again excellent. The pork belly entree was cooked well with great contrasting flavours and the venison, while being expensive was perfectly cooked.

We will continue to dine here when at Taupo.

Well, when in New Zealand, have Lamb Shanks. They were amazing. It was a lovely place to eat, very busy, so you need to book. Ask for a table overlooking the Lake. Lovely lounge to wait in if your table isn't quite ready. Very friendly staff.

We were staying at the hotel & booked a front table for dinner. They suggested we left it a little later until the sun started to go down as it was very hot in the window. Good advice - we had our drinks outside by the lake and then moved to the table for the sunset. Beautiful. Service was first class from a friendly young (Serbian?) waitress. Oysters were good and the Chowder as a starter was to die for. In fact it would have done me for a main course. Steaks for main course were good and cooked perfectly. At the top end price-wise but we thought very good value. Everything was right - the food, service, ambience and of course the view. Definitely recommended for a special occasion.
