“Breakfast overlooking the lake.”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

Good coffee and well-presented breakfast served by efficient and friendly staff. A nice extra touch was the provision of warm blanket wraps for customers wishing to be seated outside. We have patronized Dixie's for over a year now on our frequent trips to Taupo and have enjoyed the consistently high standards on each occasion.

“Early breakfast......Number 1”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

Our large group needed an early start. We were booked in for that.... a group of ten had the meal within 10 minutes, all well cooked and great service with the most important coffee taking the top prize. If you want a good meal at a reasonable price. I would recommend it.

“Dinner with a view”
Reviewed 29 June 2014

Maxime the waiter was very attentive and the service quick. However the main meal, pork chops with mustard sauce also had another sauce over it so the two sauces were competing with each other and there was too much. My husband ordered the steak medium/rare which initially was good but as it came out on a very hot cast iron plate that was still sizzling, the steak continued to cook and ended up being well done by the time he'd finished it. Such a waste of a beautiful piece of meat, however the seafood chowder was first rate.

Fantastic food and service. Would revisit if the chance arose. The lamb shank was great as well as the delicious chocolate milk shake.
