“Good food and great location”
Reviewed 2 July 2014

We were brought menus promptly and order taken in a reasonable time. Waited for our drinks to be served but they didn't arrive and no offer of water either. Received or meals after about 20 minutes but still no drinks. Another 10 minutes and had to ask for our drinks as they had forgotten to put in the drink order. Food was all freshly cooked to order and presented well. Very tasty and good serving size. Plenty of staff walked past our table so little more attention needed to at least offer water if there are no drinks on the table. All food served to other tables looked great and the desserts in the cabinet would be worth returning for, although we were too full to try any this time. Some minor renovations happening at the moment so noise of a nail gun at times but not enough to stop me from returning.

“Meh”
Reviewed 2 July 2014 via mobile

Competent but not spectacular. There was nothing particularly special about the food or its presentation that could not be done by an average home cook. Most of the menu items were pretty standard - I didn't count how many were some sort of meat served on garlic and onion potato mash, so no great creativity. That said, the food was cooked well.

“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.
