Restaurant was a little quiet but so were all the others we saw, nevertheless the food was really good. Started with the chicken wings which were very tasty and then a great steak, the Boston cut fillet which was like two steaks together. Cooked very rare, just how I wanted it. The fries were also nicely cooked. The sticky date pudding was delicious and JJ was kind enough to buy us a drink to go with it! Our waiter was also very patient and attentive and friendly. Would recommend happily.

If you want a great steak meal then this is it. From 200gms to an impressive 600gms! with choice of sauces and vegetables. Have been there many times and always impressed. The lamb shoulder is massive and a major undertaking, They don't provide coffee though. Can always count on a good night out JJ's.

JJ's legend had reached me in the UK before we had set off to New Zealand and as a result I wanted to meet the man and dine here. we were not disappointed in either!!!!!

Following the recommendation from Jaqui at the Beechtree Suites we arrived early evening. The food that we had was well cooked and presented, the staff were polite and friendly so much so that we went the following night to make sure that it was not a one off. We were not disappointed. Everything was as it was on the first visit.

When in Taupo look this up you will not be disappointed.

This one place you want to have a steak - they are fabulous. Incredible quality meat, cooked to perfection and served with a real smile and absolute confidence by the staff.
JJ is I understand a bit local legend and spends time at the front of the restaurant enjoying a beer with customers. His humour, generosity with a beer is as big as he is and having stayed in 2 hotels in Taupo, both of them said " you will not go wrong dining at JJ's.
I have now eaten there 3 times and it is consistently very good. I really hope JJ keeps up the good work.
