“Great food using NZ products”
Reviewed 16 October 2013 via mobile

Very good food in a pleasant atmosphere. Luckily we went early as we wouldn't have got a table even on a Tuesday night. The beef cheek was superb as was the service. We would certainly stop in Taupo and visit the Plateau again and again,

“As usual a fantastic meal with great service”
Reviewed 29 September 2013

We regularly send our homestay guests here for dinner so it is important that we are sure they will receive 5 star food and service. We had dinner here last night and were not disappointed.
The food & service were impecable and the best terrine I think I have ever had, with pear puree and beetroot and fabulous ciabata toast, I could go back for more again and again!!! We also had the Taupo beef daily special, amazing for less than $30.00.
We will definitely continue to send our guests here. Thank you guys. Gail Corfe, Kauri Point

“Outstanding”
Reviewed 5 September 2013

Read previous reviews so booked a table for 7 people last Monday. Thinking it would be quiet we were surprised to find the restaurant busy. The service was outstanding as was the dinner. The entrees were excellent as were the mains. Prices were reasonable and would definitely go back again. We often eat out in the Wairarapa and Wellington and this compared well with the very best.

“Always great food and good service”
Reviewed 2 September 2013

The food and service here is consistently good whether it is for lunch in the more casual bar side of the restaurant or in the formal restaurant. Highly recommended. Just wish they had more tables as it is often booked out when we walk in off the street.
