My partner and I came for dinner as recommended by our accommodation owner during our stay in Turangi. It took us by surprise how good the food was in a small remote town and we totally enjoyed our experience.
The turn off from the highway to the town was quite obscure with no street light - lucky we had GPS otherwise we could have easily missed the turn. The restaurant is right next to the lake and we could only imagine how nice it would be during the day.
We had a young teenage apprentice waiter who was polite, friendly and professional although you could see he was still learning to be on top of his game. The food came timely and our dishes were all very nice (garlic bread, seafood chowder, penne pasta, mushroom salad). Definitely exceeded our expectation.
The environment was relaxed and suited for families. People overall dressed rather casually. Almost too relaxed for the quality of the food.
Overall - excellent experience and we would definitely come back again.
