We have been for private lunch for my birthday. Very attentive service, something that you not always get in such "well established" places. Food was excellent and plenty: great fish platter and best lamb we had in NZL so far. Very impressive wine list, however selection for wines by the glass (...I.e. Lunch) was quite limited (one per grape type).... More

My family of eight loved our dinner in the Trophy room at Huka Lodge. My daughter thought it the best dining experience she has had.. Simply the best New Zealand has to offer we all agreed. It is the most wonderful green gardened lodge - absolutely beautiful.

If you are looking simply for a place to get a quick meal, give this a miss. Only go if you want a WHOLE experience: excellence in service, cuisine, location, ambience, and everything ABSOLUTE LUXURY. We visit Taupo at least once a year and have always said "we must go to Huka Lodge one day". Well that day came when... More

Exclusive lodge surroundings without the exclusive feel. We were greeted with a smile, handshake and introduction from our lovely waitress Abby from the minute we stepped in the door. We were seated in the lodges lounge area in a lovely sunny nook overlooking the amazing gardens and river. The lunch menu offers three choices for each course and each choice... More

If you like gourmet, this is your place.....foams, small bites etc. All wonderful. And the place could not be more beautiful, romantic, private, choose your adjective. Service is discrete and prompt. Ideal in any category.

We had a nice afternoon here with friends. Service was prompt and attentive without being obtrusive. The seafood antipasto platter was excellent. The pinot gris was perfectly chilled. My only complaint is that the waitress didn't have extensive knowledge about the wines on the menu, and some bottles were out of stock.

This has to be one of the prettiest places I have ever been for lunch. My husband took me here for a three-course lunch at the end of March. The food was excellent, but the setting and the decor meant that they are the main things I rave about. I still can't believe somewhere so beautiful exists and you can... More
