From the phone call to make the booking to leaving the restaurant the service was excellent ! Staff were very helpful, polite and there when you needed them. Great selection of food and beverages - everyone in our group (11 people) thought the selection was extensive and all enjoyed their food. Would recommend for a casual,fun place to go.

It's been a while but this place still has the same charm. The menu has changed a little, for the better too. Not that the old menu was shabby though. The sharing plates are a great idea and taste great. The tasting paddle of six glasses of Monteiths for $18.00 looks like a bargain too, just not for lunch with... More

The waitresses were attentive throughout. There were very very limited choices on the menu, we were very disappointed with this. We ordered... More

When travelling through Taupo around lunchtime we have always eaten at the Plateau as the food was always good and food selection excellent. However stopping for lunch today I was disappointed with the food selection and although my wife's soup was good, my curry was Luke warm and needed reheating. The curry itself was not nearly as good as they... More

We came here on a bit of a whim, but are glad we did. We were after a fairly early tea at about 6pm, and enjoyed a beer before moving through to the dining area. The meals were well priced and delicious. Service was attentive and friendly, and despite rugby and soccer on, we found that there wasn't any issue... More
