Really enjoyed our dinner at the Brantry. The atmosphere is good and the food is delicious. We had not ordered starters but they brought us a small complimentary snack anyway. They have a standard price for each course $15 for starters or deserts, $30 for mains, $45 for two courses and $55 for three courses. This makes it simple and... More

I dined here recently as part of a large group, and was most impressed. We took the $55 option for a three course dinner - and all my colleagues spoke very highly of it. The food was beautifully presented, there was an excellent range of options, and the service was impeccible. Being a large group we were fairly spread out,... More

This restaurant was recommended to us by the owner of Beechtree suites just across the road. The restaurant has a lovely home-like dining atmosphere. The food was superb and the waiting staff knowledgeable, friendly and attentive. The prices were reasonable and very good value considering the quality of the meals. Highly recommended.

This restaurant has deservedly earned its outstanding reviews on TripAdvisor, which drew us to go there. Not only was the food delicious and well cooked, it was original and even fairly healthy. The chef had clearly worked at avoiding all those "same old, same old" combinations and come up with imaginative dishes which you won't find anywhere else. Local produce... More

Myself and my partner enjoyed a 3 course meal here last night. Thoroughly enjoyed our meals, the best food we have eaten in Taupo. Cooked to perfection and presented stunningly too. Could not fault a thing! Wonderful food & fabulous service from knowledgable and friendly waitresses.

Place was very nice and friendly and obviously a local favourite, which gave it a great atmosphere. The food was very tasty (the only exception was the over cooked seasonal vegetables) but the rest of it was very good. Service was very good and friendly.

On a cold Friday night this was warm and welcoming so we expected great things. The wait staff were very knowledgeable about the menu and going out of their way to make sure you understood all the options. The wine list while good lacked enough options by the glass. The food came very fast, our mains arrived just after entree... More

So glad we booked for dinner at this restaurant, based on other reviews on this forum. We opted for the 3 course menu - I had the squid and hubby had the prawns. Both were fantastic, thought the squid was a rather small size entree. I had the eye fillet for main and he chose the lamb neck - both... More
