The food here is outstanding, as is the service. This is magnificent experience and one you should not miss. The three course meal costs NZ$ 55 which, considering the quality is marvellous value for money. The wine list is very god and reasonably priced, more so than many other eateries in Taupo. The service is some of the best we... More

Went to The Brantry last night and had great food. The staff were very attentive and friendly. Food was excellent and would thoroughly recommend . The main is just the meat so side dishes were needed and were tasty . Third time here and will be back .

Wow this place is fantastic. The setting, the staff and the food are just amazing. The price point of the meals make this fantastic place easy for everyone to try this amazing place. Don't leave taupo without having a dinner out either with friends or as a couple.

Booked here after a concert, we were all glad we did, from the wine selection to the desserts, everything was great, nice atmosphere and we all left commenting that we had a great experience. Not a place if you are in a rush, this is the type of place you go to sit an relax.

The 3 courses were 10/10, quite large enough and perfect in every respect. Polite wait staff, lovely location. I would recommend this to everyone. We had the 3 course option which was $55.00 per person. A great range of dishes, something for everyone.

The menu is innovative and delicious, plenty of choice for the set meal. $45 for two courses and $55 for three courses. Beautiful setting in the conservatory on a summer's evening. The Brantry has won several beef and lamb awards and is certainly up there on the places to dine in Taupo. Just could not fault the meal nor service.

This restaurant was recommended by the owners of the motel we were staying at and what a great wee place for dinner! The prices are very reasonable, the food was delicious. We sat outdoors in the garden area, great atmosphere. Service was impeccably timed, very friendly and polite staff. The thing that really won me though was the bread service... More

We came here on a recommendation (and booking) from our motel. Seems to be some sort of kickback scheme as we did also get given a card for 2 free drinks (and every other couple seemed to have one as well) - not complaining though (just seemed a bit odd). Menu was fixed price - $45 for 2 courses, and... More
