Lovely Surprise

Stayed over night while travelling to Wellington, and had dinner. What a pleasant surprise, food was delicious. Had the lamb cutlets, and also the steak both were cooked to perfection. Generous helpings, the service was quick and very friendly.

My husband and I ate dinner here and was very pleased. The fish that I had was one of the best I have ever tasted. The facility is very clean with a nice ambiance. I would highly recommend.

Had a visit from my sister and we went for dinner there. It was very enjoyable, the meal was scrummy and the wine was a perfect match. The restaurant was very well setup.

The meal was very well presented and was of a good size. It was value for money with a good selection of choice The only thing of note was the waitress did not know what I was wanting when I ordered a liqueur coffee and wanted Drambuie in it

Probably the best meal my wife and I have had in the many years we have travelled to Taupo and Turangi . Dinner was superb . Lamb cutlets were tantalisingly meaty - really tender . My wife's orange roughy was fresh and fleshy . The meals were generous - the prices more than reasonable . Why we were the only... More

Atmosphere of the restaurant is superb. Nice and quite, allows you to talk to your friends over the table and actually get heard. Food is great and service is brilliant.

i visited twice for dinner with locals who eat here regularly. this made for a very welcoming atmosphere. we ate in the tv-foyer-bar area at the few tables/sofas here, instead of the restaurant proper. mid-range price, classic kiwi restaurant fare, there was rugby on the big screen and locals all talking together at the bar and tables including the staff.
