We stopped here to warm up on a cool lunchtime.

It was super to have a log fire too.

“Good food, great service, gorgeous location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2014

We stayed at The Cheeky Tui at Lake Tarawera and The Landing was recommended by the owners. There was a menu in our cabin which looked good, so we made a reservation because there were six of us including two small children. The staff were very helpful and flexible about staying open beyond the usual closing time. There were three parties when we were there all served by the same young waitress with great attention to detail and a big smile. The views across Lake Tarawera were wonderful. The food was good quality and excellent portions. Very enjoyable.

“Food expensive and not that fancy”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2014

Ordered Shrimp Caesars Salad. Nothing like a Ceasars salad, just the cheap salad mix resturants buy in and for the price difference between a shrimp one and a non shrimp one I think I got about 5 shrimps which probably equated to $1 per shrimp. Average salad, not done the traditional Ceasar way with cos lettuce. The Pork dumpling meal my partner had was tiny for the price. Not value for money, the location great but wouldn't return for the food.

“So peaceful”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 23, 2013

We had dinner here with friends and thought it was a magical spot. The building itself fits into the environment and the decor inside is very plain, but the views across the lake are just gorgeous. There was only one waitress and she was very good and attentive. Our food was excellent and we would certainly visit again and recommend.
