“Very good meet, nice presentation and excellent service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2014

We went there 2 times in 2 days we spent in Taupo last week.
We liked very much the meet served on hot cooking stones. Chicken, lamb beef tasting plate was really nice. Very good desserts too.

Service was fast and efficient

“Disapointing.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2014

Staff members did not have allocated tables, so we were offered drinks by 3 staff members in 5 minutes and ignored when we needed drinks later. Food was OK. Presumably the same problem in the kitchen and the salt was added 3 times to the chips. Gnocchi arrived cold. By the time it was re-heated, the overcooked vegetables were cold (I know it's a strange combination).

“So many other better places”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2014

We ordered a gnocchi which was clumpy and bland. And a pizza. Service was slow, they forgot about the pizza. When we reminded the waitress she brought it out. Wasn't the best pizza we've eaten either.

We had a beer which was ok, but the other places we went to had better prices and bigger glasses!

They weren't interested in the service and we had to go to the kitchen to ask for ketchup and mustard.

Wouldn't recommend. Try pub n grub next door. Better food, better beer and better service!

“Relaxing atmosphere, good choice of beers”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2013

Definitely a place worth going to when coming through Taupo, I enjoyed the stonegrill a lot, never had a dinner like that before. Quick service and nice to try several different beers as well. :) Amazing views of the lakefront!
