“Exceptional!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2013

Real 5-star experience! Beautiful setting looking out over Lake Taupo.
Exquisite food (best venison I've ever had) and very professional staff who understand the menu.
Will definitely return.

“Great Views, Service and Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2013

Our first evening in New Zealand and this was the perfect venue. We had a beer before dinner and a wonderful meal. We had shared an appetizer so I was perfectly happy with my spicy lamb entree while my husband enjoyed the main of lamb shank. My Brancott Riesling was an excellent choice with the entree.

“Excellent service and food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2013 via mobile

Maybe we were not used to NZ food and restaurant prices. The meal was delicious, huge variety, gracious service and beautiful lakefront location. I would certainly recommend this to others. It may be a bit hard to find though keep on as it is really good and gracious dining.

“Beautiful views of Lake Taupo”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2013

We went for a quick bite to eat before we went sightseeing. We were welcomed by a lovely lady at the bar who took us outside as it was lovely and sunny. We decided to have a snack lunch. It was beautiful and it was just lovely to sit and relax and look out to Lake Taupo while scoffing a rather delicioius steak sandwich. It truly is beautiful. Service was great and helpful. Recommended.

“Awesome View of the Lake”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2013

This restaurant is right on the lake front and enjoys spectacular views accordingly. We have eaten here twice and both times found the food to be good and the staff and service great. There is also a lovely lounge bar in the same complex complete with leather chairs set around a huge fireplace which enjoys the same lovely views and is good for a pre-dinner drink or just a drink if you are not feeling like dinner!
