We booked on the night. Had a lovely experience. Service and food impeccable. Nice ambience. Low ceilings and intimate. Would love to visit there again. Not in town centre, enjoyed the 10 min walk from hotel.

Love this place which is cosy, romantic and the food is very delicious. 3 courses $55 are very good deal. Fine dining quality food and the wine is so good. I had two glasses of Pinot Noir from the Martinborough region. I will highly recommended this place especially for special occasion. It is one of the highlights of our honeymoon.

Attentive service from lovely staff, gorgeous menu, and superb food. Most of our group had the 3 course option, while I had one, so to help 'fill in' the gap for me waiting for the others to enjoy their courses, a wee mini taster was offered at no cost. A very well thought out gesture. We would return any time.

5 of us wonderful friendly service great 'set' menu with 2-3 course options with or without beef. $55 for 3 course really good value. We all ate different items off the menu and my con fit of duck was superb. Fully licensed but we didnt enquire about BYO. Would not hesitate to recommend.

This place is amazing. We didn't have a booking and they were able to accommodate us. The food was amazing with a choice of a 3 course meal or individual. You won't be disappointed.

On our short weekend trip to Taupo we decided to eat a little fancier than usual and chose The Brantry and a 3 course meal. First up was entrees, the shredded duck salad and prawn tails, the duck salad was awesome! For mains we had the lambs neck and the pork belly, out of the two I'd say the lambs... More
