We called for a table at the last minute and the kind staff accommodated us. Food was served promptly and the quality good. We enjoyed the meal and their home made olive butter was Yums. Their set menu was priced reasonably - $55 per person for 3 course dinner.

Had a really excellent meal here - fantastic food, first class service and atmosphere. Great vegetarian meal and my partner said his lamb was tender and delicious. Loved their quince jelly w kikorangi cheese. Highly recommended.

Absolutely amazing!!! We went to The Brantry after coming across it on Trip Advisor. A Taupo local also suggested it. It is situated away from the rest of the local eateries, so lucky to have found it. Perfect for a girls night out or a romantic dinner. $150 for 2 people which included 2x 3 course meals and a bottle... More

We stayed in Taupo for two nights and first day were really upset with the place in Hilton Hotel - basic food for crazy pice thus we went to The Brantry. 55 NZD for a set menu with 5-6 dishes to choose for starter/main/desserts. Great choice of wines and craft beers. Good service!!! Well done!!!!

Been here a few times and the food never disappoints! Staff are friendly and even made my wife a cocktail which they don't usually serve :) One of the best in town without a doubt!

Visiting from Auckland for my husband's birthday weekend and based on TA review of #1 restaurant on Taupo I booked the Brantry for dinner last night. What a wonderful experience- the service was warm and professional, the ambience of sitting by the fire when we arrived for a pre-dinner drink, the beautiful glassware on the tables, and best part -...

This was such a quaint little place and just gorgeous. It's out of the way and unless you knew you were going there you would probably drive right past. I like that though. The place was just beautiful. The staff were great and helpful. The meals were affordable and amazing. Will definitely be back
