This was the last night of our holiday, the weather was cold & miserable & we are a bit jaded from eating out.
Then we come to The Crooked Door with its Swiss chalet style charm & good food. There are "iti" dishes for the nibblers. These are like tapas. The portions are generous & very tasty & the service good considering the staff to patron ratio.
We would dine here again

Every time we visit Taupo we have to go to the crooked door. I just love their food. The waitress could not do enough we could have our meal any way we liked very accomodating. The meal was beautifully cooked and dessert was very enjoyable.

Friendly staff, we didn't have a long wait on our meals or drinks and it was very busy... Meals are huge but they offer a doggy bag to take your leftovers if you wish.. A++
