“delicious meal”
Reviewed December 19, 2011

Had a really tasty gourmet pizza (Quatro) - wait staff were lovely (especially our waitress who had a great sense of humour and was very helpful). Service was quick and attentive without being overly solicitous.

“Great dining experience - highly recommended”
Reviewed December 4, 2011

I travel a lot and eat out a lot. This restaurant was truly a great experience from start to finish. The staff was excellent - fantastic service - great advice on wine- even got to meet the chef. The food was fabulous. We ate there three nights in a row and every meal was as good as the next. They even cooked the trout we caught on our Lake Taupo fishing trip. So good! Don't leave Taupo without having a meal here

“Enjoyable evening”
Reviewed October 20, 2011

We decided to try this place out on a trip to Taupo. We went based on a few reviews we'd read, not knowing it was a 'celebrity chef' restaurant. The restaurant was very busy, but staff were friendly and efficient and the ambience was lovely and relaxed. There was a good choice on the menu, and some lovely wines. Would definitely recommend this place if you want something a bit special.
