Well, after an extremely disappointing meal at a different restaurant in Taupo we were hesitant about dining out again and so decided to drive around and find a basic restaurant... We were drawn to the flames outside "the vine eatery" and so decided to check it out. We knew we were pushing it to get a table being 9pm on a Tuesday night and appreciated it hugely when they seated us with no problems.
Well, this was definitely not a basic restaurant. Being fine dining restaurant owners we are extremely picky of our food and quite often are very disappointed with our meals. The first awesome point of difference was being able to go over and choose our own wine from a huge wall of red and white wines. The white wine which was warm on the shelf was zap chilled and returned to our table within 2 minutes - perfectly chilled.
Our meals were exquisite, flavours were amazing with meat cooked to perfection. Entrees, mains and desserts were all of equal standard with the duck breast being my favourite.
Leanne was an incredible host, lots of personality, smiles and food and beverage knowledge.
Extremely impressed and would recommend to anyone anyday.
Congratulations team you've clearly worked hard and all the best for future trading.
