French bistro fare with flair. Enjoy a gorgeous dinner on Friday & Saturday nights where the chef uses the best of Taupo's ingredients with real French flair. Bon appetite.

“Superb French showcasing the best of NZ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 23, 2013 via mobile

We have frequently dined at the cafe and thoroughly enjoyed the pastries and cafe food. Tonight we experienced authentic French cuisine showcasing the best Kiwi ingredients at very reasonable prices. This really should be a must visit in Taupo.

“Tres Bon”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 10, 2013

Cute little french cafe, housed just a street from town. Has most french yummies, snails, confit duck, crepes, galettes etc & a wonderful sweet section pastries, eclairs & desserts.
Friendly & fast service, even though they had quite a few customers. Nice outside area for those warmer days. Will be our new spot to go to when we are in Taupo.

“We love it here :)”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 30, 2013 via mobile

We enjoyed a leisurely brunch with great food, coffe, service and atmosphere. Well set up for families with play ground outside and nappy change table in toilet, not that we needed it as the relaxed background music kept our baby asleep. Bliss!
