A vast improvement to the restaurant that resided in this place previously! Great refined food, a little more fussy than we are used to in Taupo but tasty all the same. The only critisim I have is that our main meals arrived at our table before our entrees had been cleared, I had literally finished my entree and had to start my main, I would have enjoyed a few minutes to let the first settle before starting on the second........but all was very tasty and I would be happy to return

OMG We walked into this place and were tranquilized by the beautiful aroma from the kitchen and then the amazing array of simple but incredible take on awesome Kiwi cuisine. Top class service, quality and just all round class at reasonable prices.
Live entertainment from local musician Paul Foulds just set this up as a hard gig to beat

Such a brilliant place to enjoy a beautiful dinner when cold and wet outside. The service was a class, food superb with freshness and vibrant flavours (pork belly so brilliant) all in a relaxed, warm environment with brilliant ambience. Highly recommend.

We had a great meal at the Bistro but were a little disappointed at the reduced menu. Out of a choice of 6 or 7 mains there were only 3 left at 6.30pm on a Sunday night. Our disappointment soon disappeared once the food arrived and the meals were delicious. Our waitress was charming and very hospitable. A great experience and we would return next time we are in Taupo.
