“Beautiful dinner in boutique bistro”
Reviewed January 16, 2014

We just loved our dinner in this restaurant. There were six of us and all had a great experience and fab dinners. All staff were excellent too. It wasn't large either which i really like. Seating distance was good and we didn't have to shout at each other to be heard, which is so often the case these days.

I would highly recommend it and we will return next time we are in Taupo.

“Delicious food with professional, attentive staff”
Reviewed January 12, 2014

Great waitresses and service was prompt. Food was great, with a good choice of items, as well as specials and the kids' menu was just as delicious. Would definitely go back.

“Fresh and delicious food. Fun and friendly staff !”
Reviewed January 11, 2014

This place is really great. A surprise to find food of such high quality.

The fish was exactly how you'd hope for it to be. Pumpkin soup was absolutely delish. Best meal I've had in NZ.
