This is the second time we have been in the last 12 months.Just as good this time as last. Friendly service from the bloke behind the bar, although the waitress we had seemed pretty unimpressed with life. Food arrived quickly - lots of it and the quality was great. No complaints and we'll be back next time we're in Taupo. Interesting loos :)

We first visited here in Jan 2013 and it was really good (just starting out I think). Returned again in Jan 2014 and they seem to be in over their heads. We booked a table for 4, but when we turned up there was no reserved table. When we were seated it took forever to take our orders, even longer to bring starters (CORN CHIPS!!!) and an eternity to bring the mains. All of which were averagely good. We also had to go up to the bar to order more drinks... This place has so much potential and a great vibe but they need to speed it up!

The restaurant looked supercute butwas empty at 7:30 when I arrived which rang alarm bells. The guy behind the bar was pretty cheesy and his customer service was a bit odd - a couple of things on the menu I asked about he expressed a dislike for. I ended up getting the corn chips and salsa entree. Pretty hard to stuff that up, although the chips were straight out of a packet and all smashed up. Nice salsa though. I got a Chicken burrito for the main. It was some kind of postmodern deconstructed interpretation of a burrito. The sour cream and black beans were served on the side, the cheese was grilled onto the outside of the tortilla and the ends weren't even folded over. It was a bit odd. In the end I just dumped everything onto the plate and chopped it into a sort of burrito salad which actually tasted alright...
