“Room for improvement!!”
Review of Breakers Cafe and Bar - CLOSED

Breakers Cafe and Bar
Restaurant details
Reviewed February 11, 2013

Breakers Taupo is situated in a great area with loads of space. Food arrived promptly and was enjoyable. Breakers stands out from the rest as they are well priced compared to neighboring restaurants in the area. Although the price you pay definitely shows from the service and vibe you receive from their staff.

We ordered our meal from the bar where we didn't receive a friendly greeting nor told where we could find condiments for our meal. Further i asked where the tomato sauce was once our meal arrived at our table; i was told bluntly where i could find it. It would of been nice if the waiter could bring it out to me especially with the amount of chips that were on the plate!! The restaurant wasn't busy.

The service from the front of house staff was poor.
Would you like another drink sir? Would you like to see our range of desserts?. Why are these staff not giving us a service that the consumer expects. No vibe or can do attitude about them. Seems to be the same service every time some one drags you in.

I've been to other Breakers restaurants and Taupo is by far lacking in a vibrant atmosphere. As a local i will be reluctant to go back. For the Taupo community its a big let down.

We love this place for many reasons. It has a very wide space, kids would have a corner to go and play, adults can chat in its spacious tables or get entertained by playing billiard or watch TV, the staff are friendly and the food is just awesomely served big. If you want value for money this is the place to have dinner. The place can become crowded on peak holidays so understandably the food may come a little delayed so we kind of expect that every time we visit. My family's favourites are the chicken diane, the kiwi burger, the steak, the potato chips are really good! If you like pepper sauce then you can have that as an extra for your steak, and dessert is complete with ' death by chocolate'.

We all enjoyed the meal which arrived promptly. There was a good amount of food on the plate and we enjoyed the fish pie and chicken meal as well as the roast meal.
