We loved our meal at the Edgewater Restaurant and cant wait to return on our next trip to Taupo. I had the duck and it was absolutely delicious! A new menu had just come out and I can highly recommend the food I ate - it was fantastic. The duck was on a coconut rice cake which I loved. My husband had the lamb loin which came with goats' cheese and fig strudel - looked and tasted fabulous according to him. We finished off with the chocolate platter - delish!!!
We had the most amazing night with a table almost on the water's edge. The staff were extremely friendly, very attentive and made the whole experience very memorable. Great service and a wonderful night.

the food was great but it shouldn't take three and a half hours for dinner with the family (8 of us) and only one other couple in there. Took the order and served the entrees before I had to ask for someone to take the wine order. would have done it earlier but no one about. Used to be fantastic service but now staff english very limited and communication problems meant service was snail pace. Been going here for years for special occasions but will go somewhere else next time

This well-appointed upmarket restaurant situated right on the water's edge of lake Taupo is a delight. There is a lovely variety of food available for varrying tastes and is beautifully prepared and served. If you are dining and wish to sit by the window, you may be blinded by the setting sun, so depending on your dining time, an alternative is to sit further back in the 'upper' seating area. We sat by the window to see a setting sun in it's final throws, which threw magnificent colours.

We read the review before we go there. Maybe our expectation was too high. The food was yummy, friendly service and good location. I enjoyed the food but no reason to go back again.

We don't usually do 'buffet' style dinners, but this was very good.
