High tea at $28 per head was not value for money as the sandwiches that were served were so stale they curled up at the ends. High tea was to celebrate a 90th birthday and although the venue was booked the service was not up to expectation of a fairly high class restaurant.

Dear Leola S - it is very upsetting to read your comments and also, most unusual. I have so many praises for our service staff, menus, and these high teas that I can not understand how this could happen to you on this special occasion. Please accept sincere apologies and assurance that I will look into the situation with staff concerned. Best wishes Diane

The service was very good, the food was beautiful and there was a good wine list. Main meals cost about about $30-35. the menu was quite varied, we had the chicken breast and vegetables and the snapper on gnocchi with vegetables. It tasted very fresh. We enjoyed our dinner there and would recommend it.

We were travelling to Wellington and arrived in Taupo at lunch time. What a busy place. Parking was hard to find in the centre of the city so we continued to drive south and after looking on trip advisor stopped at Edgewater. We were offered a choice of indoor or outdoor dining right on the lake edge. The views if the lake and mountains were amazing. The restaurant staff were friendly and enjoyed conversation. We were the only people having lunch ( the staff reported an extra busy breakfast/ brunch session.)Food arrived in a timely manner and was delicious. This was a perfect break from our long drive. The toilets are wonderful too! This is a top quality place to eat in a relaxing atmosphere. I will look forward to returning.

This was a really nice meal. We weren't expecting much because it was one of the only places we could walk to. But the meal was really great and the view was amazing. The oyster special in particular was superb.
