“Great night out”
Reviewed July 3, 2014

Probably the highlight of our trip as far as restaurants are concerned. Great food and good service. It was at night so the view over the lake could not really be appreciated.

Ate here on our first night in Taupo, the meal was excellent and the chowder one of the best I have ever had. The service was friendly and very professional.

“Beautiful but.....”
Reviewed May 21, 2014

We have recently moved to the Taupo area. We chose this restaurant to celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary because of the great online reviews. There are many great dining places here in Taupo but sadly for us this was not. Pluses, Staff - friendly, helpful & well presented, beautiful presentation in the restaurant (loved the artwork on the walls). We hoped the food would improve as the evening progressed but it did not. Total let down & very dissapointed in an evening that could have been worth remembering.

Dear hapeta68- it is most upsetting to read your review, also most unusual to hear of disappointment with meals. Our pride and excellent reputation is based on top cuisine and friendly professional service, so, with this in mind I ask if you are willing to share more information with me re meal feedback, in order for me to pass onto Chef and team. We appreciate and welcome constructive comments as a way to guarantee guest satisfaction and return guests to our beautiful restaurant. please email dining@manuels with contact details and reference to enable us to address this situation. Sincerely Diane

“Superb dining experience”
Reviewed May 20, 2014 via mobile

We have eaten with you regularly over the past few months and you have never failed to exceed our expectations. The chefs specials are always a delight to try and differ each time we have been. The staff are always attentive and well trained. The view is superb also and all the tables are sited to take advantage of the lake and sunset. Can't wait to return.

“Fantastic!”
Reviewed May 18, 2014

We came here for a dinner for two and it impressed our socks off! The service was impeccable, all staff were dressed perfectly, had fantastic manners and were just amazing. We each had an entree and a main and they were amazing. Thank you for a relaxing night off from cooking and doing the dishes!!
