“Good food, great views”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2013

Lovely spot to have lunch or dinner. Enormous deck to enjoy a meal on a sunny day overlooking the vine yard and historic church. Very good menu and good service. Have dined here both for lunch and dinner and food was equally good each service.

“Outstanding”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 22, 2013

We went for dinner at this lovely cafe.
I cannot speak highly enough of their staff and food.
We went on the night of January 18th and would certainly go there again when next in Taupo.

“One of the better meals I've had with a large group”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 8, 2012

We booked Cafe Pinot for a large conference group (40+ diners) and were not disappointed. Food was of a decent quality and served in a timely fashion - it's usual with big groups to have a few people waiting for ever and/or missed out completely, but Cafe Pinot were up to the task. It's a nice room to dine in, and I'd imagine the deck would be great in Summer (wasn't game to try it in the middle of Winter, Taupo gets a bit chilly...)!

“excellent meal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 3, 2012

Had fabulous meal tonight, could not fault it. Staff were helpful and very friendly. If you are in Taupo we would recommend you give them a try. The prawn risotto was delicious, my partner had the pea and ham soup which we shared and we both had the eye fillet in a red peppercorn jus. Yum, delicious.
