“Pleasant and friendly”
Reviewed August 23, 2014

We had a wine, coffee and breads and dips here one afternoon. We were the only ones in the cafe but the wait staff was very helpful and quick. The evening menu looked very promising, prices between $29 - $34 plus veges. But the setting is delightful overlooking vines and the house is very attractive with a large deck.

We had a very enjoyable Lunch at Café Pinot.
We sat outside. (in Winter). It was a lovely day and there is a very good view
of the surrounding countryside round Taupo.
Food was delicious and the price reasonable.

“Top-notch - great wining and dining experience with our terrific waitress, Jess”
Reviewed June 11, 2014

Cafe Pinot is a winery restaurant located on Huka Falls Road, around 4 km after the main viewpoints for the Huka Falls.

The setting is wonderful - clean and quaint with a great view over the winery. The food is prepared in front of you and food is terrific - we had lunch but there is a brunch menu as well. Several wines are available, by the glass or bottle. I wasn't aware of a tasting menu in the restaurant.

Our waitress, Jess, was excellent and we really had one of our top meals in New Zealand here.
