“Take away service second to none”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 26, 2012

There was a queue for a table and we decided not to wait so they agreed to do a pizza takeaway for us. Very good value and plenty for the two of us - delicious

“Excellent food at very reasonable prices”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 22, 2012

My wife and I shared a pizza... and it was still too big for us. The pizza was massive, and they were not shy with the toppings, either. And the taste was fantastic. Overall, excellent food at very reasonable prices.
We also liked the view to the lake.
But all this can be wiped away in one sweep if the service is not up to scratch. Fortunately, we found the service to be excellent also. This will now be our favourite place to visit every time we go to Taupo.

“Best meal & service I've ever had!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 21, 2012

I am not an exaggerator but this is so far the BEST meal & service we as a couple have ever had! My brother-in-law was with us also & he also thought the same.
Refreshing not to have to look to ask for another drink or try to make eye contact with someone because you're ready to order. Well done!
Food was delicious,mouth is watering as I remember:) Hope to return when we come back to Taupo. Views of the lake were lovely too.

“Just like an American Restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 20, 2012

We stopped in for brunch as we were passing by. The food was great with a cool modern interior. As an American abroad this reminded me of home! Tip: Check the breakfast menu specials on the board out front and remember them as they are not on the menu inside... a bit sketchy

It is good to know that even though you were so far away from home we made you feel weclome and at home with us.

We have recently completed a total refurbishment of the restaurant and have also launched our new menu along with a wine list designed around the menu by the well respected Sommelier Cameron Doyle and are very excited to already be getting such positive feedback from our customers.

Hello

Thank you for your feedback on your recent visit to Dixie Browns of Taupo.

How nice to be able to sit overlooking the beautiful Lake Taupo while indulging in a wonderful breakfast.

Did you know that we now offer a free evening shuttle service to and from your Taupo Motel? Thats right we can pick you up from your motel, take you to Dixie Browns for dinner and drop you back to your motel. Now you dont have to worry about parking or who will be driving home after a nice glass of wine, or two!

We do hope to see you here again in the near future.

Kind Regards
