Central restaurant/cafe in the centre of taupo. Food portions were a good size, but certainly nothing wildly exciting. Slightly worrying was specifying an allergy to egg, but then being served meatballs that turned out to be bound with raw egg that triggered the allergy.
Despite only being half full they did have to warn us main meals would be at least 30 minutes. Most customers seemed to be there due to free drinks vouchers from their motels

Been there twice while staying in Taupo and I really enjoyed the nice atmosphere, the great lakeside location and the good food. Staff was attentive and friendly.

Very disappointed at poor quality of food (fish and chips - batter was poor, dark coloured, deep fired calamari - some of the pieces were cold!)and little interest by the staff (when accepting payment the male staff member did not even look at us!).

It's been a while since I have dined at "Dixie Browns" and every time I have had the same dish. This time the pork belly was dry and stringy and not what I have experienced in the past. My partners meal was "Welsh Rarebit" which he thoroughly enjoyed. Staff very well presented, neat, tidy and clean. Tables cleared promptly and the nice touch of "rugs" if sitting outside to combat the chill of the wind.
