“bit average”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 27, 2013

theres so much on the menu they really don't stand for anything.
food nothing special unless you are just hungry and don't really mind what you eat.
Try some of the other Taupo restaurants if you want a lovely meal.

“Great cappuccino”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 22, 2013

Really nice coffee in the cappuccino . Slow service in fact we thought they had forgotten us as we were seated outside. The cappuccino was worth waiting for and the kind touch of a little rug for sitting outside was very thoughtful. A little more expensive than other places in Taupo.

“Good food and portions, but nothing special”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 18, 2013 via mobile

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.
