We decided to try this restaurant based on the good reviews on Tripadvisor. We wanted a tasty, no fuss, good value meal. My husband loves lamb shanks, and the menu said these would not disappoint... and they didn't. The lamb shanks had lots of meat on them, the mash potato was creamy and divine, and the vegetables were cooked just right. The service was good too. It's a short distance from the town centre, and definitely seems like a locals place, but well worth trying if in Taupo.
