“Tasty meal on our last night in Taupo”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 16, 2013

The food was fresh and tasty. Staff were knowledgeable about the food and drink. Waitress kindly helped me choose a beer to go with my food. Had a lovely atmosphere. We were sat at the window and the view isn't that great (lorries and drivers going to get their feed at the fast food outlets)... However, it was what is happening inside that matters which was great! Highly recommended for a good feed, nice wine and rather good beers!

The food is tasty, well presented and great value. Whenever we are in Taupo Zeb is very welcoming and always finds us a table.

“Excellent Gastropub”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 10, 2013

We visited recently during the busy Xmas holiday period. We chose this place based on recommendations on Trip Advisor and we were not disappointed. Portions are very good size and my wife an I shared a starter of a beef salad which was fabulous. I had the pork belly which was a treat and my wife said the venison burger was equally delicious. An excellent wine list with very good price point options. Waiters very friendly and service was excellent. Also child friendly. Highly recommended and would dine here again when we next visit the region.

My son and I found the food exceptional at Plateau. Our motel hosts recommended this lovely restaurant. Service was very good and the meal was so enjoyable we returned the following night.

“Lovely food and exceptional service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 10, 2012

Loved our meal in the restaurant - five star food and fantastic wine selection. During winter I love the fireplace for a place to meet friends for a drink. Great atmosphere here in the evenings.
