Description: The Brantry is located in a 1950's town house tastefully renovated to create a special ambience for any dining occasion. The low ceilings, large open fire and timeless decor gives a sense of style that owners Prue and Felicity are proud of. The food is described as contemporary New Zealand cuisine. Proud New Zealander Prue believes there is a wealth of food options here on our doorstep. The menu is updated seasonally to access all the freshest produce. The Brantry is a perfect venue for weddings we can organise everything from name tags to flowers.

“Excellent birthday dinner”
Reviewed August 19, 2012

Great place managed by 2 sisters in an old house; very nice service and marvellous plates. The menu is original with local / NZ ingredients. A bit lower for the desserts. The wine could be kept in better conditions even if the one we choose was excellent. Keep going sisters!

“A character restaurant”
Reviewed August 11, 2012 via mobile

We had a family dinner there with our 4 yrs old son. The service was great, staff were very friendly, the food was tasty and everyone enjoyed the desert. We love the house dinning style, what a hidden gem in Taupo. Highly recommended.

“A Taupo gem”
Reviewed August 2, 2012 via mobile

Finding top quality dining in Taupo is not always easy but this place delivers every time. Something of an old world charm about the setting - a lovely building and elegantly appointed. FOH service is friendly and attentive. They know the menu and when to offer advice. Wine list is superb. The menu is a revelation- great choices of fresh NZ ingredients cooked by someone who knows their trade. Take some time over your meal. It will be rewarded.

“Hidden gem”
Reviewed July 1, 2012 via mobile

It's a little off the main road, but worth finding. Felicity was a lovely hostess and the food was delicious. The chicken ravioli entre, followed by the terekehi (I may not have spelled it correctly but it's a flaky fish), finished with the pre-ordered apple turnover was fabulous. We went early on a Sunday evening and it was quiet, but based on the reviews and time you go, you may want to make reservations.
