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.

What a really nice place to visit, those little extras that were provided (the bread at the start and the sorbet before the main) were a nice touch. The staff are friendly, the atmosphere pleasant and the meal reasonably priced. My only comment would be for me the mains selection was limiting - I'm a red meat and potatoes man.

Had a few days in the area whilst on our New Zealand vacation the Brantry was recommended to us by our motel, we've had some very good meals whilst here and this restaurant did not disappoint one bit a super entrée of Halloumi followed by a fillet of beef with roast beetroot and braised shallots was stunning finished by chocolate tart with honey cream, all dishes perfectly presented and full of flavour... Service was unhurried and attentive at the correct levels all in all very impressive...

We had a superb meal here last night! We found the Bantry on tripadvisor and booked it. So glad we did as it was full on a Wednesday night! The food was superb - really interesting flavours, such as squid with caramel and tamarind sauce! The dessert was the piece de resistance though, chai latte cheesecake - sublime!!!

Our Motelier recommended the Brantry, and he got it right. Great setting, great staff,great atmosphere, incredibly good food. My wife had the Grilled Halloumi entree and the Duck Leg Confit main, while I settled for the Salt and Pepper Squid entree and the Slow Cooked Lamb Neck Fillet. All four dishes were superb. We will certainly return when next we visit Taupo.

My husband and I had a lovely quiet dinner here. The food was fresh and tasty, and the staff were very friendly. Well worth a visit.
