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.

“Wonderful....”
Reviewed April 22, 2014

We were in Taupo for the night and found The Brantry on Trip Adviser and decided to try. Wow we were not dissappointed. From the moment we arrived to the moment we left the service, the food and the atmosphere was absolutely wonderful, could not find fault with anything. Cannot recommend highly enough and we will back next time we are in Taupo.

“Creative and Tasty”
Reviewed April 17, 2014 via mobile

Our dinners were creatively prepared and beautifully presented. Portions are on the small side so adding a side to the fixed price courses is advisable. We even had a slice of excellent bread offered as part of dinner. Little did we know when beginning this holiday that bread with dinner would usually be a $10 additional. The restaurant does not seat many and it was full so have a reservation. Also, it is set back from the street with a minimally lighted sign so it is a bit hard to spot in the dark.

“Brilliant”
Reviewed April 11, 2014

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.

“Excellence on a plate”
Reviewed April 11, 2014 via mobile

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...
