We got a recommendation for Lakeland Restaurant from our Innkeeper in Turangi. Tonight we followed her recommendation for dinner.
Our dinner was beautiful. We took the seafood chowder, the Greek salad, the lamb rack and for dessert the Panna Cotta.
All was very tasty, especially the seafood chowder and the lamb rack.
The service was also very good.
We enjoyed our dinner very much!

The restUrant is in a stunning location on the side of the lake which is the best thing about this place. I have a shrimp cocktail for starters and it was just ok. For mains I had the seafood pasta dish and my wife had the chicken pasta dish. The creamy sauce of both dishes was over powering. The service was just passable although very polite.

We were recommended this restaurant by a shopkeeper in Turangi. It is a bit hard to find as signage is bad. It is roughly two km from Tokannu, on Waihi Rd. The restaurant is directly on the lakefront...black swans, lots of other avian life...spectacular lake views. Very romantic and quiet.
Our lunch today was excellent. One of us had a chicken/chorizo pasta dish, the other a fillet steak sandwich...both very generous, tasty, well presented and the steak was done as I had asked for..medium rare. It was served with a side salad and fries on the side plus sauce on the side.
The Maitre de/ waiter did an excellent job.

We each had a very nice glass of Hawkes Bay Pinot Gris at $7 a glass, on special.

Surprising upscale food, only 10 minutes from Turangi. Despite the categorization as "Pacific Rim" cuisine, this is more like 'Continental European.' The filet mignon and rack of lamb were both about NZ$32 and were perfectly prepared. The wine list is good. Be sure to make reservations in the summer.
