The view from the dining room over the lake at sunset is superb. The menu provides a good selection and the duck course was probably the best I have tasted. The wine is a little... More

Had late dinner ( 8.45-pm sitting ) ., our table was unfortunately occupied by other guests and we were sitted near the entrance which was very busy with wait staff coming and going. Food was classically cooked and beautifully presented.

My partner and I visited this place for dinner and right from the start we were made to feel like royalty. The staff were attentive and engaging and the food was brilliant. Fresh, tasty, well priced and definitely well worth a visitor you're staying in Taupo.

The options in Taupo are not many and that may be the cause for the Edgewater's overpriced menu. However, the food is good and the service is as well. The restaurant strives for a classy feel and sits right on Lake Taupo which gives guests a wonderful view.

Had excellent memories of this restaurant from years ago but was not sure if the a la carte standard would still be as good. It didn't disappoint. Exquisite cuisine, wide menu and wine choice, primo location on the shore of Lake Taupo with unobscured views of the lake and setting sun. Service was of a standard seldom seen these days... More
