Visit anytime of the day, the food and atmosphere is pretty good. Generous servings, fresh food and a view of the famous Lake Taupo itself. Going in for brunch.. Treat yourself to an iced coffee, you'll be glad you did.

We have the most beautiful steaks here. It gets very busy in Taupo in summer so we went to a thermal pool and came back for a late dinner.

We felt we were waiting a while for our waitress to take our order then our food took a while to come however it was a busy Saturday and the... More
