Nice restaurant inside and the food was very good, if not outstanding. Staff friendly and efficient. I'd go back if in Taupo again.

We visited for dinner n a Friday night. The place was not too busy. Freindly welcome and attentive staff. Dishes were the right size and food tasty, but nothing too adventurous. Well worth a visit
