What a great restaurant and a real credit to the owners. Staff were impeccable and I would say world class. The food was devine (I ordered the confit duck) perfectly cooked and seasoned and a great wine list for choice. Finished off with a glass of red by the fire. Would highly recommend Plateau and can't wait to go back.

Very friendly and went the extra distance and moved us to a good table even though we were only having only a drink. Drink list was good. The menu did look good so we... More

Party of four had excellent meal here. Two of the party opted for three course set menu which was great value for $55. Service was exceptional! Only downside was a very limited option of vegan meals for one of the party. Overall would highly recommend.

We were looking for a good restaurant in Taupo to celebrate during a few days away. We had a few drinks and entree from the bar menu beside the fire, then a main and dessert from the restaurant menu at a table. Plateau is very versatile, from a leaner next to the bar, to soft seating, to formal restaurant. The... More

We went in on a very busy night and nothing was a problem. They made us feel so welcome and were very honest that they were busy but didn't forget us and checked in on us while we enjoyed a few drinks before heading to our table. The service was on point, friendly and helpful. The separation between the seating... More

The Plateau is a good quality gastro-pub. An interesting wine and beer list and a tempting menu. The food was very tasty and the staff were attentive and friendly. A good spot
