We luckily stopped by for dinner on a one night stay in Taupo. My wife is celiac and was catered for without worry. I enjoyed 3 courses and had wine to match which left me longing for more, if only i had the space to fit it in. The servings were generous and of a high standard. The service was... More

A good quality restaurant in all respects only thing that let it down was the flavours did not quite work and it lacked a little finesse. Wines by the glass were OK but again lacked the quality you would expect. Great setting, hearty food.

The staff is nice enough. I had the baked Halloumi entree which was fantastic & the Salmon main which was also really good. Weird part was you were only allowed one slice of bread (I did leave still hungry) and the menu is priced oddly in that they have a price for two courses $45. Or three courses $55. But... More

The atmosphere, the environment, the location, the menu & the wine list - all superb! It was the food & the presentation& the incredibly gracious & competent service that impressed me the most. We were a party of 5 foodies who all gave it top marks. I'll go back!

Food, service, wine, price ..... all sensational. This is an absolute must if you are in Taupo. Looks a bit quirky from the street but it was truly fantastic. Do make sure you book.

Dined here after being unable to get in at another place, and a bystander tipped us off about The Brantry. Was a good find. Simple focused NZ cuisine menu. Both the Grilled Halloumi & Crispy Squid entrees were excellent. The Slow Cooked Lamb Neck Fillet main was unreal - melted in the mouth & the Salmon main (Fresh Market Fish)... More

Had a really nice meal last Friday been a few times before and found it very noisy as quite low ceilings but asked epically for the private small room on the left as you go in which can hold up to 8 it was superb. The service made you feel very well looked after and the food was delicious and... More

We had a lovely evening here with friends and our kids. Surprisingly the refined menu was good for all ages including my vegetarian daughter. I had the prawns for entree and then duck and loved the flavours a lot. Our waiter was very good and his food and wine knowledge along with warm personally real made the night. I see... More
