The views alone, especially on a balmy summers evening, make it a worthwhile experience but the food and ambience are also very good. The menu is fairly limited in options but this allows Oreti to produce quality dining.

Visited last night for the first time with two friends. We had the steak and duck. Beautifully prepared, melt in the mouth steaks, lovely presentation and very good wine matches with excellent prompt, friendly service.

We went with friends to this restaurant, very unassuming, and lovely atmosphere. The staff where helpful, and food arrived within a time period that was acceptable. The food was nice and presented well, this place is a hidden little gem.

Located in idyllic native bush, with a panoramic view of Lake Taupo, this is a fabulous spot. But there is more. The food and service are also absolutely top rating. Do not miss this restaurant if you are in the area.
