We had tea here the one night we stayed at Lake Takepo recently (a Wednesday night), we hadn't made a booking but that wasn't an issue. Wait staff were very attentive and we never felt like we'd been forgotten about. We both ordered the stone grill (cook your own meat at your table).
The place was humming, there was quite a crowd dining that night.
Food and drinks were brought out in good time, the food was delicious.
Would highly recommend having a bite to eat here.

What a great place! Fantastic food, view, service, atmosphere & pricing. I wish I could give a five, but I need to retain that for the best of the best! The food here was great, we all had the stonegrill to make the most if NZ beef. Great choice! 400g rump & two sides known as 'the challenge' at $29.50 - best priced steak we've found on the island! Plus...you can't put a price on the view!!!

This place was so good when we went there for lunch, we went back for dinner too! The views from the window seats are breath taking, the staff were very helpful and accommodating. The chefs did a wonderful job with the meals! And it was all done in a very quick professional manner. Nothing bad to say about this place! We love it. If only there was more of them exactly the same.
