Came here with a group of 10. Last minute booking but no trouble here! All got the $55 for three courses. Delicious food and good ambiance. Perfect for a large group who want to have a good chat over dinner!

The ambiance of this Restaurant was accentuated by the personal service given by the wait staff, despite it being a very busy service. The Menu offered something for everyone, and the Wine List complimented the Meal Options perfectly. We left feeling well fed, well looked after, and extremely spoiled. Awesome Restaurant that never fails to live up to it's promises.

Loved the Brantry. Located off the main streets in an older, converted house with character and warmth. The food was artfully prepared with well chosen seasonings. I wish I had another day in Taupo to eat here again!
