Our starter was over priced and microwaved. Mains were better but presentation needs some work. Dessert was yummy, espresso cheesecake, but again presentation was odd. This was also the only choice for the dessert options which was pretty poor.

We stopped on our way through. My wife had a nice crumbed prawn lunch. Avoid the mountain breakfast as it is too fatty and left to sit in the residue.

Stumbled across this little gem for lunch - loved everything! The soup, the eggs Benedict and the cake. It was so good that we ordered a second soup between us.

Found this by accident on our way to Lake Taupo. Welcoming staff, delicious lamb shanks in front of a real fire, and good value.

The best thing was service which was relatively quick and with a smile. Just another decent eatery. Has made to order and off the shelf stuff. we ordered Egg Benedict with Salmon, Veg Mac & Cheese and a filo. Decent portions served with acceptable taste.
