We enjoyed a relaxing lunch sitting outdoors overlooking the beautiful lake. The staff were helpful and friendly. The fish of the day was Snapper and it was fresh and was served with chips and fresh micogreens and amazing preserved lemons which were delicious. The bacon sandwich was also great. Unfortunately after taking our coffee order the waiter returned to inform... More

This is one of my favourite places to eat when Taupo is overrun by visitors - it also has one of the best unimpeded views in town! Known as Beach 243 it is a great "go to" for lunch if you want to gaze at the lake. It is often all but deserted, possibly because most people think it will... More

Lunch for an anniversary with a good friend. Asked for a table by the fire ( adjacent to the dinning room ) with a great view of the lake. Arrived to find the table arranged and the fire looking very inviting on a cold afternoon. Asked to move the table a little and nothing too much trouble. Service was good... More

the buffet version of the Edgewater restaurant in Manuels hotel that is normally available only at lunchtime, except during the holidays. We were well looked after by waiting staff, several of whom had served us on New Year's eve, who took our orders for our choice of meat / fish, but left diners to help themselves to a variety of...

Keeping in line with the rest of the Hotel, this Cafe provided good service along with good menu and quality food. Lovely position right on lake edge and quiet away from traffic

One of the few truly lake-side dining venues in Taupo. Out side seating for lunch or dinner in the summer offers great views of the lake. Food is good without being " great ".... but the setting, helpful staff, decent wine list make this place worth a visit. Especially if the weather is benign enough for outdoor dining.

Went there for a birthday lunch. My lunch of the beef salad was good but my husband had the tandoori chicken. He sent it back because if was cold, it was returned and it was still cold. Not good enough for a restaurant of this type. He had the soup in the end which was hot. To begin with I... More
