On an overnight stop in Taupo, we dropped in for a quick dinner. Very impressed at the quality and quantity. Extensive menu and reasonable prices. Our waitress Mim also did a great job looking after us. Defineately a place to dine when in Taupo.

Good food, great views. Outdoor seating available. Ideal for a stopover, there's a bit to walk around the waterfront and also some shops.

Visited with my wife and 11 year old son. Made a reservation a few weeks out as I'd heard that it could get busy, especially on a weekend. This proved to be a good thing as the restaurant was already packed out when we arrived at 6.30pm on a sunny Saturday evening. Nice atmosphere and certainly a family friendly place... More

Popped in here for a light dinner and the staff couldn't have been more welcoming, clearing a reserved table for us. The menu was appealing and the food we ordered was delightful (cajun chicken salad was great!). The service was great and although a little pricier than the place next door, our visit was well worth it.

Great food and service. We visited on a trip to Taupo, first time in NZ. Very impressed with food quality as we were all throughout NZ.

Great place to stop and everyone else stops here to so has to be the best choice on the front. Lots of inside seating and plenty more outside and even over the road we noticed. Wheelchair friendly and staff great and food terrific.

This is the second time we have been here and our dinner was a main course each no entrée or desert and the bill was $75. A bit too pricey we thought for a family type restaurant. The food was very good though so no complaints there. Our ypung staff member needed some more training in so far as knowing... More

Enjoyed a fantastic meal on our last night in Taupo. Had a table outside on a lovely evening so could see the sun setting as we dined. We started with a shrimp cocktail and some calamari- both delicious. Mains were steak and rib platter (yum), mushroom and cheddar melt burger (massive) and a yummy pizza. All meals filling, tasty and... More

We were recommended Dixie's by our motel but we're pretty disappointed. There were heaps of staff and the place wasn't really busy but things seemed really slow, although there were a few staff hanging around by our table I had to ask for a wine list 3 times and then had to call the waiter over again to order after...

Visit anytime of the day, the food and atmosphere is pretty good. Generous servings, fresh food and a view of the famous Lake Taupo itself. Going in for brunch.. Treat yourself to an iced coffee, you'll be glad you did.
