I had a horrible experience at a neighboring restaurant down the road and was charged for food that was inedible so still being hungry, my boyfriend and I found Dixie Browns. All I can say is thank goodness. After being treated so rudely at the other place, walking in to this restaurant was a breath of fresh air. The staff... More

Went for breakfast. Must have had 4-5 tables being served, therefore wasn't busy at all and they were overstaffed. We specifically asked for our coffee served with the meal but clearly the waitress was still half alseep because we had to literally yell at the counter a few times to break the happy-chappy conversation that was going on between the...

Recommended by our hotel ( Lake Taupo Motor Inn) we were given a voucher for two free glasses of wine with any main meal ordered. I'm a Ribs lover, the best I had was over 20 years ago, nothing has ever compared. Well these ribs were to die for. A new sauce had just been created( so I was advised... More

Their chicken curry (ask for hot) is brilliant. Possibly one of the best curries in the country. A great curry paired with a delicious rice.

We got a table for two without reservation. The restaurante was full but the staff was friendly and fast, a little bit to fast. ;) I orderd the original Dixie Brown's Burger and the garlic rosemary bread with feta. My boyfriend had the prime rib ( medium ) and the garlic bread. It was so delicious!! At the end we... More

We chose this café at random, having just arrived into Taupo. As we ordered our meals the staff were very accommodating and were able to cater for my wife with dietary needs - they did exactly what she wanted grilling a chicken fillet with steamed veggies, and chips. the rest of our group enjoyed the rest of the menu with...

We went on a Sunday for a late lunch and we all had a nice meal. I had the ladies rump steak, which was very tasty and cooked just how I asked. The chips and veg were also very nice. My husband had the mushroom melt burger which he said was very nice also. Service was good also

I had picked this place out after sifting through eateries on trip advisor and boy we were not disappointed. Very busy and thought we may have to wait a while for service and food. Not so - a young lady came and brought menues and took orders . We had a cocktail ( Moscow mule ) and a beer -... More
