While visiting Lake Taupo, we had such a good meal, we came back the next night. Their steaks were done perfectly, all the sides and starters were excellent! We can't say enough about about the wonderful food, but also the great attentive staff they have! This is a sure hit of a great dinner in a casual dining atmosphere. You... More

Good location that is opened till quite late at night. Good steak and burgers as well as a extensive wine list to pair up with your meal. Waiter is very attentive and also well knowledgeable in making good recommendations. Price is mid point to expensive but worth a visit if you like a nice dinner.

We were in Taupo for the night and our usual eating place was closed so we decided to try the Steak House. Our waiter was Tucker, from North Carolina, who assured us that after talking to the chef that he could promise us a wonderful meal. He was not exaggerating, the meal was exquisite. Everything was so flavoursome that each... More

We visited this evening for a family outing on our last night in Taupo. The meal was incredible. The steak was delicious, well presented, fantastic service and I loced the dessert. The only reason for a 4 star instead of 5 is the cooking of steak is sous vide (cooked in plastic/vacuum seal in controlled temperatures) - It was fabulous... More

Recently, while visiting Taupo for the weekend, we decided to try out the meals in the Steak House. We arrived at about 7:30 on a Saturday Night, and the Restaurant was very busy. However, the Friendly Staff were soon able to find us a table that could seat the six of us. The Waitress was very Friendly and Helpful, and... More
