Had a visit from my sister and we went for dinner there. It was very enjoyable, the meal was scrummy and the wine was a perfect match. The restaurant was very well setup.

The meal was very well presented and was of a good size. It was value for money with a good selection of choice The only thing of note was the waitress did not know what I was wanting when I ordered a liqueur coffee and wanted Drambuie in it

Probably the best meal my wife and I have had in the many years we have travelled to Taupo and Turangi . Dinner was superb . Lamb cutlets were tantalisingly meaty - really tender . My wife's orange roughy was fresh and fleshy . The meals were generous - the prices more than reasonable . Why we were the only... More

Atmosphere of the restaurant is superb. Nice and quite, allows you to talk to your friends over the table and actually get heard. Food is great and service is brilliant. Grab a glass of wine or beer on your way in at the bar. Entrees served just in the right time and your mains are served once you finish with... More

i visited twice for dinner with locals who eat here regularly. this made for a very welcoming atmosphere. we ate in the tv-foyer-bar area at the few tables/sofas here, instead of the restaurant proper. mid-range price, classic kiwi restaurant fare, there was rugby on the big screen and locals all talking together at the bar and tables including the staff.

We had an excellent meal, and a charming waitress. My panko crumbed orange roughy was exceptional, and my husband enjoyed a huge t-bone steak..

We found this restaurant by luck, as we were driving around Turangi looking for a place for our dinner. By taking a wrong turning we discovered the Turing Motor Lodge and decided to try their restaurant. What a good decision as the dining room was pleasantly busy and was well furnished with good table spacing. We chose the fish &... More
