Agree with other reviewers that this is an underrated gem. Many meatless options, which are hard to find in Taupo. Staff excellent, and the restaurant is lovely

Nice atmosphere with a lot of people and (a bit too high) music playing. Large selection of beer, food was ok but a bit greasy (sample platter). Service below average.
