Been here a few times and the food never disappoints! Staff are friendly and even made my wife a cocktail which they don't usually serve :) One of the best in town without a doubt!

Visiting from Auckland for my husband's birthday weekend and based on TA review of #1 restaurant on Taupo I booked the Brantry for dinner last night. What a wonderful experience- the service was warm and professional, the ambience of sitting by the fire when we arrived for a pre-dinner drink, the beautiful glassware on the tables, and best part -...

This was such a quaint little place and just gorgeous. It's out of the way and unless you knew you were going there you would probably drive right past. I like that though. The place was just beautiful. The staff were great and helpful. The meals were affordable and amazing. Will definitely be back

We dined at The Brantry last weekend, the restaurant is located in a house in a side street off the main road. When we walked in the door we were greatly warmly, the staff were attentive and knowledgeable of the menu. It was three courses for $55.00 and the food was outstanding. Simply divine, highly recommended. Excellent value for money.... More

Restaurant is in an unassuming location in a residential area of Taupo. Food and service were outstanding and excellent value for money. I would recommend to other friends to dine here.
