Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

We circled back to Dine Taupo after walking the strip of restaurants and were so happy we did as the food was delicious with awesome service to boot. Really enjoyed the caesar salad with prawns and the hot plate brownie for desert. We've been eating...out for a solid week now and was so, so happy to have good food and good service for a change. Some restaurants in Taupo are below par and the young lady who served us restored our faith in service as it should be. Thank you again for a great experience at your restaurant.More

We had great service and food the evening we visited Dine. Our waitress was attentive and the food was delicious. My steak was cooked perfectly and so was my sisters pork belly. The pumpkin soup is one of the best I've tried out and the...cocktails were tasty and affordable. Nice chill vibes in the restaurant too. Would definitely visit again.More

A quiet Sunday night. Great service and lovely meal. Even though road works are happening outside their restaurant it’s worth the walk around. Vegetables were cooked perfectly and the flavours tasty.

It's been a few months since I was in Taupo, but I vividly remember the excellent service we got from the owner of Dine, Jane. She was not intrusive, but made sure we had all we needed. As it was a little quiet that night,...I was able to ask her about her extensive knowledge of horses! She was lovely to talk to, and we were glad we did! All round everything was just perfect ; the service, conversation, atmosphere and stunning views accompanied by sumptuous food! You couldn't ask for more! Thank you Jane! You made a very pleasant and memorable evening. We will come again and again!More
