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.

Delicious food in a casual atmosphere. We had fried oysters to start then several small plates: fried halloumi (cheese), pork dumplings, and black tiger prawns. Nice place to have dinner in Taupo.

While it has the initial feel of a pub, the food was excellent and service was friendly and efficient. We had John Dory which was served with a miscellany of mushrooms, some of which were crisp. They, together with the carrot purée, were delicious and...had me thinking about going back the next night. We tried The Vine instead. While its ambience is way better and the Pinot Nour recommendation was a delight, the food (eye fillet) was really ordinary. A small piece of dry and overcooked steak on top of a boulder of mashed potato sitting in a ju. They say #lovetaupo and there is much to like about it. Plateau is definitely one of those things.More

We visited this restaurant with friends for an evening meal and two of us were slightly disappointed. The other couple were not, they shared the small plates and had a very enjoyable eating experience. Two of us, however, had the steak meal and found the...steak to be of a slightly inferior quality and with quite a lot of fat or grizzle. The veg provided separately was lovely and we also enjoyed our cocktails and desserts very much. Two of us had the rhubarb dessert and I had the chocolate and coffee one. Our Gin based cocktails were very much appreciated. Not quite the good eating experience my husband and I have had previously so I think, next time, we would go back to the small plates and enjoy some of those. We did find, however, that the wait for meals was fairly long but the serving staff were very pleasant and very efficient once the food arrived.More

Went on a recommendation, service was poor, kept having to ask for water, drinks and plates to be removed. Place was not busy, staff just to busy talking. Squid so tough we couldn’t eat it, chicken was really dry, dumplings were very vinegary. Really disappointing....Ended up leaving and going somewhere else after paying a $300 bill.More

First time experience with my wife. dined here based off reviews and to be honest the reviews did not disappoint. Food was fantastic with flavors so well blended you felt like you were in a Michelin rated experience. it had a great mix and the...atmosphere felt private and personal. staff were great and they were busy so we were lucky to be seated without a booking. they did say that orders were 25 minutes behind schedule but the quality of the dishes were worth the wait. recommend booking asap when dining here. our total cost was $255 for 2 but it was well worth it.More

After reading all of the reviews this was a must do on our trip to Taupo and we were not disappointed. Staff were attentive and kind. We dined with other friends and we sampled a huge portion of the menu and could not fault anything....EVERYTHING was absolutely delicious and the sizes were all very generous!! My favourite dish would have been the tuna entree. We will be back thank you ☺️More

We dined here as a table of four on June 3rd. Two days prior to this we recalled that two in our group have hearing difficulties, so we emailed the restaurant asking if we could be seated at a quieter table. They rang us within...the hour, discussed the variables, and even suggested another local restaurant that might be quieter. This is not fine dining, but all four of us enjoyed every part of the evening (certainly added to by an absolutely amazing wait person). Wines were all very reasonably priced; our bill at the end of the evening was less than expected. And the noise was not a problem for our guests.More

I got my mum voucher for Mother’s Day and she just went for dinner with her friends and ordered main meal salmon. She received snapper instead and once she told the girl at the end of the meal the girl apologized and said there was...some misunderstanding and kitchen didn’t tell staff they finished salmon. They charged her full amount for a meal she ordered and doesn’t receive. Very disappointing and not how I wanted her to enjoy her Mother’s Day money. It would have been nice if they told her before serving them the meal! Very disappointing!More

From what remember there is a web site that offers 3 courses for about $32 dollars all from the same menu as normal but you must book for 6pm or 6.30 there are 2 to 4 meals available most days.
