We had a family dinner here to celebrate an anniversary. We had quite a large party and we were accommodated in the front covered area which was beautifully decorated, together with fairy lights overlooking the front garden. While the others enjoyed their meal, I was...a little disappointed in my meal, primarily due to the use of coriander in many of the dishes I chose. I tried the new 'Apricot' dessert on the recommendation of the wait staff; I found the cake portion of this quite bland with no flavour. I did however try the chocolate dessert that the others chose, which was absolutely delicious and I will opt for this when we come back next :)More

The Brantry is a Taupo Must Do, and this time did not disappoint. My Fillet Mignon Steak was cooked to perfection, and my French Fries soaked up the Wine Jus perfectly. The Service is on point, and the staff are super friendly and attentive. We...just love going to the Brantry.More

One of the best meals I've had at any restaurant. Every course was exceptional. Would definitely recommend the lamb, generous portion, beautiful flavours and cooked to perfection. Set menu at a really reasonable price.

Had a very pleasant meal, with competent service and comfortable seating. Our meal was good, but maybe not as fantastic as the last time we dined here some years ago. The restaurant has survived for a long time which is a testimony to its performance....We ate in the extension which was light and airy, so very pleasant.More

The Brantry was a top find in Taupo. Plan for a long evening soaking in the opulence, art, beautiful roaring fire, fine wine selection and of course delicious cuisine

Loved it. The food was delicious, fresh, well prepared and elegant. Serving sizes perfect. Baxter was a wonderful host, helped with the food and wine match when asked; very friendly staff in a lovely atmosphere with the art a plus. One thing I would change...- needed more time between courses would have been nice one followed the other within 10 minutes. Best meal we had in Taupo by a mile - we will be back.More

W went there to have dinner. Don’t get me wrong that it is a nice restaurant but that’s all. The portions are really small according the price we paid. Will try again sometimes.
