Cafe Lacus is perfect for families. My kids loved the swings in the outdoor seating area, and I appreciated the kids' menu. It is a comfortable and enjoyable dining spot.

Cafe Lacus is a gem in Taupo. I had the seafood chowder, and it was heavenly. The interior is beautifully decorated, and the cabinet food looks stunning. It was a delightful discovery.

I was really looking forward to the restaurant and made a stop there on my bike tour. The place was not what I expected. The terrace had a view of a parking lot. There were no restrooms, but public restrooms could be used. The mediterranean bowl was one of the most expensive, but neither a decent portion nor tasty and not healthy either. It mainly consisted of very dry falafel balls and some bread. There was no question of a healthy bowl. There were hardly any vegetables or salad. It wasn't worth the money I paid for it and the taste was a disaster.
