There weren't a lot of eating options in the village, and two of them were in the Chateau. We had a picky eater in our group, and most of the meals available at Ruapahu or Pihanga weren't something she would eat, so we were left with the restaurant at the Skotel or Tussocks. We chose Tussocks. It's very plain -- just a bar really with TVs and pool table. If it had been little warmer, sitting on the deck looking at the mountains/volcanos would have been nice. We shared a burger, a pizza, and seasoned wedges. Decent food if nothing special. For what it was, the food was fairly expensive ($17US for sandwiches and individual pizzas), but they have the luxury of charging what they want since there are so few options.
