Really yummy food. I really needed a scoop of ice cream with the chocolate pate but the waitress forgot to ask I think as you could have added it on I found out afterwards.Very rich. My fish needed a little bit more sauce with the rice but it was all very delicious. My pork belly entree was my favourite. Kids menu is good too my son really enjoyed his steak

Went there for dinner with my gf. Was an interesting arrival as the restaurant had been booked for a function; by the reaction of one of the staff members, our purchase was made before the function had been booked. So the staff did a fantastic job to make sure we were showed equal attention as well as managning the guests of the function. Staff were super friendly and helpful. Food here was top notch! Hats off to the chef. The mains aren't very big in size, but what they don't make up in size they make up in taste. The mudcake I had for dessert was fantastic.

Food was good, but we had to listen to workers having a long conversation with people they knew at a table near ours so that wasn’t fun. The place looked great though and staff were good too.

Sailing on Barbary to the Maori Rock Carvings was fantastic, although we didn't have the nicest weather, Barbary was a very smooth sail through Lake Taupo to the Maori Rock Carvings. Our captain, Sarah, was a skilled yachtsman who told us about the area and the boat. The Maori Carvings were beautiful to see and a must do if you are in the area. Thank you!

Do it! You won't regret it. It's a 19.4km hike across stunning backdrops and scenery. There's some tough parts like "the steps!" and challenging trying to walk down hill on sand. The rest is pretty easy ... It's truly amazing and the 6hrs just fly by.

The driver was fantastic. Full of information and a true local. I would definitely recommend this company. It's a small mini bus which is much nicer than the big buses.

Punctuate. Driver not just take you there, but would also give you good advice such as the weather condition, what to bring with and where you will find toilets. However, when one finished the 194Km and arrived the exit in Ketekihi carpark, prepared to walk further 1km out to get your car back there. That's quite tired.

I hesitatingly booked the shuttle one day before the departure due to weather conditions. it was so quite late night that I couldn't get any confirmation mail which included pick-up location. I went waiting at i-site in Lake Taupō worrying about what if the driver would have missed me. I called the office, explained my situation, and I could take the shuttle. The officer and the driver whose name is David were very kind and super friendly! Actually he dropped by my accommodation to pick other some passenger and me up! When we headed back from Tongariro National Park, the other bus driver—he didn't tell his name— offered us popsicles! What an awesome service! If you are looking for the shuttle from Taupo, I'd dare to say this one is the best. You don't need to worry about picks up. They will come pick you up at most accommodation in Taupo and Turangi. FYI, there are two buses for getting back to town, 2:30 p.m. and 4:00 p.m.

I don't have a car and that's why I used this service, but even if I had a car, I would use this service because that start of Tongariro alpine crossing is different with the end. The staffs of this service were quite nice people:) they expained about that course, and you can borrow the boots or poles for free if you need. After it,they provided ice creams☺ that was good ending of my day haha Tongariro is not too difficult but still not easy too. Especially when I went there, there was so strong wind. That's very dangerous, I concerned to going back down seriously but that was also difficult tobme so I decided to just go forward to survive. If you think it is too dangerous to keep going, just give up. That doesn't mean that you are a coward or so weak. Safety is the most important.
