I can not fault this dining experience. everything was perfect! From my scotch fillet being beautifully cooked, to my vanilla and white chocolate brulee being the best thing I have ever eaten, to my wine being delicious. The restaurant deserves all the praise and awards! The night was the perfect mix of noise and quiet. I cannot convey my appreciation... More

The steak is the best one I have eaten for a long time. The meat is great and perfectly fried. It was a great dinner and so nice that we even forgot to take a picture. It's also a nice area close to the sea so we went on a short walk after the dinner.

Had a great meal here with my hubby, steak of course. Great atmosphere and friendly and efficient staff. The desserts looked lovely but we were unfortunately too full.

A group of friends had a dinner at this restaurant. Friendly service. A wide range of craft beer as well as wine. Bluff oysters could with steak was part excellent. A bit on expensive side. Considering the quantity and quality, that's fine. Overall experience was awesome.

With ample food establishments to choose from in this great little town I always go to Taupo Township rather than drive by using the bypass road. It’s something about being the half-way point on a car journey from Auckland to Wellington – time to stretch the legs, a comfort stop and of course dinning. The Steak House is on the... More

We can't say enough about about the wonderful food, but also the great attentive staff they have! This is a sure hit of a great dinner in a casual dining atmosphere. You... More
