“A nice surprise ”

The Lakeland Bar & Brasserie
Ranked #64 of 148 Restaurants in Taupo
Restaurant details
Reviewed 22 May 2018 via mobile

Normally we wouldn’t eat dinner where we stay and would go to a restaurant as the food should be better. However after reading other reviews we chose to eat at The Lakeland and we’re glad we did. My wife had the Roast Pork Loin and I had the lamb shanks and neither disappointed - delicious!
We finished off with a Creme Brûlée and it caped a wonderful meal at a very reasonable price. Our waiter was excellent and very helpful and courteous.
Totally recommend dining here if you want a good, unpretentious meal at a price less than you’d expect.

2 of us booked here for dinner.
Nice large area. Pleasant waiter.
Lemon chicken was good as was the pork loin.
Wine selection ok.
Bathrooms extremely clean as well.
I wouldn't rave about this place but I would return for a simple tasty meal.

We were pleasantly surprised at this little restaurant and the quality of the food served. They had a buffet style meal and the selection and quality of the meal was well worth the cost and we even went back for breakfast the next morning because we enjoyed it so much and this too was great. I highly recommend this establishment to anyone

We had the pork loin which was exceptional, followed by bannofee pie and an ice cream sundae. A very good meal.

To start, the location is beautiful, in front of the lake.
Staff is very nice and helpful.
The seafood was delicious! The seafood platter for entry is delicious and very big (enough for two people to share as an entry). And the seafood chowder was fantastic!
