Loved our lunch lovely staff
Food came out quite fast with minimal time between courses. Breads coming out at same time as entree seemed a bit odd. Took longer for our drinks to come than our entree and breads despite ordering earlier.
I gave only 4 stars for food and drink as I ordered an orange juice but due to too much ice, it was very watered down. Apart from that, the food was delicious. 😊
We like the atmosphere, the service was excellent as usual. We enjoyed our entrees but we weren't convinced on our mains. We look forward to trying other meals on the menu though.
Thanks for a wonderful evening and dinner friendly helpful staff lovely atmosphere we were celebrating our 44th wedding anniversary with our daughter and son inlaw
Thank you - beautiful food
Steak was a little undercooked and 3 scallops for $30 is quite expensive!
A lovely evening, excellent friendly service. Superb food and adequate wine list. Husbands steak was cooked perfectly and as it was his birthday he was surprised with a birthday macaroon. Prices were what one would expect at this level.
Excellent food and service. Does not disappoint.
A little cold. So we had to put on our jackets to stay warm
High quality restaurant- great view, historic building in a modern hotel- wonderful food. Highly recommended
Always a great dining experience!
On the 5th of March my husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our evening out at Bistro Lago. A lovely salmon meal, wonderful service and fabulous views of the lake and mountain.
My friends & I had a wonderful time at Bisro Lago, food was scrumptious, was hard to know what to choose. Am definitely going to have the Pork Belly next time! Desserts were divine. With friendly & attentive staff it all added to a very enjoyable night. Good friend, good food, good wine - what more could you ask for! So pleased Bistro Lago are also part of First Table :-)
Great atmosphere and service. There was a little mixup with the water but they were happy to take this off the bill. Food was delicious. Highly recommended
Excellent food - good recommendations by the head-waiter.
Strange that we were encouraged to book at a later time when there were only 10 guests dining at the time we requested
We love coming to the Bistro Lago, easily one of our favourite restaurants in Taupo. Always exceptional and friendly service, wonderful food (the salmon entree was soooo yummy!) and views to die for.
We had a nice dinner thank you
lovely food and wonderful service thank you to the team at bistro lago for making our holiday great
The best beef tartare I have ever had! The wine list was amazing, the best selection I have ever seen. Thoroughly enjoyed our experience here and would definitely recommend to others, will be visiting again.
Amazing Good, definitely recommend the duck.
Exquisite atmosphere, delicious cocktails, tasty food and lovely service.
There was no service, we had to ask the waitress to order food and wine, to top up our water, to order another drink, to clear unwanted cutlery, and after a very expensive but dry and disappointing meal that we left, the staff didn’t even clear our plates away. We finally left the table with the dirty plates still sitting there. A very disappointing and hugely expensive evening.
