About Pavilion Restaurant, Wairakei Resort Taupo

With a wood ceiling and an open-plan layout, the Pavilion Restaurant provides a relaxed ambience for a buffet breakfast as well as à la carte evening bistro dining. The chefs view cooking as a challenge and blend International and New Zealand cuisine with locally sourced produce, such as salmon from Marlborough Sound, grass-fed beef from Northland and herbs from sustainable farms. They deliver tantalizing dishes alongside popular seasonal buffets every weekend. You can pair dinner with New Zealand wines before treating yourself to tempting desserts using fruit grown in the rich soil of the central North Island. On Saturdays, there is a themed buffet, while the Sunday roast is a favourite with the locals.

Food was divine - especially loved the tomato coconut soup and the Whittakers Rocky Road. Why don't you run a cooking class late afternoon on a Saturday so we can learn how to make them. I would pay to come to such a class!

As first time guests, we entered intrigued at the huge open dining area. A great first sign is beautifully clean bathrooms. We were welcomed by attentive, friendly staff who all took extra care of our toddler and gave us the choice of where we would like to sit. At first glance, the menu was simple and interesting and surprisingly great prices. We ordered a selection of starters to share ... loaded fries, aracini mozzarella balls, cheesy fig bread, duck spring rolls and the standout dish pork belly w fennel and orange. All of our food arrived in swift time, everything was fresh and hot...all dishes had a garnish of suited salad and sauce. Absolutely delicious!! Highly recommend ☺️ Will definitely be returning!

Too loud, seated directly next to several family groups despite the restaurant only being 20% full, food was ok but did not seem fresh

My wife and I thought we'd pop in for a birthday celebration dinner and we were pleasantly surprised with what we experienced. From the time of entry and through to the end of our experience, the service was exemplary and the food was amazing. Well done to each and every one of you, both front line and behind the scenes. We'll be back and we will certainly recommend you to all!
