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.

Great Sunday night roast. Everything was superb. Only thing on the downside, the place is very dark. More lighting would lift the atmosphere.

Absolutely the best, most delicious meal I have ever had Atmosphere, cleanliness, plenty of food and choice. Comfortable seating with lots of room between tables. Staff were very friendly and professional. Welcomed, picked up used plates, thanked for attending and swift payment of bill.

Great buffet - really nice selection of food. Rather busy and loud as it was a sat night but that’s what you would expect. Dishes were refilled promptly and service was very good. A cheese selection would be the icing on the cake.
