About Tongariro Lodge Restaurant
The dining experience in our restaurant captures the essence of the bold vibrant surroundings, serving the best of New Zealand game and traditional foods.
Food was excellent. The servers were quite inexperienced (although very nice) especially in respect to wine recommendations. Thank you chef for a delightful meal and Michelle for your great service.
Excellent, friendly and efficient service. Food is very high quality. Definitely worth going for that special occasion.
All reasonable but the service was a bit slow and my wife had a very tough gristly steak. First restaurant that adds credit card charges that I have come across. However, setting very pleasant.
Great food, great service, will be back
Lovely setting, would do more business if prices were more suited to the location
One of the very best meals we have enjoyed anywhere in the Taupō district over the past year. Three of us enjoyed excellent 3 coarses each. We will definitely return again in the very near future.
5 star restaurant and dinning experience in lovely garden and park-like surrounds. It has a very cosy ambience , service is impeccable and substantial sized meals with great plate presentation that are both delectable and sumptuous . Definately not an opportunity to be missed.
this is a five star restaurant with delicious food but gourmet servings ... so not good for mr hungry wanting big helping!! we had first table and loved it (except surely napkins can be planed on our laps when the food arrives not when we arrive?) we will come again with first table. helen
The service all around is lacking a bit. When one has to pour their own wine, get up an get water refill for the table AND the server forgets a drink order altogether, that‘s pretty bad. btw, all this happened with only two tables occupied in the restaurant. If you want to be known for your food, service needs to follow!
Joyes was a great host. Nothing was too much trouble. Fabulous.
Delightful place with true consideration for the amenities that make a stay special. Especially suited for fishermen/women and hikers. The dinner was excellent!
Beautiful surroundings, and very good food and service Thank you
Great staff and great food
Delicious food, great service.
A truly lovely dining experience, fabulous food, beautifully cooked and presented with a nice selection to choose from. The restaurant is immaculate, warm with a cozy atmosphere, the perfect end to a perfect day a such a beautiful setting. Breakfast was lovely too! I'm looking forward to coming back!
We had a family meal here. Kids meals great value at $15 including steak or fish as options and dessert. I had the pate and venison which was superb and really enjoyed it.
This was one of the most delicious three course dining experience we have had! Loved the atmosphere in the dining area, warm, cosy and very relaxing. The ravioli was top notch and the chef had such fantastic flavour combinations with the panacotta. The venison needed a little more jus as the meal started to feel dry, but the meat was perfectly cooked. Well done on a great service!!
Meals were fantastic we had three meals here and all were brilliant.
We brought our friends to Tongariro Lodge on our final night in Turangi as we had such a great experience here 5 years ago. The fire was blazing, the service wonderful and the food simply delicious. Thanks for a great night. Chris and Tony, Don and Fran.
We were there for a Family celebration. The restaurant was warm, welcoming and family focussed. ( 2 other families with young children present also.) Food was superb and the children’s menu had healthy choices. Fresh pan fried fish ! ( not deep fried!) Definitely recommend for special occasions.
Lovely warm atmosphere even with out two energetic children. Staff were patient and accommodating. Looking forward to coming again
