Taupō restaurants & bars

When you dine with us right in the heart of this place, you taste the premium ingredients, are in awe of the magnificent landscapes and enjoy the culinary creativity of the local talent. Dine indoors by a crackling log fire in the winter or enjoy a glass of wine alfresco with stunning views across the lake. 

Taupō boasts an extensive selection of family-friendly restaurants, lakeside bars, award-winning fine dining and vibrant eateries that continue to grow each year.

Family-friendly does mean you miss out on tasty food and the amazing scenery that the Taupō region is known for. The wide range of family-friendly restaurants like Dixie Browns ensure everyone enjoys a delicious meal accompanied by incredible lakefront outlooks. At Two Mile Bay Sailing Club, you and your family cannot get any closer to the shores of Lake Taupō. Right on Lake Taupō, you can enjoy some of the best wood-fired pizzas & beautiful lake views while the children enjoy a swim.

It's no surprise that the region is at the forefront of fine dining with innovative menus showcasing fresh local ingredients, contemporary culinary techniques, and craft drink offerings. Vine Eatery & Bar is a favourite for both locals and visitors, boasting a fusion of Mediterranean tapas and New Zealand fine dining paired with their cozy ambiance and carefully curated drink list.

The elegant Plateau Bar & Eatery ensures each plate reflects seasonal offerings and contemporary cuisine. The Brantry Eatery is a staple in the Taupō dining scene, situated in a refurbished home with a fresh menu and captivating art gallery.

A testament to the Taupō dining scene is its newest addition, Embra, offering a degustation menu and exquisite hospitality that rivals Michelin-star restaurants abroad.
