Taupo restaurants & bars

Dine indoors by a crackling log fire or enjoy a glass of wine alfresco with stunning views across the lake. Taupo boasts an extensive selection of family-friendly restaurants, lakeside bars, award-winning fine dining and vibrant eateries.

The region is at the forefront of dining with innovative menus showcasing fresh local ingredients. Enjoy locally produced Taupo beef and lamb, which has been produced in a way that verifiably preserves the water quality of Lake Taupo.

Sample mouth-watering slow cooked southern US-style meats washed down with a locally brewed craft beer at SMK Southern Meat Kitchen, or share a Mediterranean style platter with a group of friends at Vine Eatery & Bar or one of the other inviting local eateries.

For that special occasion you can't go past The Bistro, recently nominated in the top 100 New Zealand restaurants by Metro Magazine, and The Lodge at Kinloch Club where all cuisine is sourced from the private 2000ha owners estate adhering to the 'estate to plate' organic philosophy.
