The four of us had terrific service from the young waiting staff, who coped with our somewhat whacky sense of humour. for one young lass it was her first day on the job. These girls were polite, engaging and provided excellent service. It is the second time I have dined there with friends and we'll certainly go again.

The food was delicious and we didn't have to wait long before it arrived.

We arrived at Lakehouse to a warm welcoming atmosphere starting the evening with craft beer tasting and we were pleasently surprised very happy we proceeded with a tasting platter which was delightful the pork ribs are so delicious my partner decided she would have them for her main, everything was well presented and the staff were very attentive and lovely, I had the 200g scotch fillet on the stone grill for my main which was perfect the curly fries you can't go past, no room for desert. We thoroughly enjoyed Lake House and would highly recommend dinning here this would be our top pick for Taupo.

Our first experience with First Table, faultless :)

The lakehouse has a very warm and friendly atmosphere. Upon arrival, the staff were very welcoming and friendly. Our table was nicely set for us and the service was friendly and efficient. The manu had a good selection of dishes and it was interesting because ive never used a stone to cook my own steak at a restaurant before. We really enjoyed it. The meal sizes were generous, not to mention delicious, and also very reasonably priced! Thank you for having us.

Highly recommended.The service here was amazing. So obliging as a couple of us have Coeliac disease and nothing was a hassle for them with our diet. The food was fantastic from the fish which was salmon, the Lakehouse stone plate was delicious, the pizza tasty. Will definitely be back.

Great food in a casual setting! The lovely Scottish waitress was awesome. We had the sharing platter, a seafood chowder and a pizza between 3 of us. The seafood chowder was AMAZING! Definitely one of the best I've had. The platter was perfect in terms of the variety of food, and the portion sizes. Hubby and son shared the chocolate fondue for dessert - it was huge, and they totally loved it! Really looking forward to going back to The Lakehouse to try one of their hot-stone meals.

The moment we stepped into the restaurant, we felt so welcomed and was showed to our table. On the reserved table we can see that a handwritten board with my name one it and to me that was the special touch by them. They were busy the whole time, but always take special notice on our table and I must say, the customer service is just top notch. No balls were dropped even when there are only 2 staffs running the whole floor. The food was of good potion size and the kids were happy with their kid's meal. Lakehouse is a place I will be back and will recommend to my friends who are based out of town when they are here in Taupo. Well done to all in Lakehouse for making this dining experience such a wonderful and memorable one!

Arrived at 5:30 to find table set up. Waitress very attentive - menus given to us immediately. bottled water and glasses on table. Our drinks arrived promptly. Both of us ordered the Fish & Chips .... after about 20 minutes the food arrived - very hot so obviously freshly cooked! The meals were HUGE and could not fault anything. We will definitely be returning to this restaurant!.

Great little venue. The staff were right on point from entry to departure.
Great selection of craft beers, with taste glasses given before committing to a big glass.
The star of the show was the food. Does not matter how you cook it if you have not got quality product to start with.
Had a wonderful steak.
Well done all concerned

Fantastic dining experience. The restaurant has an upmarket pub feel, yet inviting for family dinners. The vibe is relaxed but the food and service was amazing.

This Restaurant is in a beautiful lakeside location, we were seated in a comfortable booth, and we appreciated that the music was turned down a tad when requested. Drinks were served promptly by the friendly staff. After giving us time to look over the menu our orders were taken: the dozen ribs (I didn’t want to wish I’d ordered more after eating 6 of them!), the sirloin hot plate, the prawn pizza, and a half serving of fish and chips. It wasn’t long until our meals were delivered, all arriving near the same time. We were all delighted with our meals. There were certainly more than a dozen ribs on my plate, and they allowed me to take the leftovers home. 2 double ribs didn’t make it home, I shared them with 2 street people. Even the fries were tops, lovely and hot, not greasy. My friend that ordered the hot plate was allowed a side of tomatoes even though they weren’t one if the options on the menu. Needless to say, that while the other 3 with me ate all on their plate, we were all too full to think of dessert. I would Definitely dine here again, and would recommend you try this restaurant for yourself.

This was our first time with First Table. When we arrived at Lakehouse our reserrved table was all laid up for us with our name posted which was a nice touch. We ordered the hot stone meals - one steak meal and one mixed meat taster. We had a selectionof sides, mushrooms, roast veg, etc and you get to choose a sauce too. The quality of everything was superb. Highly recommended!

The moment we walked in we were welcomed by the very friendly staff. The staff continued to be very helpful even though it was a busy evening, nothing was too much trouble. The food was great, we ordered the stone grill for our main and it was a very generous portions. It was nice to have a proper salad served with the steak. Overall a very pleasant dining experience. Highly recommended

Excellent service, friendly and fast. We shared the Camembert starter this was really good; hubby had the hot stone sirloin and was really impressed; I had the lamb shank which was good but nothing to rave about. Dessert was spectacular, we had the chocolate fondue and should really have 4 people sharing rather than 2! Great place, well be back, I want to sample their pizza

Lorraine Chave

Fabulously friendly from our arrival to our departure! Excellent cafe food and hubby kept us amused as he dealt with cooking his own steak on a sizzling platter [he doesn't cook!]...chowder was, I am told, just perfect! My shrimp/prawn dish was a chilli'd as I would want :-) and with our overseas visitors we shared bruschetta and a million laughs as we caught up: Our young waitress made sure, without 'being in our faces'...that all was as it should be and frankly we cannot fault the service - the food and the lovely friendly cafe atmosphere.....DO go visit!
