Reviews

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

Excellent service despite it being a busy night. Large portions. With the noise of the other diners and the big screen TV it would have been nice if the music could have been turned down as it was hard to have a conversation. Otherwise a great place to dine.

Although there were other very rowdy guests, our request to move tables was not a problem. The food was fabulous and would highly recommend the platter. Great value and excellent variety. We loved the option of ordering a jug of cider and an extra scoop of ice cream to the gluten free brownie was no trouble. We were very well looked after by the friendly waitresses and would definitely dine again - especially in the summer where you can sit outside looking towards the beautiful lake. Top job Lakehouse.

Casual and easygoing dining. They had set a table aside for us which was awesome. Loved the friendly service. We got the salt and pepper squid, full size seafood chowder, nachos, kid’s burgers and drinks. Food came out quick and was yummy. Kids enjoyed their sundaes topped with treats. Husband said his dark beer was good. Great place for a young family with restless kids - noise from all the chatter around us hid our noise too! Thanks for a good evening.

Excellent dining experience! We were a group of four including two friends from Australia. They absolutely loved the whole experience. The sharing platter is the perfect entree for 2-4 people. I am vegetarian and I still had great options in it.
The stone grills were amazing. We had the tasting plate, lamb rump and a vege stack. Cannot fault it. In fact it was great! My Australian friends were so impressed with the taste and quality of food along with the great service. We would like to commend the bartender (I think he is Krishant). Would always go there when we are in Taupo

I had the fish of the day, Salmon, I was not asked how I wanted it cooked It came slightly over cooked with the skin side down which was very soggy and oily, I could taste the oil it was cooked in. The broccoli was under cooked and bland, chips very ordinary. My partner had the Lamb Shanks, the jus was nice with the mashed potato but one lamb shank was tough and dry whilst the other okay.

waitress was new and brought out mains with entrees. Then a more experienced waitress asked us if we had asked to have our entrees served separately from our mains. In other experiences, I have never had to ask for my entree to be brought out before my mains. Food was scrumptious and fair prices.

Lakehouse has a huge range of beer and cider. The cocktails are also alright! (Raw peanuts on the snickers cocktail should be replaced by roasted ones though)
Camembert balls as a starter were delicious, and our tacos were piled high with filling - more than we could manage to eat so we definitely didn’t leave hungry! Service was very friendly if a bit sporadic. Hopefully smoking at the outside tables will be cut off soon, a face full of smoke doesn’t improve anything.
Great view of the lake and a pleasant, casual place for dinner.

Lake house staff were amazing! Great conversation and level of service. Arrived and our table was set for inside where we preferred outside - this was not a problem and the staff efficiently moved our table for us. Drink advice was on point and were brought in good time. We shared a heap of platters and the food was fantastic. The Nachos, Camembert bites and Bruchetta was by far the best, we got double rounds!
Would be back without a doubt! great location, great staff and great food!
