We thoroughly enjoyed our evening at Bistro Lago. Above all, it was peaceful, quiet and spacious so that we could converse easily. We would certainly return with pleasure.
Fantastic experience Wonderful staff and service Delighted
only minor negative was speed of service. People were waiting to order extra drinks, so could have sold us more. Apart from that minor issue - everything else was fantastic
Waiter was friendly and attentive. Lovely meal.
Great venue. Good service. Food came all at once. Mums 90th and they really looked after us. Fire going and the best table in the house.
Delicious meal here with excellent attention to detail. Would definitely come back again.
An excellent meal with very attentive staff. I came away feeling that I had received very good value for money
Music not so great. Service exceptional. Food very nice. Decor excellent too
Amazing staff, amazing service, amazing food! My partner and I really enjoyed the dining experience here. The food was superb. We will definitely be back!
Bistro Lago has such a wonderful setting & amazing views! Staff most attentive & meal was delicious!
Exceptional staff and exceptional food. Thank you all for an extremely delightful evening.
We were very disappointed with our meal, it was not of a high standard at all, we had to send one of our courses back, the atmosphere was also lacking quality and would not call this fine dining or outstanding dining at all and would not go back again.
Had a really lovely dinner at Bistro Lago today. The waiters were very friendly and attentive. Food was great! We were a bit guttered that we had unfortunately had too big of a lunch and could only handle a main and two entrees between us as we really wanted to try more things and dessert! We will definitely be back next time when we come back to Taupo and fully recommend the restaurant to others. Had a really yum virgin pina colada too, was not too sweet!
Thank you for a great evening.
Amazing restaurant and excellent food and service. We will be back!
Our Steak meal was divine!! We could not fault it! The flavours were outstanding. Delicious!
Excellent service and a nice atmosphere. Fish and chips to die for!
Very nice meal and lovely staff.
Thought we were going somewhere really special in Taupo for an anniversary dinner. The service was so shocking we ended up walking out. It took almost half an hour for someone to ask us if we would like to order any breads or entree. No one filled up our water glasses all night. We were left without any wine for ages. Once we ordered they forgot about our sides. We waited another 20mins after dinner plates collected for a dessert menu, it never came so we got up and left. It wasn't busy, there were hardly any customers, the staff weren't paying attention to the tables, took numerous attempts to get their attention. It put us both in a bad mood and I would not go back.
Excellent service and beautiful meal. Have dined here several times and will definitely return.
I love this restaurant! Elegant and chic, one of my favourite places to dine. Definitely always a very pleasant memorable experience. The cuisine is beautifully presented, although this time I felt it was a little over seasoned with salt. But that is a personal preference and a minor observation. I miss the white linen tablecloths though! And the toweling hand cloths in the ladies toilet!
Found it hard to get what you are trying to achieve here. Fine dining or casual eating. Pricing suggests the fine dining but with having the bar so close and rugby on it didn't work for the price paid. Waitress kept on apologising for interrupting us when she came past with was annoying but overall we enjoyed our night
