The Lake Taupo region offers an impressive range of dining experiences, from the sophisticated restaurants of major hotels and motor inns to highly individualistic eateries in memorable places. There is even a geothermal prawn farm with a restaurant attached.
For a quick bite, there are many cafes ready to tempt visitors with excellent espresso and home made specialties. For a more serious kind of meal, visitors are spoilt for choice.
Most restaurants and bars are located in the Taupo central business district, but Turangi also has a good selection. If visitors catch a trout, they can confidently ask one of the local restaurants to prepare and cook it.
