10% discount on your bill at Lakehouse Taupo
Taupo's home of craft beer and superb food, Lakehouse Taupo offers beautiful lakefront views with a memorable dining experience.
Their menus range from full breakfast options through all-day dining with specialties including a fantastic range of pizzas, ribs, salads, burgers and casual choices.
A trip to Lakehouse wouldn't be complete without trying something from their "on the stone" menu - beef, lamb, chicken, seafood, salmon or vegetarian selections available. Add one of their sauces to your sizzling hot stone for a unique meal. My personal favourite? The salmon on the stone with red bell pepper sauce, matched with a locally crafted Lakeman pilsner or Parrotdog IPA.
