Great Night

Our dining experience at Waterside was awesome. The restaurant was cosy and warm on a very wet and cold night and the atmosphere was great. The service was great too with a very friendly waiter. The meals were enjoyed by everyone especially the fush and chips and lamb rump. If you don't enjoy 'rare' meat remember to ask for the rump to be cooked a little more than usual. An all round special evening celebrating with friends.

Great dinner!

Four of us had a great meal. Delicious starters, lovely mains. Served in good time and hot. Cocktails were amazing too. Don’t let the road works put you off. Take time to walk around the corner and find this great place. Views of Lake Taupo and the sunset to boot.

Promised so much but not met

Was really looking forward to an early dinner before hot pools. Only 3 tables occupied. Waiter not interested in being there. We ordered our meal (waterside sharing platter) quickly. 35 minutes later I approached the waiter to tell him that we were booked for the hot pools at 7pm (55 minutes time). He responded with "and". I then had to tap my watch to explain my point. Service was very slow taking into account only 3 tables in use. Parts of the Platter were tasty but other parts not so. The squid very bland and the fish bites tasted like they had been fried in old oil We weren't able to order desert due to the lack of time, so weren't able to fully utilize the voucher. Kept getting swooped by 2 sparrows that had become locked inside. He made no attempt to free them or shift our table so we were out of the flight zone

Had the potential to be a lot better

The construction work outside has nothing to do with the review. Antipasto platter was very average, some of the cured meat on it was dry and curling at the edges. Mains were good. Dessert very strange🪴? Waiter bordering on slightly rude at times. Had the potential to be a lovely meal all up.
