Fodor's Expert Review The Bistro

$$$$ Taupo European Fodor's Choice
Jude Messenger, an award-winning young chef, aims for “simple but nice” at his unpretentious, family-owned eatery. Large cylindrical lamp shades brighten the modern interior, creating a contemporary bistro vibe. The food follows suit, focusing on what’s fresh and seasonal. Try the crackled pork belly with kūmara (sweet potato) and pickled red cabbage or the sweet corn cakes with roasted red-pepper sauce, either of which can be topped off with a selection of house-made sweets.
