Something For Every Taste

Open Monday - Saturday From 6PM Call To Book 07 3867515


Welcome to the Parklands Motor Lodge Onsite Restaurant & Bar "Riverside Bar & Restaurant", one of Turangi's most popular places to dine. We offer a varied menu made with fresh produce to suit families, corporate groups, couples and those needing a hearty meal after a day out exploring our region. In addition to the good "honest food" offered in our menu, guests who are lucky enough to catch a local trout in one of our stunning rivers or in Lake Taupo, can have this culinary treat cooked for them on request. Room service breakfasts are available daily, with restaurant breakfasts and lunches for groups and conferences easily arranged.

Dinner is available from 6PM nightly, except Sundays, to guests and the general public.


Cosy and inviting, the Riverside Bar is a local favourite. Warmed in winter by a charming antique wood burner, it is the perfect spot to relax after a busy day on the mountain, lake or after exploring local activities. Chat to your hosts about Turangi activity ideas for groups, families or adventure seekers.
The bar offers patrons all SKY Television sports and specialises in local beers, an extensive range of reputable New Zealand provincial red and white wines.
