Your Food Choices
We believe great care in our Taupō retirement village must come with great cuisine. Our menus are ever changing and filled with variety and color.
Monte Vista’s kitchens are always bustling to serve our residents with tasty culinary delights.
Our meal services have ticks in all the boxes; from ensuring the meals themselves are of high quality, prepared by qualified and experienced kitchen teams using premium recipes, to creating a dining atmosphere that you won’t want to leave, we’ve got it all.
Choice makes life interesting, and varied, and gives us opportunities to look forward to each and every day. We enjoy making choices in almost all areas of our lives – so we thought “why should dining be any different?”, and set about doing something different in our restaurant which would set us apart from almost every other residential care provider.
Take a look at the sample meals from one of our menus to satisfy your curiosity about what exactly is on offer.

Our Meal Services are made for you
We are very proud we go the extra mile with our dining services where we offer an off-the-menu choice of daily main meals. Having this choice of meals adds tremendous value to the everyday lives of our residents, and we simply can’t resist the opportunity to delight their taste buds.
Meal Service for no additional charge
Note that a choice of meals is not normally offered in residential care (or is a premium ‘added charge’ service if offered at all); however, we provide it as part of our standard service for no additional fee. In fact, we quietly hope that all aged care providers will catch on to this and do it for their clients one day.
