 >> What's the best way of plotting this type of 3D data in Mathematica?

 If your data is nicely structured by being on all the x-y nodes of
 a (non-uniform) rectangular grid, you can use ListSurfacePlot3D from
 the Graphics3D package.

 If your data is more of just an irregular collection of x-y-z data
 then you have to use TriangularSurfacePlot, or use Fit to try to 
 approximate the data with some smooth function.

 Some details and examples are at
