We were treated to a beautifully cooked entree - roast beetroot apple salad and soft shell crab. This was followed by both of us enjoying a lamb dish - again nicely presently and just as delightful as the first course. Dessert was also lovely -...More

Have been to the Mount Bistro a few times now and have enjoyed the meal every time. When we had the Degustation, each serving was like a piece of art. The lamb meal is superb and the beef is wonderful. The wine menu is very...More

Just returned from a visit to Mount Bistro where we were absolutely blown away with the food. We’ve eaten at some top notch restaurants but this was by far the best. The main surprise was that the place wasn’t more populated. The locals don’t know...More

I have eaten here several times when visiting family in the area. I have thoroughly enjoyed the whole dining experience on every occasion. Great food, and attentive, knowledgeable staff make the time spent here very pleasant indeed. And the location is great too

The manager who welcomed us was super arrogant, reminding us that “without reservation we were super lucky to get a table”. She behaved like this place has won multiple Michelin stars. So we expected superb food. The dinner was good but it did not match...More

A lovely location at Mount Maunganui for dinner. Staff were very attentive and even the owner chef came out to ask how our meal was. Meal was plentiful and lovely and reasonably priced. Wheelchair access was restricted as there was steps to outside area.

I have eaten at the Mount Bistro on several occasions when I have visited New Zealand and Stephen Barry’s restaurant has never disappointed me. The quality of the food has always been very good and the presentation of each dish is always eye-catching. The kitchen...More
