OMG what a find! Friends recently visited this place with the Food and Wine Society and raved about the food... imagine my surprise then to find it by accident a few days later. No where else in Tauranga that I know of can you have seafood of this quality, freshness and creativity for this price. Fantastic service, beautiful food and... More

Recommended by a local, we decided to take a risk on what looked a bit dodgy from the outside. What we experienced was absolutely great food and tremendous service. We will return.

Do not be put off by the understated frontage of this lovely restaurant. Actually it could do with a revamp ...... because the chef Stephen produces some beautifully creative dishes of food for the discerning. The menu is simple and explained well by the hostess. We had a beautiful dinner lamb for one and crayfish for the other and it... More

We visited Mount Bistro for a 9 course degustation dinner which was a gift from a family member. It did not disappoint. Would definitely go back to sample their a la carte menu. Staff very friendly and professional. Relaxed atmosphere, but elegant at the same time. Loved the fairy lights!

We were a group of 6 ladies, a tough crowd, to start with! I would have given them 4.5 if I could. We were there for their degustation, which was excellent, apart from a couple of little things. The beef cheeks was very fatty and the medallion slightly tough. Overall, a really good degustation and an enjoyable evening. Would definitely... More

We arrived at Calais Resort, Mt. Maunganui ( The restaurant in the same building) after 6 pm and went to Mount Bistro for dinner. The place was almost empty, and my husband said: " it is a bad sign, don't you think?" We were so tired after a long drive from Auckland and just did't want to go and explore... More

Took the family for a dinner here. A great success! Between the 6 of us we covered a fair bit of the menu and not one dish disappointed! We all had great food and great service! As it was all 3 of my sons birthdays, they were given a treat of macaroons and a chocolate birthday message each, which they... More
