Had a great time at Amphora. The food was really good, however, it did take over an hour to come out of the kitchen (we went straight to main meals). Good value for money.

Amphora embodies all that's great about The Strand in Tauranga. Outdoor dining in the courtyard looking out over the water, or in the colourful, warm, Italian-inspired interior which is the perfect spot for a long, intimate candlelight dinner for two or a large party of friends having a celebration meal. There is a warm ambiance creating a relaxed atmosphere here - perfect to enjoy a glass or two of wine before dinner and take your time choosing which of the delicious dishes you will order. The Italian/Mediterranean-inspired food is wholesome and the chefs at Amphora buy in-season from local suppliers, with a focus on freshness and quality of ingredients. We have a good range of gluten free on offer and if you have a special request due to dietary requirements just ask and we will do our best to cater to your requirements. Amphora On The Strand is family owned and run, with more than 30 years restaurant experience, giving personalised service. Amphora is fully licensed as well as B.Y.O. If you would like to make a group booking for lunch we will open specially for groups of 10 or more. Call us to help arrange all sorts of celebrations such as birthday parties, work do's or small weddings at Amphora. We will help you celebrate at the restaurant catering to your individual needs, or we can arrange out-catering for your party if you wish, in your own home or venue.
