SIMPLY THE BEST

This is the first time I have been to Mount Bistro and I would have to say it was one of the very best dining experiences I have had. I could not fault the food or the service. Will definitely go back to this one and highly recommend this restaurant to all.

Had a grab one voucher given to me for my birthday. First experience was a 5/5. They asked the occasion and I said when booking it was my birthday. Excellent services couldn't fault the food at all. Steak was cooked to perfection. Chicken was tender also. Great selection. First experience was fantastic and I had heard so many good comments... More

We enjoyed a romantic dinner with great food and pleasant staff. Enough choices on the menu to cause a bit of deliberation when it came time to order. Would certainly go back again.

Drinks and the starter came reasonably quickly, though we noticed a table of seven people were still waiting for their main courses. We were just a couple waiting behind them in the order queue. One poor waitress trying to cope with a full restaurant and the kitchen obviously not able to keep up with orders. It took absolutely ages for... More

A great place for a special occasion. Four of us all had excellent meals. The chef came to each table later in the evening for a chat about your meal. A very nice touch. Sitting in the "outside" area on a summer evening was great. Will definitely go back.

Since moving to Tauranga it has taken us a long time to get around to Mount Bistro, for no particular reason, but the gap to the next visit will not take nearly so long. I began with the blue cheese cheesecake which was, unsurprisingly, strong in blue cheese flavour and delivered on texture as well as taste. This was followed... More

We chose this restaurant by walking past and seeing the menu, the many awards on the wall, the gorgeous fairy lights and lots of diners (always a good sign). We were quickly welcomed and asked if it was a special occasion. The menu was fully explained to us by a waitress who was obviously a professional, and well trained in... More
