More than a Bistro

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

We had dinner there 2 days ago with my parents in law to celebrate their 51 wedding anniversary. Debbie, our host, was really kind and knowlegeable about the menu and the wine. The food was a pure delight. Crayfish, salmon and beef was cooked to perfection. The presentation was amazing. Deserts was devine. Adults and kids had a wonderful evening.... More

We found the serving staff personable and the steaks delicious. The pricing was a bit more than some of the downtown Mount Maunganui restaurants, but only slightly. Would definitely go there again.

We dropped into this restaurant in early evening and were treated to real a gourmet meal. The food was imaginative, well priced and beautifully served. There was a good selection of seafoods and award winning meats. The atmosphere in the early evening sunshine was lovely and as the light faded we enjoyed the intimate lighting. Staff were polite, efficient and... More

We booked into this restaurant for our anniversary dinner. We had a covered outdoor window table with a view of Mount Maunganui. During our meal we watched two Cruise Ships leave the harbour lights blazing. The restaurant was light with vine lights and lovely table LED lights lent a very romantic atmosphere to the scene. Our entree was flambeed at... More
