The Cyprus Tree closed over a year ago in fact cannot answer following questions properly as the building no longer on site, did not go for breakfast and July 2013 the building was no longer there.

Very nice staff, awesome location , outstanding mediterian dishes. In summer you need to book a table to avoid disappointment

This place is closed. I asked a local, he said they had closed down. It's a shame because the food sounded good.

We ate at the Cyprus Tree both nights we stayed in Tairua in December (think its the only restaurant open on a Monday night). The food was lovely both nights, particularly the steak on blue cheese risotto. The staff were friendly and our table had a lovely view. I would definitely recommend!

My boyfriend and I went here because we heard about their amazing pizza. We did not regret it! Be sure to taste the pizza called "the Coz"! I´m not exaggerating when I´m saying; it´s the best pizza I´ve ever had! The service is good too! We will be back!

My wife and I were in NZ for our honeymoon and we spent a few nights in Tairua. Our favorite place that we ate was the Cyprus Tree. The food was excellent, masterfully prepared and designed, and we felt like we were the only people there even though it was mostly full. We did not have a reservation, but were... More
