Description: The Turangi Bridge Bar and Restaurant offers a stylish and welcoming atmosphere for sampling mouth-watering New Zealand cuisine. A Turangi icon since 1931, our restaurant has a genuine history and ambience unlike anywhere else. The large open fire makes it the perfect spot for a cosy, lodge-style winter dinner. Or in summer, you can sit on the deck to enjoy a glass of wine and a view of the Tongariro river and New Zealand landscape. The restaurant is also available for hire as your New Zealand wedding venue, conference venue or function room. We can cater to groups of different sizes with our buffet or a la carte options - please talk to us about what you need and we'll make sure you and your guests have a memorable evening. Please take a look at our seasonal menu - we have something to suit everyone's needs or budget.

Reviewed July 27, 2014

Great helpful service and that food was catered to deal with all our allergies. It was no problem for them to change the menu.

“A worthwhile visit”
Reviewed July 3, 2014

It's been three years or more since we last ate here. The staff are very friendly and the food is good with very large portions being served. Certainly much better than what it used to bee.

A friendly venue. I liked the help the staff gave by advising me when a better table became available. A varied menu and an enjoyable dinner.

“Atrocious Service”
Reviewed June 16, 2014

Although the food, once we got it was good, the service was awful. We were seated quickly by a gentleman who turned out to be our server. After bringing out our menus, we had to work hard to get him back to take our order. Then we had to get another waitress to bring our water and drinks. He just basically disappeared into the bar. After hunting him down to bring our food, we had to hunt him down again just to pay. Not a memorable evening.
