We had such an amazing dinning experience at Mount Bistro. All the courses were cooked perfectly. We specially enjoyed the chief added the sweet treats in our starters and mains. It was really special. Services were sweet! We got the special Valentine's presents even after the real date of Valentine's day. Definitely will come back for more special occassions. Highly...

We booked a table but when we arrived we waited in the doorway for ages and ages with waiters ignoring us. We waited ages for menus and then for a drink. When the food eventually came it was very nice, the flaming fish skewer a great success. What a pity they cannot organise the service side.

This is relaxed fine dining at reasonable prices. Food was amazing - I had the duck and my husband the lamb and both were cooked to perfection. We had the sharing plate dessert which we loved. Service was warm and friendly and not overpowering - very professional. We had a great evening and if ever we are back in Mount... More

We booked only 2 hours before we wanted to eat and pinched ourselves at the good fortune that had steered us to this gem. Chef Stephen flamed our seafood skewer at the table himself, the scallops, prawns, salmon and white fish could not have been more perfectly cooked. Follow this with lamb 3 ways and duck confit for our perfect... More

Has to be one of the best restaurants in the area. Looks very unassuming from the outside. Every course was perfect and the hostesses were very attentive with refilling our water glasses without being annoying. If you want fine dining at its best then this is the place to go. As we went with someone who had a birthday which... More

OMG what a find! Friends recently visited this place with the Food and Wine Society and raved about the food... imagine my surprise then to find it by accident a few days later. No where else in Tauranga that I know of can you have seafood of this quality, freshness and creativity for this price. Fantastic service, beautiful food and... More

Recommended by a local, we decided to take a risk on what looked a bit dodgy from the outside. What we experienced was absolutely great food and tremendous service. We will return.

Do not be put off by the understated frontage of this lovely restaurant. Actually it could do with a revamp ...... because the chef Stephen produces some beautifully creative dishes of food for the discerning. The menu is simple and explained well by the hostess. We had a beautiful dinner lamb for one and crayfish for the other and it... More

We visited Mount Bistro for a 9 course degustation dinner which was a gift from a family member. It did not disappoint. Would definitely go back to sample their a la carte menu. Staff very friendly and professional. Relaxed atmosphere, but elegant at the same time. Loved the fairy lights!
