“That burger was just Devine!”
Reviewed 3 May 2014 via mobile

Dined for lunch today and loved the South western burger. Full of flavour and perfect amount of heat! Wife enjoyed the French toast with blueberries. There is a nice selection of refreshing mocktails. Will definitely be back soon

“Ate there twice”
Reviewed 24 April 2014

Had two lovely brunches at the Phoenix during our holiday in Tauranga. First day was quiet, and staff were very helpful. I had a delicious brunch, though my husband thought his was not as warm as he would like. The second visit was on an exceptionally busy day during the jazz festival and the staff were well organised for the expected crowd. We chose to sit inside and the music got turned up too loud, but was turned down when we requested.

“What is it with old tomatoes”
Reviewed 16 April 2014

We absolutely love the Phoenix calamari salad, but the last time we visited we were hit with the curse of the manky old tomato-get rid of them! Fresh is best.
