Fodor's Expert Review Mount Bistro

$$$$ Tauranga New Zealand Fodor's Choice

The prices set this restaurant apart from other Mount Maunganui options, but then so does the chef and his menu. The street-side restaurant looks out onto Mauao (Mt. Maunganui). In the open-plan kitchen, nationally renowned chef Stephen Barry fuses indigenous ingredients with Pacific Rim flavors. From the à la carte menu, the appetizer of "Sword n Sauce-ry" (skewer of scallops, prawn tail, crayfish, salmon, fresh fish flambéed with horopito and lime vodka served with dipping sauces) is just one of Barry's standout, signature dishes. Menu choices range from small tapas to share, to medium appetizers to main courses and, for those who inevitably want a taste of all the desserts, there's a tasting platter. Reservations recommended.
