About Harbourside Tauranga
Enjoy stylish waterfront dining, exquisite cuisine & fantastic service.
At Harbourside, we serve modern fine dining dishes alongside a warm and unpretentious atmosphere. The ganache on the cake, you might say, is our stunning waterfront location. As you dine, you’ll take in views across the blue expanse of Tauranga harbour.
We believe there are no short cuts to sensational food. The journey to your plate and palate begins with sourcing only the finest, freshest ingredients (organic and local are given special priority) and continues with artisanal preparation. We believe, simply, in marrying exquisite flavours and letting them sing.
We treat our guests like family at Harbourside and welcoming you to Harbourside will be Owner-Managers (husband and wife team) Peter and Anita Ward, their son Cameron Ward running the kitchen and a passionate team of service and cuisine professionals we have been fortunate to attract.
We look forward to having you with us at Harbourside.

You’ll find us at the southern end of The Strand, right beside the old Railway Bridge on the waterfront.

Harbourside Restaurant consistently delivers beautiful food in a tranquil setting and with genuine, friendly service
We had a lovely long late lunch for 8. There was no rush to get us out, the food was fantastic and service professional.
Great to be back again - love this restaurant💓
A very BIG thank you for a gorgeous lunch to celebrate my Mother-in-laws 70th birthday. Nicole is amazing and was so lovely helping me organise the private room. Our waitress was kind and took really great care of us. The food as expected did not disappoint! Thank you to you all for a lovely special time. Best wishes Katie
Delicious food and excellent service. Good gluten free options. Great wine list. Thank you!
A great meal as we have come to expect, however it seems to be a long time since the menu changed.
Great food, friendly staff. Feel good atmosphere 👍🏻
Husband said ‘food was [email protected] magic’ . Camille was a wonderful waitress. We were a table of 8 and don’t have a single complaint. Good portions. Still raving about the food today
Dined here for dinner the other night. Has good atmosphere being by the water, food was amazing and drinks were delicious. Would definitely recommend to anyone!
Always the best dining experience in Tauranga. I have been dining here for over 20 years and I have never been disappointed.
We had a lovely lunch at Harbourside, the service was exceptional and food absolutely incredible. Such a fabulous location! We can’t wait to go back.
We love Harbourside, there aren't many fine dining restaurants in Tauranga, or restaurants with water views, Harbourside offers both. You can always count on a great evening at Harbourside.
A lovely evening. Thank you.
Always plesant to come here, a lovely meal and evening with friends. And a birthday cake with a candle! That was a surprise. Thank you
Wonderful dinner out - thank you for a lovely evening!
We had a large group of 19 people and the food came out at the same time and was absolutely wonderful. Our waitress Shannon made the whole night as she was so lovely and totally went the extra mile as far as service went...and it came with a smile. Thanks Shannon.
Excellent service, chilled refreshments served perfectly, great range of food, enjoyable evening dinner. Thanks to management n staff.
Absolutely amazing lunch. Thank you. Only comment is that maybe there could have been some greens on the Eye Fillet meal.
What a fab night - the food was absolutely outstanding. And the birthday brownie at the end was a lovely touch - thank you! Karen&Charlie
Lovely food, great, friendly service. Our only comment would be that the Assiette of Seafood Entree (which would probably normally be shared by two) had five of each thing excluding the oysters. Whilst 22 years of marriage has fine tuned our cutlery duelling skills, it certainly made for a competitive eating experience 😁. Can’t wait to come back.
Awesome service and lovely food, absolutely our fav in tauranga
We absolutely love Harbourside, we feel like we are at friends for dinner. I can’t say one negative thing. The food is always consistent and beautiful, the staff are like family, we love them and love Harbourside.
Harbourside has been my favourite place to dine for probably 30 years, particularly under Peter's ownership and management . The food, service, atmosphere and situation are the best in town.
Absolutely amazing meal awesome service and a lovely location our favourite restaurant in Tauranga/Mt Maunganui area never fails to impress
