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.

We requested dining in the deck however this didn’t happen . However the service was exceptional and food was nice .
Always love coming to Harbourside. Food and service are great. Always feel welcomed by Staff. Situation and outlook and atmosphere terrific. My number one pick in Tauranga.
The food was exquisite. The main was some of the best chicken I have ever had, every bite brought a giant smile to my face that I couldn't control. The wine pairings were perfect only ever elevating all flavors but not taking any enjoyment from the meal or wine but complementing each other. Considering I never have dessert because they are usually far too sweet, this dessert was simple but had powerful big bold flavors. The staff were friendly, warm, funny, passionate, knowledgeable the perfect hosts. I would recommend this restaurant to any stranger on the street and implore them to visit.
We have been here many times and have always had the same outstanding service , awesome food and the best spot in town
we had, yet another, wonderful meal with you, the lamb was simply divine and the Venison was delicious too. service was friendly, professional and well timed as we had time to just chat between courses, and just enjoy the view. We are never disappointed, please keep up the great work. :-)
The food was Devine but the wait staff we had at our table was lovely, very personable and freindly, lovely day out with family , Georgous setting on the verandah, our Australian family member commented that it was easily as lovely as some of the places she’s been to in Melbourne. Thankyou
Great place, consistent food and service - will be back.
Excellent service. Well looked after
Thank you so much for an amazing dinner last night for my mother's 70th. Best meal I have had in any restaurant for a very long time. Great service and stunning fresh food. Please thank wait staff and kitchen for their work. 25 years in hospitality so I appreciate a good restaurant.. Hope to see you again. Regards Dan Rodger's
Three years ago we dined at Harbourside and had a most memorable meal. Visiting Tauranga this weekend gave us a chance to dine there again. Another memory making evening.
The best meal out we have had in a while. The food was outstanding, the service entertaining, thanks Chris, and a table overlooking the harbour. Perfect. We will definitely be back again, thanks.
A delightful restaurant for a special occasion, reflected in the slightly higher than average prices. Lovely staff and great food in a fabulous location!
Very enjoyable lunch on the veranda, the staff were very pleasant and efficient and all with a smile.
Great thanks totally enjoyed it
