A hidden gem with mouthwateringly delicious food, you can see where this eatery got its name from. Hide Thirst & Hunger has everything you need and more.

Tucked away down a little lane in central Mount Maunganui, this eatery is a sun magnet during the day, leaving the courtyard comfortably warm as the evening draws in. Decked out with dozens of candles, picnic tables and a roaring fire, you can enjoy the cool outdoors all year round. A lively watering hole that attracts the surfers, locals and visitors alike, it's a hive of activity that feeds the body and soul.

The menu takes a tikki tour around global cuisines. From Central Thailand comes the perfectly spiced red beef curry, from New Zealand, the bone in Ribeye with potato and leek gratin and seasonal greens, and from England comes the humble fish & chips. You don't think they've forgotten Italy, do you? Our favourite cheat-day treat is wearing a smile; say hello to the classic Margherita, chicken and caremalised onion, and meaty pizzas!

When it comes to your thirst, the extensive wine list and a full range of tap beers including the likes of Peroni, Garage Project, Moa and more will take care of that.
