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 America's 'deep south' comes the pulled beef burger, from New Zealand, the prosciutto-wrapped eye fillet with porcini mash and charred brussel sprouts 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 spicy chicken, prawn, winter vege 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.
