If you want a warm, comfortable place to go for dinner on a coolish evening don’t walk past Zeytin at the Mount! The atmosphere and decor is lovely. We were both very impressed with the food which was delicious and beautifully presented. Thank you for looking after us so well! If we lived here this would definitely be one of our regular haunts.

Four of us dined at Zeytin At The Mount, two ate the Chicken Parmigiana and two ate chicken Tagine.. All thoroughly enjoyed our meal....flavoursome and filling. The beers were served efficiently, lovely and cold on a warm evening. Service was unobtrusive and timely. An excellent dining experience.

We dined at Zeytin at the Mount on Friday night as part of our holiday to the Bay of Plenty. Best food we experienced whilst here. Fresh and pure ingredients enhanced in a natural way. The scallops were my favourite however the braised beef was definitely hard to beat. But oh my, if you're one for a bit of baklava then this is your place. Would definitely recommend and if I lived here I'd be there once a week for sure. 5/5

Awesome relaxed atmosphere with excellent, attentive service. An extensive menu with a wide variety of vegetarian options. Meals were delivered efficiently with generous portion sizes, all full of flavour and super fresh! Would highly recommend to anyone, for a couple or group of people. We had an awesome experience at Zeytins. Thanks heaps!

It’s definitely worth going! Everything we ordered was delicious! The brie with nuts we had as a starter was very flavorful and comes with a very crunchy and warm bread that makes it even better! I had the chicken with tomato, ginger and apricot and my husband had the kebab. All the dishes are quite big and we ended up taking some home for the following day.
The price is very reasonable compared to other places around.

The food was good. Plates are very large and it was more food that we could eat! :)

It would be nice to have had some toys or colouring books for the kids but the staff was helpful and gave us what they could find : a pencil and a couple of pieces of paper.

Pleasant meal with a nice variety in the menu, though at times we did feel we were watched closely by one staff member. Also not informed on menu or by staff that brownie contained nuts and I’m unfortunately allergic, when we pointed this out staff seemed disinterested. Due to this experience I don’t feel we would return.

Zeytin is a wonderfully presented restaurant truly at the heart of Mount Maunganui, everything from the decor to the friendly staff gives this place such a warm and inviting atmosphere and their food only goes above and beyond! We were greeted by a lovely waitress who was very helpful with our order and made sure the meal came out at perfect timing. The meze board was an absolute winner, a divine range of dips, cheeses, olives and cured meats with literally enough fluffy golden Turkish bread to feed a family! We couldn't believe this was only the beginning. Next we had the falafel salad, halloumi meze and Moroccan chicken tagine, all of which were cooked to perfection and full of flavour, accompanied by a large serving of green salad which made the meal very fresh and light. The only down side of our experience was that after such tasty and generously served meals we has absolutely no room for dessert! Will remember that for next time, thank you Zeytin At The Mount for such a pleasurable evening!

Our young sons were ravenous at 5pm and when we asked if we could come even earlier than 530, they kindly agreed. Their great hospitality continued, offering child sized juices and pizza from the main menu. These were no little plates though, the portions were so generous and the food healthy, fresh and tasty. The beef cheeks on lentils were sublime and just what I felt like after an afternoon carrying gumboots and piggy backing kids around the Mount. We left with happy full pukus!

We love Zeytins and often visit when at Mount Manganui - be it for a bite of lunch or a leisurely dinner.
This time we went for dinner with family from overseas. We were warmly greeted and seated at a comfortable table near the door. Water arrived quickly and drinks orders taken.
When ordering our meals they unfortunately had no avocado for the prawn and avocado salad but the menu options are varied so it was easy to make another choice.
The Beef Cheeks were absolutely divine - just fell apart with the lightest pressure of the fork and the gravy with lentils and carrots just finished it off perfectly.
The lamb and feta pizza was delicious and generously topped.
The desserts were also delicious and absolutely huge - definitely meant for sharing.

As diners of three adults and three children we couldn't fault our experience!! Beautiful atmosphere and great service. Food was bought out quickly and the variety offered suited all ages - meals were presented beautifully and large!! We would definitely go again and highly recommend this restaurant as one that presents great value for money and has a really stunning atmosphere!

On arrival we were greeted immediately and shown to our table. Great service by friendly waitress. Good size portions for both main and dessert. We were actually full after our main but couldn’t pass up the chocolate brownie which was well worth it. On the whole, a great night out, thank you Zeytins.

The Baked Brie for 2 was a delicious starter. Warm and creamy with dates, nuts and honey with toasted ciabatta. We tried one serving of the scallop meze and spec. Small but tasty. The Chicken and Apricot Tagine was hearty and piping hot in its cast iron bowl. Beautiful flavours but next time I would wait for winter when I need warming up. Chicken Parmigiana was the perfect choice. Stacked in a bowl served with a generous salad in fact this is one Restaurant where the side salad is to be enjoyed as part of the meal and not left on the side. I was disappointed at Dessert time though as I saw Rum Baba on the Blackboard and was anticipating a little yeasty cake drissled with a rum syrup. Alas I was served a Rum and Coke (i think) in a glass so thats something to be aware of. The Affogatto with Lemoncello was enjoyed by my husband though. We knew what to expect for that. Lovely staff and the place got really busy for a Tuesday night so that says it all.
