Nostalgia has never tasted so good. Where no corners are cut to achieve the most tantalising flavours, Norris and Bell experiments with traditional cooking methods and contemporary ingredients whilst reimagining Kiwi favourites.

For over a century this icon has brightened The Strand in Tauranga. What began as a land agency is now this bustling eatery that relishes uninterrupted views of the ocean in a historic setting. Effortlessly elegant, luxurious and seductive, this is one for those who enjoy the finer things in life.

The menu extracts every ounce of flavour from all the fresh ingredients on offer. Head to the Moana Bar for some oceanic starters. How about some crispy, beer-battered oysters, market fish ceviche or Cloudy Bay clams to get your evening off to a swimming start?

For mains, their woodfire is the star of the show, smoking and charring the cote de boeuf, Silere lamb rump and Awhi Ruapehu scotch fillet (amongst others) to perfection. Add to that meaty sumptuousness any of their jus’, sauces or butter and you have a heavenly mouthful. Other mains include a mushroom fricassee and chicken paillard whilst the dark chocolate delice dessert serves up a sweeter kind of decadence. Spellbinding flavours; that’s Norris and Bell.
