Trinity Wharf — Long Lunch

by | Mar 13, 2017 | Food & Drink | 0 comments

This is the way we WEEKEND, Bay style. 

Daydreaming about the perfect afternoon, Team UNO. decided it would include the following: good friends, bubbles, oysters and a knockout view.

Fortunately for us, dreams do come true. We took friends with the same idea of perfection to Tauranga Trinity Wharf. Privately owned by Bay locals, Geoff and Shelley Payne, the hotel is an institution; the landmark white building is always the first thing you see travelling over the bridge to the city, tucked into the waterfront.

Head chef, Stuart Perry, must have known what we wanted to order when devising the summer menu; adventurous plates, such as marinated baby octopus, sit alongside favourites such as earthy venison, balanced with ash-whipped feta and beetroot, and the glamorous joy of a dozen oysters.

When you live in the most beautiful spot in the world, you want to enjoy it; so head over to this beautiful deck over the water, wrapped round the entire restaurant. Just make sure you’ve cancelled the rest of your afternoon so you can fully commit to a relaxed, elegant lunch.


People who care about food dine at Somerset Cottage. This beloved culinary landmark has survived and thrived for three decades because owners Anne Butcher and Rick Lowe have a love to feed people well. Here they take us on a nostalgic and heart-warming ride.


Le Marie Café and Restaurant is the newest resident in the Pacific Apartments opposite the Mount Hot Pools. Serving up traditional French fare in Kiwi-sized proportions, Luciano Souza and Cimone Juliani are making the heart of this apartment complex beat to a whole new drum.
