Tauranga Restaurants

Tauranga’s cosmopolitan lifestyle means that there are many fine restaurants dotted around the city 3km away as well as in Mount Maunganui, only fifteen minutes drive away. 

The Strand in Tauranga is a hub of activity offering a great selection of bars, cafes and restaurants.  Located on the edge of Tauranga’s harbour, The Strand has a diverse range of cuisine from distinctly New Zealand-style flavours through to those with an Asian or Pacific influence.

At meal times, there's plenty of choice within walking distance of Comfort Inn Academy. Supermarkets, cafes and other food outlets (including Burger King, Subway Domino's Pizza, Pita Pit, Hell's Pizza and a Chinese restaurant/takeway) are all a short stroll away. Aneatery - Quantum Vis is 600m from the motel.
