We celebrated our engagement with the most beautiful meal at Fife Lane. Hands down the best customer service you will experience. The team was so efficient, friendly and went above and beyond to make our night a memorable one. The food was AMAZING, we highly...recommend the oysters and kokoda. The food came out in great timing as did the drinks. We were so impressed with all of the staff, the quality of the food and the atmosphere. Such a beautiful and classy place.More

Incredible food and the service was fab! Great service from the onset when I booked this online (being from out of town). For a special meal (it was our early Christmas dinner) it is simply stunning.

A real treat, excellent service and wonderful atmosphere, not to mention the great cocktail list. But the highlight was the oysters! Delicious!! Highly recommend if you love meat! But the sides were also pretty great. Worth the wait!

We had heard great things. We weren’t disappointed. From the moment you walk through the door you know it’s going to be a good night. There is simply nowhere else in Tauranga that meets this standard. The fit out has class, the tables are solid...and large, the seating is generous and comfortable, the art work tasteful, the lighting is spot on. Walking past the gallery kitchen on entry makes you feel like you belong. The service was excellent, wine list extensive but not pretentious. And the food? Simply beautiful. It wasn’t just the well designed menu or the combination of flavours, it was simply this produce is of the highest quality and you can taste it. Well done Fife and thank you. I can’t finish without mentioning the stunning bathrooms - they are some seriously stylish facilities! We will be back for sure.More

This is our third visit to Fife Lane and we don't live in the area. Fife Lane is a must visit when you are in the Mount or Tauranga. This was my partners Birthday and when I made the online reservation I made a not...of this. On arrival at our table there was a Birthday Card, - thank you Fife, just a little gesture but meant a lot. The food is on point, the service is impeccable but not pretentious. The steaks were amazing and we love that we can choose the knives we use. Keep doing what you are doing, we can't wait to come back again at some point.More

Had the pleasure of having been there on two occasions . Stand out is the fact that one would probably not expect this sort of establishment in it’s geographic position .... It would be better placed downtown Manhattan or the French Riviera Tastefully furnished with...generous seating . Staff attentive but not pushy .... Cocktails are a must . Good selection of starters including my favourite - steak tartare Prawn and octopus starters are also a favourite ... Steaks are grilled to perfection as is the fish according to those in my party that tried it . Cuts of meat are generous and top notch quality ..... Fabulous wine list .... Only thing I can’t comment on are the deserts as I have always reached complete satiety by the time it gets to them .... A must try place ... but beware you may have to book weeks in advance ....More
