Relaxed Bistro in the 'Motel Mile' of Rotorua. Great morning coffee, informal lunches and lively dinners, all in a contemporary, modern interior a short distance from central Rotorua.
Open all day, Urbano Bistro does the best coffee in Rotorua, and some divine brunches including Cream of Oyster Soup, French Toast and the famous 'Urbano Big Boy', a huge cooked breakfast.
The dinner menu is quite refined, with Sweetbreads in Marsala Cream Sauce being a standout from the entrees. For main, the Venison and Lamb steaks are thick and juicy, and the Ostrich Fillet usually sells out, so order early.
Children get their own menu, including tempura fish and chips, or Beef Nachos, and the dining room itself is subtly low-lit and conducive to those intimate moments or casual evenings with friends. Family-run, Urbano Bistro is a welcome addition to this area of town and has even become a regular haunt of the locals.
