HALO Awarded Beef & Lamb Excellence Award



It’s one thing to take out an award…but to receive the accolades consistently…well that’s another achievement all together.


The Beef & Lamb Excellence Awards holds a high level of prestige amongst the hospitality industry and in the hearts of New Zealanders that no other culinary awards programme has been able to replicate. So for Halo Lounge & Dining (led by Executive Chef Stuart Perry) to receive a ‘Gold Plate Award’ for two consecutive years, is indeed a notable achievement.

Halo Lounge & Dining was just one of a handful of eateries in the Bay Of Plenty region to be bestowed this highly regarded award. Restaurants are judged on their on individual merits and style of cuisine.

The main idea behind the Excellence Awards is to recognise those restaurants where diners can expect tasty, skillfully composed and superbly cooked quality beef & lamb dishes…and to showcase the unique New Zealand food story.

Halo’s winning dishes are now available on Halo’s Dinner Menu.

  • Silver Fern Farms Lamb Rump with a herb polenta cake, pancetta cabbage, brown onion glaze.

  • Seared Wagyu Strip Loin with short rib, grilled asparagus, chimichurri

“At Halo we love food, and we care where it comes from. Which is why we’ve elected to use Silver Fern Farms and First Light Wagyu range of premium meats - because it’s pasture-raised and grass-fed. This allows us to create meals with better flavour, nutritional value, tenderness and quality.” Stuart Perry - Executive Chef, Trinity Wharf Tauranga



Every fine lady (and gentleman) likes to be treated to High Tea - such a wonderful British tradition! 

And of course the tea selection is of the utmost importance for important gatherings...so the team at Halo have in their wisdom reviewed many tea houses and selected the funky T2 tea selection. T2 take tea consumption to another sensory level...and just like the Tauranga waterfront views...you won't be able to get enough of this refreshing brew.  

Our Executive Chef and his team like to experiment and explore different culinary delights, and promise an impressive collection of tasty morsels. High Tea is an ideal treat for colleagues, family get-togethers, special celebrations and birthdays, or the perfect excuse for a gathering with 'the girls'.
