Bayfair Shopping Centre in Tauranga is to see six new restaurants opening today as part of a new al fresco dining area.

The six new restaurants are Burger Burger, Mexico, Nandos, Izakai, The Freeport Tavern and Eatery from Little Creatures, and Cleaver and Co. They will be part of the mall's new precinct Dine at Bayfair, the second stage of its multi-million-dollar redevelopment. In December 2018 more than 30 new retailers were opened followed by the opening of gaming arcade Timezone in April this year. A seven-screen cinema is expected to open later this year or in early 2020.
