Imagine European essence infused with local heritage

Clarence is one special space where you’ll want to create memories and share with someone dear. The characterful historic post office building in Tauranga’s CBD sets the scene for a cultural and culinary experience to remember.

Savour the rare combination of a metropolitan escape, yet a cosy right-at-home feel when our Clarence family welcomes you.

Allow your mind and senses to wander when you dine, drink or stay with us.

Small plates, handmade pasta, pizza and grilled dishes as well as bar snacks inspired by the Mediterranean but not limited by its traditions.

Nostalgic yet contemporary, our cuisine remains unpretentious and focused on the essence of fresh and diverse Kiwi produce.  Let us take you on a culinary journey, paired with exceptional wines and hospitality throughout.


Our heritage establishment welcomes every occasion, wine from a curated extensive cellar, classic cocktails or craft beers and Peroni on tap.

Soak up the aroma and enjoy our vibrant metropolitan atmosphere either cosied up inside or relaxed in our summer garden for a well-deserved afterwork.

Revel in lusciously comfortable boutique rooms which are carefully curated, imprinting an impression when you stay with us.

It’s in the details. Your stay will leave you lingering in awe of the artistic thought-out décor and amenities that will have you whispering, I know a place…


Italian and Kiwi couple Noel and Kim Cimadom brought Europe home with them after living abroad for years. Kim’s design and fashion experience paired with Noel’s Italian passion for food and wine is a match made in heaven for them to embark on the Clarence dream.
