It is close to the heart of Katikati on SH2 and only 20 minutes drive from Tauranga.


The  Forta Leza Country Inn is a family owned and operated country inn. In 1979 Norma Belcher along with her husband bought the property and with the help of her son Haydn and wife Mary brought the place back from a run down business to what it is today.


Haydn continues to do the cooking, offering quality meals at affordable prices from a menu of at least 30 different dishes, from seasonal fresh New Zealand seafood to steak and sensational Pizzas.

The  Forta Leza  has an extensive Blackboard menu of bar snacks for those who are travelling and just want to relax and take in the ambience of the atmosphere. For an à la carte experience we have our Country Inn Restaurant, with a great selection of New Zealand fare, seafoods, meats, seasonal vegetables and salads. Vegetarian and gluten free meals are also available on request.
