Wellington City is well-known as a gastronome’s nirvana.
With a stellar collection of superb cafés and restaurants, most within easy walking distance, plus an abundance of boutique brew bars, you’ll be spoilt for choice.
But if you head off the main routes you can discover some of the city’s tastiest spots.
Have a very special experience sampling world-class Māori cuisine at Hiakai, try the creative desserts at Shepherd, enjoy cheap and cheerful New Orleans-style cooking at Sweet Mother’s Kitchen or visit the unique Te Aro Wine – a winery right in the heart of the city.
From fine dining to creative coffee and craft beer, Wellington City is bristling with options that cater to all tastes and budgets.
