What others say about our restaurant:
“Favourite Wellington Restaurant”
Have been to Wellington only three times in three years and each time we go to this restaurant. Excellent ambiance, wonderful food with friendly and very efficient service. Have recommended this to friends and they have all said the same. You cannot reserve a table but a nice bar to have a drink while you wait.

“Delicious food in relaxed surroundings :)”
As usual, a lovely meal in relaxed surroundings. Wee bit disappointed that we weren’t offered an amuse-bouche, as we had on other visits.

It’s an unconventional sandwich, it’s a sensational sandwich!
For the month of October, our Famous $20 Lunch is a grilled fish sandwich – grilled fish of the day with a delicious crayfish mayonnaise on sour dough and a Mediterranean side salad.
Available Sunday – Friday lunchtimes for the month of March.
For the month of August our Famous $20 Lunch is the classic Toulouse Cassoulet with Waitoa chicken, pork belly, smoky lardons, chorizo and white cannolini beans.
Enjoy with a glass of Hawkes Bay Cabernet or a Côtes du Rhône.
This iconic dish from Southwest France is cherished espeically during the winter months because of it’s hearty and wholesome flavours The name cassoulet comes from the word cassole, referring to the traditional, conical clay pot in which it is cooked (and which the potters of the village of Issel perfected).
As Julia Child, the original American who went to Paris and brought back a culinary revolution, memorably said, “Cassoulet, that best of bean feasts, is everyday fare for a peasant but ambrosia for a gastronome, though its ideal consumer is a 300-pound blocking back who has been splitting firewood nonstop for the last twelve hours on a subzero day in Manitoba.”
Available lunchtime, Monday – Friday.
Enjoy our take on the classic Surf and Turf this month – Aged sirloin with garlic Tiger King prawn, hand cut fries and red wine jus.

The earliest known record of this delicious contential dish is from 1961, in the Los Angeles Times
The BSB Lamb Shank made its first appearance on the Bistro menu in 1991 and it’s back as our Famous $20 Lunch in June.
Served just the way you like it – braised lamb shank with mash, minted peas and lentil jus, it’s the perfect mid-winter meal.
Our Lamb Shank dish has been so popular, we were delighted to find a number of photos taken by diners over the years so we’re putting together a little gallery,Fifty Shades of Shanks
