Tastiest new spots

It seems there's always a new eatery or bar that's just opened up in Wellington. Here are some of the most recent and recommended.

Hugos Whisky Lounge

Hugo's Whisky Lounge offers you a chance to escape from the hustle, bustle, and loud noises around Courtenay place and enter a world of whisky. This place houses a 150 strong collection - cocktails, beer and wine.

The Botanist

Tucked away in Lyall Bay is The Botanist, serving up mouth-watering views, and equally mouth-watering food. Herbivores rejoice! This place serves only vegetarian and vegan fare.

Comes & Goes

Insta-worthy meals await you at Chef Sean Lim's Comes & Goes in Petone. Food is plated to perfection, covered in herbs and flowers, giving you plenty of Insta-worthy fodder.

Leroy's Bar

The best way to describe Leroy's is 'fun', complete with caravan seating, beer you can pour yourself and if you head in on a Thursday, you can try your luck at the spinning wheel to win up to a $500 bar tab. The kimchi fries are an absolute must.


Brought to you by the La Boca Loca family, Boquita is real, delicious, plant-based food. Expect a range of organic and plant-based Mexican meals, perfect for a nutritious lunch or dinner.


If Wellington was a bar, it would be HUSK. The brewery/roastery/bar/restaurant has everything a Wellingtonian could need - good beer, good coffee, good grub, good vibes.

French Baker

The French Baker assembles a delightful assortment of bread and patisseries on a daily basis. Combined with fresh coffee and great service this cafe is the perfect location to relax and unwind. 

La Cloche

La Cloche Central provides Wellington's finest selection of French cheeses, patés, meats, homemade patisseries, and other fine french deli goods on sale to go or to be enjoyed in their café.


Described as "classic throwback comfort food you can enjoy in style", head to Dillinger's if you're after a little American glam, southern fried chicken and a myriad of excellent beers and wines to choose from.

Sweet Bakery & Cakery

The Karori favourite is opening a Cuba St store on October 8 and our collective sweet tooth is quivering with excitement! The new spot will be packed full of delicious cakes and epic design-your-own milkshakes... Drool.
