Acclaimed plant-based dining at Hillside Kitchen
Seasonal and foraged eats at Wellington’s leading plant-based restaurant
The ever-changing wine list is small but varied, showcasing natural, organic and vegan wines. And, refreshingly, non-alcoholic drinks aren’t an afterthought. Hillside makes a range of sodas and kombucha in-house, and you can even opt for non-alcoholic drink matches with each course on your tasting menu.
Speaking of which, don’t be intimidated by the multi-course format. At Hillside, the food is gourmet but the atmosphere is far from stuffy. As soon as you step into the quaint little building on Tinakori Road, you’ll get a friendly welcome from the staff. Ron Crummer’s Kōwhai pendant lights cast a cosy glow over the stylish Scandi-inspired fit-out – think warm, simple timber rather than starched white tablecloths.
So leave your black-tie garb at home. Just come with an appetite for culinary adventure, and you won’t be disappointed.
