Took friends here for brunch. Four meals were awful. Cold plates, Poached eggs were hard and overcooked, bacon was cold and undercooked. Took ages to arrive. When complained about one meal was rudely refunded and the other feedback was rudely ignored. Please don't waste your money here when there are so many lovely places to eat in Wellington.

On our recent visit from UK, we only had 1 night in Wellington. (Nowhere near enought time, I know) so chose to eat at The Port cafe in Chaffers Dock. We waited AN HOUR AND TEN MINUTES for our food to arrive, and there were several other tables waiting before us. No real explanation was given, and because we had... More
