We went to this place with a group for the mid winter Christmas celebration. The place was warm and inviting with a water view. The three course meal was very delicious and filling. Unlike other fine dining restaurants, the serving portions were bigger. I enjoyed the Salmon with crispy skin and the Chocolate torte was divine.

Overall I was very impressed the charts were comfortable and the view over the harbour was lovely. I had the harbour fish which was very well cooked and my father had the steak we were very impressed when the waitress spoke about the marbling of the stake instead of just calling it fat. over all a very nice meal and...

This was our second time dining at the Dockside. We were planning to dine elsewhere but decided on Dockside due to its very welcoming & warm appeal from the wharf. We ordered from the set menu which was $55@head with 2 glasses of wine included which seemed like a pretty good deal. Our entree's consisted of beer battered tarakihi with... More

We had a pleasant dinner at Dockside to conclude a wonderful weekend in Wellington. We were seated upstairs, which offers a great view of both the interior of this exquisitely restored old harbourside cargo shed and also great views out over the harbour. The table service was very good. An excellent selection of a la carte dishes were on offer.... More

I had a dinner for two here and it was an all round great experience. The staff were very friendly and when tested knew their menu well. The view of the waterfront and double sided bar is also a great feature. Very clean, classy and soothing dining experience. My Katafi dessert was truly exceptional.

I recently attended a work event which offered a four course meal in a private dining room for just $50 at this restaurant. The same menu is normally $75 so how could I resist? Dockside is at the heart of the harbour side area of Wellington and is popular as a busy bar and as a restaurant. I was intrigued... More

We were visiting Wellington and had a grabone voucher for a seafood platter for 2. We received a platter fairly promptly but it was an anti pasta platter as they were no longer offering the seafood one. Ours was still valid. Graciously they added some seafood to the existing platter but it really was not fantastic. The staff were wonderful,... More

Fun and smiling place to eat and drink. With that famous Wellington spirit - relaxed, updated and unique. We were a large group of people.
