Got brunch here with a friend one weekend morning - Plum was packed but we were seated immediately, given menus and water. Food was so good and nicely priced, service was attentive but unobtrusive. Definitely recommend

Had a fab meal at Plum with 2 small kids in tow. There's a kids playground right outside the restaurant and we were able to have a drink out there and order our food while watching the kids. The waiter came and got us when our food arrived at the table and it was all delicious! Amazing service and beautiful... More

Took a little trip through Wellington with some friends (fellow crew-members). We managed our way from the cable car to the one and only Cuba Street. First of all, Cuba Street on its own is amazing. Needless to say, we worked up a bit of an appetite, so we did a bit of looking around to find the right place... More

Eight of us went here for a quick pre-theatre dinner. The cafe was told if our time constraints and performed admirably in looking after us. The staff were excellent, friendly and knowledgeable. Even though we only had time for a main course the meal was excellent. I had the lamb rump, that was awesome. Very nice bistro., would recommend giving... More

We have been here a few times for brunch and we absolutely love the food! Great care and attention is given to the food. Staff can be a bit rude and short at times - but apart from that I would highly recommend.

I came here for lunch earlier this week. I decided to go with a main plate and chose the Roasted Lamb Rump for $29 (see photo). It took a long time to take my order, and even longer gor the food to arrive - combined time 40 minutes. However, when it did arrive it was well worth the wait. Eat... More
