Lured in by offer of free dessert with mains before 6:30pm. Friendly and efficient waitress, good ambience, stylish decor. Superb pork and delicious creme brulee.

The main meal, dessert and wine options were great, very delicious. The ambience of the restaurant is also lovely and the staff are friendly, efficient and helpful. I highly recommend this restaurant for a great night out in Wellington, NZ

Went here for Sunday Brunch with my girlfriend and we both ordered the pasta of the day. It was delicious and filled us right up for the day ahead. At $12 dollars each it was great value and I would definitely recommend trying this place out. Staff were courteous and friendly which seems to be the norm in Wellington.

On Monday night we have a fantastic dinner. I have my medium cook steak and red wine jus and grilled gourmet potatoes and field mushroom. It was verry tasty. I will come back again. Would recommend this bistro.

We liked the looks of this place on Cuba Street and were so happy we decided to have dinner there. The four of us had different entrees and everyone was pleased. Prices were pretty reasonable and although the place filled up, our service was good.

I had the fish and risotto at $32 and it was a joy to eat - fish was just cooked and two good portions sat on top of a mound of lovely cauliflower risotto - all helped along with some extra vegetables for the table. One of the best value meals I have had in the past 5 months while... More

I have been to Cuba Street Bistro 3 times in the last 3 years for dinner, on a date with my partner, for a farewell dinner with work colleagues and lastly on Tuesday this week I returned for a catch up dinner with a friend. I have never left disappointed or hungry! Each time I have visited I have experienced... More
