Tucked away on the far side of the Wellington Harbour, Days Bay is home to what for me was the unexpected - and award winning restaurant and chef, that have both seemed to fly a bit under my radar.

A great place to take in the harbour with an oaky Chardonnay and tempura oysters. Our Days Bay local. It's like having Wellington on a Plate on your doorstep every day of the year.

The Cobar restaurant is in Eastbourne in Days Bay. Take a trip across on the East by West ferry, spend the day in Days Bay, walk round to Eastbourne and enjoy the wonderful NZ welcome. The Cobar is presently offering some specials for Sunday evening and Sunday lunch so take a trip round the Bays to secure a place there.... More

The setting is still gorgeous, the welcome warm on a chilly winter's evening. Charming attentive staff, crisp napkins, shining silver.f. All perfect. Alas, our set three course meal with choices of main... More

We decided to venture back out to Cobar as friends lived close by, our last few visits were a little mixed although booth times were lunch time experiences. We were certainly not disappointed with friendly service and attention to detail. All meals were fresh and with all natural local ingredients, perfectly cooked Pork and real crackling, fresh fish and room... More
