This is my second trip to Dragonfly. Yet again all of the food was amazing, the drinks were great and the service was among the best I've had in Wellington, if not the best - friendly and attentive staff.

I came here with my family and my boyfriends family or dinner. Food and drinks were fantastic and service was even better! We were pretty annoying between the 7 of us. My sister split a drink all over the table; the waitress brought us napkins...More

First stop for the night out, and we struck it lucky here, with half price cocktails on a Tuesday night ($62 for 8!). Definitely worth a visit for yummy cocktails, a cool vibe, young, friendly staff and competent cocktail bar staff. The decor is very...More
