We had a lovely dinner here the other night, the service was amazing.
We had a sangria to start our evening, then had oysters, and the best prawns I have ever had.
We both had fish dishes for dinner, and the dessert was out of this world.
The lady that served us was lovely, and knew everything about the menu - as well as the wines, it was a lovely evening, very relaxing .... we will be back on a regular basis - defnitely recommend for people in and out of Wellington....it isn't cheap - but it is worth is.
We spent $215 for the two of us - and the food was right up there with the best we've had...the best thing about this place is that you don't need to dress fancy - relaxing and great evening.

Have recently moved away from Wellington, and wanted to record the fantastic meals (both special initmate dinners for two and celebrations / getogethers for up to ten), we have enjoyed over the years. Always delighted with the enthusiasm professionalism and knowledge of the service and kitchen staff, the extensive / comprehensive wine list and the fabulous food! Have so enjoyed Ortega with family and friends and also as a venue for professional entertaining.

With a sublime effortlessness in Ortega‘s cuisine, focussing on fresh seafood and produce with a twist of oriental, alongside the front of house Davey – Maitre’d and co-owner – with his quirky-slick presence, there is no question as to why people leave here with lauding reviews, and that the halls are decked with numerous awards for front of house, cuisine, best fish restaurant, and even for its beer list.

Ortega Fish Shack is not to be missed. The staff were very friendly and welcoming. The Roasted Tarakihi was a delicious main meal, followed by the the pear souffle- yummy.
Highly recommended.
