Firstly - a popular restaurant that allows you to make a reservation! That is a rarity these days!
We were not disappointed.
From the tempting menu to the helpful staff, this place is a winner.
All the food is beautifully cooked and wonderfully fresh.
The hardest thing is deciding what to eat, there are so many great choices.
The food is fresh and cooked to perfection. the portions are a perfect size so you don't feel overfull if you make it to dessert - which I would recommend. Though generally I don't have a sweet tooth to satisfy, it was hard to go past the Catalan crepes with orange caramel sauce and vanilla ice cream. Quite simply delicious!!

We had looked at Trip Advisor to determine where we should have dinner in Wellington. I kept coming back to Ortega Fish Shack. I decided to call and see if we could get reservations for three (it was a saturday night). They told us they were totally booked but we could come and see if we could get a space at the bar. I am so glad that we did.

We had three different types of fish and they were all excellent. We had olives and fresh bread with the fish. YUM!

One of the best meals we had during our visit.

Fabulous little restaurant with great service, food, ambiance and drink selections. Everything we ate was amazing. The salmon and pumpkin gnocchi were Devine and the dessert of crepe with orange Carmel sauce and vanilla ice cream was superb. Definitely a must if in Wellington.
