In the edgy street that is Cuba street, this corner feels a bit arty, colonial and welcoming. Delicious perfectly poached eggs to go with small ciabatta. The food ordered from neighboring tables looked nice too. A bustling place that is clearly popular. As a sweet treat their white chocolate tamarillo cupcakes were yum! Overall, I would go back.

We have dined at Floriditas on a number of occasions over the past 3 or 4 years. On our last trip to Wellington we were looking forward to another great experience. Unfortunately we were to be dissapointed. The restaurant was perhaps 1/3rd full when we arrived soon after 7:00pm - which was surprising - we were expecting to wait for a table as in the past.
Pre dinner drinks were ordered and the G&Ts were delivered "naked". We had to request a slice of lemon to add a bit of zing.
Two of the party had the chicken liver pate and reported that it was very good. The pea & ham soup of the day and the Polenta & lime crusted squid & prawns were said to be "nothing to write home about".
The parties who orderd the duck and steak mains were satisfied with thier choices - but neither raved about them. The two of us who ordered the lamb skewers, Urenika potatoes, watercress & mint salad were totally underwhelmed. Apart from the lamb being well cooked this dish fell well short of expectations - just a couple of lamb skewers resting on a very simple watercress salad with a simple vinagarette. The Urenika potatoes were cold and dry and detracted from the dish. The side dish of roasted squash was that was ordered for the table was also "average at best".
We finished with deserts all around which were very good.
Unfortunately our neighbours were having a mare and were complaining bitterly about some aspect of their meal - which didn't help the atmosphere.
Service was OK - but not exceptional. Sureley wait staff at a restaurant of this quality should be able to remember which dish the guests had ordered. After all there were only four meals to remember!!
Will we be back? ... probably not.

So nice to be able to return for some of my 'Gold Standard' scrambled eggs. I even took a picture for the occasion. Great eggs as per & the service was amazingly attentive & the lovely waitresses didn't even mind that my 6 month old had trashed the dining room. The eggs were beautifully cooked with herbs & served on sliced ciabatta. Coffee was deeeelish too. I will be back to calibrate the standard sometime again soon :)

Have a wonderful selection of cakes and pastries. I always opt for simply poached eggs and a cup of tea. Have tried the Fish and Hash very good as well.

Could have been in Italy, this italian restaurant served fabulous food. Semi-casual dining, but also great for that romantic dinner. The menu changes daily here, and highly recommended.
