Visited Wellington for just under a week with my young family, we ate most of our meals out and this place was a highlight, in that EVERYONE enjoyed their meals. Great kids menu options combined with a varied adults menu

Many restaurants and bars serve drinks. There's a meal menu and a drinks menu. Never have I ever been asked for ID to enter an establishment before unless I ordered a drink with my meal. I've been to eat at pubs and haven't been stopped before taking a seat to see if I'm old enough (I'm close to 30 by... More

Dear Red2explorer, First of all, thank you for taking the time to write a review for us.

We ate here a few days ago and couldn't believe how small the meals were. They're more like a large entree size and cost $22 - $24. The food was okay but nothing special, either. Service was prompt but not particularly friendly. No one came to check what we thought of our meals. The place looks a bit neglected and... More

Great place for a beer and feed. A number of specials each night allows you to get a cheap meal while watching sports. Highly recommend for a nice meal out. The cowboy burger is delicious.

Had a different selection of meals here at the Arizona Restaurant by the Intercontinental Hotel. It was quite purely American but delicious all the same. The deco and atmosphere brings back memories of typical American restaurants. For a difference it was a great change.

Since our hotel served a set menu (to hoards of tour bus groups) we walked around to the Arizona Bar. Wow, although it was busy we were seated very quickly. Being Gluten Free means it can be a bit frustrating choosing food to eat from the menu. No such problem here. Ordered a 'tapas' style menu and when the food... More

Went for a Friday lunch in school holidays. Was really busy but they accommodated the kids and had a colouring in page. Was a kids menu with lots of options. Pork sandwich and polenta chips were really good. Kids enjoyed hamburger as well. Fries were also very tasty. A good place for a pub lunch with work. Would recommend.

Went for lunch with a friend yesterday. She had the gnocchi and said it was very yummy. I had the new vegetarian burger, that's been on the menu just 2 weeks. It was absolutely delicious!!! The service was excellent as well, especially from the tall guy with the British accent?! Will be back again soon!!!!!
