A warm and welcoming fine dining experience, with great service, a comprehensive wine list and attractive and tasty meals. We had a great night out, and enjoyed a range of small plates, mains and sides. The pork belly was to die for, as was the ravioli. My beef cheeks were very tender, but lacked the flavour that I was expecting.... More

Not being a fan of high end restaurants, I was concerned that the vegetarian option was a Risotto, which can feel unexciting - but the flavours made it a real treat and worth the price. It was delicious - truly the best risotto I can say I've had. With the company of great friends, good wine and the lovely setting,... More

I went here with my friends for a dinner celebration kinda thing. We asked for a private space and I arrived to being led into a nice, quiet, intimate dining room! Food was divine. I had the Coriander lime squid which came on its own, so I had to order something else ( like fries) to complete my meal. I... More

The place is located in Wellington dinning and night neighbourhood. At Saturday night the streets are full of people. A very good environment. But you should make a reservation. The restaurant usually is full. The food is amazing. Well made, perfectly cooked, an excellent fusion of tastes. The wine list is also good. I would recommend the Te Tera (Sauvignon... More

My family and I recently ate at Hummingbird for a farewell dinner and we had the most excellent night! The waitstaff were lovely, complementing the wonderful food. I'm vegetarian and while my family is not, the food suited all of our tastes and no plate had food left on it at the end of the meal. Michele PuraVida Danielle and... More

This was one of the best restaurants we have ever eaten at on this tour. We had three choices and we were lucky to have chosen this place. Wonderful wait staff. The food was excellent. Every level of the meal was extremely good. Do not miss finding this little jewel.

Cosy Easter Sunday dinner for three was just what we hoped for. The staff were friendly and attentive, and the food was inventive, artistically presented and tasted great. We shared a few small plates first and had a main course each which worked well for us. The smoked salmon & the market fish were particular favourites but honestly couldn't fault... More
