Whitebait celebrates the best seasonal, local produce and New Zealand seafood – we focus on the freshest ingredients, cooked simply, using our Josper charcoal fired oven.  The only embellishments are provided naturally – with a relaxing interior and spectacular views across the Wellington Waterfront.

Whitebait is the 2015 winner of Cuisine’s “Good Food” Best New Restaurant in New Zealand.

“the best ingredients, sustainable and simply prepared”
