Hippopotamus Restaurant and Cocktail Bar


Fine Dining European French Vegan Bars Cocktail Bars

Exquisite fine dining opposite Wellington Harbour in this third floor restaurant inside the QT Hotel (formally Museum Art Hotel). Stunning, ornate decor, five-star service and food that looks far too good to eat.

With its marine views, large tables and high-class ambience, Hippopotamus is one of Wellington's most sought-after places to eat.

Often booked up weeks in advance, the restaurant offers a range of menus to suit everyone's timetable, from Lunch Set Menus, Corporate Menus, Pre-Show Dining Menus and a standard A La Carte.

The Brasserie Lunch Menu wouldn't look out of place in a first-class dinner restaurant, with delights such as Poached Scampi in a Clam Veloute, and Salmon Sashimi in the entrees section, and Braised Pork Belly, Beef Fillet and Sirloin Steak in Red Wine & Butter Sauce for the main.

Any visit to Hippopotamus, though, isn't complete with both a sumptuous dessert and a nightcap in the opulent bar area. You'll be treated like royalty here, right down to the complimentary valet parking and personal table service.
