Hippopotamus Restaurant and Cocktail Bar
Start your artistic evening with pre-show set menu for $65pp, including a glass of wine.
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 flamboyant Parisian chic design, marine views, large tables and high-class ambience, Hippopotamus is one of Wellington's most sought-after places to eat.
The restaurant offers Breakfast, Dinner and High-Tea menus.
By day, indulge in the strawberry shortcake and be treated to the exquisitely sweet. Golden hour breakfasts and high tea worthy of glamour royalty. In the evening, enjoy the harbour view with cocktails and wine to match the delicacies. French flavours pirouette with locally grown produce.
Any visit to Hippopotamus, though, isn't complete with both a sumptuous dessert and a nightcap in the opulent bar area.
