I was super excited when I saw The Matterhorns set menu for WOAP is vegetarian. I had a vegetarian degustation here about 2 or 3 years ago that was the best meal of my life! Once again I was impressed and left wanting to share how great my experience was! I love the service here it's casual enough to make... More

Disappointing is an understatement, firstly we waited an hour for our meals and the restaurant wasn't busy, several people that arrived after us were served first and when our meals did arrive they were over cooked and very dry. When the young waitress asked how our meals were and we said that it was extremely over cooked she rolled her... More

A friend and I went to Matterhorn for a coffee one night. It was full of nice, chilled out vibes. The service was great and I love it. Would definitely go back for sure!

We drank an apple cider for 9$ /330ml which is quite pricey but was well served, you get some free drinking water on ice all the time and it's a fine atmosphere.

Really enjoyed my visit and at the end of the day I would recommend to friends and family but be prepared to pay. Very expensive

Amazing cocktail menu here and the staff seem to be on to it too. Great for a first date or for a work dinner. Expensive but great.

This restaurant used to be one of the best if not the best in NZ but after the previous owners left it declined rapidly. I was annoyed today to see current owners blaming conditions in Wellington for their selling out so put in a belated review. Last time I went there was I was required to wait in that bar... More

Friends told us to visit this great cafe tucked away behind the shops. What a place to just relax and unwind.

This bar was recommended in several places as the best bar/restaurant combo in Wellington. As a small bar aficionado, I thought I'd give it a go. First of all the service was very slow - but then the service in New Zealand in general was like that, so I wasn't expecting much. The server said she would come back with... More
