Alfresco Dining in Wellington

There's nothing quite like dining out under the stars and Wellington has a fine array of Alfresco dining restaurants. ViewWellington.co.nz's list of recommended restaurants to enjoy Alfresco dining in Wellington offers the ultimate venues to dine out in the open air.
You’ll find Mac’s Brewery Bar at the start of Taranaki St on Wellington’s waterfront, a stone’s throw from Te Papa and sharing a building with the Mac’s Brewery itself. For years now we’ve been matching that beer with fine food, functioning the year round as a meeting place of great minds and well-honed palates. Pull up a stool, ponder the menu and (while keeping one eye on the rugby possibly) order a glass of one of Mac’s award-winning brews.

The Cobar Restaurant is set in the heart of Days Bay, one of Wellingtons favourite getaways. While the Cobar is only a short drive or quick ferry ride from the city you will feel a million miles away as you relax and soak up the views of the Harbour, whatever the weather.
