Iconic Wellington restaurant, Boulcott Street Bistro opened its doors in 1991 and over the past 20+ years has welcomed visitors and locals alike with warm hospitality, fine food cooked with care, and a well chosen wine list,  all served in a relaxed atmosphere.

Boulcott Street Bistro follows a benevolent tradition , proudly serving its many loyal customers a combination of innovative, modern fare, classic bistro dishes, and great wines earning the reputation as a Wellington favourite. The kitchen sources the freshest seasonal produce available, and are always happy to accommodate dietary requirements and requests.

The Heritage setting of the restaurant, also known as Plimmer House, is a delightful Wellington landmark.  Plimmer house is named after John Plimmer, the notable Wellingtonian who was officially bestowed the title ‘Father of Wellington’. The charming inner-city Gothic cottage was originally built as a wedding gift by a local groom for his bride to be in the late 1870s and came into the possession of the Plimmer family in 1911.

Bookings can be made for lunch, but no need to book for dinner as it is casual dining. To help celebrate a special occasion we can organise flowers, champagne and a delicious house-baked chocolate cake. We have set menus for 10 or more if you are organising a function. Roast dinners, a traditional favourite, are available every Sunday evening from 5.30pm with our “Roast & Red” special, and this includes a delicious homemade dessert and a glass of red.

The private dining room seating 10 – 16 for lunch or dinner is also perfect for conferences or work functions with full catering services to suit your needs
