The French jewel in our culinary crown

On Level 3 of QT Wellington, you’ll find Hippopotamus Restaurant & Cocktail Bar. Up above the sparkling waterfront, sip and savour in a glitzy setting that rivals the view. A work of art itself, Hippo is brimming with plush textures and pops of colour. All gilded and glam, it’s a step back in time, but with modern quirks and a seasonal menu that’s ever-evolving. Cocktails are served under chandeliers, and breakfast is by buffet or à la carte. Classic French technique mixes with local New Zealand ingredients and tableside theatre, resulting in a dinner-and-a-show spectacle.
