Cuisine: A La Carte, Bistro, International
Price Point: Mains from $25 - $35

Amidst the hustle and bustle of Wellington’s busy CBD is a peaceful spot. Bistro 169 serves comforting, heart-warming food as well as relaxed vibes.

It’s nestled within the Mercure Wellington Abel Tasman Hotel and has all the charm of a traditional European bistro. Whether you choose to sit at the tables or recline in an armchair with a drink first, you’ll leave those everyday concerns at the door.

Warm up with some entrees, like their NZ green lipped mussels with garlic bread or sticky chicken wings. You don’t want to completely ruin your appetite! For mains, there are meaty classics like a braised lamb shank, Pan-seared Salmon or stuffed chicken.

For vegetarians, check out the beautiful Thai green curry. And in keeping with a traditional bistro, there are wines aplenty!
