Ranked: #4 of 58 restaurants in Wellington

Situated at the heart of Queens Wharf, housed in an historic waterfront shed, Dockside enjoys stunning views from every aspect with a maritime theme throughout.

Dockside offers a largely seafood-based menu that changes daily with emphasis on the best, freshest produce and providing even the most regular customers with new choices and the latest catch.

With one of the largest outdoor dining areas over water in the Southern Hemisphere, it would be difficult to find a better venue to enjoy Wellington’s waterfront.

Taking into account Wellington's unpredictable weather patterns, the deck can be covered with a large retractable roof whilst still offering the superb feeling of al fresco dining.

I had the chicken thighs for lunch. Was too dry and just a bit too much spice for the bed of lasagne at the bottom. Strong flavours all around so was a bit too much and I couldn’t finish it. I did try the duck though and I regret not getting that instead. It was beautiful , soft and juicy.
The dessert was perfect. I had the chocolate mousse and it was just divine. Staff were very friendly and efficient and I do appreciate the service we received. I cannot wait to return, it was a very lovely lunch date thank you Dockside.

We loved our lunch experience at Dockside. The venue is fabulous, the day was sunny and it was such a treat to sit near the window and enjoy the ambiance. The service was excellent, the waitress was knowledgeable about the menu and the drinks came out promptly. The food was beautifully presented and delicious. We would happily dine here again and would love to come back! Thank you for a very enjoyable dining experience

My first time using first table .I was visiting Wellington and very happy with amazing location of the restaurant and also delicious food what we eat. Entree scallops &Calamari, followed by fish &chip and desserts were divine. The staff were very friendly and received good service.Highly recommend Dockside restaurant to anyone .

Excellent.

We had the fish and chips for lunch (1 x battered and 1 x crumbed) which were very well cooked (the slaw salad was ok but could have been tastier). We also added the blackened prawns to the meal which were awesome and cooked perfectly. The side order of the mac&cheese bites were outstanding in flavor and cooked perfectly with mushroom/truffle taste really shining. There was around a 10-15min wait for our beers after ordering them which was a little confusing as all they had to do was open the bottle a give it to us.

Recommend this to anyone for lunch, haven't tried dinner there yet but assume it would be the same quality as the lunch we had. 9/10.

Cheers Dockside and First Table.

Lovely setting for the restaurant, perfectly positioned along Wellingtons waterfront with amazing sea views. The place had a very private and peaceful atmosphere which created a pleasurable environment to enjoy good food and spend time with family. The menu was a wide selection of items to suit every taste. The food lived up to expectations as it was very high quality and delicious, the dessert was also delicious. I would highly recommend the chocolate and salted caramel mouse ball which looked like a Masterchef dessert. Overall amazing food at the Dockside restaurant, my only concern for improvement would be the service which was a bit slow.

This was well worth it! A few friends and I went out for lunch and it was delicious. The service was great and the staff were incredibly friendly even chatting to us at the end of the meal. The food and the views was beautiful - the only thing that was more beautiful to look at was the check!
