Cuisine: A La Carte, Cafe, New Zealand
Price Point: Mains from $15 - $30

A stone's throw away from Wellington's iconic Te Papa, Joe's Garage is a family-friendly restaurant in the centre of the capital.

It's the perfect place to unwind after a day in the bustling city. Its canteen vibes instantly give it that chill factor and with a long table and bar stools lining the middle of the dining area, you might even make some new pals! But first, let's befriend the menu.

It offers honest, hearty grub and some delicious meaty mains. Try their take on pork belly with slaw and mash or go for a chicken dish that comes with couscous and salad. The cheeky Joe is a soul-warming beef cheek hotpot while the lamb patty with pita and yoghurt is a scrummy taste of Morocco. Vegetarians can take their pick from the pizza menu.

Accompany your mammoth meal with a refreshing beer; household brands can be found on draught or by the bottle. Alternatively, keep it kid-friendly with a milkshake or a cold pressed juice.

It was a miserable night and we arrived at Joe's where it was warm and cosy, good music and just a really nice 'vibe'. Our table was already named for us!! Food was excellent and the service great, and all done with lovely friendly smiles. Made for a special night.

Greeted by a warm and friendly welcome the moment we walked through the door. Joe's Garage staff were super attentive, particularly with the children and their table service was exemplary.

Our meals were first rate and heartily consumed by one and all aka no leftovers!! My compliments went to the chef who delivered a perfect medium rare steak.

I definitely recommend Joe's Garage as a superb family dining experience.

My husband and I went to Joe’s garage for dinner on Friday night. We both really enjoyed our meals and I have to say they were generous size serves. The staff were friendly and checked back with us to make sure we were happy with our meals and to make sure there was nothing else we needed. We will have to go back to this restaurant as there were other delicious sounding meals advertised on the menu that we would like to try. We would definitely recommend this restaurant to others.

Great menu and service from staff. Love the booths and the addition of the colouring paper to entertain the kids instead of devices. Food was great with the exception of the milkshake was subpar for the cost. Would return again!

The salmon was quite oily that we ordered and made the dish to heavy. Also, we ordered pork belly and it was very dry and not all to juicy.

Wonderful being able to come here for dinner as they have been around for many years and heard great things, but was never able to get in during the day. It was worth the wait, the food was delicious and couldn't fault the service. Highly recommend thank you for helping to make my birthday dinner very memorable.

This was a very pleasant dining experience. The service was friendly, helpful and welcoming. The food
was as expected just great kiwi kai. The low carb option for the hamburger was particularly enjoyable.
