Cuisine: Mediterranean, New Zealand
Price Point: Mains from $15 - $25

On Wellington's iconic Courtney Place lies a secret. Hidden within the newly opened Oaks Hotel is Oak & Vine, a classy establishment specialising in the colourful fusion of Mediterranean and modern Kiwi cuisine.

Watch the hustle and bustle of Wellington's busiest streets from a few floors above. Their contemporary restaurant is decked out with comfortable seating, minimalist décor and futuristic lighting.

Whatever your preferred dining style, the menu has all bases covered. Kick off with some signature starters, like the salmon pizza, littleneck clams and tarakihi oka. If you want a dish all to yourself, there's a hearty lamb parpardelle, rigatone carbonara with smoky pork cheek and a majestic confit duck lasagne. We were left wondering why it hasn't been done before!

If you're in the sharing mood, order in lamb shoulder that's been cooking low and slow for an incredible 12 hours. Just imagine the flavour! And with local beers streaming from the taps and classic cocktails being shaken and stirred all over the shop, Oak & Vine is where all good nights begin.

We really enjoyed our meal at Oak & Vine. We had the lamb shoulder and it was great; tasty and very tender. Also yummy potatoes and jus, with whole beans and roasted vine tomatoes. The chef even came and checked on us to get feedback; great attention to detail. Staff were very attentive and friendly and couldn't do enough for us. Also very comfortable chairs! We will definitely dine here again.

Wonderful new arrival on Wellington hospitality scene. Well worth checking out the beautiful food and the birds eye view. The slow cooked lamb shoulder was without a doubt the best lamb dish any of us has eaten! Service friendly and helpful. Great to speak to the chef. Staff Christmas party confirmed that this establishment is taking on the old guard with outstanding people committed to treat their guests to the best a hotel can offer. Thanks for a most enjoyable evening. We shall be back for sure!

Took a while to find the place, but It was a pleasant surprise to dine at the Oaks. We ate tapas-style, and each dish was prepared with a deft touch by the chef. Attentive service and reasonably priced wine list.

Great experience at the Oak & Vine. Amazing food and customer service Veron was the girl who explained to us the menu and she gave us really good recommendations of starts and desserts *OMG*, thank you for that. The highlight of the night was the service and the food (beetroot hummus with flat bread, slow cooked lamb with duck fat potatoes YUUUUM, brownie pecan and apple dessert YUUUUM again). :)

Was a special meal. Salmon pizza as a starter delicious! Steak cooked perfectly with amazing sauce. No room for desert. Lovely drinks menu too. Service was friendly a food came out promptly. Definitely recommend!

We had an ok meal at Oak & Vine. We ordered 3 things - Lamb Parpardelle, Duck Lasagna and Crispy Eggplant. The lamb was delicious on the first few bites but we found it was too rich by the end and didn’t end up finishing it. The duck lasagna was an interesting thought but neither of us enjoyed it much. The crispy eggplant was a surprising highlight and definitely worth ordering

The lamb shoulder for two is to die for- I highly recommend. It was very reasonably priced and I would happily pay full price for it. We shared a charcuterie platter first and it was great value for money. The chef also gave us a slice of pizza each to try which was delicious. It would have been a perfect experience if our charcuterie platter came out a little earlier leaving time to digest before the lamb arrived but that was the only issue for which the waiter apologised.

The young waiter who served was very polite and had some great banter!

The rockmelon and prosciutto starter was my favourite, it was lite and tasty. My main I had the lamp ragout- it was slightly on the salty side however the flavours were nice!

My vegan friend did not like her dishes so much. The vege burger pattie lacked flavour!

The taste of the food was alright but the presentation was great. My friend and I ordered the steak, pasta and kumara fries. It was a feast for your eyes. The manager seemed a bit stressed but was polite overall. The decor was really modern and the restaurant itself was rather quiet in the midst of the city. Would go again xx

Check out the awesome photos taken by friend!

We initially found it hard to find as it is not clearly sign posted and within a hotel but even though we were a few minutes late they were welcoming. The service was over the top nice. They have only been open a very small while so were very eager to please - asking for feedback about everything. The food was good but if we weren't paying FirstTable prices would've been too pricey for the small portions. The taro chips were a stand out.
