Cuisine: Bistro, Pizza
Price Point: Mains from $25 - $35+

Part of the Hataitai furniture since the 1930’s, Realm Bar and Bistro stakes a claim as one of Wellington’s best locals.

The suburban bar and restaurant on Moxham Avenue is open seven days a week. The restaurant is located at the back of the building and is a large and airy space with big windows, a sunny outdoor area and a roaring fire in winter.

Relax in the warm and inviting atmosphere and try one of Realm Bar’s great pizzas, or select something from the a la carte menu. Locals love the generous portions and excellent customer service.

Ideal for drinks and dinner with a group of friends or family. Make a night of it and chill out with friends in Liars Bar, at the front of the building after your meal.

When we got there the barman was very friendly and hospitable. He knew the beer and wine list off by heart as well but offered to get a menu if he couldn't help out. For entree we share halloumi chips with mint yogurt - it was a good amount and they were not oily and dripping in fat which made them delicious. For mains we had chicken schnitzel which was nicely crumbled, good flavour and very tender, the jus was fantastic as well. We also had pork belly which was very tender and well cooked, root vegetable mash was awesome and the gravy added extra flavor. Only downside was the skin was soft and hadn't crackled. Desert we shared the cheese cake. It was baked in house and was caramel flavour. It was so good I wanted to order another but was far too full by the end of it. Portion sizes we great and all staff very friendly.

If you’re looking for somewhere with a lively atmosphere accompanied by great food, look no further than Haitaitai’s lil gem (and secret), The Realm. Would recommend and go back!

The food and atmosphere were amazing :) we sat under a skylight and could watch the weather as we ate. The food was full of flavour and cooked perfectly definitely recommend the salmon or the chicken burger

We had a great time at the Realm! Our waitress and barmaid were friendly and attentive. The chef was smiley and friendly, even though he was always busy! It's cool how the public can see his cooking area, It was a lovely, relaxed atmosphere and the food was great! The make your own burgers option with as many extras as you can fit in was awesome, and everything was cooked perfectly. Finally someone who cooks halloumi well! Even the salad was unique and delicious. Well done Realm, thank you for a great birthday dinner.

Our family of four thoroughly enjoyed our meals and desserts at The realm, a comfortable and relaxed setting upstairs that separated the bar and restaurant. The staff were very friendly and helpful and are excellent at their positions. The bathrooms have been upgraded since I was last here, this is much appreciated! Overall we had a wonderful time celebrating our 3rd wedding anniversary at The Realm, thank you to all the kitchen and bar staff for everything you do!

The Realm combines the pub experience with great dining. The Steak was cooked to perfection and our daughter loved the dessert, an overall enjoyable experience and meal. We will be dining there again.

Good sized portions and hearty food. Restaurant/sports bar setting. Has kids menu with kids desert. Can get busy when there is a big rugby game on as there is a big projected screen of sports on one wall. Staff are friendly and easy going. Its a great village pub. Food is simplistic but well constructed, eg Steak, pork belly, pizza, etc.

A great neighbourhood pub and the food has improved 10 fold from a few years back - under rated and well worth a visit. The staff looked after us extremely well
