Great atmosphere with friendly staff. Great menu, very hard to choose what to get. food is delicious. Will definitely return next time I visit Wellington. Busy wee spot and you may end up sharing a table if you are seated outside but that's fine, all part of the atmosphere.
Their Cheese scones, muffins and Brioche are the best. Freshly baked and if you are in early enough -still warm. Its a busy place and a bit of a tight squeeze at times but usually worth it. The atmosphere is pretty cool with the funky Cuban decor and sometimes jazzy music playing in the background.
I first fell in love with Fidels in 2001 when I went there for the first time and had the mushrooms and spinach on toast. No trip to Wellington is complete without a visit. I wish I could review something else on the menu, but I can NEVER go past the mushrooms. Coffee is Wellington-good and as for a few comments about wait times, who cares? The food is TOTALLY worth it. Apparently the date scones are heavenly.
I have been coming to Fidels for just over a year now and can happily say I have never left unsatisfied. I absolutely love the food and beverages Fidels has to offer and they are always delivered to an exceptional standard. The staff give off a great energy and provide you with excellent service. Barley a week goes by without a visit to Fidels !
