FANTASTIC outdoor seating in the garden bar, one of my favourite places in Wellington to sit and have a drink on a sunny afternoon. Indoors is very cool too. The food is okay, but they have good live music sometimes, and they do awesome mulled cider and wine in the winter.
Great for large groups both for day & evening functions in all weather. Huge garden bar with large tables that are bookable. A decent range of local beers on tap and bar snacks available too (cheerios!) - there is always something going on here throughout the week.
Beautiful food, i had the steak and it was cooked perfectly, the staff were very attentive and friendly considering it was getting quite late in the night. They have a huge cocktail menu and some great low priced cocktails. Will deffenatly be back
One of my regular haunts. The food is consistently amazing and always changing so you don't get bored. They have a great range of sweet treats in the cabinet making it possible to pop in for dessert and the amount of seating is ample. The outdoor terrace is the best part! The lighting is very funky. They also provide blankets in winter. Heaps of live music on weekends.
The best size of meat offered here for stone grill & surprisingly economical. The ambience is 5/5. The staff were 5/5 as well, very great personalities! They have food promos which are remarkable. Extremely friendly staff and drinks prices are reasonable , enjoyed a game of pool too while having drinks with friends .
This bar has a very relaxed feel about it..... from couches inside, to the outdoor setting along with hotties and outdoor heaters.... great vibe here.... the bar snack are awesome! I also love that they are group gatherings during the week that people can attend
Southern Cross is remarkably versatile. The venue is cleverly divided into sections, with a choice of settings to enjoy your coffee, dinner or catch up over a drink. But nothing compares to their beautiful outdoor area on a warm summer night. The cross hosts live gigs, and other community events, like fundraisers and holiday programs. I've even seen a group of social knitters! The staff are friendly, I'm always greeted with a smile. The food is great, and there are plenty of vegetarian options.
The service and food are not good. Waited for an hour to be served a drink and waited almost two hours to be served my streak on a fairly quiet Monday night. The staff were not apologetic when I brought this to their attention either. Not only this but when the steak did come it was very rare and even cold on the inside even though I asked for Medium. I am not pleased.
Awesome venue, with a big garden heated if want to enjoy a chilly weather out. Nice dancing floor, delicious burger, good variety of red wines. Plus always a gig on the weekend.
Also is a fantastic option for group events. Is always a place to see what's on.
