This Wellington icon is set in a charming Victorian cottage, serving modern fare alongside classic bistro dishes.
In celebration of reaching 30, Boulcott Street Bistro will do what it does best, the long lunch. Spend an afternoon celebrating some of our most loved dishes from the past three decades, and share a table with us as we welcome back former heroes of the kitchen and front of house personalities and pay tribute to some of our favourite wines from the past 30 years. Bottles will be popping from midday and guests will be dining at large shared tables.

Sitting in the historic Plimmer House, Boulcott Street Bistro celebrates 30 years with a nod to the house's namesake, John Plimmer.
