Great service! Good wine list and the best steak!

I love that Rex Morgan is a Maori! Haha, their menu is amazing and even their coffee is good!

Pages and pages of wine to match with scrumptious, well-crafted menu options. Drink it by the glass or by the bottle, with dozens of cellared options. Boulcott St Bistro will definitely impress.

This cosy bistro always puts on a good night of decedent dining.

For years I thought 'I love the look of that little place, it looks so quaint' finally a few years passed and thanks to Wellington on a plate, I went for a fancy schmancy lunch with a friend. Oh my what a delight. So if you are looking for something a little spech that will have you leaving feeling a little posher* than when you arrived, this is a place to try out.    *Disclaimer: if you are already posh, this may not work for you.

Situated in the sweetest little heritage building amongst a pile of commercial buildings, Boulcott St Bistro serves up good old traditional food, and has been doing so for over 20 years. They’re open for lunch to cater for the businesses around it, but the dinner menu is where you’ll really get a taste for the place. It’s super cosy, with a lovely bar, and serves up classic but comfortable fare – blood pudding, ox cheek, lamb shanks, and all those yummy things. They do wonderful home­made pasta, and the desserts are beautiful.
