Southern Cross is a large bar and restaurant that encompasses everything a customer would want from a night out, all in the one location.

Near the entrance to Southern is a beautifully decorated restaurant available for lunch or dinner. Take a step further inside and depending on the hour, you could be serenaded by a live band, coerced into a game of pool, or taken for a boogie on the dance-floor. Continue on outside and you will understand what all the locals have been talking about, the huge garden bar complete with giant jenga, lanterns, heaters, blankets and hot water bottles.

It is good

Awesome vibe, outdoor area and games

I love the great location close to the heart of Welly, the super bar and restaurant, and the unbelievably retro look it has now. Its clean, has variety of fun and affordable events during the week and I love the absence of pokie machines and TAB. It is child friendly and something I don't find anywhere is each section of the Southern Cross Bar & Restaurant caters to whatever mood I am in when I enter this fine establishment. Cheers to the owners, regulars and kitchen staff especially

Great food and outside area

Great atmosphere good food and decent range of beer!

My 2nd fave spot to eat in Wellington. The atmosphere is great, the ambience so lively & the food is amazing. Not to mention their prices are superb too! I have high standards when it comes to eating out in Wgtn & this is your go to place!


Wednesday night Kroon for your Kai - an opportunity for local musicians to strut their material to a live crowd: Here is AJ Crawshaw Band ending the night: get their single on ITunes they are amazing!!

Food looks amazing!

Got everything me, little one and husband need - good baby changing facilities, high chairs, friendly staff who welcome families and babies, great coffee, beer and food. Lots of activities for all ages at The Cross
