About Salty Pidgin

Only a 5-minute drive from Central Wellington, Salty Pidgin is a corner slice of paradise. Quality-driven and food-focused, this is the spot for serious eaters, equally enjoyed by those who appreciate a glass by the open fire. Peruse the award-winning wine list and revolving international and local beer taps before landing on a new selection that may just turn into a favourite. The menu uses seasonal produce, boasting only the best to elevate your dining experience, but as a taster expect dishes such as duck liver parfait, crumbed ox tongue, shaved lamb shoulder pides, and walnut brown butter risotto.

The wine menu is one of the best in Wellington and the food is delicious. I am a regular and have never had anything other than a five star experience. The service is always warm and friendly. You are made to feel as though you are in someone’s home.

Great visit to the Pidgin yet again. Has the perfect vibe of gastro quality/fun local. No dish disappointed. Only the rush away to make the movie! :)

We had a 25k drive and it was well worth it. Friendly staff and a pleasant atmosphere. Knowledgeable staff and even more importantly the confidence to call in another person for an expert opinion on the wine choice. We found the menu and wine list interesting and overall we felt we got very nice food and drink and it was very good value for money.

The upper dining area was a bit chilly. Might need a heater when it’s a southerly....

My husband and I treat ourselves to a meal (date night) at Salty Pidgin once or twice a month. The service is always welcoming and helpful. The environment is sophisticated but not stuffy and the food is extremely good - beautifully presented, tasty and celebrates great NZ produce.

We love coming here, the staff are so friendly yet also very professional. The food is always delicious, we are vegetarians and find plenty on the menu to keep us going. Interior is extremely clean and the ambience is perfect day and night - very cosy and relaxing. Thank you Salty!
