Thank you Whitby Restaurant, My family, friends and I had a wonderful time celebrating my husband and mine 60th birthday together, 20th wedding anniversary and daughter's 30th birthday. The pre Christmas menu theme suited the winter night, especially the christmas crackers. Service was excellent, replenishing dishes was on going, removing plates from tables was constant - no clutter on table. Placing such a large number of people in the room meant we had a semi private function. Communication was on going by the staff before the event, so we had no miss haps. Would book again for any occasion. Thank you very much for a memorable evening.

Done booking online, and I've got a text confirmation, when we arrived nothing showing at the front desk, too much expensive but not enough food

Food was ok except the beef was tough as boots. Also there was only one cheese on the cheeseboard by the time we went for dessert.

Handled allergy concerns really well, phoning me and providing safe and yummy substitutions. The waiter was clear, knowledgeable, remembering to point out the substitutions and generally pleasant. He also took great photos of the family and high tea for us by his own initiative.

Enjoyed our time, staff was friendly and easy to communicate with about booking. Thank you, I highly recommend Whiby's Restaurant & Bar for Buffet food. Reasonably price also.

Whitby's is a great Buffet restaurant, so consistent with super friendly and helpful staff. We always go to Whitby's when in Wellington (we're from Christchurch). For a special treat try the High Tea... just sit back and relax and enjoy the yummy food!
