Basque is based on the eating and drinking style of Northern Spain with its streets of bustling tapas bars. We offer an array of non-veg, vegetarian, gluten free and some vegan on request mouthwatering tapas and homemade pizzas, which are designed to complement the range of 12 craft tap beers and ciders, (and another five taps on the rooftop bar), imported Spanish and local wines and our extensive sangria menu. Grab a carafe of sangria, plonk on the rooftop, and watch Courtenay Place pass by beneath you.

Went for a meal before the Theatre and had a great selection of tapas for two which was accompanied by a good wine (recommended by the the staff). The restaurant/bar has a good ambience and set out right for a nice relaxing meal in a...More
Shared 4 tapas plates among 3 of us - veg, spicy calamari, serrano ham - and enjoyed them all, followed by a plate of chilli chocolate truffles. Our waiter was excellent - friendly and attentive. A very cold and windy night in Wellington so we...More
