Great night. Atmosphere, view, food, staff, service all excellent. The rib eye steak 300 grams was cooked to everyone's liking, and you could tell the meat was a quality cut.

Highly recommended.
Hope you give it a try and have a great experience.

Thank Nigel S

We dined here for lunch this past week. The location is great being right on the beachside of Oriental Parade so has fantastic views.

The staff were welcoming, friendly and efficient and the food was great. I had the corn fritters with poached eggs, avocado, creme fraiche and chutney. My husband had the pancakes with bacon and both of us enjoyed our meals. We would definitely dine here again.

Amazing place and view for a nice evening drink. Great service.
But please re consider using plastic straws for the drinks. These are extremely bad for the environment, in particular when using 2 straws per drink. There was a sign claiming that Coene had banned them but obviously not. Thanks!

Hi Nancy G, thanks for taking the time to share that you had a great time with an evening drink at Coene's.

Coene's is very conscious of the environment and the impact plastic straws can have, in particular to the marine life. We are committed to not using plastic straws and we only use recyclable paper straws, which are made available upon request.

We look forward to welcoming you back.

We were looking forward to visiting this restaurant during our stop in Wellington. There was not many choices of places to eat with a water view. The selection of on tap beer is minimal. Many of the menu selections are small dishes for sharing. There is a limited few main entrèe items. Lamb burger and fries were OK, nothing special. Salad with chicken and coconut cream dressing was marginal to begin with and then turned horrible when I found a fly at the bottom of the plate mixed in with cranberries. Waitress did apologize, and took $10 off bill but that still left me gagging. In my experience this item would have been removed from the tab

Sheryl S, thank you for sharing your recent experience with us. Our aim is great customer experiences and we clearly failed to deliver. Please accept our apologies for the way this was handled, we agree that more should have been done to make amends while you were dining with us. We’d appreciate the opportunity to make this right by giving us a second chance.
