If you have an old car to dispose, visit this place to get cool inspiration! And the food is yummy. Love the Green Ivy, mussels with Thai style sauce. Friendly and helpful staff too. Absolutely delightful place to chill

This is not your normal lounge bar / restaurant. You order at the bar and are expected to collect your food from there but in reality I found all our food delivered to the table (they weren't overly busy). You are then asked to deposit your dishes at a designated point. All this must keep the costs down successfully as it is very cheap and allows you to focus on the brilliant NZ mussel focused dishes and the amazing decore. It is a pretty unique place that we enjoyed immensely, it was great for a light meal and a complete change of pace as a venue.

Really yummy mussels! They were super fresh, came out hot and ready to devour. Bear in mind there are only 5 to a plate at $10 each so it’s a tad bit on the darer side in terms of value for money but it is served up to you all ready to go. The flavor combos are yummy and we tried the Anchovy + Caper butter and the Spanish Tom. Both were good but definitely liked the Anchovy + Caper butter as it really complimented the mussels.

Give it a try because you won’t regret it anyway!

After tasting green shell mussel at Picton, we missed them a lot. So we found to visit this mussel bar when we first arrived Wellington. The mussels here really from the Marlborough Sound taste fresh. We tasted different sauces which the one with tamarind are delicious! But I like natural mussel with lemon wedge only. Mussel chowder is yummy.....
