  1. Hippopotamus Restaurant & Bar


    High Tea - what a rip off. Try Marthas or Sweet Pea. The young servers are pleasant enough however if you want coffee thats extra and they won't bring you a carafe of water to the table. I estimate our table spent $500 on 4 cake stands with ten nibbles about the size of a two dollar coin each, a macaron and for some of us a cocktail. Because I don't like hot tea I was only allowed one glass of iced tea (wasn't offered a top up whilst everyone else had their cups refreshed a couple of times). Profit margin on this must be huge. No where near worth it.

    We had dined at this restaurant in Feb so I forgot the details of the food that we had, but the food was excellent and we 4 of us all enjoyed very much. It was to celebrate our daughter's birthday and she got a special little cake like thing at the end with candle on it. That was very nice surprise and thanks for the chef and the staff. The venue here is also excellent looking over the Wellington harbor. Excellent service by all the staff.

    Excellent food, excellent service - they did however run out of the speciality desert and given we were the first table to sit for lunch I thought this a bit odd - did they forget to make a new batch that morning? I was however lucky enough to get one of the remaining deserts and all I can say is that it was delicious!!!! By far the best I had eaten this year - creme brulee
