Pōneke is located on Wellington’s beautiful waterfront on Clyde Quay wharf. Enjoy a selection of local wines and craft beer with an ever-changing menu inspired by Greek and Mediterranean influences. This space is drenched with sunshine on a good day in Welly. Our social sharing plates are perfect for long lunches and after-work drinks. The area is also ideal for function; the full space can be hired or, for smaller events, we can offer a semi-private space in the back. Email us to find out how we can host an event for you!

The word Pōneke name reflects the name of Wellington Harbour; originally named Port Nicholson in 1826, early sailors and settlers shortened this to Port Nick. To the local Māori, the harbour became known as Pōneke.

At 19, I fell in love with the hospitality industry while working as a hotel porter and valet. Food & beverage has been the main adventure, learning both kitchen and front of house. Every day is different and meeting people from all walks of life from all over the world fascinates me.

When I am not working you will find me cooking up a storm — learning different recipes and adapting my mum’s current recipes.
