Bookings

Take in views of the stunning Wellington harbour while treating your taste buds to beautifully presented fine French cuisine. Your experience is completed by the opulent surroundings of the Museum Art Hotel with its private collection of original artwork. Situated over the road from the harbour, the Museum Art Hotel is close to Wellington’s exciting and vibrant activity centers. Hippopotamus Restaurant and Cocktail Bar is the perfect choice to commence, or complete, a night out with friends.

Hippopotamus Restaurant and Cocktail Bar has been closed from Thursday 7 July and is due to reopen Monday 1 August from 5.30pm for dinner service. Until Monday 1 August, for our hotel guests we will continue to serve breakfast daily from our Tamburini room which is located on the ground level of the Hotel. An in-room dining menu with a selection of bar snacks and platter options will remain available. We apologise for disappointment caused during this time and we look forward to welcoming you back to your favourite dishes very soon!

Hippopotamus restaurant and cocktail is fully-licensed.
