About Arbitrageur Wine Room and Restaurant
Nestled in the heart of the Wellington CBD, Arbitrageur Wine Room and Restaurant is a taste of Europe on your door step. Located within walking distance of many of Wellington's hotels, Arbitrageur is the ideal place to begin (and end) your weekend away. A fine dining experience without the price tag, the elegant setting is suitable for business lunches and dinners, after work drinks and tapas, or a romantic evening out. Our ground breaking Avec Menu allows you to indulge your senses with stunning wines from the cellar, matched with dishes influenced by the Mediterranean in this European style wine room and restaurant. Wellington's inaugural Oyster bar opened at Arbitrageur on 1st December 2010. Choose from our mouth watering display of fresh seafood including octopus ceviche, grilled langoustine,and New Zealand scallops and oysters shucked to order. A perfect accompaniment to a glass of Champagne or one of our many delicious but lesser known wine varietals. Our wine program marries tradition with discovery and exploration but what really sets us apart is our selection process. Everything on our list is either of great quality or great value and has been hand selected by inhouse wine expert Stephen Wong. That said, it is not a small list; the cellar exceeds 450 labels (with 85 wines available by the glass). "One of the most outstanding restaurant wine lists in the world"- Wine Spectator Magazine 2005 and 2010Arbitrageur is also a unique space to hold an event, catering for stylised events at the weekends such as weddings, birthday parties, corporate dinners, launches and pre-sporting event lunches. Our staff are professional, friendly and well versed on wine and food.The room is able to seat eighty people for a sit down meal and can hold up to one hundered people standing for a cocktail evening. The room is equally suitable to cater for smaller groups of around forty people.To discuss events further, please contact us to view the venue and discuss possible options.

Loved it, great food, brilliant wine list, service is professional and unobtrusive and generally very knowledgeable but not "in your face", ie they are there for you not you for them. Ambience suits romance or business and you can think, talk and enjoy without shouting over the din that is so common in some places. Would recommend

There was no one to seat us at the front of restaurant when we came in, but that was overshadowed by the beautiful food and knowledgeable helpful staff.

An excellent dining experience - a beautiful dining space away the hustle and bustle of Lambton Quay. I really enjoyed the fabulous fish dish and my partner was very pleased with the steak. The knowledgable waitstaff, who delivered efficient and friendly hospitality, stand out as some of the best service I have experienced.

Describe our evening at Arbitrageur: well, I'd say it's a beautiful and busy restaurant with a very impressive wine list. Loved the Duck Leg main with lentils and root veges. Delicious! Recommend 5 star.

They had wonderful service, great food and beautiful wine. The atmosphere was warm and welcoming and the music, jazzy and old school classy. I highly recommend Arbitrageur to anyone who wants to enjoy an outstanding restaurant.
