Two Souls looks like your average small bar, but the food is top-notch. Just as well I booked, because it filled up while we were there and they had to turn customers away. In Welly, with its plethora of restaurants, that's something. Staff were very attentive, helpful and friendly. I ordered the Cajun blackened fish; wife had the beef tornado... More

Three of us went to dine here on the recommendation of others - and we loved it. The food was superb - from entrees to dessert. It was beautifully presented and generous - and we all loved what we ordered. The service was friendly and the atmosphere was lovely. We will definitely be going back.

We walked to the restaurant in gale wind and horizontal rain. When we opened the door the staff rushed to great us and take our coats. Seemed like we had found a very welcoming shelter from the storm. My husband enjoyed his cajun fish dish and my seafood and pasta dish was what I expected - ie no surprises good... More

We stumbled across this place as it was in the Entertainment Book and I'm always looking for a bargain ;) Anyway, the place was great. The food was lovely, it was not overly complicated food but presented beautifully and a menu that catered for everyone. My partner had the chicken livers as an entree and the beef medallions which he... More

I had heard about this restaurant through friends so thought it was time to visit. OMG the food was delicious! Everyone in our group enjoyed their food, especially two of us who had the beef medallion with potato gratin. It was 10/10 and I'm definitely going back to have it again! The service was fabulous and they just couldn't do... More

One of the hidden gems of Wellington. This restaurant really surprised us. Since in welcome time, following by the taste of the dishes and the constant receptivity of the waitresses left us very comfortable.The menu is quite sophisticated, but the food is very tasty. If you are in Wellington, this is THE PLACE!

During my recent 3 week trip to Wellington, I finally got round to trying Two Souls (down the street from where I was staying) on my last night. Such a shame, as it was a great meal. Food was definitely better than its 'bistro' tagline suggest. Chicken livers to start was perfectly cooked (no chalkiness) and delicious in its port... More

Enjoyed our meal very much (4 of us). Great friendly service. Mains $22-$35 ish. I would say it was more fine dining than bistro. My only comment was I didn't think atmosphere and decor were great and wouldn't recommend here as a couple having intimate dinner. Better as a group/family dining experience.

A group of us went here for dinner last Saturday night. They were really busy however the service was very impressive - they were attentive and made sure we were well looked after so definately a credit to the restaurant. Food was pretty good although the portion size on the Cajun fish was smaller than what I would think is... More
