Tucked away in the heart of Newtown in Wellington is the little restaurant, Margot. Inspired by European wine bars, the seasonal menu celebrates organic New Zealand produce in rustic European cuisine. 

Margot's space takes influence from the wine bars that owners Tom and Juno have experienced on their travels, making you feel like you’re on a holiday in Europe, yet right at home. Instilling this homeliness and approachability, they know well the importance of cultivating a great culture from the start, personifying Margot as welcoming, generous and kind - she’ll look after you.

With a personality of her own, Margot caters for a range of diets and preferences. Whether it's a drink or two you’re after, a small bite or a feast; she can do it all, proudly providing classic yet dynamic food and drink. And it doesn’t have to stop here. Your night in Newtown can begin with a drink at Next Door before your meal at Margot and then topped off by a nightcap at their neighbours, Auntie Social. 

Margot is the perfect spot for a date, a time to celebrate, or just a simple catchup with a mate, so go see what Newtown has to offer and let Margot be your starting point. Margot is a little local and you’re all welcome!
