Located on the corner of Victoria and Wakefield street, The Lido has been hosting Wellingtonians for nearly three decades. With its curved glass frontage and pavement seating it forms an interactive part of the bustling streetscape around it.
Our food and drink have kept constantly developing in dialogue with the people streaming through our doors. Now, more than ever, we believe in unprocessed freshness, plant-based seasonality, and sustainability in creating our food and drinks.
We are open all day, serving food and drink continuously. We invite you into share a meal, enjoy our coffee, or meet over a few drinks and nibbles.
Come, make yourself at home.

Chef-owner, Frank De Roose has spent nearly two decades behind the stoves in the Lido kitchen.
Frank grew up in Belgium, sustained by French-influenced, local Flemish cuisine; his travels soon gave him an appetite for Mediterranean and Middle Eastern food.
This developed into a special love for the vegetable cuisine of those regions, which has been apparent in his menus at the Lido and the various other cafes he has worked in.
The Lido is still the welcoming day café it has always been, and now our refurbishment presents an attractive, ambient atmosphere, continuing to be a favourite dining spot where plant-based dishes play a starring role.
....Don't fret about your old favourites, because as requested, some of our classic dishes are staying, to be joined by plenty of new choices!
