Hugo's Bistro

All-Day European-Style Bistro on Shortland Street

The new all-day bistro is bringing a sophisticated European vibe to the heart of the city.

The creators of Odettes have transformed a compact inner city space in a historic building on Shortland Street into a stunning eatery serving European classics with a modern twist. 

The space beautifully captures the bustling inner city vibe with the decor achieving a perfect balance of soft and hard textures. The Bistro's slick and warm feel offers city dwellers a respite from their everyday busyness.

Offering an 'Earlier' and 'Later' menu, Hugo's covers all your dining needs.

For a perfect start to your day, try out their morning menu. It' simply impossible to pass up on the mouthwatering coconut yogurt with steamed tamarillo and granola made from a blend of cashew, almond, hazelnut, pumpkin seeds and honey. 

In the afternoon, the second menu comes into play. Kick off your dining experience with the Meats, a starter of interchangeable meats served with pickled mushrooms, shallots and radicchio. A must try main is definitely the sirloin served with a sheet of fazzoletto pasta which translates to handkerchief from Italian, lemon, and pistou, a French variation of pesto without nuts.

You can also enjoy your meal with a glass of curated European and New Zealand wines.

A newcomer not to be missed, Hugo's Bistro will undoubtedly win your heart and taste buds.
