Fine dining & entertainment, all at sea!

Sunday 22 August | 5pm until late

They say stranger things happen at sea - and that will definitely be true during this year's Visa Wellington On a Plate when we'll be pushing the boat out with a Golden Age dining cruise. 

While Wellington's finest restaurants will create their take on this year's "Out of Place" theme by using curiously misfitting ingredients, here at Interislander we'll be taking a whole restaurant out of place. 

On Sunday 22 August 2021, under the guidance of culinary captain, Shepherd Elliot, we'll be sailing away with Shepherd, one of Wellington's premier restaurants, on a voyage into Visa WOAP history!

Haute Cruisine 

With chef Shepherd at the helm alongside our experienced culinary crew, our one-off nautical adventure will set sail around Wellington Harbour for an evening of 'haute cruisine'. 

Some of the dishes you can expect to catch on the day include:

Paua croqette

Crayfish club sandwiches

Salmon nicoise

Beef Wellington

Ice cream sandwich


Sailing back to the Golden Age 

It isn't just the food that will be out of place on our Visa Wellington On a Plate event cruise.

Shepherd At Sea will voyage back to the Golden Age of travel, with passengers perambulating the decks with classic cocktails in hand, feasting on canapes, including prawn cocktails and our very own sausage rolls, with the backdrop of live music. Dinner will then be served in the aptly named Ocean View restaurant.

When you disembark at Aotea Quay at the end of the evening, you will certainly have some tales to tell.
