Loved the old style building and exposed brick interiors. Food was rich and complex,which we both loved. Had a pasta and a steak meal and both were amazing, but the highlight was the flambé chocolate dessert!

Good welcoming service, a good selection of beer and good steak. On the other hand my daughter's risotto was not very creamy - I think the ratio of rice to beetroot and other ingredient was not right - too little rice. Not bad but not a great risotto. Overall good though.

We visited here on a busy Saturday evening and although the restaurant was busy our table was served excellently by our hostess who explained the meal in great detail, good selection of wine and an excellent varied menu - all four of our meals were devoured by us all - without doubt the best meal we had in Dunedin during...

When it comes to Grabone Coupons, it's the best way to visit a Rest. you haven't visited before & try it out, but when you come across a great Rest. with ambiance & great food you just want to keep going back without the Grabone Coupon. This little Rest. has it. the food is well cooked & very tasteful. I... More

Went with a friend for dinner and was disappointed with the four and service, it was busy and it could have been the staff were under pressure, the portions are very big so it is value for money but it lacks flavour, my pasta was overlooked and the sauce was not nice, the steak meal was just ok as per...

Four ex-workmates getting together for the first time in four years. Happy days. Nice outdoor setting perfect for early evening drinks in March (Yes, outside in Dunedin after 6pm in March!). Reasonable prices, good service. A good spot. 1664.

Midweek early evening visit, no reservation but no problem. Really good service, and food superb. We shared the dipping breads starter - four different dips plus oil and balsamic. But then. J had the mushroom pasta, I had the prawns, chorizo and chill. Both truly superb. Don't miss.

Thank DavidD4204
