Won a voucher for Pier 24 a while back. Really enjoyed the meal and dessert especially. Great place for fine dining and awesome sea view.

This restaurant was very convenient as we were staying in the St. Clair Hotel there and it was raining so we didn't have to leave to get a bite to eat. The atmosphere was unique with a spectacular vista of the shoreline. Best of all was the favor of the foods we ate! Warm ciabatta bread, Rocket & Pear Salad,... More

Went there for lunch on friday the 18th with a couple colleagues and we were absolutely blown away with everything from the moment we walked in. After reading reviews we were cautious about the service we would receive but we had a lovely waitress who served us brilliantly the whole time we were there. Knowing we had to be quick... More

Went for brunch with a couple of older friends. What a lovely place. So nice and clean, and beautifully presented food. Staff were very nice, coffee great and best of all views to die for.

A very good breakfast. We had the bacon eggs benny with spinach. No gluten which was a plus. The coffee was so good. Who puts a whole Whittakers sante bar in a mocha ??

I took some business colleagues from overseas here due to its location by the beach and it's reputation. I now regret my choice. The food was very nice but the service was terrible. We ordered drinks on arrival while waiting for our final guest to arrive. The waitress came over and told us we needed to hurry up and order... More

Visited Pier 24 for a lunch date with my wife. Staff were inviting and friendly. WE sat next to the front window with amazing views of the beach and ocean. We ordered venison burgers which were so damn good we came back a few weeks later to have them again!! The rest of the food being served looked very appetizing... More

We treated ourselves to a meal here on a trip to the area. We ate early and the restaurant was fairly quiet but the food was truly tasty and beautifully presented. Staff were friendly and attentive. There's a good view from the window and it's fun to watch the world go by. Would definitely return.

The top end of dining. With superb views out to sea, this is a great place to visit. We had the eggs Benedict and it was delicious. Lovely presentation and even better tasting. Bacon was some of the best I've had and the sauce was creamy and delightful. The staff were really friendly and speed of service and big smiles... More

Offering everything from sunrise breakfasts to casual coffee to superb lunches and evening dinning. Modern day cuisine inspired by our regional pantry. Bookings are recommended to avoid disappointment. It's easy to see why Pier 24 has the best views and location in Dunedin. On a summer day the doors can be fully opened turning the restaurant into a coastal alfresco dinning experience. In the winter months sit warm and cosy behind double glazed windows watching winter storms batter the coast.
