Had breakfast here this week with the family on a trip to the south of NZ. Venue had great views and a decent breakfast vibe. Wasn't too busy, and the service staff were friendly and inviting. I had the poached eggs, which were cooked perfectly, unfortunately found a fair bit of shell. Partner and dad had the omelette which they... More

The service was good. We both ordered the chicken meal and when it arrived we both started realising that there was hard noodles that were like fish bones and stuck in your throat. Both of us experienced discomfort because of this and complained to our waitress. She investigated this with the chef and we were told that these were deep... More

We had a nice lunch here today enjoyed the view and the duck liver parfait was beautiful and the highlight. Just a few pain points around service. Not being given a drinks menu but then asking for our order for mains... hang on love I'd like a drink first. Then we had to ask what the soup and the fish... More

Don't go there if you have special dietary requirements, they weren't able to cater! Could have killed someone if it'd been an allergy. Lovely setting with sea right there. Service friendly but inefficient, not up to scratch for the five star rating they give themselves - empties piled up at end of table, had to keep asking for more water... More

The surf was up so it was fascinating to watch the dozens of surfers ride some very big waves whilst enjoying a nice meal. If this restaurant was in the city it would just have been a pleasant meal but the view made it a memorable experience.

I have been to Pier 24 on a couple of occasions while visiting Dunedin. This last time was a bit disappointing. I had booked a table and did request by the window which unfortunately our table was not. We weren't greeted on arrival then when we did sit down it took 20 minutes for our drinks to arrive. I must... More

In the past Pier 24 stood above the rest with delicious meals and top quality service, it has been a while since we have been but they seemed to have really dropped the ball. The best thing was the squid entree, the rest was a bit lackluster, especially for the price tag, though my husband did comment that the meal... More

About a year ago this top-rated restaurant changed hands; it has changed for the better! We were fortunate to be taken without a reservation, the staff were very competent and welcoming, the ambience is really something, particularly if you are lucky enough to be seated at the window where the South Pacific Ocean is right at hand. As far as... More

Enjoyed an unusual but now highly recommended breakfast choice at Pier 24 a week ago. Listed as I think "Egg on Smashed Avocado", it consisted of a small egg omelette on top of crushed avocado on top of a single piece of ciabatta. There were some other lovely vegetable items on top too which made the whole thing very delicious.... More

Our first time at pier 24 and the food was beauitful. The service was friendly and the atmosphere relaxing. Decided to go to Pier 24 on a whim with my husband and 7 month old. I was a bit worried about taking our 7 month old to a fine dining restaurant, but we were warmly greeted and accomodated. We ordered... 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.
