We found ourselves in Dunedin a day earlier than anticipated (and by chance on our 12th anniversary). We looked at a few reviews and quickly settled on Gaslight. The food was superb, the service was great and the atmosphere was cozy and cool. Highly recommend the Kraken Risotto and the Zucca Gnocchi. The creme brûlée is as good as other... More

Food and service was excellent! The mocktails were lovely & great wine list! Desserts were fantastic. There was a very noisy table that kept singing very loudly all night and unfortunately they were not asked to keep it down as would be expected for a restaurant of this high calibre!

Such amazing food and beautiful atmosphere made our date night perfect! I ordered the goats cheese soufflé which was extraordinary, even the roasted vegetables and salad on the side were delicious! And my partner got the steak which was the best he's had in Dunedin. We even squeezed in dessert which was just as good! Thanks so much, we will... More

Located in a great central city location in an architecturally interesting building first impressions were impressive. Gaslight has created a wonderful ambiance at a minimal expenditure which makes it all the more remarkable. We arrived without a booking on a fairly busy night but the staff coped well and made up a table to accommodate us. Staff service was excellent,... More

Great ambience in this place. Right near the centre of the city and has a great wine bar feel about it. Wines were reasonably priced with a good Central Otago Pinot Noir available by the glass.

We visited as part of a wedding so we had the place booked out. It was lovely for our needs (a wedding/reception with 50 guests). I'm generally not a fan of a set menu as it can be hit or miss but the staff did a fantastic job everything was insanely delicious. The staff were kind and attentive but not... More
