We came here at the last evening from our honeymoon and expected a nice dinner. The setting and interior where cosy and the waiter was very friendly. The wine also was good. We choose to start with a plate with various cheeses and meats as a starter. This was the moment where we start to realise that this may be... More

The place is nice and welcoming. The staff is kind and helpful. Unfortunately the food was mediocre. The idea of laying the confit duck on a bed of vegetables cooked in a tomato sauce is still making me cringe. The antipasto platter was nice

The pasta was good. Happy hour from 5-6 was great ($2 off beer and wine). Reasonably priced. Good service. There is no children's menu though.

6 year old restaurant with lots of character, both the building and the waiter. There would be good to have a fire place inside the house. Everything else is perfect. They serve both Italian and French menu. We had steak from the French menu. Medium well came up almost as well done. Starter duck liver, not as condensed as what... More

Beautiful food, served in gigantic portions. We shared bread and dips to start - one portion was more than enough for three of us. Home made dips were delicious. Mains all excellent too, and equally large by portion, Staff helpful and friendly.

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!
