“Excellent little cafe and wine bar!”
Reviewed 23 March 2014 via mobile

This lovely little cafe in Dunedin is just delightful....relaxed, quirky atmosphere. Beautiful homemade pasta with yummy sauces (highly recommend the beef ragout) and delicious desserts. The wine list is extensive and the head waiter clearly knew how to recommend a good wine. Great find!

“Great pasta”
Reviewed 16 March 2014 via mobile

Was at Gaslight last week. I had a large Carbonara and the Mrs had a medium Field of fungi pasta. The carbonara was simply outstanding, very very rich with lots of top quality bacon. Field of fungi was great too, loads of mushrooms. Freshly made pasta that was in my opinion perfect. I will happily come back to Gaslight again and again. Well priced too.

“Definitely a lovely place for a meal”
Reviewed 10 March 2014

A casual but comfortable and friendly atmosphere. The food was fantastic - beautifully prepared, with wonderful and creative flavors. The owner will personally recommend the perfect wine to go with your meal. The service is very good and the staff is friendly and helpful. I was visiting from the U.S. and would definitely recommend the Gaslight Cafe.

“Great wee Cafe”
Reviewed 8 March 2014

Wandering around, looking for a place for dinner, it's worth hunting for the front door to this place.
Helpful, knowledgeable staff but not obtrusive. Good food, good service. We walked in on a week-night, probably worth booking on the weekend. One of the best meals we had during our visit to NZ.

“Enjoyable, tasty meal”
Reviewed 28 February 2014 via mobile

Enjoyable tasty meal, pleasant ambience, good service. We enjoyed a cardrona lamb risotto with mushroom and thyme, and a duck leg confit with a herby sausage cassoulet, cost of around $55
