“Good family meal”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 December 2013 via mobile

Being close we thought we would pop up for tea with the family. The atmosphere and view was good and the service was excellent. The meals were a good size and really tasty. Not much for the kids to do now but had a good night.

“Disappointing”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 September 2013

Being the closest restaurant to our home we thought we should support it. We have been now on three occasions and each one extremely disappointing. We have been on a week night and ordered the $10 and $15 special of the evening. We ordered steak on the last occasion. It arrived sitting on a pile of chips, no salad, no steak knives offered, no water offered. The restaurant was very comfortably warm and we had a window seat to enjoy the outlook. However there are other neighbourhood taverns in Dunedin, which I will not name, who offer a better selection of meals which are of a much higher quality for the same price.

“Gone upmarket”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 August 2013

Our first choice for dinner fell through so we decided to go here for old times sake- we used to bring our children when they were young and could play in the ball pit while we waited for dinner. There has since been a re-vamp and the ball pit has gone. It looks very smart and the gas fires are good on a winters night. Spacious and comfortable and the service was prompt and very friendly and efficient.
The prices are a bit steep for a neighbourhood pub. Having said that , there are cheap deals during the week -eg $10 for a lamb burger. The food was well cooked and presented but I think they would be better to concentrate on the suburban market and lower prices.

“Delivers what it promises”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 July 2013

Good pub bistro food and pleasant service. Not elegant fine dining but delivers pub style food and lots of it - you won't go hungry here. Good friendly service and relaxing atmosphere with good views.
We actually enjoyed our meal better than Bacchus the following night - it has integrity and doesn't over promise.

“Expensive and average.”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 June 2013

Did not like the new look, new menu or the price list. The menu is limited and the food is just not worth the price. Just don't like it anymore. It was better before the changes.
