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

After an afternoon exploring the Otago Peninsula we had quite an appetite. It being Christmas Day we were in the mood for a delicious dinner. Pier 24 delivered in every way. The meals were graciously served. Everything was delicious. There were very few dining options on Christmas Day and we were glad Pier 24 offered such amazing meals.

Went there for a graduation meal....I had booked online but they had no record of it...I had asked online for a sea view, but as they didn't know about it we couldn't get one. Meal was $37 each for a steak, an expensive meal for what it was, vegetables were extra. Waitress forgot an entree my husband had ordered and... More

A fancy restaurant with a surfer view but needing serious improvement. We enjoyed the food but the service was disorganized and inattentive. Maybe incompetent when it comes to the bar. Neither of the bartenders could find a bottle of scotch, they had four, and no one knew how to mix the most elementary drinks. Wine wasn't bad though. I'd stay... 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.
