Firstly, credit to the maitre d' for finding us a table even though I had messed up the on-line booking for lunch and got the wrong date. However that's where credit for service ends. In the event, the restaurant was not busy. I was entertaining...More

My husband and I dine out a lot around New Zealand and overseas, and this is honestly the worst service we’ve ever had. We wandered in from the beach- this is a beach front restaurant advertising “cafe food” after all - hoping to get a...More

This restaurant is well known for dinner. We stopped in for a late cooked breakfast one week day. It wasn’t busy but the service was a little slower than I expected and I thought the food presentation and service was average as opposed to ‘very...More

Great location and friendly waiting staff. Food looked great on the menu but was poorly executed: under-flavoured and arrived cold- no excuse, as we were the only customers at the time. Chef, pick up your game, please.

Oceanfront restaurant with awesome food and service. Breathtaking views from our table. Comfortable seating and easy to hear conversations due to great acoustics.

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.
