And the experience certainly was unusual. The recommendation came from our host Ali at The Brothers Boutique Hotel. Thank you. It is not so easy to find, and the entrance looks like it could be a second-hand shop, with not much sinage. But once inside...More

We ate dinner here in July recommended by friends in Dunedin. Down by the wharf area but as soon as you walk in the door you know it's going to be great. Very quirky interesting decor. Food was really good.
