The service and ambiance is 1st class and friendly. The food was scrumptious. Days later we were still talking about the unique salad. I had the rack of lamb crusted with....can't remember what but it was delicious. No room left for the desserts but they sounded great too.

We were visiting from San Francisco and were looking for a fantastic experience to celebrate a special birthday. The Black Pearl exceeded our expectations. The restaurant is located in small space in downrown Dunedin. The food was exceptional and the service was knowledgable and friendly, yet not overbearing. The wine list is small, but well chosen and well priced. We... More

This is one of the best meals we have had. You get what you pay for that is for sure! This small restaurant has a limited number of tables, You need to make reservations! They have table cloths and is a very upscale meal and service!!! Very quiet and intimate dining. Will be back soon!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Haven't eaten here for a year and while the ownership has changed, the chef has not. Still the best restaurant in Dunedin and likely one of the very best in the region. While this fine dinning room is a tad expensive, its worth every penny.

Great little place to have a nice upscale dinner with a loved one or friends and family. Service is spot on and the food is excellent. This is not a place to go if you want a regular dining experience. This is fine dining. A place for special occasions and romantic dinners.

Thank louisdarke

At the Black Pearl Restaurant, creating a one of a kind dining experience is our goal, every dish from the warm ciabatta bread to the homemade vanilla bean ice cream is made in house, and to order especially for you. We believe life is too short to eat bad food.
