I had high hopes of this restaurant, having read a recent very positive review in Cuisine magazine. In fact, we specifically chose to stay at this hotel so we could eat there. The view was lovely, and we were given a table by the window. Service was odd - the waitress simply hadn't been trained, and got flustered when we... More

It's a lovely place for a quiet breakfast. There were only us and another couple in for breakfast so we had excellent service. The food was very good and we had a lovely relaxed breakfast. They also do wonderful vegetable scones which we bought to eat on the train later.

Had the fist experience of tasteless Bacon and Egg. Staff here are a bit laid back, and service suffers. Nice views over the sea are about the only positive thing I could say.

Location is perfect and the service is also good, unfortunately we had the comparison to 2 years ago. Compared to the past the quality of the food was clearly not close to what it has been. Still not bad, however not the prime choice for dinner

Have never been here before, it was nice enough. I've heard portions can be small but I had the tuna paella and it was massive and I couldn't finish it all! View of the ocean was nice and we had dessert as well. All up it came to just over $100 for two mains, fries, two drinks and two desserts.... More

We were celebrating our 40th wedding anniversary and wanted a special meal to acknowledge the occasion, we were disappointed. The service was average at best. We had difficulty understanding our waitress who spoke so fast and didn't offer any explanation of the menu or specials. Service was very slow and people at a neighbouring table were seated after us and... More

On arrival at the adjoining accommodation we decided to have a casual lunch. We both had the pork belly which was just brilliant. The room service menu was supplied by the same restaurant and couldn't be faulted. Eggs benedict on a rosti to die for.

we had lunch here yesterday as this place has nice memories for us. The good thing is that the view is always amazing and our young American waitress was helpful and friendly. The food was a big disappointment. The pate tasted nice but the breads with it were like concrete and basically inedible. I had a tuna main which was... More

Had breakfast here this week with the family on a trip to the south of NZ. Venue had great views and a decent breakfast vibe. Wasn't too busy, and the service staff were friendly and inviting. I had the poached eggs, which were cooked perfectly, unfortunately found a fair bit of shell. Partner and dad had the omelette which they... 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.
