This is our second visit and I think we enjoyed it even more. Looking forward to visiting Dunedin again so we can go back here. Great prices and yummy food. Under $10 gets a kids main, desert and drink.

We have been on several occasions and have had a great experience every time. The staff are very helpful and friendly and the meals are reasonably priced and good value. We are a group of people of advanced age and nothing is too much trouble.

Was here on my birthday with family, they went the extra mile by putting a birthday printout on our table. I felt pretty special seeing that. Porkchops is my wife and I's favorite. They serve big portions for adult and kids dishes. Service is excellent as staff members always look after our table. Checking us if everything is ok. One... More

This use to be one of my favourite haunts when I lived in Dunedin. Still remains a favourite among my favourites. I was down in sad times so catching up with an old colleague - this was our first choice. Normal looking tavern type atmosphere. Historical information about the site and surroundings - great to see a bit of history.... More

Met with friends for tea. Was a reasonably price pub meal. Blue cod was delicious but salad was nothing to write home about. Dessert was good though.

We dined here as a group of 16, with children aged 4-16. First important point: bookings essential. Mitchell's is very popular. The best thing about the menu is there's something for everyone. Meals are available small or large, there are light menu options - perfect for those kids too big for kids menu but not ready for a full meal.... More

This restaurant used to be a favourite of mine, when I visited Dunedin. The prices are great. However, certain aspects of the meals have gone off. The salads that used to accompany the meals used to be delicious. However, when I last visited I was served a stale pasta salad with a sickly dressing. The other part of the salad... More
