Good food, huge portions

We stayed in Dunedin for 10 days of a Vintage Car Club rally and tried the local Robbies having had good experiences elsewhere. Service was prompt, the wait was shorter than we were advised and the food was great. Lots of gluten-free choices, I opted for the roast of the day. This was a huge pile... read more

This is a very family style bar and bistro. Comfortable, nice food and friendly service. Kind of in the Cobb and Co style. We all had lovely meals when we dined there and would be happy to return.

This is a quaint place which is appealing with stained glass windows & a lot of little nic - nacs inside. We ordered fish, fries & salads along with a roast of beef. Each dish was remarked on as being excellent. We will go again for for a meal.

I had the catch of the day in beer batter. The nicest part was the batter. The fish was watery and not of the quality you would expect for the price. While not a great chip fan they were undercooked and soggy. Probably wont go back as there is such a huge choice in Dunedin. Next time I'm going to... More

We love going to Robbies for meals. The salmon meal is lovely, the chicken kebabs and rice and salad is what I have when I go for lunch. The salmon for evening dining. Also the lambs fry and bacon is very nice. The roasts are a very good size if really hungry. Very nice garlic bread as well and if... More

We arrived Dunedin late in the evening after a whole day of traveling. By the time we headed out for dinner it was close to 8 pm and most restaurants were closed except fast food and takeaways. Fortunately we saw Robbies and had a satisfying meal for two. We ordered the soup of the day, a chicken wrap and fish... More

Cold night with rain. Staff were friendly and food was good. Had real open fires going to add to atmosphere, and it was nice and warm inside. We meet one of our groups brother and wife with a 3 month old baby who started to cry a wee bit. Within a minute one of the staff came over with a... More

Another trip to Dunedin, and another satisfying meal at Robbie's Bar and Bistro. Definitely still the best!
