On a cold night Robbies was warm and inviting. Meal service was good as well as portion size. We also like the atmosphere of the place. Not all glass and chrome. We would return again.

My daughter and I were staying at 555 Best Western on Bayview. So we were so happy to find a lovely and homely Bar and Bistro just five minutes walk from our Motel. Lovely setting with fires lit around the Bar. A nice escape from the very cold Dunedin weather in Winter. A very family friendly place with a wide... More

Chosen because of its proximity to our motel, but we enjoyed our meal and were pleased to see that there are multiple locations. Fish chowder as a main course was a reasonable and satisfying option. Fish of the day main was excellent.

Food was good. Kids activity packs were a nice surprise which the kids loved! Service was a little slow and not very professional. Toilets were disgusting!! A real put off. Staff were too busy chatting with each other. Scruffy uniforms. And waitresses using their tummy's to balance plates when serving the food to the tables. So clothing sitting on the... More

Great warm and inviting atmosphere. I had the lamb shanks and they were amazing. The meat literally melted in your mouth. All the meals we had were exceptional. Would not hesitate to recommend
