Food was mediocre, service was poor, none of the on tap drinks were available, no atmosphere. We went here as it had been recommended by the holiday park, however we will not be rushing back ! chairs were rickety, tables sticky and menu was very limited.

This is a big step above the normal pub fare and well worth a visit. Two of us had steaks and they were cooked exactly as asked with a suburb green pepper sauce. The third of us had the sole and it looked and tasted wonderful. Prices are reasonable and service is wonderful. Our congratulations to the chef(s) and the... More

Went here tonight for the first time as a family of 5 I could not fault the service and the meals were far above expectations. Will definitely go here again.

After a terrific Robbies experience in Kaikora, was looking forward to another fabulous serve of pork ribs in Dunedin. Unfortunately not the same experience. Dry & tough. Quite glad I didn't try the lamb shanks when they managed to ruin pork ribs. No Monteiths Radler on tap, and as is the case with everything Dunedin, little or no parking. Lots... More

My kids favourite Friday night pub dinner. Warm fires, family friendly, big helpings and Monteith's on tap. Great selection of pub staples, kids menu and mini donuts with hot toffee sauce for dessert. Plenty of local dropping in for a drink shows it is a well liked pub.

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
