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

We stopped here for a quick drink and a bit to eat after a shopping trip. I asked the barman about the white wine they have, either pinot gris or savignon blanc. I've been drinking pinot gris in NZ as I prefer it to sav blanc. This wine was awful so returned to the bar and told them so. I... More

I had dinner at robbies tonight one of the nicest meals I have had at a restuarant in quite awhile. I came away full rather than hungry and the meal was great value for money Staff were fantastic and meal was delivered quickly. I will consider going back in the future.

I recently made a special trip to Robbies, to try their cheese rolls, which I heard about on the radio. I purchased 2 of these rolls, and was informed they were $4.50 each. Mine were untoasted for $4.00 each. I was surprised at the size of them, nine inches long. I took them home and followed the cooking instructions, I... More

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
