treated like royalty

my special, young Aussie niece and I dined here in July 2015. We were there for dinner. Great food, great service, and they put us at the very best, out-of-the way corner table overlooking Dunedin, magic given that I'm half deaf and this is the quietest table in the place. A magic night out... read more

We happened upon this restaurant on the way to the grocery store and knew we wanted to visit on a non-cooking night. Very happy we did. The view is spectacular. Service is very good. Food is delicious. My partner had a full meal (lamb cooked to perfection) while I had two tapas items. The tapas portions are quite generous and... More

Only a short distance from downtown Dunedin, this place is beautifully situated with a stunning view of Dunedin harbour (when the weather is good....). But the menu is nothing more than workmanlike - perfectly adequate fare at reasonable prices, but nothing to excite the palate. It's a popular local restaurant with an undemanding clientele - if you go with minimum... More

We dined here twice over Christmas and New Year. The crew are great and really helpful, friendly. The food is amazing. I live in Melbourne so we're spoiled a little for good restaurants, but I'd say the food at Luna was as good as anything I've had in Melbourne, if not better. Some of my friends are vegan and this...

Summer evening dinner looking over the city and across to the peninsula, eating NZ lamb and beef and sharing impressions of places. It was the ending to a vacation that we were looking for.

Great view of the bay, very promising sounding menu but fails to deliver on the food front. The falafel taste plate was particularly disappointing; the falafels overcooked until almost black in colour, dry and devoid of taste. The pumpkin gnocchi was just ok, likewise the salads. Service was friendly and efficient and the beer served ice cold.

Great view, very good food (we had some delicious tapas for a casual dinner), friendly and cheerful staff. Decor inside is a bit plain.

I took my family to Luna to celebrate my graduation and after having booked 4 months prior, I was promised that I would be seated at a table upstairs. At the last minute, they changed my table to downstairs and they also completely changed the set menu that I chose. After complaining to the manager about this, he only blamed... More
