My family and I come in for coffee and nibbles on the weekend of the 13 July. Asked for tea and coffee with trim milk. It arrived and it wasn't trim milk it was "light blue" milk. When I pointed that out they said it was there version of trim. I declined my tea and my husband kept his coffee.... More

Went to Dunedin for rugby test and prebooked Luna for late lunch. The day was sunny which made for a spectacular view of the harbour and city, could even see the stadium. The staff welcomed us on our arrival with a smile, they were amazing couldn't fault the service and the meal just topped it off, tender Chicken Parmigiana went... More

We have been travelling around the South Island and have used Trip Advisor to chose where we dined each night. The Town House, Westport [reviewed by me], Alice May, Franz Joseph, The Rocks Cafe, Invercragill [reviewed by me] and Etrusco at the Savoy, Dunedin were all every bit as good as their ratings and reviews by others on Trip Advisor....

Hi Darryl I'm so sorry you left with having such an unhappy time at our restaurant, and that your wife's expectation of our pork belly wasn't to her liking. We did however try our best at the time to correct this and Sarah your waitress did see if she could have her try another dish, but she did decline our... More

This restaurant is situated up from the Octagon in Dunedin and is well worth a visit. The menu is varied and meals delicious. Lunches are good but evening meals great - the view is also great during the day but evening dining gives the opportunity to enjoy the changes as the daylight gives way to a sparkling city scape

Had a very well prepared lunch served by excellent staff. Good menu and wine list. We had a window table with a magnificent view of the city, harbour and the Otago Peninsular. Will definitely be back when next in Dunedin.

In the last week I have had lunch and dinner at Luna. Both meals were presented beautifully and very tasty. A good range of food to choose from the menu. I had the lamb rump and couscous dish for dinner which had beautiful spices and reminded me of Morocco. The ends of the rump was a little over cooked. My... More

We ate here because of the 10% discount we got as residents at the Roslyn Motel Apartments. Excellent experience. Bluff oysters were on the menu, and while they may not be to everybody's taste, they were well worth having. Interesting menu and food was good. Have to say I sent back some uncooked lamb which was returned to me quickly... More

I had my husband's 40th surprise birthday party at Luna Restaurant, it was excellent. Everything went smoothly. Thank you so much Keri for everything: the smiles, planning, food, hospitality. You were great. My husband was so impressed, and all our 20 guests had good things to say about the restaurant and their meals. You have won my heart. My husband... More
