Great for coffee or fine dining

I have been lucky enough to experience a hurried visit of coffee and fries, and a long leisurely meal. Both were great with wonderful staff, tasty food, coffee that hits the spot, fantastic view and decor, plus amazing restrooms.

An evening meal this time. Reserved a table. Waitress was very good. Shared a chicken pate. Could have had a stronger flavour but nice after taste. My main was the rack of lamb, nicely cooked with a side of market veges.not a cheap main as each bit of meat was about 10 bucks. I like to try things that we... More

Special night, my birthday, so hubby wanted to take me somewhere really nice. Our daughter-in-law recommended the Luna. We booked early in the day and requested a window table as the view over the city and harbour was reported to be quite something. Yes, we got the perfect table, and yes the view was lovely, especially when darkness fell and... More

The views over the city are very nice. Service and people were fine. Prices are quite high, but not justified by the quality of the food. The kitchen is slow -- we waited well over 30 minutes for our food after ordering (and have since heard that this aspect is well known in the community). Curry soup was OK, but... More

A much anticipated meal this evening - hmm. Comment about the restaurant before booking was - oh the best view in the city. Yup. If you want a view and a glass of wine then this is the place to go. Food a huge disappointment. Had the poached salmon in a Thai broth - not so. Fried salmon , fried... More

4 of us visited Luna tonight. We had requested a window table but it was unavailable so we were seated away from the best views, no problem. There is only room for about 30 diners at a time with some other areas in the bar area, maybe room for 12-15 people. Between us we had two rib eye steaks, one... More

The setting, overlooking the city, is just great. I started my meal with a selection of delicious dips. My main was a perfectly cooked rare fillet steak on polenta and bok choi with micro greens. The only downside was that the waitstaff were very slow in time to take our order.

Came upon this place by accident but will visit again. My mochachino was so good I had to have two. We both had the big breakfast. One with poached eggs and the other fried. The staff were very pleasant. Thanks.

Four of us in for a business lunch but not impressed. Luna has a great view over Dunedin & the harbour but all tables with a view were taken on this day. Once seated & left with the menus, business discussion naturally commenced. I found it a little rude when the waitress, instead of waiting for a lull in conversation,... More

we wanted to eat here our first night but they could not accommodate us - which was fine on short notice and they did recommend somewhere else and made a reservation for the next day. The setting/decor was nice and we were seated at a table with a stunning view. However, the service was rushed and not great. I felt... More
