Plenty of Food, Plenty of Noise

Eureka has a fun, pub atmosphere: very warm and cozy in the Winter, with lots of good beer on tap, and some pleasant wines. The menu is varied, leaning towards carnivores but there's always salad for vegetarians (often with an egg on top). Service is mixed. They're inclined to leave you alone if... read more

Came here for a catch up and the service was pretty average. The waiter had my brownie from behind the counter and expected me to get it from him (American guy) If I'm paying for a $6.50 Brownie I Expect it to be served to me on the table. All in all the food is really good but over priced!

Went here on Monday night and would have to say was the worst service I have ever experienced. The waitress looked like she didn't want to be there. We were advised after ordering our food that there would be a wait as one of the chefs couldn't make it in due to the weather. We asked how long it would... More

Good selection of beers and wines. But everything else are overpriced. Food are average. Could get much tastier selection elsewhere. Popular with university staff and students. Good atmosphere though.

Eureka have fabulous beers on tap, and a great selection of wines (better selection than any other Dunedin bar I frequent). Their food is fairly typical of a bar with restaurant; ie. breads with pesto, chips, kumara wedges, but also main meals that are interesting enough after a few glasses of aforementioned wine, and offer variety to suit the light...

It has an indoor outdoor beer garden with a huge number of different beers from over the world to try. Good lay out with snug and more open places to meet. Fairly good food of which, like the wine and beer, there was plenty of choice available. Our last trip out of Timaru for this NZ summer. Dunedin was good.... More

If you like craft beer this is the place for you. There must be at least a dozen different beers on tap including limited run guest beers. The wine list also looked quite good. There are a number of seating areas with restaurant like booths at the front. Leander's and tables around the bar area and a airy sheltered beer... More
