group of four for dinner. Didn't fit nicely round the table; however there are much bigger tables available. They are really only big enough for three folks. Awesome menu catering for most food types including veg and GF. Mix of everything. Easy to get a tab going. Friendly staff. Easy walk to city centre. went back for a coffee next... More

Went here twice in two days, friendly staff and relaxed casual atmosphere. Food and drinks service was good. Food was good and reasonably priced. Able to find a quiet table despite being full both times.

Eureka is in the heart of the Dunedin University area, so I was pleasantly surprised that this place isn't a student hang out. In-door and out-door dining and they will take large bookings. Service was speedy, cheerful and helpful and although the restaurant was busy with 2 big tables of 12 and 16, out meals came out quickly. I had... More

My favorite local drinking hole. Fantastic and changing selection of craft beers, snack food menu plus full dining - which is a notch above the average pub grub (with commensurate pricing mind you). Virtually right on the campus of Otago University and the Otago Polytech, the more upmarket fare and pricing discourages undergrads, but is favored by postgrads and especially... More

Set amongst hundreds of student flats I was expecting a good basic meal from this bar! After very welcoming and attentive service we were presented with fabulous food, at a reasonable price. So easy for parking and near flats and halls-perfect for parents to treat their offspring !

Nice place. Well furnished. Average to good food depending on what you order. Has an outside area.... but dont try sitting there if you are not a smoker. Way over priced food.

Eureka has a great selection of craft beer on tap, with all sorts of interesting beer for you to try. The courtyard out the back is beautiful on a sunny day.

Returned here after 6 years away from Dunedin and it's still fantastic - delicious meals, generous portions, nice atmosphere. I'll be back next time I'm in town!

Beef nachos and brownie were excellent, but very filling!!! Good selection of teas and Moa beers! We enjoyed the apple-infused cider. Nice chilled atmosphere, not too crowded at lunchtime when we went.

With a reputation as a craft beer bar and within a stone's throw of the University, I had some pre-conceived ideas about Eureka. Surprisingly, the place actually struck me to be more of a gastro-pub and a pretty good one at that, being stylishly fitted out and with pleasant table service, rather than some dodgy student dive. The beer range... More
