Great wine and beer and good food

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... read more

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

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
