I have been to Two Chefs many time and every time I enjoy the food and great service. The ambiance is is great also, especially on a cold Dunedin night. Looking forward to going back.

It is our 25th anniversary and we were looking for great food and a romantic ambience. The Two Chefs did not disappoint. The wine list is extensive and the staff were terrific with helping us to decide on the best pairing. The food was outstanding. We had oysters, the onion soup, and the lamb. We didn't have room for dessert... More

This is a lovely restaurant with a good menu including locally sourced produce. My son and I had three courses all very balanced and done to a high standard. Happy to return when in Dunedin again.

We went to Two Chefs for a birthday celebration and loved it! So we went back the next night too. The woman running things out the front was calm and assured; giving the restaurant a pleasant atmosphere. She made the best ever pre dinner drinks. All the food was quite fabulous, and a bit unusual. Not sure we can think... More

They did an amazing job serving and attending to the 20 or so diners. The newbie attended to us and was obliging , friendly and attentive .... More

Great food and really nice environment/atmosphere. Would definitely return. First time I had eaten rabbit (entree) and I was pleasantly surprised. Everyone at our table raved about their food.
