There is a reason the Black Pearl has been in business for almost two decades...excellence in dining! We were celebrating a special anniversary and one of the owners, Trevor Gibbs did everything possible to make our dining experience superb.

My husband chose the Black Pearl to surprise me with a proposal on Christmas Eve. He didn't have a clue what he was doing, and the restaurant had no idea what was happening until I went to the ladies room and he let them know what he was trying to accomplish. They were very happy to play a role in... More

This little store front on Main Street in Dunedin is an absolute gem and provides the finest dining experience you could ask for. The room is small, dark and candlelit - romantic. The servers are experienced, pleasant, knowledgable and aim to please. They are happy to see you. But the thing that sets the Black Pearl apart is the food.... More

Dark, cool and... More

The staff was perfect, the food was excellent, the wine was awesome! We were there with our 2 year old daughter and they were so awesome with her. No children's menu, but she loved the Lobster Risotto and Chilean Sea Bass!

Quaint, intimate, delicious french cuisine with attentive wait staff. The filet mignon was superb, mushroom ragout pasta delightful, and the house specialty of licorice ice cream divine! Bon appetit! Reservations needed.

Friends in the Dunedin area recommended this restaurant for our 30th anniversary dinner. We're vegetarians so we were impressed with the great dining experience here. The wine list offers many good choices in all different price ranges. Service is excellent. The establishment is not stuffy and fancy attire is not required of the guests. The atmosphere is relaxed. The quality... More
