I relish an upscale ,intimate dining experience with imaginative food prepared with fresh and interesting ingredients. The Black Pearl, in my opinion, although so represented is pure hype for it. Perhaps eons ago but not in 2014 when so many venues are challenging it and better at it.

This is top of the line. Excellent food, excellent service and excellent atmosphere. Easily on of the best restaurants in the Tampa Bay area. It is small and intimate. The menu changes constantly, so it is hard to pick a favorite entre, but rest assured, they are all good. This is a place for romance, so leave the kids at... More

The Black Pearl is right on Main Street in downtown Dunedin. Parking is within a block or two at several citylots. The dinning room has about a dozen tables and expresses an intimate atmosphere. Note that this establishment has a beer and wine license only, so no cocktails are available. We were waited upon by an experienced and professional server... More

Great experience. 5 gold stars. Service is top notch. Chief loves what he/she does because the food is wonderful. Make sure you have the apple dessert with homemade ice cream. Small setting be sure to make a reservation.

my favorite local restaurant since the 1980s (when it operated under a different name). if you love fine dining, this is one of the best places in the area to find it. the menu is compiled by the onsite chef who always chooses the best available seasonal selections to serve, that said the menu is ever changing and always something...

Without a doubt, this small fine-dining restaurant is the best in Dunedin and in all probability, one of the best in this part of Florida. It only sits about 35 people so reservations are a must. Food is both creating and delicious. Their house wine is very good and reasonably priced. While the menu isn't huge. there is something for... More

Easily the best in class for Dunedin, probably in Pinellas County. When you're ready to shell out for a special occasion or impress a date, this is the place. Mostly French influences, Continental food, winelist, the whole magilla. Skillfully prepared and presented by an attentive staff. Very small, only a few tables so reservations are a must. You will love... More

The menu has a great variety of dishes; Our meal - filet with a fantastic sauce and planked salmon was excellent and beautifully presented. We were not rushed but not ignored. We... More
