We took my father-in-law here when he was visiting. It was okay, the food was good, but it was not my cup of tea. Way way too stuffy and a price to match. I can do a lot better for the money. Dunedin is full of great dining options. If your point is to show off your high brow spending,... More

This is one of my favorite venues for great dining and service. This was one of many business events that I have done at this restaurant. Trevor and his staff provide attention to details. Food is expertly prepared and orchestrated for dining enjoyment that is relaxing yet does not draw things out so that the evening lasts forever. I never... More

My wife and I are considering moving to the Dunedin area and having read the reviews on Trip Advisor, Black Pearl was on our "must try" list. We were NOT disappointed. We had a knowledgeable server "Jeff" who was very helpful explaining the menu. Without question, if you appreciate an excellent dining experience from start to finish and if you... More

My fiancee and I dined here for our anniversary. It was an amazing experience. The atmosphere is a little drab and outdated, but the service and food make up for the shortcomings. I had the Lobster risotto and my date enjoyed the Hawaiian Opa, a special on the menu. The service was top-notch. Our waiter, Michael, maintained an extremely high... More

This restaurant is a fantastic way to spend an evening in an intimate, personal way. The food is second to none and the service is exceptional. Every course was perfectly prepared and served artfully. We felt relaxed and comfortable during the evening -- not rushed or hurried to leave. We will definitely return whenever we are near Dunedin.

This is a must visit restaurant when in the Dunedin area. The venue is quite small so best if a reservation is made. For starters we had Pate - yum and lobster truffle risotto! The risotto was perfect, cream and just a touch of truffle flavor so it didn't overwhelm the tender lobster meat. The pate was fresh and perfect!... More

Don't miss this fine gem in Dunedin. Our waiter Michael was excellent...starting with making us feel comfortable and was very informative about the menu and his recommendations were right on! We ordered the shrimp appetizer, lamb chop and sea bass for entries and the chocolate molten lava cake for dinner....all were tasty. The atmosphere is lovely. Highly, Highly, Highly recommend...

We discovered this little "pearl" years ago, but hadn't returned in awhile because it's a bit pricey, but recently we decided to return to celebrate a special occasion with friends. It was AMAZING! It's a TINY place, but it's very INTIMATE, and quiet. The ambiance is elegant, but not stuffy. The service is outstanding and the food is delightful. It... More
