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

We were looking for an up-scale, early New Year's Eve special fete for our family of four in the neighborhood because we were participating in" a house crawl" later that evening. We visited the web site, liked the choices of the special New Year's Evening seven course dinner and made the reservation which had to be secured with a credit... More

this is our new favorite high-end place. all steaks were superb, fish excellent, chicken fantastic. Nothing here disappoints. Realize that top quality and service comes with a top price, but a great choice for special occasions like birthdays or anniversaries.

We went to the Black Pearl for our anniversary and enjoyed it immensely. Everything we ordered was delicious, we were not rushed at all, and the service was top notch. This is a very pricey restaurant, but worth the expense for a special occasion. We will go back again.

We went to the Black Pearl to celebrate my birthday. What a wonderful experience! The ambiance the service and the food are outstanding. Picture a small intimate French restaurant with quiet music and soft lights. Michael our server greeted us and explained the menu. Note: Good food is never rushed and we never felt rushed. The service was top-notch and... More
