“Stunning view and excellent food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2013

It was Valentine's Day so we were greeted with a complimentary glass of bubbly. Service was prompt and friendly and the food was imaginative, beautifully presented and delicious.

“Excellent food and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2013

We spent 3 days on the Otago peninsula just on the edge of Dunedin and the lodge owners recommended The Hill as a local restaurant we could walk to which was building a really good reputation. It is run by a young couple and I think they have been open for about a year having totally renovated the building to produce a very stylish modern look with views out over Dunedin and the coast. The menu was interesting enough that we went twice for dinner. We enjoyed their special take on sangria as a cocktail, made with some local wines and it was a lot better than we have experienced in Spain. The food was well cooked and presented with variety extending to a very good green Thai curry which I enjoyed and the chef is prepared to experiment which was good. Staff were great so hopefully they will continue to build the business as they deserve success. Definitely 5 stars as the value for money is right as well. It could be a bit quiet there as it is a big restaurant and that's the only downside.
