We had a terrific lunch here. The food was delicious, the deck overlooking the broad beach was delightful, and watching the whales was heaps of fun. Dino’s may be a little out of the way from the center of Tofo, but it’s worth the short...More

We went there one evening for a meal, as we were staying within easy walking distance. We were the only customers there, and it took them over an hour and a half to produce our food. Would have been manageable if the food was good,...More

Good afternoon. I apologise for your experience. I will follow up with the staff as that is most unusual, our chickens are a favourite on the menu. If a problem exists in the kitchen I will attend to it immediately. Management

Despite having a really nice layout and external appearance, and beach frontage that is the envy of others, Dino's leaves a lot to be desired. I know and expect service isn't swift in some places, but this was properly slow. The food was only alright,...More
