My husband and I by chance stumbled across Robbins Bar & Bistro in South Dunedin looking for a meal. It was a Wednesday night so we were able to enjoy their Wednesday night steak night special for $23. Both our steaks were cooked how we liked it and the meals were generous.

Sometimes called the "Pensioners Lunch" it's actually available to all, daily. Choice of 3 mains, including a roast, then dessert, all for $12. I've dined here for the last few years, and the food is always beautifully prepared and served. I heartily recommend it. :-)

First time we have eaten here but what an amazing menu. Full menu, specials menu, special specials menu. Very affordable prices for good food. Loved the old style bar and restaurant. We will definitely go again.

We visited Robbies for lunch and ordered the corn fritters, a children's corn-dog meal and the clam chowder. All these items are not on the regular menu but are featured on the chalk board lunch menu. I have to confess we were not expecting much but the food was fantastic! The corn cakes were tasty and well presented, the corn-dog... More

Went here to celebrate a birthday. The staff were very friendly and the menu catered for all tastes.

The sides have enough for 2 people to share.Thank you to the staff for the... More
