The service overall was very average - we were seated upstairs and I had to go behind the bar to get carafes and fill with water myself (no ice in sight), mains took forever and the whole flounder was overcooked, L packing any flavour and sooo dry ( not sure how anyone could overcook flounder!) with an average salad and...

My favorite restaurant because they always look after me so well. I've gone alone and with family. They always make me feel special. The wait staff are friendly and I especially love the sliders.

Bit of an awkward place to get to even by car and parking can be a bit difficult. However the view is wonderful and its a cozy restaurant. Staff were friendly and very helpful and very pleasant. Knowledge of the menu was good too. The meals were delicious and serving plentiful. A great night.

Very disappointed in my latest dining experience at Luna. Yes restaurant was busy however we had prebooked a large party of people (14) well in advance. Service was extremely slow. Long wait between courses. Best course was the entree of bread and dips. Main course was very ordinary and if waiting staff had bothered to ask how things were going... More

Excellent restaurant overlooking Dunedin city. It's a little out of the way but well worth s visit. But remember to book because we went there on a Monday night at 6 pm and could only have a table till 7.45 as they were booked out from then. Salmon in miso soup delicious.

I was gifted a voucher to Luna for me to take the Mrs out and have a special occasion. We both had the day off work after the Melbourne Cup event at the Wingatui race course and decided a nice lunch would be just the ticket. We arrived about 12.10pm - the only ones there apart from an elderly lady... More

My daughter and I popped into Luna for a quick meal and really enjoyed the experience. A great setting and very relaxed vibe. The front of house woman was delightful - friendly, helpful and attentive, and offered helpful advice on drinks that she recommended would go with our food choices. We shared the sliders - a chicken mix teamed with... More

A group of us visited for dinner, we had visitors down from Auckland, some meals were OK but one meal, the baked flounder was horrendous. The measly "salad" was not at all as described, it was inedible, warm and tasted like chemicals, the 4 tiny new potato's were closer to raw than cooked and still had crunch, and the flounder...

The area is spit into a bar type area at the font and seated dinning at the back. First step was to get past the very loud crowd milling about the front area to get to our seat. The wait staff arrived promptly and were very pleasant,a shame that this was more or less the last time we saw them.... More
