Had a great time at brunch this past weekend. The food was amazing and the outdoor seating was perfect and socially distanced and safe for everyone. Didn’t know what to expect for brunch but sad I’ve lived in north park for 3 years and recently discovered Dunedin! So happy I did!

It was a little difficult to navigate the stroller as the "aisle" outside is narrow. However, loved the vibe and our kids did well at the table outside. Having two young kids, it's tough to manage for a short period of time and we liked the check than was provided.

Was a nice change for our family to get out of the house and the food was great for all of us

A short bourbon was $22 - which I believe was not noted and surely out of line.
There was also a one dollar overcharge on a burger.
It’s the idea I don’t like about such pricing niceties....

I love the ambiance with all the tropical greenery. Its a mini escape within a concrete jungle and the staff is super friendly. I come to Dunedin for my lamb fix and for the NZ meat pie and chips. Pure comfort food for a UK expat when missing home.

They have gone above and beyond to meet COV-ID requirements. I love this place.

P.S. the peach cobbler was delicious!!

We went here to celebrate my daughter's graduation from HS. She will be going to the University of Otago in Dunedin, NZ as soon as the borders open up. She picked this place, and we were very happy with this choice. The calamari were the best I've had in a while. The lamb skewers with hummus, cucumber and pita were delicious. Everyone was happy with their choice of meals, which included the seared ahi burger, the boar burger (impossible burger sub), and the Bombay chicken burger. We would definitely come back.

Female bartender did not make the drinks good at all. When questioning her (nicely), she got offensive and made excuses. Typical.
Our server hardly came around.
Only positive thing about our dinner experience: Great ambiance especially with the patio seating and beautiful lush plants surrounding you. Food was good.
We've been here a few times before and really enjoyed it. This time it was not worth it at all.

We came in for brunch around 11:30am. Our bartender made THE BEST Mai Tai's! Our Server was awesome. She kept returning to check on us and recommending drinks and answered our questions about the dishes. overall, very easy going while peppy!
We returned later that evening (because breakfast was such a great experience!) but unfortunately, there was a different bartender (female) who didn't make the Mai Tai's good at all. Very disappointing. When we pointed it out, she seemed offended. Our Server didn't come around hardly and it wasn't busy either so, our dining experience at night wasn't as good as when we were there for brunch. I would have given 5-Stars but because our dinner was a disappointment, I rated our score 4-Stars which were all for our brunch experience.

Very cool spot to eat! We grabbed dinner and all three of us loved our meals. We sat out on the patio surrounded by greenery. We requested the heat lamp because it was a little chilly. Highly recommend and can’t wait to go back!

Food was very good, ambiance was fun and service was on point. Only thing that was a little frustrating, the bar stool seats for the table we were at were very uncomfortable.

It was so hot and the patio was quite sunny. I'm fine but my boyfriend is a pale Irish man so it was toasty. The skinny high tops inside felt a little too crowded. Food was great but wish seating options were better
