Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

If you can't get into Mexicano's next door, The Dirty Land shares their kitchen and menu 👌
I loved the cosy fireplace and sophisticated vibe. Impeccable service and cocktails.
Food was fantastic, Christchurch fare has surprisingly delighted this Melbournian foodie.

10 of us descended here and we had fabulous service all night. Wide variety of drinks and all delicious. Food great, tasty fresh and varied. Great value. Only tiny change would be to make it slightly less loud so we could hear. But we moved outside to fix that. Thanks team.

Managed to get a last minute booking for 2 early evening after googling places close to hotel. After a long day traveling this was just what the doctor ordered! The cocktail list is extensive & makes it hard to chose! Out choices were spot on & delicious. Place was humming with a great vibe, warm & friendly staff, good music and super cool decor, AND they have food.....which was delicious! This place is a ‘must try’ in my opinion - thanks for the awesome hospitality!

I went with a small group of friends to explore on a Friday night. First port of call was The Dirty Land. I was impressed by the friendly staff and just the right level of table service. There seemed a lot of staff for such a small place, but they looked like they knew what they were doing and were having a good time.

We sat in the moody den and used our phone torches to read the extensive drinks menu while warming our hands on the real candles after coming in from the terrible weather. I think the drinks were good but we're all a bit new to cocktails so some of us chose the wrong thing. Very happy that our sober driver was catered for with a stunning $10 mocktail created depending on whether she was vibing sweet or sour or whatever.

I was a little weirded out by the paintings, but overall, a great time!
