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.

Stopped in here at the end of our evening to have a couple snacks and my sister wanted to have some wine. I’m not a big drinker and the F&B manager Jeremey came to answer any and all questions. He had great advice on wines for my sister and was very knowledgeable. We heard great things about the restaurant as well, although we weren’t so hungry we had a few snacks and they were yummy. Jeremey was a delight and a joy to meet, he is certainly a gem to have on the team at the hotel and restaurant. He was very hospitable and made us feel right at home. He went above and beyond, had a wonderful energy and is very dedicated, hardworking and talented at whatever he is doing. We definitely recommend stopping in for dinner or drinks and saying hello to Jeremey. We will not forget this place. -Elizabeth Gilson

Wonderful staff who took care and time to explain each item on the High Tea menu, plus a tota totally delicious and creative High Tea. Best we’d ever had.

Absolutely amazing food with fantastic wait staff. You can tell the staff are very well trained, well done to the trainers and staff themselves. The food was amazing. I had the steak burger one night and it was divine, and the steak meal with mushroom sauce the next. I could happily have both again! Would highly recommend

Everything about my dinner was superb. Very flavorful vegetable soup, followed by tender venison (perhaps sous vide but perfect). Great local beer with soup, fabulous New Zealand Pinot Noir (Mt. Difficult) with venison, couldn't be happier. Very nice wait staff. So five stars absolutely. Then this annoying little piece of New Zealand graft: you pay a 2.5 percent surcharge for using your Amex or Visa card. If you have local bank cards, no surcharge. It's not about you or me. It's about the war restaurants are waging with credit card companies. I'm sick of it. The Press Club masquerades as an independent restaurant, but it's part of a hotel chain. Hotels cater to foreign guests. Foreign guests don't have local cards. So this outfit punishes overseas visitors like me who use their restaurant and have no other way to pay. Tourism is a major income producer for New Zealand. The Press Club owners know this. They don't care. They want a tax on you for dining there. Does it matter financially? No. Does it matter emotionally? Yes, absolutely. That's why I'm writing a one-star review for a five-star dinner.

Attentive friendly staff combined with fresh delicious food is a good setting for a birthday celebration. The leather couches, fresh flowers soft lighting and easy listening music give the restaurant a pleasant ambiance.

We chose this restaurant on the basis of good reviews and its location in the Fable Hotel where we were staying. We were both impressed by the service, the presentation & flavours of our meals. I chose a vegan option and I can honestly say it was one of the tastiest vegan meals I've ever had in a restaurant. They also had an impressive wine selection.

The chef is wonderful, food is delicious. If I had one criticism - there is too much in a serving! But that is just me with a small appetite. The service is wonderful - nothing is too much trouble for Ramon, Claudia, Sophie and the team. Loved it!

We had a wonderful experience of dining with a High Tea at the Press Club at Fables Hotel. Beautiful food well presented. A collection of teas and as many as you want. They also serve coffee plus a glass of bubbles as an extra. Staff were very helpful and pleasant going over the details of our food. As an extra we were also served scones and cream. I would definitely recommend this experience.

Dunedin doesn't have many options for fine dining, so if you're seeking an alternative to established names like Bacchus and Two Chefs then The Press Club is definitely worth a visit. Don't be put off by the fact the restaurant is part of the Fable hotel. The food is top notch and both our waiter (Ramon) and the bar manager (Jeremy, a French chap with standout gold shoes) helped deliver our fine dining experience. We had several dishes over 3 courses and also sampled cocktails from their quirky and interesting cocktail menu. No complaints and a recommended destination.
