A quick lunch with 6and we pre-order the pizza etc. Great food. Hot and tastey. Good drinks as well. Just cold wind from the door not always shutting completely. Apart from that. We will do this again for sure.

Just wanted a quick bite after landing in Dunedin and a pizza and a glass of wine at Ratbags was perfect. Delicious pizza on a great thin base, top value too. And the service was 100% friendly and welcoming. Definitely recommended.

Known for its giant pizza’s, Ratbags would definitely be a highlight of the trip. We had ordered 21 pizzas, each half a metre long! This place definitely accommodates for large groups. Located in central city, it’s a short walk to entertainment and other nightlife options....More
