Food cooked ok. Not stunning. Small portion but not the fine dining expected. Not good value. Probably wouldn't go back or recommend to friends. Expensive for what was provided.
Friendly and attentive staff and good service.
Went out for an evening meal while visiting family in Dunedin. Excellent service and fine dining on the Octogen. Definitely recommend if you enjoy dining out. Upstairs in a refurbished bank with a view of the Octogen.
Boutique type restaurant upstairs from the Octagon. Don’t be put off by entry, it’s old n looks a bit run down but once up stairs you get the idea if it’s old world charm. Service was excellent. Bacchus has won a NZ beef & lamb...award ever year for past 20 years so make sure you order beef or lamb. They do have chicken n fish on the menu as well. Make sure when booking you don’t get a table in the hallway as you walk in to the restaurant. Food was excellent especially the beef cheeks! A bit pricey so be prepared. Cost us $290 four with no alcohol!More
Yes prices are a bit high compared to a pub or bistro but this is fine dining and very reasonable for the quality of food that you get. Ate pork belly that was probably the best I had ever. Excellent wine list, this a bit...over price, as I don't all restaurants in NZ for wine...we know how much it costs in the shop!
Excellent service and nice atmosphere, if I have to recommend one restaurant in Dunedin, this will be the oneMore
We were here for a significant birthday celebration after personal recommendations and Trip Advisor reviews and we had a brilliant night. All our meals, entree, mains and desserts, were delicious and perfectly cooked. The staff were outstanding and it was lovely to look out over...the Octagon on a sunny evening. Highly Recommended.More
Simply the best food in Dunedin. More than this - they have an amazing selection of NZ wines (and others of course). The chef is more than talented. Not only that it tasted great, it looked amazing as well. The restaurant is located in one...of the oldest buildings of Dunedin on the first floor. Staff is very friendly- just go and try out!More
