I took my sister to Dux Dine for lunch - we both had the baked lime & coriander crusted fish. Our meals were absolutely delicious, the fish was superb as were the salad & polenta fries. The serving sizes were generous and I couldn’t fit dessert in! We sat outside in the lovely garden area & enjoyed the ambiance and fresh air. The service was excellent and the waitress checked in with us several times to make sure everything was ok. I would definitely recommend Dux Dine for lunch and will be back to dine again soon!

Lovely setting to sit outside for a pre dinner drink so arrive before your reservation especially if a sunny day. Food was fantastic with service to match. The best first table experience I’ve had so far. We both enjoyed the experience as a great selection of meatless meals at a high standard.

I visited there for the first time as my friend recommended me for my husband's 40th birthday. The food was beyond our expectations and the lady served us was so nice. It was on Tuesday and it was not crowded but still steady with few people there. I highly recommend to go there.

The building is a beautiful period weatherboard ,the nside is classy but homely.We were warmly welcomed by Amber.The fishes of the day sounded amazing but we opted for the salmon pizza and the avocado smash on a bagel with perfectly poached eggs and a generous piece of salmon.
Both were very,very tasty and cooked spot on.
I am not sure how but we managed to save some room for a shared desert of a palate cleansing gorgeous lemon taste with what tasted like home made yummy ice cream.The meal was accompanied by some well chosen pinot gris and finished with an obligatory coffee , a little fudge on the side.The service was professional,unobtrusive,warm and friendly.We will be back!

Had an excellent meal at Dux Dine.
Starters of cauliflower bites, oysters and calamari and oysters were divine as was the main of pea and haloumi fritters, mushroom Wellington and seafood chowder. The service was excellent and the happy hour was also a bonus. Will definitely be returning

Absolutely lovely lunch, with a huge selection as the breakfast, brunch and lunch menu were all available. We all enjoyed our meals, which were substantial and using high-quality ingredients. The décor is cool - quirky, yet elegant. It was a very nice touch to get a complimentary glass of bubbles for the birthday girl. Would highly recommend Dux Dine, and I want to go back again!

Great atmosphere, friendly staff and tasty food.

After 3 full on days of training the warm and welcoming atmosphere of Dux Dine was just what we needed. Soaking in the warmth of the fire it was a hard choice between so many delicious menu options - even with various dietary needs between us. The staff were so welcoming and friendly, made us feel right at home. Only wish I'd had some room left for some dessert as it looked divine! Will definitely be back!

- dined at Dux Dine on

Congratulations Dux Dine on a first class meal. From the very friendly staff who were most helpful explaining fully about the various options on the menu to the food itself, it was the best ever. I had the salmon and the presentation was exceedingly attractive and absolutely delicious. The others in the group were equally impressed and we vowed to return.

We had a lovely meal sitting out in the warm evening. Family meal for four my husband had the chiefs special fish with sides which we ordered all three carrots in honey, one daughter had the salad and myself and our other daughter shared the platter. So tasty and so full unable to order dessert. The cost was very reasonable. The service was amazing. 5 stars

This was our first experience at Dux Dine, a wonderful villa with heaps of ambience. We were given a warm welcome by attentive staff, a table for two by the cosy fireplace and served instantly. Lots of choices on the menu and our entrees and mains were plentiful and delicious. Great service in such a relaxing atmosphere. Thank you Dux Dine, a lovely place to spend a cold winters night, we will definitely be back in summer as the outdoor seating area in the garden looks amazing.

High class dining at a reasonable price. The waiters are well groomed, very professional and friendly. The food is superb. I would highly recommend the Dux Dine to those who enjoy the finer things in life and like being treated like a VIP.

Awesome food and service. Our first waitress was very proactive and the next waiter was very polite and attentive. The Brie bread was just perfect, real Brie, not the ones that you melt and turn into oil, yours are the good stuff I was looking for. My partner and I also had the Prawn Linguini, another score, it's really hard to find good pasta in NZ, but your Linguini was delicious!! Grouper was good, very fresh as well. Overall, you guys are very good, thank you!

Wow what an incredible dining experience!!
One of the nicest restaurants I have ever been to. The staff glide in and out of tables and are so kind. The food is just incredible! We had arancini balls and the dips platter to start, all tasted amazing and was a meal in itself. Our mains were the haloumi and pea fritters and the Akaroa salmon, these were absolutely delicious and beautifully laid out on the plate. And even though we were stuffed of course we shared the Dux collection for dessert, and was it ever a tasty and sweet treat!
Such a lovely experience overall, will absolutely go again!

The food was lovely. I had the Akaroa Salmon which was cooked to perfection and the service was great. Attentive but not too intrusive. The atmosphere was wonderful. We sat on the deck with the sun shining. Highly recommend.

Beautiful setting and atmosphere, lovely service and really nice food. The daily fish dish and curry were both very generous portions and delicious, the pasta small for a main but tasty, with lots of fresh, plump prawns. We really enjoyed our evening.

As soon as you walk in the atmosphere of this place is amazing. Our waiter Sam was more than happy to accommodate my daughter's extra avocado request. And did everything possible that make it a pleasant experience. The food was flavoursome I really enjoyed the pasta. The service at Dux Dine is the best we have ever received!

Thanks again

Dined here last night on a First Table, shocking weather outside so was so lovely for our table to be seated by the open fire, great atmosphere. My main of salmon I wouldn't choose again was not very palatable, but entree's and desserts for us all were beautiful and we enjoyed ourselves thoroughly. Would highly recommend and will be back for another meal.

The meal was delicious, however our water carafe was filthy at the bottom and had to ask for a new one. The front door which is glass was also filthy and looked like it hadnt been cleaned for a while. Service was fine, the fish the best ever
