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!

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!

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.

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!

We were lucky enough to have oysters on an additional menu. Not a fan of slimey chewy sea water I do love a fried oyster and these were on the menu. I would say that they were nice and I found the batter to be crispy but also oil soaked especially underneath. My husband loved his chowder which was crammed full of fish and seafood and tasted great. Mains were good, maybe a bit too much salt with the lentils under my fish. The waiter never came to ask if we wished to order anything of the drinks menu, which was actually fine as we weren't going that night anyway. All up we couldn't fit in dessert and would dine here again despite criticisms :-).

Beautiful atmosphere, subtlety lit, decor and cosy gas fires.
I ordered groper and was glad I wasn’t paying full price - I found the lentils bland and under cooked but I didn’t raise it with the restaurant so have no reason to be raising it now. My friends loved their food - salmon pizza, quinoa/haloumi salad and kids pizza. Arancini balls yum but not strong on pumpkin or kumara flavours. I sent my chocolate sticky pudding back as it was dry and disappointingly like a plain chocolate sponge with warm sauce. They agreed and removed it from the bill. The others loved the lime tart and cheesecake. Wait staff were friendly, professional and helpful. Will be heading there again via First Table to try some of the other delicious sounding items.

Seafood chowder has a lovely consistency and balance of ingredients in it.
Loved the smoked salmon pizza and salmon main dish.
Sago dessert would taste better had the pearls been rinsed under cold running tap water and served with coconut milk and palm sugar separately.
Superb friendly and helpful staff.

Enjoyed the lovely warm room on a chilly day. Food very nice (beer battered fish & pumpkin and feta balls). Found the soup bland as if they put left over veggies in it. Was leek, kumara, parsnip. No, wouldn't recommend. Otherwise, a lovely outing at Dux Dine
