First time dinning here and it was very enjoyable,the surroundings were grand but the atmosphere was relaxed and the friendly service from the staff made us feel very comfortable.So many nice things on the menu it was difficult to choose,we both enjoyed our choices,plates were beautifully presented and just the right size ,left enough room to have the most delicious cheesecake for dessert.Would love to eat there again.Thank you

Once again the meal at The Grand Bar & Cafe was amazing. I had the sirloin steak (with garlic butter on the side) which was cooked to perfection. My partner had the grilled fish which he said was cooked beautifully and tasted amazing. As for the white chocolate and raspberry cheesecake words cannot express how awesome this was - every bite was a delight - even though we shared it :-)
We were not rushed through our meal and were able to enjoy the ambiance of the place. Will definitely be back to try more of the menu :-)

It was my Mother's Birthday so 4 of us ladies went for tea. What a lovely evening we had. Excellent service and beautiful meals. The mushroom entree was a hit with all of us,!! We had pork belly x2, steak and blue cod for mains. All superbly cooked and presented, yummo!!! Although the meals were plentiful 3 of us couldn't resist dessert.... they were another delight!!! We finished off our evening with a little play on the pokies. We all had a fab time. Thank you to First Table and the casino kitchen and staff!!!! You rock!!!! We'll be back

I had a tomato soup of the day which was so creamy and just perfect. Pasta was good as well and so was the steak my friend had. We made a good choice. Service was good!
Cheers

I was traveling from Christchurch.The food was AMAZING. After a long drive all we needed is great dinner. And that was it. Highly recommending the Ribs to try. Also, the portion was bigger than expected.Sadly, There was no room left for desert. Will be there next time again for sure :)

A beautiful meal in a beautiful setting. First time in Dunedin so this added to making the trip extra special. The entree of calamari was fresh and succulent, followed by 2 mains blue cod and the shoulder of lamb. Also very well portioned and delicious. Staff very friendly and attentive nothing seemed too much trouble. Without a doubt we will be back.

We enjoyed our meal at the Grand restaurant at the Casino on monday night. The service was excellent and the meal was nice. I had the fish of the day which I enjoyed. The Squid ring entree we asked to come as a main was very small in size which was disappointing and the garlic bread was lacking garlic but still it was a pleasant enough meal.

We shared five entrees between two people, maybe those entree items could be developed into main meals, beautiful tasty food. Thank you.

Came for a date night with my girlfriend. We're not local and weren't quite sure what to expect but were nicely surprised by the feel of the restaurant and the food was delicious, especially the apple pie, will highly recommend it to others! Loved the hawaiian shirts, definitely put a smile on our face. Thanks for a good night :)

We were so impressed waitress and waiter were amazing, food was presented perfectly, generously sized and tasted soo good!! Entree crumbed mushrooms were a favourite the Pork belly melted in your mouth missed the crunch on the crackle but still beautiful. The chicken stack was next level all came in a timely manner :) next time were in Dunedin we will definitely return.
