As a group of four we had the chefs choice menu, and were not disappointed. Every course was delicious and well presented and cooked. They even adjusted some of the dishes to our allergies so that nobody missed out on any course. It was an awesome 2 hours of dining and we will definitely be back again. Highly recommend!!!

Absolutely incredible! The setting is beautiful at Glenfalloch, and then the food is just perfect. We did the 5 course trust the chef menu, and it was some of the best food I’ve ever had - beautifully presented and so delicious. Would recommend everyone has the experience.

We tried the 5 course trust the chef with matching wine.
It was amazing.
I had some dietary things and what I was given instead of the usual was amazing. Who can make tofu not taste like poo?? The glenfalloch chefs!!! The best crumb tofu I've ever had!!
The beef was cooked perfectly, parsnip sorbet was a delightful experience and our waiter was a champ!!!
Such a great night and what a way to impress the inlaws!!!

Thanks for a great night!!

Glenfalloch Restaurant is my new favourite Dunedin restaurant. The service was excellent, the staff friendly and the setting tranquil and stylish with views out to the beautifully designed gardens. We chose the 5 course chefs surprise and were so glad we did. Every plate was a visual and gustatory delight and the sense of surprise made for a delightful and memorable experience. Even the kids menu was well received by our discerning offspring. We left feeling satisfied and keen to return.

We consider this restaurant as one of the best in Dunedin. The service is good. The Maitre d' is one of the best. The food is always well presented, fresh and delicious. We ordered the Pork Belly for entree to share while my husband had Blue Cod with Mussell Froth and I had the Canterbury Lamb. Dessert was doughnut, chocolate mouse and ice cream. I hope they had sugar free and dairy free options. The ambiance was gorgeous. This is one restaurant people need to visit when they are in Dunedin.

A beautiful setting on a lovely night set the scene. "Trust the Chef" was accompanied by a wine pairing for each of the 5 courses. Both were brilliant. The staff were attentive and friendly. Such a thoroughly enjoyable evening we will be sure to return and bring friends/family, especially those that visit out of town, to show off some of the best that Dunedin has to offer.

Really brilliant experience of trying 5 courses of the ‘trust the chef’ option on the menu, It was a journey for sight and taste - beautifully presented, strange but delicious! Some ingredients were not like a form I have ever tried them in. My favourite was the citrus desert. The mousse was so nutty and fluffy, complimented with a citrus sorbet and some kind of wildly fluffy and light citrus cream... I was trying to imagine how it could be so light and smooth, and I have no idea what it was but I loved it. Great to sit back and make no decisions, to not know what was next out of the kitchen was entertaining and brilliant. Thanks for the experience :)

Took my partner out for a birthday dinner last night to Glenfalloch restaurant. The food was to die for. Oh man, still thinking of all the dishes we tried, that chef is seriously talented. We had the 5 course chef surprise. Had no idea what was coming but what a delicious treat. The staff are a gem as well. The most fabulous place for dinner. I can't complement enough. Thank you guys for a stunning and delicious evening.

Excellent dining experience! Attended with our 5 year old son who said the restaurant has a “good view so bring a camera so you can take lots of pictures walking around the gardens”. He also very much enjoyed his ice cream sundae and eating most of our amazing tasting platter of desserts.

We opted for the 5-course “trust the chef” experience - and loved it. The staff talked us through each dish and it was fantastic to see local produce incorporated throughout. Each dish was beautifully presented, and the clever use of flavours meant it all tasted just as good as it looked! Would return in a heartbeat.
