Best little wine bar/restaurant we have found. Sits about 20 people at one sitting so fir dinner I suggest u book. I am GF & the variety of food available is wonderful. I had blue cod on a sweet potato sour dough bun, delicious. My husband had a medium rare steak & frits. Dessert- all GF, lemon tart with doris plum ice cream, oh boy it was delicious & a mish mash? With berries & crushed meringue & cream & coffee was good also. Most definitely worth a visit. A+

The Brew Cafe & Bar is a small, extremely friendly and relaxed venue with wonderful friendly staff who offered us a lovely evening. It is no surprise that there are many locals who come in (going by the familiar greeting they received) and with the cosy setting, it is easy to chat to the friendly folk around or not - depending on what takes your fancy.
The food was absolutely fabulous. We ordered a bread and dips starter which was delicious - the bread was fresh and truly fabulous. Hubby ordered a fish and chips meal and I ordered the steak - both of which were great. The food was tasty, beautifully presented and really good sized portions. The steak was melt in the mouth and the fish was fresh and full of flavour too. Against our better judgement, we did order the NY Chocolate Brownie with salted caramel sauce and ice cream - I have never seen a Brownie beat hubby but it did! It was too nice to not eat and out of pure greed, we tried to finish it off to no avail.
Thank you for a lovely evening with great food, service and ambience. Its truly delightful to find a nice place that is not in the central city but just far enough to feel you're not in the thick of it!

A little bit privileged to be the very first First Table guests at The Brew last night. Really lovely staff with super friendly service. At no time felt rushed even though the place is obviously a busy favourite amongst locals; with the cosy warm room, ambience and perfect temperature beer it's easy to see why! Difficult to choose from the menu as it all looked so good. My partner knew she couldn't manage the delicious Potato and Leek soup as well as a main and dessert, she finally settled on the Pulled Pork Nachos which she really enjoyed. I had the Beer Battered Blue Cod (3 pieces) which was very tasty with chunky hand cut chips. Dessert for both of us was the Chocolate Brownie with salted Caramel sauce and Vanilla Bean ice-cream - YUM!!! The whole experience was super and we'll definitely be back! Thank you The Brew team - a fabulous "First Table" literally! :)

The meal was well presented and tasty. We all had the chocolate brownie dessert and were surprised that its size and accompanying cream and ice cream were a not too sweet and delicious conclusion to the meal. The staff were friendly and attentive.

First table experience was incredibly easy. Quick and simple website. Loved being rewarded for looking for a promo code! The restaurant was very nice. A lovely hidden little bar in Dunedin. The main courses were very good but the dessert was amazing! Definitely recommend this to any one. Very fast service and very friendly and approachable. Loved it

My wife enjoyed the mussel dish and my steak was cooked to perfection. The garlic butter come in a separate container and was easily spread onto the steak.
Heaps of fries and onion rings for the hungry.

Been to Brew Bar several times before. It’s always been great food, and it was again last night. Very generous portions, my wife’s steak was cooked perfectly and the batter in my fish was superb! Also a mention to the friendly and attentive waitress. Will most definitely be back again, and again! If you are looking for well cooked food at a reasonable price, and an intimate dining setting, you must try Brew Bar.

It was a wonderful evening of good food and great service. The steak I ordered was cooked to perfection and my husbands meal of fish was fresh and well cooked. Some dressing on the salad would have been great but the meal was still good. Thank you ladies for another lovely evening at the cafe.

Good sized and tasty meals, good service, the only grump was I asked in one of the dessert if I could get two half scoops of the diff ice cream as I couldn't pick, I ended up getting 1 big scoop each, however when I paid the bill they charged me extra?? Would of been nice to be told, plus couldn't eat it all. Pleasant night tho.

The restaurant was very comfy and welcoming, the food was quickly to come out and was delicious with big portions. One problem was the amount of space as I wouldn’t recommend it for a birthday party or a big group gathering. But for a family environment like we had it was great. Thanks heaps
