Cuisine: A La Carte, Family

Whether you’re looking to catch up with friends or for a family outing, this brand new bar and bistro is sure to be the perfect venue.

A short stroll from St.Kilda’s many glorious beaches, it is run by the team behind the much loved Black Dog cafe in Dunedin Central. Expect the same easy-going neighbourhood atmosphere, homely interiors and crowd-pleasing grub.

A large play area and dedicated kids’ menu makes this one perfect for young families, but grown ups will be as impressed by the food as they are. The eclectic menu really does have something for everyone, from seafood salads to fresh fish of the day and a wide selection of delicious meat dishes.

Not hungry enough for a main? The starters are a real strong point here. Mozzarella and parmesan croquettes in chipotle mayonnaise are gooey balls of delight, while the antipasto platter with homemade pickles is perfect for sharing.

Enjoy a small collection of quirky cocktails including the decadent ‘toblerone’, while little ones can join in with a colourful cup from the mocktails menu. Cheers to that!

Fabulous meal and service. We both had the steak meal and it was cooked to perfection. Can't wait to go back and try the rest of the menu.

Fabulous!
The standard of food here is fabulous! My wife and I dined in the Equinox bar and restaurant and every dish we tried was creative and tasty and nourishing. I had the hazelnut chicken for starter and it was excellent. I had the steak for main course and it came with a wonderful mushroom sauce and vegetables and was so tasty. I tried a glass of each of the two Pinot Noir wines on the menu to polish it off and it was a terrific meal. My wife started with the tomato soup and had the fish for main course. She was very impressed with both courses. We highly recommend this restaurant for excellent food.

A great way to spend a cold spring evening in Dunedin. A sunny spot in the window with a view over the Racecourse was a great start. The meals arrived quickly and were delicious. The Antipasto starter was extremely enjoyable and especially enjoyed the generous cheeses.

Delicious food. Attentive waitress. This restaurant would be a great venue for a large group.

Lovely family friendly restaurant.
It was nice, pork belly was tasty as was the chowder.
Service was great, very friendly.

- dined at Equinox on

Could not fault our meals. Seafood chowder was one of the best I've had. Steak cooked to perfection. Kumara wedges were crunchy and the stuffed chicken breast was fantastic.

What a lovely find and so nice to see the revamp of this restaurant....great kids area and taseful decor and surrounds. The service was great and we enjoyed the fun kids menu. Both our kids enjoyed the crumbed chicken strips and chips, although it must be mentioned if your kids are a little older they may need a side order or extra chips or bread as they are not overly large portions. The stuffed chicken breast and salmon mains were delicious....not your normal chips and salad on the side, but with risotto's veges and lovely sauces. Worth a visit and a great family dining option. Enjoyed our night - thanks!

Equinox has a nice open set up. The young girl that served us was great. We got the croquettes for a starter and then the pork belly as a main. This was very delicious and filling though we would have loved some pork crackling on the top to even out textures.

Had a really lovely evening here. Our waiter was so friendly and the food was really good. Kids have a massive play area which is clean and had a variety of things in - always good so the grown ups can chill out! My 7 year old son said this was the best restaurant he's ever been to - you can't get a better review than that!!

Our dining experience at Equinox exceeded our expectations. 2 adults and 2 pre-schoolers very well fed . We were amazed at the standard of the adult meals. Definitely would return with friends and ideal for large gatherings. Relaxing atmosphere. Well done.

Food was serviced quickly and efficiently.
Could watch some of the horse races from where we were seated.
Lovely tasty food enjoyed by all.

- dined at Equinox on

Such a delicious meal topped with fantastic service! Couldn't recommend enough. Great kids area with plenty of space rather than feeling confined to your seat. Going out for dinner with young children can often be a bit stressful but this restaurant was excellent. Thank you so much and we will definitely be back.

Its a new restaurant in Dunedin providing wonderful food and good service. We were greeted and seated and the staff had good positive interaction with the customers. The food was good - flavoursome and good sized portions. It was a lovely evening and it was good to see the place starting to buzz as the evening wore on. Thank you!
