Had a really great time at The Press Club on a Sunday night. My sister was in town so we wanted to take her to one of the best restaurants in Dunedin! It did not disappoint. Klaudia was a lovely server and made us all...feel very welcome, she recommended the lamb and it was great! Jeremy made our cocktails (and mocktails) and they were gorgeous and delicious. Thanks as well to the chefs, Thomas and Callum, we all thought the food was fantastic.More

We enjoyed a great lunch at the Press Club. The ambience was lovely, and the food was perfect. We each chose the steak meal with a shared side of seasonal vegetables. The meat melted in our mouth. For dessert we chose the Affagato and the...trio of Chef’s Creations. These were as beautiful to look at as to eat. The service was outstanding.More
