We came along to try the Trust a Chef menu not really knowing what to expect... and it was incredible! The food was amazing, the staff were lovely and Glenfalloch is a beautiful environment to eat in. Definitely one of my top food experiences ever!

Glenfalloch is always a good idea. Top-notch service provided by very attentive & welcoming staffs. Our 5-course Trust the Chef dishes were absolutely beautiful, fresh, creative, and tasty... worth every dollar. I seldom do restaurant reviews but Glenfalloch really stands out in the Otago region, would highly recommend Glenfalloch to all of our friends ;)

Once again a beautiful meal! We chose the 5 course Chef's choice and each course was a delight to the palate. Exquisite flavours explained to us before sampling. The atmosphere is beautiful and we look forward to using the new deck when warmer temperatures arrive. This is the best. If you have not had the opportunity to visit, it is a must. Many thanks,

Great experience from the moment we booked to the moment we left the carpark. We chose the 5-course meal. Presentation and variety - top-notch. Full of lovely flavours and inventive combinations, without being weird. This is a kitchen that has confidence and no need to do funny things to impress. Still, the dishes were surprising in many ways, delighting the senses. We took our own wine and the wine server knew his stuff, recognising the wine we brought and presenting it flawlessly to us. The waitress was friendly, knew the food and made just the right amount of intelligent conversation to make our evening memorable. If you are a Dunedin local, do go on a Thursday! The restaurant is not cheap by all means, but it is excellent value for money when you compare the quality and range of food served, the setting and the service. Next time you look at the rather large bill after going to one of the crowded, 'more of the same' venues in Dunedin, consider my review and give your senses a culinary holiday at Glenfalloch. Finally, we'll go back, and that says a lot.

The meal and service was wonderful but if I would have liked to see some Australian Shiraz and Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc on the wine list.

We celebrated our mothers 80th birthday at Glenfalloch. We requested the “Trust the chef” menu which was a little bit scary not knowing what we were going to get, however was blown away by the beautiful plates that were presented to our tables. Every element was delicately constructed and not only visually appealing but the favours were amazing.

This is the third time we have been to this lovely restaurant and would come more often but for the hour plus drive! We cannot fault anything about the food, service etc which was superb. When we have our overseas visitors this summer, stand-by, this will be our first stop. Well done all of you and grateful thanks for another memorable evening. A bientôt.

I read about Glenfalloch and then a friend in Christchurch said, "Oh, it's really good." My experience was really super from the lovely garden setting and view of bay, the excellent service, to the scrumptious food. I loved it all.

Fantastic food; trust-the-chef menu was excellent, great balance of textures and flavours. Reasonable cost given the excellent fare, with the BYO option making it more affordable. Service was friendly with good timing between courses. Glenfalloch should be widely promoting this great local restaurant.

Was a lovely setting, looking forward to summer there without the building works. Adult food was very good the children’s menu was not so good. Be great if they could offer a smaller adult option for the under 12 that has a more adventurous palate!

Another fabulous meal at Glenfalloch which never fails to disappoint. The food, the dining room and the service is all top class. My only (tiny) criticism is that it was a little chilly sitting right next to the window. We can't wait to come back for another lovely meal with you.
