Description: Hi and welcome to Customhouse. We are here to help you have a great time here in Dunedin. First and foremost we are a casual, contemporary, cafe, restaurant and bar situated right on the water at Customhouse Quay. Great waterfront location; heritage building, enhanced with a modern feel; fresh, local flavours that won't leave you hungry; and truly good service - knowledgeable about what we offer, and our place in Dunedin, friendly, flexible and authentic.Our objective is that you make Customhouse one of your favourite places - it's up to you to decide what for. It could be your favourite place to catch up for coffee with a friend; your favourite place for a great steak off the grill and a cracking Aussie Shiraz or an earthy Central Otago Pinot Noir; your favourite place for bacon and eggs at the weekend with the family; or your favourite place for a celebration, whether it is with family and friends, or with work colleagues. We are open seven days and seven nights.During the day we have a brunch / lunch menu that includes fresh, local ingredients. Alternatively you can stop in for coffee and something from our cabinet that has a range of muffins, slices and cakes.Our evening menu features largely Otago produce including venison, a range of seafood, steaks as well as a number of well balanced lighter dishes. Fresh, local flavours that won't leave you hungry! Our bar area is perfect for that civilised drink - whether it be a nice Pinot Gris, a Cosmopolitan, or a local beer on tap.We are well set up to cater for work functions, weddings, Christmas functions or any excuse for a party that you may have. Our clients say we are flexible and will work with you to hit the button so to speak with respect to style, food, and budget. We can seat up to 200 but also have the ability to spill out onto the Quay or our outdoor area if needed!You can choose the style that best suits you. Sit down, stand up, mix and mingle, canapes or a set menu. We can also arrange entertainment or a cruise on the harbour before or after your meal - Beautiful!

Went there for a wedding. The food was nice but the woman in charge of the bar had poor people skills. She managed to offend a few people with her arrogant attitude towards babies in prams. Considering the whole venue was hired for this wedding and the couple getting married had a baby, it was a pretty poor attitude.
