The Venue

Ombrellos Kitchen and Bar

Ombrellos is the best place around for casual drinks, dining and all kinds of functions. Check out our menus pages for information on holding a family or corporate dinner, or holding a private party or drinks function. If you're not familiar with Ombrellos, browse through our gallery below!

Ombrellos Bar

The Ombrellos Bar is home to 12 of our 15 beer taps, and is our home-base for brunch and lunch service. The bar seats up to 50 people (80 with adjacent outdoor seating) for a dinner function and, along with adjoining courtyard, can cater for more than 100 people attending a drinks function. The Ombrellos Bar has direct access to the street and courtyard, an indoor woodburning fire and its own toilets.  

Ombrellos Restaurant

The buildings at the South end of Ombrellos make up our villa restaurant. The largest space seats up to 40, function-style across two spaces separated by a set of double doors and contains its own bar and French doors to the courtyard. The internal doors can be closed off to suit private groups of up to 25, and 14. Cosy and quirky, the restaurant is a great spot for a great dinner, either alone or with friends. We also use it for cocktail functions, meeting rooms and lunch and brunch dining. Two smaller dining rooms seating up to 12 upstairs and 10 downstairs complete the villa restaurant, along with covered seating in our private courtyard.

Ombrellos Courtyard

Ombrellos Courtyard is Dunedin's best casual outdoor dining and drinking space with room for many, and no pesky street noise or car fumes! With an open fire and several heated areas there is light weather cover;  you can enjoy our courtyard spaces (nearly) all year round. For functions, the courtyard space is often divided into two - one for large bar functions, another for restaurant dining. Our private, enclosed courtyard has adjacent toilets and direct access to the street.

Private Dining Rooms

Ombrellos has a number of spaces that you can use for private dining. Our most popular for groups of six-12 people are the Crowe's Nest, perched upstairs in the original restaurant with views across the courtyard; and the PDR, a wee brick-lined haven in its own peaceful corner. Talk to us about booking one of these rooms for your dinner!
