Josh on Esplanade
I have been here a few times over the last few years since we opened Madam Woo in Dunedin. The location is great as I usually take time to go down to St Clair, get some fresh air and perhaps go for a walk on the beach to clear my head. The restaurant has a great casual vibe to it and an Italian focused menu, so think delicious bruschetta, clams, or arancini to start then into great pasta dishes. They do a great parpadelle with braised lamb shoulder. If you are travelling with kids in town, they do a fantastic pizza as well.
