Good Food Guide - - Dunedin -

An ur­bane space with a lively neigh­bour­hood bistro feel, No 7 Balmac com­prises a day­time cafe and a more in­ti­mate evening restau­rant. The menu could be de­scribed as a Kiwi take on clas­sic French bistro fare – su­perbly cooked Cardrona merino lamb rump is per­fectly com­ple­mented by car­rot cumin puree, bar­ley tabouli and pick­led car­rots, for ex­am­ple, and a wood-grilled lemon and thyme-in­fused quar­ter chicken comes with hand-cut chips and aioli. There’s also a good se­lec­tion of veg­e­tar­ian dishes, as well as shared plates and sides. Desserts are a strong point – don’t miss the black doris plum bombe alaska. The ser­vice is friendly with­out be­ing over­bear­ing and the wine list is well cho­sen, plus there’s a good se­lec­tion of craft beer and non-al­co­holic drinks. 7 Bal­macewen Rd, Maori Hill, ph: 03-464 0064, no7bal­ Break­fast & lunch 7 days, din­ner Mon-sat; mains $29-$45
