Welcome to DineOut!

What is DineOut

When it comes to dining out, it's always very easy to stick with what you know. Trying somewhere new can be a bit hit and miss - you don't want to pay out good money for a mediocre experience, or mismatch the restaurant to the occasion. How can you minimise the mediocre and maximise the great dining experiences?

This is where DineOut comes in. Browse or search through our extensive database of restaurants and cafes around New Zealand, and read reviews submitted by other diners. Did they have a great time? Was the service awesome? Food divine? Would they recommend the restaurant? DineOut reviewers are ordinary people who eat out occasionally or even regularly, and DineOut is the forum to allow their experiences to be shared.

If you would like to submit your own reviews, first you will need to register. Once your registration has been confirmed, you can add your own review from the restaurant's listing page. When reviewing, your comments are really important - think about the kind of information you would like get from a review and go from there.

Any questions? Check out our FAQ page for more information about how DineOut works. If you have any other questions feel free to contact us.
