DineOut People's Choice Awards 2014

DineOut People's Choice Awards 2014

The DineOut People's Choice Awards have been determined by you, our reviewers for 2014.

This year we have decided to award only one winner in each level, which coincidentally is one per major NZ city.


The Sugar Club
SkyCity Sky Tower, Auckland (8.2 after 12 reviews)




Taylors on Jackson
Petone, Lower Hutt (8.8 after 12 reviews)




Tequila Mockingbird
City, Christchurch (8.1 after 23 reviews)



What are the DineOut People's Choice Awards?

Unlike many other awards that get offered, the DineOut People's Choice Awards are based purely on your reviews from July until the end of June. The judging panel isn't a known group on a known date, they are you and your everyday visits to restaurants up and down the country. It's not just one good meal they need to pull off, it's a whole year of excellence! A tough ask, so winners of the DineOut People's Choice Awards have shown themselves to be constantly fantastic.

A 'vote' for a restaurant is a review placed in the year leading up to the end of June 2014. To qualify, a restaurant must have at least 9 reviews over that time. We take this data and award gold, silver and bronze medals

So make sure you get your votes added as every vote counts!
