Otago Polytechnic

Welcome to Technique Training Restaurant - Dunedin’s premier training restaurant.

Located at Otago Polytechnic’s Dunedin Campus within the heart of the university and stadium districts, Technique Restaurant, on Harbour Terrace, offers a diverse menu, excellent service and a cosy, ambient environment for lunchtime and evening dining.

Technique Training Restaurant is a successful initiative established by the Food Design Institute, training our future chefs, hotel managers and restaurant staff under the guidance of industry professionals. We support the use of produce from local suppliers and campus gardens and our staff and students are committed to using sustainable practices.

We also host a wide range of themed events throughout the year.

  • Morning Tea - from 10.00am with the last seating at 10.30am
  • Lunch - from 11.30am, with the last seating at 12.45pm
  • Dinner - from 6.00pm, with the last seating at 7.30pm

Lunch service runs Thursdays and Fridays over 20 selected weeks during term time. Dinner service runs Wednesday to Friday from October 18 to 27.

Technique Training Restaurant is fully-licensed. We are not a BYO restaurant as our hospitality students sell wine as part of their training and assessment requirements.

We will check availability for the date you have selected and confirm your reservation accordingly.
