Once upon a time two brothers began a competition to see who could buy the most malt whisky. Laying down their pride one fine day, the two pooled their collections together and Scotia the bar began (with over 250 single malt whiskeys on the premises). Food soon followed and now the bar and restaurant is well known for providing the people of Dunedin with a first class feed. Go with the family and give the kids warm memories they’ll treasure, take out your nostalgic Scottish Grandpa out for dinner, or grab a scotch with the lads and lassies at the ‘Doon’ Bar upstairs. A Kiwi restaurant with a Scottish twist- Scotia is a warm favourite that will keep you coming back for more.

With friendly informal service Scotia also take pride in getting to know their customers. Offering a vast product knowledge to give the diner the best experience possible, they are pros at helping you match your food and wine selections too. Big portions of hearty food with lots of flavour, the restaurant also makes everything on the premises. Scotia is known for providing a classic dining experience, with a few Scottish favourites thrown in too – such as Cullenskink, haggis, oatcakes, hogget neck.

Who could say no to a good hearty meal in a warm, cosy, welcoming atmosphere- bonny Scotia is bound to steal its way into your affections!
