Atmosphere: very small. The entire restaurant was about the size of a large bedroom. If you're at a 2-top, be prepared to be very close to your neighbors. It's intimate, that's for sure! They light a candle as soon as you sit down. I will...More

Without a doubt the best meal you will find in Pinellas County. The specials are always thoughtful and fresh and the "classics," like the lobster risotto and filet are tremendous. Service is always prompt and professional. Bananas Foster is the best I've had.

The best restaurant in Dunedin. This has been our "go to" place for a special night out for over 20 years. The food, service and atmosphere are fantastic. Their menu selections are great but I always try one of their specials.

At the Black Pearl Restaurant, creating a one of a kind dining experience is our goal, every dish from the warm ciabatta bread to the homemade vanilla bean ice cream is made in house, and to order especially for you. We believe life is too short to eat bad food.
