Rachel Weisz is in Dunedin to film The Light Between Oceans, also starring Michael Fassbender, which began shooting in the city on Saturday.

The following day Craig and Weisz enjoyed a relaxed lunch together at No. 7 Balmac where the manager said they attracted a bit of attention.

''I was getting questioned all the time `Is that Daniel Craig, is that Daniel Craig', and I said 'Yep'," Adam Jones told the Otago Daily Times.

''We just put them in a low-key table in the corner. They enjoyed their lunch, they chilled together.

''They were awesome people, really well-mannered, really great, loved the food,'' he said.

Mr Jones shared a little conversation with the star couple.

He said they told him they were enjoying New Zealand and planned on ''cruising through to Central Otago'' for a visit this week.
