Visited Braes on Saturday with friends for a few drinks, and ended up not leaving! Great atmosphere, fun staff, and great selection of drinks! Went back on Sunday for breakfast to cure the hangover....and that hit the spot Will be back again soon!

On arrival were given a table then were asked if we would like to move as there was a football match on we said we would and were duly moved to another table directly under the television!!!.

Dear Reviewer Here at Braes, we would be the first to admit any issues a customer may have, and look to rectify this in an open, honest and non confrontational manner, so it is obviously disappointing when our ethos is not mirrored either via social media or in person. It is unfortunate that your comments do not tell the full... More

Food was really good and we didn't have to wait. Lovely beef nachos especially. Only criticism is that there were only 2 choices of puddings and one was sold out.

I ordered haddock risotto from the ' specials' menu. It tasted nice but there was very little fish in it, just a few flakes. I expected more fish for £8.50. Basically a handful of rissotto rice a light sauce with a few bits of fish. No wonder it is under 500 calories.

Dear Polly Dundee Thank you for your recent visit and review. It is obviously disappointing to read your review, as our Haddock & Pea Risotto still remains a firm favourite with customers. As this dish is 'Under 500 cals' I'm sure you understand this has to be a controlled portion to meet this statement, however it seems that the real... More

We picked the Braes for a bite to eat before going to a show at the Dundee Rep, it looked clean and friendly and indeed it was, the staff were friendly and attentive.

Dear Vicki Thank you for visiting Braes recently and for taking the time to leave a review.

Moroccan chicken was precooked chicken pieces, and some type of jar sauce with bland couscous, charge was £8.50. My friend had the potato wedges which looked much better and the portion... More
