Went with for a works night out on Saturday, on arrival we were seated and menus were handed out. It took around 20 minutes for the waitress to then come and take our orders. On arrival of the food, the portions were a good size and tasty. Unsure if I would return again, as not in town that often.

Such a lovely place to stop in for lunch and cocktails. I am so pleased it was my first stop on Dundee! And now that I live here will be going a lot more. The staff were so friendly and chatty and the food was very tasty.

I visited Braes today with my husband to watch the football and get a bit of lunch. Upon arriving the gentleman working behind the bar was very pleasant and offered us menus and took drinks order. Food arrived promptly and was fine. It wasn't until finishing our meal that the empty dishes were left on our table for 15 mins... More

We had an unplanned lunch stop on a Sunday and found this place by chance. It was busy but a table was available overlooking the Tay. A decent sized menu with good options for vegetarians. There is also a good choice of wine and beer. We had very quick service and the food was well presented. It was well cooked... More

Braes is a pub that seres food but manages to satisfy both elements. The staff are knowledgeable, friendly and helpful. The food is more interesting than most pub menus and has a hint of exotic in the occasional specials. There is a wide choice of beers and the guest beers change regularly.
