Outstanding find - worth a big detour if you can get a table

Went for an evening meal with American friends and I wish there were more restaurants of this quality in seaside towns . Everything was faultless from the welcome through drinks ( a love of someone's life had been to assemble a huge range of whisky ) and the dinner itself . The cooking is up to... read more

If I had to sum up our experience on our Anniversary Meal, I would say, "Attention To Detail". Upon arrival, we were greeted by a very nice maitre D' who led us to a lovely sitting room and took our drink orders. Once our table was ready and we had looked over the menu, we were seated in the dining... More

It's Not often that you don't have some niggle with a restaurant. This place was faultless! We ate here and it was among the best dinning experiences I've had for a long time. The taste and quality of the food was absolutely exceptional. The combination of flavours was Michelin standard. It's really that good. There was amazing balance and real... More

Don't be deceived by the unimpressive exterior. The food at the Sunny Brae is truly delicious. The service was attentive but unobtrusive. The overall ambience was quiet, but relatively relaxed. Food was beautifully presented and delicious. I will definitely be back.

Nairn was our first stop in a 2-week tour of the Highlands. We stayed 3 nights as it is a very pretty place with a long beach walk and easy access to wonderful castles and historic sites. During our visit it was my husband's birthday, meriting a special dinner, but I had neglected to plan ahead! Our kind hosts at... More
