Our meal was good we sat on the patio which was wonderful except the service was very slow and inattentive . Hoping they were short staffed if not they need to put another waiter to help out.

Most certainly Dune is one of the better restaurants on Nantucket. Centrally located, just a 2 minute walk (0.1 mile) north of Main Street. We had made a reservation using Open Table and requested a quite romantic table for 7:30 PM. When we arrived we were escorted to the outdoor area towards the back of the building. The area is...

Excellent service, food was delicious and they have options for children. Space is a bit small but, worth a visit.

This was a great find. We only stumbled across it because our usual restaurant of choice was closed that day but we were not disappointed as we now have another great restaurant to choose from. The actual restaurant almost had a Mediterranean feel about it which was lovely and the washrooms were immaculate and very tastefully decorated. The chef not... More

Cozy restaurant with first rate staff. Beet salad was great! And I do not like beets. Fish was about as good as fish can be. Wonderful experience.

We had a delicious dinner at Dune. The crispy soft shell crab appetizers was one of the best bites I've ever had. The restaurant is definitely worthy of a special occasion celebration. That said, what keeps me from giving it a full 5/5 are two things: we found the service lacking a bit, especially at the host stand. Second, our... More

Excellent dinner for my family on our last night. Had a 8pm reservation from open table. Seated immediately at a nice table insider. Food was interesting and tasty, service was pleasant. Expensive, but that was no surprise. Nice place for a special meal.

After scouting the very compact downtown for a lunch venue it was Dune that made the pick thanks to its deliciously seasonal sounding menu. I can only assume the evening crowd has the pleasure of sitting in the beautiful dining room inside the house as the lunch-goers were all seated in the outside patio; a covered area that felt like...

nice place. I ate 4 appetizers including soft-shell crab, duck confit, and asparagus & potato vichyssoise. Nice wine list, nicely spaced tables.

While vacationing in Nantucket, our inn keepers recommended the restaurant Dune. We checked reviews on Yelp and they were good so we made a reservation. The host sat us in a charming upstairs dinning room. A kind of cozy room with high ceilings, great architectural detail. Our server was friendly and very knowledgeable. We ordered the Halibut special which included... More
