A friend recommended we visit the Dunes when we were on PEI and boy are we glad we did. It was probably the most fun thing we did on the island and by far the best meal. The place is quite an eclectic mish mash of architecture, garden, galleries and restaurant. We had a wait for our meal and it... More

The gardens are very nice and the studios provide an eclectic assortment of objets d'art. I had the chicken breast stuffed with goat cheese and blueberries, roasted new potatoes and sautéed veggies. All were superb!

Last day in PE and we had seen advs for this venue. It was cloudy so we thought we'd take a drive. We were staying near Belfast on the East Coast drive and it took us about 45 min. Is about 20 min North of Charlottetown. We were happily surprised that is was in fact a destination in itself. You... More

My husband and I treated ourselves to a quiet dinner out at the Dunes. The meal was delicious, however the restaurant was hot. The Gardens and artwork were great eye candy too! An enjoyable adult evening out.

Life is Good! This is a beautiful restaurant surrounded by artwork; you're basically in the middle of a gallery. Mussels, chicken, fresh fish,, nice presentation, and great desserts all served by beautiful young waitresses. A little pricey, but worth the experience.

We enjoyed a delicious lunch overlooking the stunning gardens on our recent visit to PEI. It's also fun to peruse their lovely gifts and artwork. Truly a special place and well worth a visit!

Hostess was a bit weird. We waited by the bar on the upper level to wait for the hostess. Made eye contact and even smiled at her but she said nothing. Turns out the "entrance" to the restaurant is on the bottom level. Figured it out ourselves and once we moved to the right spot she then was willing to... More

My husband and I along with two friends visited the Dunes Studio Gallery and Cafe on Aug 3. The gardens and the studio are definately worth the trip to Brackley Beach. The artisan work is extraordinary, the pottery, the jewelery, the local art not to mention the fine art and furniture is a must see. The gardens are full of... More

This place has everything from a dedicated island art gallery, stunning imported goods, as well beautiful pottery/glassware/jewellery/etc made by some of the regions top artists. There is of... More

So glad we stopped by while on vacation! We had lunch, it was pretty good - fresh healthy food - a little pricey. Service seems a little lackadaisical if you are in a hurry. The place was busy and the seating is a little close, although the space is light and airy. If I lived here I would probably come... More
