Awesome stop..great shopping, even better grounds and meals

We try to get to PEI every couple of years, coming back in Sept for business, golf and relaxation..the Dunes is a must visit..my wife loves the shop and grounds..lunch and dinner..best bread pudding in the world. Places like this make the island the attraction it is. Thanks.

This place came to us by recommendation, and we thoroughly enjoyed our stop here to stretch our legs after a long day in the car and enjoy a delicious, fresh-seafood lunch (crab cakes and steamed mussels) before carrying on to walk the beach. The gardens were beautiful (and provided a great spot to take a few photos) and the gallery... More

We always return to the Dunes when on the Island. It is memorable for many reasons ... the atmosphere and eclectic items they carry... the fact that they make the plates they serve you on... that their gardens are right there you are eating from ... and fresh flowers appear on your plate that you never have tasted before!

The setting is lovely. The food was very good, especially the scallops, but somehow the experience just didn't cut it. Prices were expensive, so maybe I just expected more polished service and a more special experience.

I just went here for the first time, after driving by many times on the way to the beach. It's a lovely set of stores filled with beautiful items and a friendly staff. It's worth a stop! The cafe was closed when we were there, so we didn't eat.

During our tour of the island, we stopped at Dunes. Upon entering you see the artwork and pottery. Directly behind is the cafe. Our visit was too brief. Upstairs you can see an overview of the beautiful gardens with artwork from Bali. Directly behind the gardens is open farmland that contrasts nicely with the gardens. You'll want to make time...

This is our first time at the Dunes this year. We arrived on time and were immediately shown to our table near a window to allow us to see the beautiful gardens. The hostess was helpful and explained the evening special, served us water and introduced us to our server. The menu was varied and we began with a green... More

Some neighbors in our present RV Park (KOA Cornwall, PEI) tipped us to this outstanding restaurant. So, for our last meal out in PEI, we went to the Dunes. Eclectic pottery, wood carvings and jewelry at the gift shop, and the restaurant was five star. Wife and I both had a bowl of the chef's "award winning" fish chowder, and... More

We had a lovely lunch here overlooking a beautiful garden and artists works. The lobster quiche was plentiful and delicious. Overall , a little pricey... $3.50 for coffee.
