We come here because we enjoy fresh fish and they always have the best in town. The Italian food is also good. I usually have the seasonal salad that is offered and love the polenta side. The service is friendly and efficient. In many visits we have never had a bad experience.

Wonderful Italian food in Estes Park. Traditional dishes and excellent fish (steaks too but we didn't try those). The halibut was delicious. Great service. Entry room not as nice as back rooms for seating. Make a reservation, fills up. On open table.

One of the places my wife and I look forward to when we are in Estes Park is Dunraven Inn. This year when we went both our dishes were so-so. Could have been an off night or we ordered the wrong thing but it was a disappointment. There is new management since the last time we were there -- several... More

My husband and I spent 8 days in Rocky Mountain National Park, and Estes Park, and had several restaurant recommendations from friends, but this was our favorite meal. Yes, the look inside is different, but the history is explained and all makes sense. We each had steaks, and were very happy. Service was great. Will return again!

I was craving pasta after a week of meat-heavy meals so we chose the Dunraven Inn as it was close to our lodging and had a reservation available for the same night. My hopes for a good meal sank a bit when we walked into the dark, low-ceilinged front room that was completely wallpapered in dollar bills that had messages... More

What a lovely place to enjoy an Italian dinner. I had an excellent strawberry spinach salad, the shrimp scampi, as well as the chocolate cake. The chocolate cake was amazing! Very moist and rich. I would gladly revisit again if ever in Estes Park. Unique story to go along with the history of the restaurant. Great little spot!

We always have a great experience at the Dunraven. We stop there for dinner every time we are in Estes; the last visit was better than ever, with a mushroom pasta dish that was excellent. The service and ambiance are always terrific, and our last visit did not disappoint.

When my parents told me that they wanted to host a large dinner at a restaurant in EP during a family reunion, my immediate answer was, 'The Dunraven'. It is a personal favorite, and we've always enjoyed the food and atmosphere. The staff was extremely helpful as we planned the gathering. Unfortunately, due to a health complication I was personally... More

Well when you get that big of a compliment from a 4-year-old, Joyce, you know it's real! I'm so sorry that you couldn't make it, but thank you so much for taking time to write this review. We loved hosting, and your compliments mean the world to us. Please stop in and see us soon. Cheers, Andy More

Excellent restaurant - lots of character, great food. Would highly recommend it when in Estes. Recommend calling ahead for reservations, but even if you don't have reservations and have to sit in the "entryway/lobby" it's still worth it.

It sounds like you really enjoyed your time here, and that makes me happy. Those dollar bills around the entry sure make for some entertainment while you wait, right? Thanks for all the compliments -- can't wait to welcome you back! Cheers, Andy More
