Mona Lisa's Smile definitely can't be missed, Ashley! It's wonderful to hear you enjoyed so much about your visit. We'd never want anything to take away from that, though, so we're sorry if the noise level caught you off guard -- it does get pretty crowded at night. Our pasta dishes really are the fan favorites around here, and we... More

We have visited Estes Park many, many times over the past 38 years we've lived in CO and have eaten at Dunraven Inn many times. The food is delicious, service is impeccable and the atmosphere is nice without being stuffy and pretentious. You can be dressed up or in a pair of jeans and you won't feel uncomfortable, which is...

We were spending a couple of days visiting RMNP. After checking out restaurant options we chose the Dunraven because they were recommended as a good place for seafood. The place is quaint and dark but you feel warm and comfortable. Our server was attentive and friendly and very informative. We chose one seafood dish and one pasta dish. We ordered... More

Simply perfect? We always love hearing which dish our guests enjoyed most, and we're absolutely thrilled yours was dessert. A lot of care and thought gets poured into everything we make here, so we feel sure you'll be equally impressed with everything you order next time. Looking forward to welcoming you back for more sometime soon! Cheers, Andy More

The Dunraven has absolutely amazing food and amazing service. It is not in the heart of Estes but rather off the beaten path and SO worth the drive. Sam the manager seated us right away and was so kind. We were then greated by our Hungarian waitress named Erika. She made the experience so wonderful as she was so kind... More

My wife and I ate at the Dunraven for our anniversary. When we arrived the place was mobbed, strike one. It is supposed to be a nice resturant but when you walk in the bar is literally wallpapered with dollar bills, very tacky, strike two.
