“Braes restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013

Been in Dunoon for 3nights and found this restaurant on last night, Sunday 17th February. The food was excellent and such a welcome surprise as we could not find a good eatery in Dunoon.First time in a long time I managed to order a " Blue steak" and actually get a superb one and not have to return it as I always have too much to the embarrassment of my wife. Excellent chef knows what he is doing. Also the premises are modern and the staff very friendly and also know their job.

“Totally Fantastic!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013

We have been fortunate enough to dine at The Braes on a few occasions now when visiting friends in Dunoon and can honestly say the place is fantastic. Anyone else reading our review, please discard some of the other negative reviews you may read, you will have a lovely experience when visiting this restaurant. The newly refurbished decor, the friendly staff, delicious food and general atmosphere is simply first class and to top it off, it's also brilliant value for money. On our visit today our food was again so good we felt obliged to compliment the Chef, only to hear the main Chef was off today and it was another young 18 year old Chef who was doing the cooking, it was truly 10 out of 10 and we look forward to our next trip to Dunoon already.
