Waited at the bar for a couple of minutes as the only girl serving had her back to me and was on her phone. I ordered the mozzarella and mushroom roll, they didn't have the proper 'pretzel roll' on the menu so it came in a sub roll. The girl did tell me this when I ordered, but since it... More

Not a bad bar but the food isn't great. It's pretty bland pub food with standard buns and chips etc. It's not very expensive and service is good but if looking for food there are better bars to go to. Had to for sport and a studenty vibe to it.

Very relaxed atmosphere here which I liked and ideal for large groups of people (mainly students!). Food is decently priced, good variety, not to mention the food itself is really nice! We were part of a large group and the fact you can go up to the bar to order made life so much easier, as well as the fact... More

The lady that took our order was lovely but I think her shift finished. Food came out reasonably quickly. But that is where it ends. My friends halloumi/mushroom burger had a meager slither of halloumi and 2 mushrooms. Seems exceptionally over priced to me. I couldn't even manage half of my meal it was that bad. So so bad. No...

Tuesday was 3 pound beer and cocktail night so we dropped in and had a couple of excellent beers and a tasting plate with lots of goodies. Braes is a very friendly pub next to the Uni and close to the center of Dundee. Highly recommended for a casual beer and meal.

Was reluctant to visit after a very poor experience with food 2 years ago. Got dragged in by friends and was pleasantly surprised by the decor and general appeal of the place. Menu and drinks much improved over what it used to be. I ordered the beef meets pork burger which arrived swiftly. The food was excellent and served really... More

Always thought Dundee needed more places for brunch and Braes fits the bill. Good range of breakfast options, a constant coffee refill from the pot if you choose, good range of burgers and chargrilled options. Great at lunchtimes, great in the mornings in a part of Dundee I love (the Perth Road). Full breakfast is FULL, good atmosphere and cheerful... More

I would not call this a restaurant, but as a pub we really enjoyed it. We had one of the big sharer plates and it was plenty and tasty. The interior was nice and it was a good atmosphere. Also, the service was excellent.

Visited last minute on a Friday night as everything else busy. The place has been redone and has a nice fresh feel, food comes in quirky/rustic plates like others have said, atmosphere very lively and even a bit loud at times. Group of four and we all had the burgers with sweet potato fries. Burger on the dry side, bland... More
