This restaurant is an unexpected gem in Nairn. They welcomed us on short notice and created an outstanding dining experience. The venison was fabulous, the Guinea hen succulent, the Sea trout perfectly prepared. Go out of your way to dine here.

This is the best eating experience I have ever had and that's saying something. Everything is just perfect! It's a family run, beautifully presented dining room with great views over the Moray Firth, From first arrival to departure you are looked after with understated, warm personal attention.

The dining room is beautiful with white linen tablecloths sparkling clean glassware. (We are staying at the Golfview Hotel and each time I order wine my glass is not clean.. I don't like... More

We stayed at the Sunny Brae, and had dinner at the hotel our first night. It was the best meal that we had during our entire trip to Scotland. The highlight was the Sticky Toffee Pudding. Do not pass this by.

Im not a large eater by any stretch of the imagination but I do expect more for the high price tag. None... More

Have been to this restaurant many times in the past. First visit this year and never disappointed. Good selection of courses, brilliantly cooked and served. Service is first class. Cannot recommend this venue highly enough.
