We had dinner here one night. The restaurant is in a nice spot and offers great views, but the food left a bit to be desired. It was not bad, but not great, especially for the price point.

Ok, I have to start by saying my spouse and I are foodies. We thought the Dunes was middle of road compared to other options on MV. The wine list was smaller than you would expect for this type of place. Honestly, neither of us could remember what we ate several days later. It is convenient if you are staying... More

The food was average. It was nice to sit out on the deck just outside the restaurant and enjoy coffee and dessert after dinner.

My family and I had dinner at the Dunes with 4 adults and 7 children. We were sat directly next to the children's area and it was an excellent experience. Our waitress Sandy was very accommodating and eager to help us. The girls that worked in the play area kept the children engaged and entertained while we were able to... More

Ate there for breakfast while staying there. While the stay was amazing the restaurant was not. It took forever for service and we had to go back and find the server to get a drink. Food was not stellar for how much we paid.

The resort is a little out of the way but easily accessible by bus. The privacy of the restaurant combined with the beautiful view and excellent meal make it a winning combination. The staff was charming and accomodating and did everything they could to make our evening special.

Very cozy restaurant with great views. I ordered the catch of the day, "swordfish" which was well prepared and very tasty. We ordered the lobster flatbread and tuna tartare for our appetizers. They have a nice wine list, as well as a good specialty drink list. If you have kids, the babysitters here are very sweet and reliable. Kids from... More

One of the reasons we chose this restaurant was because of the water taxi, we thought it would be a nice way to see the harbor and some of the houses from the water. We showed up at our scheduled time for the water taxi only to be told by another boat that was there that apparently they had cancelled... More

Really nice restaurant with beautiful views. THe food was fresh and we loved that there was a separate, attended kids' area. Our 2.5 yr old son played while we ordered, then came back to eat a bit and went back to playing so we could have a nice meal in a relaxed setting.
