Ate for Brea for the first time last week - I've never left a review before but felt this was worthy of one!
We ate on a Sunday night, and thank heavens we'd booked. The restaurant was nearly full, but not crowded and noisy, in fact there was a lovely cosy, relaxed atmosphere which was reflected in the style of service and the menu available.
We were served by David, who upon greeting us was polite and friendly. He was able to recommend specific dishes on the menu, and when we asked question he answered them thoroughly and accurately. He recommended the Spitting Spider Shiraz, which was a gorgeous wine and complimented the meal beautifully.
I had the pate for starter and it may have been the best I've ever had. My better half had mussels and couldn't fault them. I had one of their gourmet burgers for my main, and whilst it was a big portion it was absolutely gorgeous - this may have been helped by the extras that David's excellent service had convinced us to add on, but not one of our party of four left a thing on our plates.
After such a .big main course we had a breather before desserts and coffees - my decaf latte was delicious, as was the creme brûlée we shared.
Overall Brea is a lovely, homely restaurant in an area that is populated with Belhaven and similar chain restaurants. It serves some fine Scottish fayre at a reasonable price - but for us the service was outstanding. Our glasses were never empty, and plates and orders were dealt with promptly and politely. As the night progressed our server delighted in telling us stories about the area and the dishes, which enhanced the experience. We will 100% be back, and will be telling our friends about Brea!
