Really enjoyed our visit for breakfast. Food and surroundings were excellent. There was only one other couple in the restaurant during our visit.
Service would have been five star had we not been given and payed for the other couples bill which we didn’t notice until we had left.

Hi there,
Just to say whilst we were very satisfied with the quality of food and of service, we were more than a little concerned
How close the next table was. If I moved my chair back at all , the chair hit the chair behind which was also a table of four.
On reflection, we should have asked to be moved, however it was a special occasion and we were entertaining guests
And did not wish to cause a fuss. In these times it is difficult to understand why the staff were filling all the tables close to each other when there were ample vacant tables to allow sensible social distancing between all.
We will return but on reflection will have no hesitation in future to ask for a change of table.

Service was very polite but very slow. Not busy so was quiet atmosphere. No raspberry gin from bar, had ran out, surprising for hospitality. Used to be chunky fries which made my dining better for me. Now skinny fries which made it feel like a McDonalds. Restaurant was very clean and staff very presentable and very polite, good staff and very accommodating.

We love visiting the Dunes Restaurant as it’s always amazing food, excellent service & good value for money.

We also received a very decorative “Anniversary” plate with complimentary chocolates which was very much appreciated.

We were met upon arrival with not the best of greetings we were then seated at a table which was next to a door which was continually opened by staff and customers alike to either serve food outside or for customers to take children away from their table which for me was really cold and certainly not comfortable. The Dunes was extremely busy and noisy due to a large booking staff had no interaction with the customers service was poor and when I mentioned this upon leaving the female server said that they were really busy and could not provide a full service certainly no excuse in dealing with the public. I have been to the Dunes before and was so looking forward to returning with my sister as a birthday present left feeling utterly disappointed.

This restaurant does not cater for people with allergies
I think that your menu is very restrictive and the quality is not up to standard
We had to send the french fries back to the kitchen, they had been reheated and were not palatable
Having had the experience of dining at turnberry we expected this to be similar and as it was a birthday treat it was very disappointing

The restaurant itself is a very nice place to be. Spotlessly clean, modern decor and great views across the dunes. The staff were excellent, very well presented and attentive. The food was excellent but the portion sizes were very small taking into account the prices.

Efficient friendly service. Excellent food, well presented. Good portion sizes. Small plate instead of a main meant I could have the fabulous rhubarb and custard dessert. Risotto and pea soup were both very tasty.

Food and service quality was excellent but the food was expensive for what you get and drinks are extortionately expensive. Probably looking at almost twice the price of other good restaurants.
While you do expect to pay a bit more for a quality restaurant in a lovely setting, I felt a little “cheated” with the price of the drinks.

Nice restaurant with a good view and ambience. The food was quite good, but slightly too salty. The service was keen but overly intrusive.
