We were sitting at home reminiscing about about picnics of the past when fish n'chips came into the conversation. It was a snap decision to go and get some. What a good decision - I got 3 suppers and they were all excellent.

I went here with three friends for a birthday meal. The food was great we all had the set menu choices. The staff were very welcoming. My only complaint is the restaurant was so hot. We were all quiet uncomfortable as it was so warm.

I went for the set menu, food was really good. It strangely felt like I was sat in someone's front room but the service and meal was well worth it.

Having never been to Dumfries, tripadvisor was essential in eliminating any risks. Liking Italian there were two main options but Brunos for me just edged it. I booked a week in advance and was delighted that it was only a 5 minute walk from where...More
