Overnighting in Dumfries and searched for restaurants nearby, and up popped Bruno's. Booked and we were welcomed by very friendly and helpful staff. Seemed like a family business, with everyone displaying the same keen interest in serving customers well. Nice relaxing, well prepared delicious meal.

The best restaurant in Dumfries, wide range of food to suit all tastes. From pizza to a perfectly cooked steak, we go twice a month and have been for the past 3 years, NEVER had a bad meal yet. Highly recommended.
