Found ourselves in Dunoon looking for dinner. Came across The Breas on the internet and wasn’t disappointed. Really good food, the mussels were fab. The staff are so lovely and welcoming. Give it a go, you won’t be disappointed.

Had drinks and bar snacks here out on the fantastic sun terrace. Lovely decor inside and spotlessly clean. Food was very tasty. We were there on a beautiful day and it is an absolute sun trap with great views. Definitely worth a visit.
