    Peaceful and delicious food. Our first visit to Rae’s for lunch and we were very happy with the food and service - excellent value for money too! We enjoyed a soup and sandwich each, which was sourced from local suppliers. A real asset to Montrose and we shall be back in the near future for sure.

    I was looking forward to try Rae’a but unfortunately was in Montrose during the days they are closed. We still managed to squeeze in a lunch and it was really nice although the dinner menu looks more exciting! The vegetarian sandwich was well balanced and I particularly enjoyed the selection of local drinks. Regarding the meat options, my companion has some slight comment regarding seasoning/cooking preferences but overall enjoyed the food! I would definitely recommend, I really enjoyed the service and such a nice place to eat in Montrose!

    Great service and amazing quality food, I had wild mushroom gnocchi which was beautiful and my fiance had venison hotpot. Empty plates for all 3 courses and the bill was under £70 which was great value. Would definitely dine here again!

    It was our first time at their wine tasting nights. I have to say it was superb. The value was unbelievable, so much so I think they need to increase the price - I would happily pay more. The food was really really good and complimented the wine so well. The information about the wine was really interesting too. Will definitely be going back...thats if we manage to get a space as it will be in high demand.

    We went to Rae's last night for dinner. What a great place. The food is all locally sourced and foraged. My wife had the Plaice Blinis and the Game Ravioli, I had the Venison to start and the Game Ravioli. Both absolutely excellent. They have a great selection of wines, and the Plum Cocktail is worth a visit on its own. The service was first-class, as good as any service you get in a top restaurant in London. This is a great addition to the restaurants in Montrose and offers something different at a reasonable cost.

    Fabulous service and meal at Rae's - local produce beautifully cooked and presented. The new Autumn Menu has a lovely choice of game, fish and vegetarian options for starters and mains. The dessert menu choices made it difficult to choose just one. Most enjoyable evening with great food, wine and cocktails. Excellent value for money and quality meals. Very good service. If you haven't eaten here then I would thoroughly recommend a visit.

    Booked for the Great Angus Dinner, had an enjoyable evening. Food was great and surprisingly filling. Best course, from a non dessert eater, was dessert. The coffee and parsnip ice cream was divine. My only criticism was that the last 2 cocktails, that were served alongside the dishes, were far too strong and and, therefore, I couldn't drink drink them. I did order wine instead, which was very palatable. Overall, good experience and will return in the future.

    My son (3) and I popped into Rae’s for a spot of lunch! We had a lovely meal and my son had a clean plate by the end! He had the ‘picky platter’ which was a selection of veggie sticks, breadsticks and some dip and I had a lovely fresh salad! Both were served promptly and the staff were so welcoming and knowledgeable. Lovely location! Can’t wait to return!

    Absolutely delicious food. Cooked to perfection.Very attentive staff. We had an early dinner booking so perhaps the ambience wasn’t quite up and running initially but as as our meal progressed and more tables arrived it was more pleasant
