The service was outstanding. Nobody disturbed us with pointless questions.
The waiter and the waitress(sorry,I don’t know their names) was super kind, helpful and fast.
Thank you everything,we had a really good evening with them!

Making evening. Food and staff were brilliant. I’m a fussy steak eater but it was perfect and I’m gluten free and they catered for me with ease. Great customer service. Great night

We went for my wifes birthday with the kids - the food we had was fantastic, our only criticism was the limited menu, it didn't seem there was a huge choice. The service was great and our waiter couldn't do any more for us, he was great.

What a lovely experience eating in the fresh air on the terrace, being looked after by the manager herself. And enjoying some of their exclusive cocktails.
Food was excellent. Hake was cooked perfectly. Will be back!

Superb steak excellent salad and top notch chubby chips served by very friendly and helpful waitresses. Ice cream from the kids menu very creamy. Very quiet for a Saturday evening. Love the decor and furnishings. Deserves to be full of people enjoying high quality well cooked and presented food served by enthusiastic and attentive waitresses. We will certainly revisit soon.

The Beefeater do better steaks, by chefs who know how to time the cooking of steaks better and are better value. Cocktails were very good.

We visited for our anniversary, and sat out in the terrace area. First impressions were the look of the restaurant was beautifully decorated with vibrant music.

Our waiter Vinny was amazing extremely friendly, although I did feel bad for him as I noticed it was just him waitering tables up and down the restaurant.

We waited quite a while for our plates to be cleared after mains but this was expected when there's one person covering the floor. This is when we noticed the manager appearing.

My partner ordered a daquiri (simple daquiri) and what we received was what looked like a mojito. What's more is there was a hair inside in the drink. I alerted the manager and also asked for no ice and in a martini glass and she replaced the drink and kindly comped this off our bill which I thought was nice.

We paid our bill and sat downstairs in the bar area for further drinks but again there was quite a lengthy wait. I ordered a cosmopolitan and waited.... overall for about 20-25 minutes while I looked at the manager behind the bar who was eating canapes with a couple deciding on their food for a wedding. Then was told only then that they had no Cointreau and asked if I wanted something else, I just asked for a Pornstar martini as I was surprised by how long it took for them to let me know that something was missing from the cocktail rather than telling me when I firstly ordered it. After this my partner and I decided to just pay our bill and leave.

We both work in the hospitality industry ourselves and felt like there was a tardiness and overall lack of alertness.

Overall thoughts; Den of Bracca is beautiful and the service is friendly, food is delicious but the wait is a killer for anything. Time keeping needs to be addressed.

Went for a casual lunch, service was shocking. Waited 45 minutes for our drinks that didn’t taste right, when we told Paulo he just took them away - no apology, no offer of replacement. When I paid for lunch he was rude and didn’t care that we didn’t enjoy our afternoon, then started arguing with us and mentioned he had hardly any staff in today and had a big party in!!! Sorry but all customers should be treated with respect. The girl and other guy (apologies didn’t get your name) were doing their best considering.
I have been here a few times - the service and food has always been excellent but today was horrible.

Really disappointed was hoping it would be like the old restaurant greens. Think it's very down market now, sticky menus, very basic food, my burger did not taste like a wagu burger. Tasted like a normal beef burger! Food is average but pricey! Service is average too! Won't be returning! Such a shame

Such a shame. Building is really interesting, great vibe. Staff were very welcoming upon arrival, however…. our drinks order arrived completely incorrect, and food didn’t. At all. We were left for 40 minutes with no check ins / offers to order further drinks (we would have done).

I’ve never done this, but we offered to pay for our two drinks and left, still no sign of our food. It was very quiet, so I don’t understand what happened.

So disappointed, as we’ve just moved to the area but won’t be bank to Den of Bracca.

Lovely place and wonderful atmosphere. Staff are very friendly and we're happy to seat us where it suited. We started on the Terrance but it was a bit too humid and loud. We were big up but back downstairs and it was perfect.

The staff were very professional and we cannot say a bad word.

The food. Wow , amazing absolutely loved it and will be back.

We went for a 5:30 dinner with our kids and sat on the terrace. We were the only ones eating, everyone else was smoking and drinking. As non smokers this always irritates me. I understand that’s not the fault of the DOB but it’s a shame. The large groups around us were very very noisy. Our waiter was nice, food was enjoyable but another time, I’d avoid the terrace.

Father’s Day treat for my husband.
The young lady who served us did not know the menu and was not attentive. We had you get up to find someone to ask every time we needed anything. We had to ask for our order to be taken for the main and again for the dessert order to be taken.

When our main meal came, 2 of the meals were not right, so we had to wait for the vegetables to be cooked whilst our fish was getting cold. The food was very tasty. Thanks to the young man who came to help us when things went wrong. No complaints with the dessert.

I hope my next visit will be better.

We waited over an hour for our breakfast, we went in for Father's Day breakfast and ended up leaving at lunchtime as it was so slow.
Not once did the staff come over an apologise for the delay. When we asked for the bill I complained about the service and how slow everything was. They did apologise and give us a discount off the bill. The place is lovely inside and the food was also good.

Good breakfast let down by extremely slow service. Only 1 waiter working and he took over 40 mins to take our food/drink order. 2 other tables left as they weren't being served. We had been there for nearly an hour and a half before we got our food. Seeing as there were only 2 other tables in the restaurant at the same time as us, this was extremely disappointing. We also were not given an apology for the slow service. Will not be returning which is a shame because with the right management /staff I think this could be a really nice independent restaurant in Bracknell Town centre.
