We had the most wonderful ladies lunch at Raes yesterday. The setting, service and the food were all absolute perfection. Literally. Went back today for a spa treatment which was unbelievable. By far the best massage and facial I’ve ever had. Love love love Raes!!!

Don’t think so the whole restaurant is under cover but open air - suggest you give them a call to find out
