Visited this restaurant a few times & was happy with the first few visits, however, the last time we dined here I ordered the burger which was undercooked and the sides received with it was much less than I'd been given before. Nice atmosphere and clean and tidy place but won't be going back!....

The chef is excellent and the produce used is of a very high standard. One can spend Continental-like hours of time eating; no one rushes you,

Booked restuarant for my wife's birthday. We were a group of 12 and although they made a mistake with starters the service and food was very good. Very nice surroundings at very good prices

The Hotel Restaurant is first class, good food, good wine, good service, in lovely surroundings and not too pricey, what more can you ask for. The entry from the car park cuts through the bar which is a quiet busy with the local's, best enter from the front and avoid this.

We found this hotel at the far end of Carnoustie on the last day of our short break. If we had found it earlier we would have returned. Food was perfect and really reasonable. Fantastic - a must if you are in the area.

Food was good, prices reasonable. The waitress was less than enthusiastic. We will return as it's the best local restaurant we have found. Childrens menu wasn't just your usual chicken dippers or pizza. It was proper food which makes a nice change.

Four of us were staying in Carnoustie and booked to eat here at 7pm. The boys were late in from the golf so we phoned to ask if we could slip the booking to 7.15pm. We were told that wasn't possible as there was a party of 12 expected then. We then asked if we could book for 7.45pm instead... More
