First class restaurant - food outstanding

Stayed at the hotel and the food was first class - both breakfast and dinners awesome . If looking for a special romantic restaurant or just looking for good quality food this restaurant is recommended.

We both had a 3 course menu here, this was the only option @ 42 pounds a person excluding the drinks. My wife enjoyed the setting as a new experience. I found it a bit overdone. But then I should have just not gone there. Food was very good though not extraordinary, service perfect, setting for me outdated. Go here... More

We visited for dinner having read the reviews. The food was very good, I had fish which was good and crispy with tasty sauce. As non-residents there was little said to us. Plus we seemed to be squeezed in as an extra table in the dining room. I would like to stay here and so enjoy all of the hotel.

Our enjoyment of a two night stay here was greatly enhanced by the excellent cuisine offered by young chef Graham. Here is a man on a mission to provide really imaginative dishes on a short but well thought out menu which changes daily. A fine dining experience begins with tiny but flavour packed canapés served with drinks in one of... More

We stayed at Knockendarroch for a night and dined in the restaurant. The food was excellent. Great choice and very relaxed. The lounge is very comfortable and put to good use for drinks and canapés before the meal and coffees and drinks afterwards. Great whisky collection too!

This Hotel is a top quality venue and the 2 AA Rousette restaurant is a must visit. The food is to die for and is presented perfectly by very helful and attentive staff. You won't get a better meal in Pitlochry.

This is a small hotel and the menu had a limited choice, as you would expect in such an establishment. The menu was well balanced and the dishes we had were excellent

A good choice of food all well cooked and presented. The staff are friendly and efficient and the restaurant is very peaceful due in part to how quietly the staff clear away places. Breakfasts were also of a very high quality.

We were a party of five so we had the chance to try almost all dishes in the menu, both for dinner and breakfast. Each of them was carefully prepared and very tasty!
