Very very noisy

We popped in here for dinner last night and left with mixed feelings. Whilst my ragu pappardelle was excellent, hubby's pizza was oily to say the least. On top of all this, it was far too noisy with unruly kids. I know this is a family joint but totally out of order. I've been here for quite... read more

Really enjoyed the meal here, fantastic service and delicious food. Mid range prices with the benefit of eating within the confines of the Gleneagles hotel. Dining in luxury without the damage on the bill!

We ordered a take-away as we are staying in the lodges / houses of the hotel with a young family. The staff were charming but got our order wrong and the quality of the food was absolutely terrible. Pizza and pasta were well below decent supermarket ready meal level. Plus 'Paprika chips' had no paprika and were clearly pre-frozen and... More

I had the crab linguini and the crab had been frozen so not real taste. Very disappointing. I did tell the staff and they seemed shocked.

I visited Deseo once before and although is it quite expensive, I wanted to take my aunt somewhere special for her birthday and thought this would be a great option. I initially emailed to make a reservation and am still waiting for a reply! I then called to make a reservation, but to be honest it was quite quiet and... More

Its a bit more low key and a good place for pizzas but expect more children and less privacy. Service can be slow at times so be patient. children can make their own pizza ( they bring the ingredients to your table ) - my daughter loved this and she ate it all !

This restaurant gives those who may not be able to afford the lavish prices of the Gleneagles hotel a chance to dine in luxury. For a very filling lunch of thick cut chips, garlic sauteed mushrooms in an amazing sauce and complimentary bread with tomato butter I had to pay just £10.25! Definitely recommend and kind servers too!

My wife and I visited Gleneagles on a bank holiday in May and this meant a hotel packed with young, excited and very noisy families. We therefore expected a pretty ghastly dinner, and were truly delighted to be offered a quiet, adults-only section of Deseo. Well done Gleneagles! That is real client focus. In terms of food and service, both... More
