Good food and good atmosphere..

Three of us dined here, and all were full of praise for the food. Nacho out server was very polite and served us well with recommendations. Prawns, calamari were our starters, we had two meat pizzas where the base was top class, as if in Rome it was so tasty. The desserts were great, pile up the... read more

Not a busy night when compared to how it's been previously when passing by, although tonight was our first night dining here. Open plan kitchens and an open plan restaurant area facing the main thoroughfare within the hotel, yet we were asked whether we wanted a quiet area. Led through to a separate annex just off the main kitchen area... More

There's a sense of theatre at Deseo where you can see the chef's doing their thing while the fresh produce is on show allowing you to choose exactly what you want to eat (including catching the fresh lobster). I had one of the best beef dishes I've ever tasted here - it was sublime; a piece of food heaven. The... More

Food is generally of a high standard. Good atmosphere with young kids welcome. Wide choice and the menu varies fairly frequently. Typically good service you would expect. Josper grill means fish and meat is very tasty

Deseo is fabulous if you just want a quick bite, or nothing to rich (or expensive) caters for all sorts of tastes

Just had time for a quick bite at Deseo before the car back to Edinburgh. Opted for the chicken caesar sandwich on warm focaccia, a glass or Peroni and a Turkish red recommended by our helful and efficient Polish waitress. Good fun

There was a great range of food, and the staff were extremely accomodating to allergies. They were attentive, and made great recommendations. The service was very personalised!

We were staying at Gleneagles & on the first night ate at the Desio restaurant. We both had fish which was very well cooked. Service was very attentive - a very good meal but a bit pricey.

We chose to dine in this restaurant because of the informality. Everything was first class, Service was attentive, a wide choice of food from Pizza/ Pasta to excellent meats and fish. We chose Lamb which was delicious , followed by the Dessert Table- too much to choose , all looked great. It was interesting to watch a well organised kitchen... More

We had a large lunch here, as part of our group retreat to Gleneagles, and the staff could not have been more helpful. There was also an abundance of food provided for the buffet lunch.
