Had both lunch and evening meal here and both times had a really pleasant meal with good service . Had the best prawn pizza anywhere on our last trip and was very good value for a hotel of this calibre. Would highly recommend for a relaxed evening

The manager contacted me personally, and provided us... More

Pretty average meal here, overall tasty but otherwise expensive for what it was. Friendly service but several wee mistakes in our orders that didn't fit the 5* claim.

A lovely restaurant with attentive staff and a warm and inviting atmosphere. Great choice on the menu and the ability to deviate away to accommodate the tastebuds. Great overall.

I came to Deseo with my parents, who are members, to celebrate my engagement. Living in London I appreciate we have access to fabulous Tapas restaurants but this was hugely disappointing and overpriced. We ordered several tapas dishes and one spaghetti carbonara. Padron peppers were in fact bell peppers, and the so called iberico ham was the fatty bits from... More

As with a few of the restaurants at Gleneagles resort, this is not brilliant! The service was fairly slow. My main course of seafood linguini was as hot as a hot madras curry, but more annoying than that is that having given the staff my Gleneagles membership card, which entitles members to a 20% discount, the bill arrived at the...
