Excellent value, good atmosphere and high quality service. On normal days, ignore the menu and just chose from what you can see on display - fish,seafood, meat, pasta, etc., cooked any way you want.

Mr Loafer ordered a seafood dish that had to be returned and after being told " Chef says thats how they should be" sent them back again, after that a replacement was swiftly brought out and those were VERY good. A blip in an otherwise very enjoyable meal. Staff were very friendly and efficient, choice was plentiful and varied, cost... More

Decided to dine in Deseo rather than Strathearn & we were shown to a table in the middle of the restaurant - we quickly spotted that the table in front of us was set for 20 people having a 40th party and asked to be moved to another table which they duly obliged with a nice table near the back...

Had dinner on our first night at Gleneagles. Attentive staff, nothing was a bother, had a lovely tapas starter followed by what I can honestly say is the best rib eye steak I've ever had. Polished off with fantastic deserts and port, it was absolutely fantastic! Can't wait to go back.

We ate in Deseo on our last night, having dined in Strathearn and Andrew Fairlie on the two previous evenings. We ate in the "quiet room" at the back of the restaurant, because we had been advised that the front part could be a little noisy. I have to say that I preferred Deseo to either Strathearn or Andrew Fairlie,... More

From the moment you walk in you are welcomed by attentive and happy staff who make you feel that you are welcome. This is Gleneagles so yes the prices are above average, but I do feel you get value for money from the quality of the food to way you are treated by the staff, you will leave here thinking... More

The food at Deseo was good and tasty, but not spectacular. It's a fairly relaxed kind of place, which is fine, but the prices are a little steep for what it is and for the standard of food. The staff were friendly and attentive. I'll also say that the desert buffet was very good, enabling you to try a fair... More

Popped in for lunch to experience the new menu at Deseo. Excellent choices very freshly prepared and beautifully arranged and served. Reasonable prices for the quality of both ingredients and meal. Service fast and efficient and very friendly. Host looking after us (Darren-one of the work placement students) couldn't have done more to make us feel welcome.Décor a bit 60's... More

I came here for a combined birthday celebration with some friends. It is a shame that the aesthetic of this place is a bit like a travel lodge restaurant/canteen. The area with the meat counters etc is really great but the seating area looks so dull and generic, could have been designed by Ikea - even when it is busy... More
