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

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

Service was first class by Darren our food server and our female drinks waitress. Our food was amazing and Dad's complimentary sweet was a lovely touch.

My wife, son and I dined here last night. Nice steaks, good salads -but for 170 GBPs for the three of us, it is overpriced for what you get. We each had one drink (beers). Steaks were good, not great. Sides (extra) were good.

Nice setting, excellent service from young waiter. Tapas starters were good followed by the Sea Bass, a little dry and overcooked but it was acceptable. If you want something less formal at Gleneagles it's a good casual dining experience.

This has more of a relaxed atmosphere in Gleneagles hotel for dining. The staff are great and the food is amazing, and quite reasonable for where you are.

No pressure to dress up and no pressure to leave when the meal was finished. Good quality Mediterranean food at reasonable price. Rock oysters were just so fresh nod the crab linguine fantastic but.....beware pasta portions are generous! Service first class - professional but discreet.
