Relaxed and informal. Pricey food and small portions. No tap beer, just bottles. Staff efficient, friendly and helpful.

After a workout in the gym and before a swim in the pool I met with my Nana & Aunty for a nice but not too heavy lunch in the cafe area of Deseo. The staff were very attentive despite being busy, and the food tasted so good. We all ordered sandwiches, which were served with chips that we didn't... More

Just managing expectations here. Very open, decent food, but can be loud and not a romantic or unique experience. Much better spots in hotel. That said for a quick dinner, with kids, or when you are tired it is more than adequate.

Had a couple of vouchers to use at Gleneagles and did not fancy the full on experience of Andrew Fairlies and whilst looking through the Gleneagles website the Deseo restaurant looked interesting. On entering the hotel we were directed to Deseo, the closer we got the more concerned we got - we had the distinct feeling we were going to... 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.
