Set in scenic surroundings, staff were lovely, my companions enjoyed all their courses but I only enjoyed my starter and desert, I'm vegetarian and found my main to be quite bland, I would return but order a different main next time .. Sorry for being slightly negative

Complete disregard for gluten intolerant people despite being advised in advance. Ordered soup and gluten free braed, soup and glutenous bread served, Served Christmas lunch with gluten based products resulting in my wifes incapacitation for several hours on Christmas Day. Staff not interested in people with foot intolerances. Will not return, very bad experience.

We ate here as a family on Sunday - the food & service was first class & the atmosphere excellent. The location looking out over the loch is superb even on a snowy afternoon. We regularly eat here & are never disappointed.

A welcoming and modern feel to Fonab. Disappointed by the Brasserie food and breakfast. Could do a lot more with a bit of imagination. Menu sounded better than it actually was. Elemets of the dinner were overcooked and had been sitting, whilst others were undercooked verging on being raw. Breakfast was tasteless and the boiling of an egg taxed the... More

We joined the Chaine to experience the "Best of the Best and Fonab certainly lives up to that. We ate in the Brasserie on the first night of our weekend away and thoroughly enjoyed our meal. I sometimes question why, in a relatively quiet yet spacious restaurant, staff insist on cramming what few customers there are into one small area,... More

Breakfast was a lovely start to the day! Lovely squeezed fruit juice, beautifully presented scrambled egg wrapped in smoked salmon. Good quality coffee.

After receiving afternoon tea as a gift from a very close friend I decided finally to go over the weekend, and I left bitterly disappointed with the selection of food and the lack of attention from the staff. My main gripe was that there the was absolutely no interaction from the staff dealing with the afternoon tea at the hotel... More

We had a lovely meal here. The food was fresh and the presentation very artistic. The Thai curry was not very spicy, but it was very flavorful. The setting is very romantic. We will be back again to try the sticky toffee pudding.

The Brasserie at Fonab Castle evidently belongs to a five star hotel. The service is excellent and the food really enjoyable. Try the posh fish n chips
