We went to the Hilton Dunkeld House for Easter Monday Lunch. It was a buffet style with starte, mains and puddings. Starters all cold- salad, pate, salmon and a cold meat selection-nothing at all for the vegetarian apart from salad. I thought this was very poor considering its a Hilton hotel. Mains were boiled new potatoes a great selection of cooked veg ( carrot, turnip, brocolli, parsnips, runner beans, mange touts) then a veggie lasagne, beef in gravy, salmon in holandaise or pork in a grain mustard sauce. Pudding were a selection of mini desserts a caramel thing, a muffin type cake , lemon tart or a raspberry meringue. These were nice light and small just enough for an end meal.We had this served with a crisp dry prosecco which bubbled in hubby's glass but not mine. The service was good and efficent with no problems. We got to have a little peak at 2 sets of parents and their offspring trying out the selections for their up coming wedding in August. The portions on those looked massive and was good to see what else they did and not just the buffet. The Garden restaurant overlooks the Tay in a nice rural country setting. Worth a visit if passing would give it a 3/4 dots better than average but not a very good yet for the lack of vegetarian starters.

Although the staff were very friendly and attentive the menu selection for dinner over 3 nights became boring and repetitive as it did not change and if it was not for a staff member suggesting that we can eat off the bar menu then we would not have enjoyed going back into the Garden Restaurant again. The breakfast buffet had plenty of variety but the hot food was mainly warm to cold and let the whole beakfast experience down.

food was all very nice, though choices could do with more scottish local options, I was a bit disappointed as I thought the food could have been better based on it being a Hilton. Staff where all really nice and could not do more to help.

Food could be vastly improved. It was like stepping back in time.
Supplements are extortionate for standard of food. Staff friendly and efficient.
