Stayed for one night at this atmospheric gem. Open fires and broad oak stairways go to create that traditional feeling of comfort. The staff were very knowledgable, and helpful, making us instantly feel at home. Outside there can be very few locations so dramatic, with beautiful mountains literally on your doorstep. On our journey up the mile long driveway, we even encountered a magnificent stag.
Highly recommended.

Please see seperate 3/5 review of Hotel.

The food here is astonishing, standing out for miles around including Perth and Braemar.

Only poor elements are the decor: the bar is horrible - think 1970s youth club tuck shop. It really needs ripped out and started again. The decor in the restaurant is uninspiring compared to the rest of the hotel - it's badly in need of wood panelling or interesting wallpaper, an open fire and better flooring.

The food was exsquisite although strangely (we were on an eat/stay package) we were not offerred additional items available to dining only customers. In my experience this is and should be standard practice to offer this for a supplement which is quoted on the menu. For this reason, we couldn't indulge in the amazing looking cheeseboard and chocolate fondant being enjoyed by others - they just weren't on the menu we were given. Bizarre as I would happily have helped fill their coffers a bit by paying a supplement.

Saying all of the above, I can't recall eating better food in a Scottish Restaurant with a good emphasis on Scottish ingredients. The staff were knowledgable when it came to the menu and very attentive. A particular standout was my Wife's Beetroot 3 Ways dessert.

Given that the purpose of a restaurant is to eat in, I'll give it 5 stars but if the other stuff bothers you, watch out.

Forty-five of us - family and friends - had a wonderful time at Dalmunzie last weekend. About a dozen of us stayed, provided with large and very comfortable rooms. Our cocker spaniel was made to feel equally welcome! The new chef, Richard, produced an excellent set menu, carefully chosen to ensure we could enjoy local(ish) fare including delicious smoked trout, pork and crackling, and strawberry sorbet. The service was faultless and we all had a top time. Most important of all, my mother the Birthday Queen, enjoyed seeing friends and relations all celebrating together. Dalmunzie is in good hands!
