Description: The Strathearn, the glamorous heart of Gleneagles, is one of Scotland's most sophisticated yet buzzy destination restaurants, recreating the elegance of a bygone era with a theatrical flourish. Silver butler trays are whisked with calm confidence between the grand pillars to your candlelit table, filling the air with the scent of flambéd cognac, whisky, pernod or sweet, caramelised Grand Marnier. Steeped in a rich Franco-Scottish tradition, our passionate chefs bring seasonal, locally sourced classics (the names Thermidor, Bonne Femme, Diane, Wellington, Chateaubriand, crêpe Suzette, and, of course, Scottish smoked salmon echo down the ages) to a smart, convivial contemporary audience. The Strathearn is also the home of the legendary Gleneagles breakfast and Sunday lunch.

The food is amazing I have eaten in the Strathearn about 20 times over the past few years and it never disappoints the service is very good. You will need to book though.

Everything about the meal was divine, the food, drink and service. It isn't cheap but it is excellent. My husband and I both had scallops to start and the light dressing they were served with was delicious. I had the fillet steak and my husband the sirloin. We both agreed that it was the best steak was had tasted for as long as we could remember, we shared a baked Alaska dessert. Service was attentive but it intrusive. I would definitely recommend dining here.

The food is fabulous, the staff wonderful and the setting exquisite. Having eaten in both Andrew Fairlie and the Strathearn we elected to eat here as we think it is better and from what we've heard we are not alone in that opinion. The tables are nicely spaced out and there was a pianist playing beautifully all evening. The staff are very knowledgeable and polite but also not stuffy or pretentious. One waiter even brought my husband some reading glasses as he'd forgotten his- that made us laugh- they think of everything! The food was outstanding and the time between courses just right. We didn't take the children with us this time but may do next time. They have a young children's menu and also allow children to eat from the main menu for half price which is nice for those with a more adventurous palate. There were quite a few children in the restaurant but as the tables are well spaced they didn't spoil an adults only meal!

Looking forward to next time.

This is a beautifully relaxing restaurant with excellent lighting, gentle music and a terrific ambience generally.
The food is first class and the service is spot-on.
The basic cost is about sixty pounds per head for a three course dinner, but if you want to push the boat out, you can opt for sevruga caviare or lobster thermidor at a supplement.
Breakfast here is a great adventure with so much to choose from and a great start to the day.
I'd say this has to be one of the best "Grand Hotel" restaurants in the U.K.

Quality food, great service and very enjoyable ambience. Less pretentious than Andrew Fairlie's restaurant , more sophisticated than Deseo, we aprticularly enjoyed the scallop and Red deer dishes. The wines sold by the glass were very good and enabled us to match wine too our food at reasonable cost.
