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.

Like walking back in time to the classic rooms of The Ritz or Dorchester, huge room but beautifully presented, lots of staff with individual skills.Nice pace to the service.

“Great food - service slightly OTT”
Reviewed December 13, 2013 via mobile

Had a meal here as we were staying at Gleneagles. The quality of the food is outstanding, and the (base) cost of the fixed price 3- and 4- course meals is reasonable. However, many choices have an extra cost (supplement) to them, and drink is likely to add a significant amount to the bill. Helpings are massive - I don't think that I could have managed 4 courses, and we had to leave over half of our dessert course (a deep and wonderful tarte tatin). Better to leave full than hungry, I suppose. One issue - although the service is good, we were asked far too many times whether the food was to our liking - including at one point before either of us had taken a mouthful.

This is now a tradition to have Sunday lunch in the Strathearn at the beginning of our week at Glenmor.The anticipation is always fulfilled with the food and service just the same-excellent.Next year is already much looked forward to.

“Welcome return to the Stratearn.”
Reviewed November 15, 2013

This really is old style fine dining with silver service as used to be commonplace. When dining in the Strathearn you will not be disappointed. The service is 1st class ,as is the food. I can only say decisions are difficult with so many culinary works of art on display. I eventually opted for the Hebridean crab & my husband the King local hand dived scallops. Both were devine ;so good I could have repeated for my course. Hubby chose the ''roast sirloin '' of the day ,hand carved at our table & cannon of lamb with faggott -amazing although on this occasion I made the best choice. The lamb was so sweet & almost melted in the mouth.
If white chocolate appears on a menu, then that will always be my choice & their parfait with pineapple salsa made a wonderful ending to a faultless meal ,with hubby opting for cheeses & chutneys. The evening was fabulous & this place is special & one to savour on a very special occasion. The bill is hefty but worth every penny. We accompanied our meal with a well chilled Argentinian Sauvignon Blanc. The restaurant carries an extensive cellar with prices from the average to the unbelievable.
