Had supper here and like all of Gleneagles it is overpriced and everything seems to be designed to hike your bill. Food was nicely presented and enjoyable but then spoilt when a large tomato salad consists of a large tomato sliced and a couple of cherry tomatoes with a few pea shoots decoration and a bit of avocado is definitely not worth the money. Loads of attentive staff and lots of chefs but you pay for them.... Enjoy it but watch your bill.

My husband and I visited this restaurant during our stay at the hotel last month. The restaurant is relaxed, (jeans for dinner, absolutely fine) colourful with a Mediterranean feel. It is exceptionally family friendly, we have also visited with our two year old and they couldn't be more helpful with crayons etc. during this dining experience we were child-free so could take our time! Before we were seated, the waiter showed us around the restaurant , which includes seafood and meat 'counters'' displaying the very fresh food to be served that evening. The meat that is served is sourced from local butcher Simon Howie and the steak is delicious! There is also a chef's table which comprises an open kitchen with seating around it. This has to be pre booked but would make a great birthday present or family get-together as you have your own private chef! The meal we had was beautifully presented and was delicious. There is a very good selection of meat and seafood on the menu as well as pasta and pizza. Would definitely recommend this restaurant if you are looking for a relaxed dinner, with great, local produce, helpful staff and delicious wine .

We spent a lot of time at this restaurant over the Christmas period mainly because it was very children friendly. The food and service was fantastic. Not really too pricey. When we return we will definitely be eating here again.

My friend and I ordered soup but only one bowl arrived, I had to wait a few minutes for my bowl to arrive. It all seemed a bit hectic and busy so not sure if the restaurant was under-staffed or it was extra-busy that day. I did not like the coffee tables to eat from, needed to sit with the soup bowl on my lap. All in all not the deadent light lunch I had hoped for.
