Superb dishes of food (Celery and Apple soup, Fish of the Day,and vegetarian Risotto). This was out of this world food = simple, beautifully cooked, lovely outlook into gorgeous spring gardens. It is a long time since I have had such a great meal.

We had a birthday lunch for 10 'seniors' at Glenfalloch Restaurant - and what an enjoyable experience it was! Walked through the spring colours in the magnificent gardens from the car park into a light, bright dining room with large windows to let in the sun and give expansive views of the gardens. The three course platter meal was well... More

We didn't know what to expect but were surprised in every way. The garden setting is beautiful, the service was friendly, genuine and enthusiastic. Most importantly, the food was gorgeous. Had a main meal in the middle of the day.

After a glass of bubbly, I enjoyed a pork belly main that was surely the best I ever tasted, lean and cooked to perfection. on a very minor point the crackling could have been slightly saltier with more colour. For desert I had the Cheesecake which was just an "explosion" of wonderful flavours and textures. The wine selection was fairly... More

Great food, staff and of course the environment is just lovely. I've been a few times now usually as a group and have always had great service and lovely food. After lunch if you can still move a wee walk in the garden finishes of the experience beautifully.
