Food was delicious and the service was excellent, attentive without being intrusive. The dining room was very Grand and elegant but the staff and service was not stuffy.

Relaxed, formal atmosphere in cozy surroundings. I felt that it wasn't outstanding, but the food was nice and well presented. A few hiccups e.g. asked for an item and did not receive, did not have the wine we wanted (however the staff catered to this).

Unfortunately the restaurant visit was disappointing. The food is not worth returning for, service was average and lacked atmosphere.

The Cristal, the stunning restaurant at Mar Hall Hotel, is both just outside Glasgow and also a million miles away. Mar Hall is a 19th-century Gothic mansion transformed into a very elegant 21st century retreat, a perfect combination of classical and modern luxury. The Cristal boasts soaring vaulted ceilings, gothic panelling, lovely views over the gardens and grounds, and smart styling at eye level. Award-winning chef Eric Avenier and Head Chef John Mcallum have created a mouth-watering seasonal menu with incorporates French cuisine. We source as much of our meat and vegetables from local Scottish Suppliers. Eager service, fine wines, relaxed ambience not to be missed!
