The food was very fresh, beautifully presented and delicious. Although the setting is very grand the service and atmosphere make this an excellent choice for dinner.

  • This restaurant is at Mar Hall Golf & Spa Resort
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!
