The food is fresh and lovely, but is very overpriced. The atmosphere is very subdued and a bit staid, not a place for party people. Although the food is to the standard I like, I do prefer to eat somewhere that is a bit less...More

Beautiful architecture, pleasant room. Staff willing, not quite five star service but satisfactory. Menu, no a lacarte but reasonable menu choices. Not high dining but 'posh scottish' and well presented and tasty. Why the use of slates for pud? Wine prices, a range, but starting...More

  • 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!
