I have been to Macnean a couple of times, my most recent visit in
November and I have to say, I am never disappointed. The staff are
warm, friendly and very attentive. The food, described in detail by
the server is always delicious. I personally like to know what is on
the plate, so this just adds to the build up at each course. The wine
list is extensive and its lovely to be able to discuss the options
with someone who knows about wine.

From the greeting on arrival to the goodbye at departure, every aspect
of the experience is lovely. The friendliness of the staff makes you
feel like you are among friends and that nothing is too much trouble.
I am already looking forward to my next visit!

We dined and stayed in macnean house on 30th November and all I can say is that it was a wonderful experience from start to finish. Food was amazing, staff so friendly and accommodation lovely and of course the man himself, nevin was there and had time for everyone. I can't wait to do it all over again someday.

My mum and I had a wonderful stay here in November. Food beautiful, our Room beautiful, staff amazing - the 'one flaw' however was a gentleman who was extremely friendly and welcoming to us during our dinner; asked us lots of details about where we had travelled from etc. but started to ask the same questions again as we left the next morning. I was disappointed that he didn't care to remember our conversation 12 hours earlier. Otherwise I cannot complain as it is a most wonderful experience overall, and well worth the couple of months wait for a reservation.

We have dined in Neven's several times over the years and have stayed there too. It had always been a very eagerly awaited treat for us but, oh dear, how times have changed! It's now a machine, get you in, get you out and find your own coat when you are finished, the friendly charm and care is gone. While everything we ate was lovely it was like sampling a few mouthfuls, We didn't feel like we had actually eaten a meal. The minute explanation of each dish was tiresome, really if it's that complicated just leave the menu on the table. We too were rushed out to the bar after the meal. Just not special anymore and at that price it should be. We will have to find somewhere else for those special occasions. We won't be back.

We make an annual visit to MacNean house - and every time until this visit was a special experience. This was the first time that we were actually able to get accommodation - and really won't be bothering again. The ''luxury accommodation'' was very disappointing -the room was very small for the price being charged and there were marks on the sheets. There was some shampoo provided but no shower gel. We can never fault the food - it was excellent.We always praised the service but on this occasion there was definitely something lacking - we definitely felt that one or two of the staff didn't really want to be there and couldn't raise a smile. We definitely felt rushed and were sent back to the bar area for our coffee - there was very little room in the bar area as the second seating diners were waiting and we felt we were foisted onto a couple to share their table - not really good enough. After 7 years of annual visits we won't be back for a long time - sorry but standards seem to be slipping. The night in MacNean house cost us the price of a decent weekend away. We have always recommended MacNean house for a special treat - but for what you pay you should expect more - shame

This was our third visit to this absolutely worth the wait restaurant ..we dined and stayed over last night..I'm really surprised by some negative ratings .We have gone once a year for the past 3 years and each time the excitement has been the same,we really look forward to the whole experience of feeling spoilt for the night,not only by the outstanding food but also by the staff who really can't be faulted,actually a lot of restaurants and hotels should take note on how genuine and helpful the staff are in helping you enjoy this fabulous experience ,from your welcome to your hope to see you again goodbye ,the staff are a credit to this restaurant .The food without a doubt is WOW factor ,the taste ,the presentation ,everything is perfect .Its lovely to watch other diners faces when these master pieces are put in front of them.We actually enjoy having our coffee out in the relaxing bar area,you can sit back and relax before retiring to the beautiful bedrooms.We went to bed looking forward to the breakfast !!!!!!!..which never disappoints ,it was delicious .We left smiling at yet another perfect night in MacNean house.Roll on next year.

We dined with two other couples on Sunday 28th October after waiting six months for our table. We were unable to stay, as the rooms were already booked out!! after all the hype, and PR, I was sceptical that it would live up to its incredible reputation - it did. All six of us had an amazing experience. The staff were so welcoming and answered all our queries about different aspects of the menu with clear knowledge of their product and with great patience. The dining room is very well appointed and comfortable and each course and mini course was sublime. Hats off to all the staff in McNeans (Nevan was absent on our visit-it was still perfect). I loved the attention to detail - some of the china adding to the overall presentation of a particular dish etc. we all agreed we would love to return next year. This team is passionate about what they do and it shows.
