Perfect! No downside at all from the table setting, menu design, taste, plate layout, variety and service. We took an hour slow walk in the garden between the main course and desert during dinner which was delightful. And we thoroughly enjoyed the delicious desert. It was a big meal so we were very happy about the mini break. It has a great wine selection as well.

We had our lunch here today which we consider for good value considering overall experience. After 3 courses for 38 pounds we didnt even needed dinner. The hotel is lovely, staff was friendly. Great plus is that you get automatically free water served with your lunch. The lunch also includes coffee and petit four.

For starter I had scallops which were bit blant and my husband had crab wrapped in tuna with avocado which was delicious. Our mains were duck with goose liver and lamb. Both was nice without being great. I think the produce is not the best. I would have expected the meat to be more tender and have more flavour. The last course made up for it. My banana souffle was just perfect and light as feather. My husband had the cheese platter which included selection of bisquits, chutney, red and white grapes, celery sticks (peeled!) and plate of eight (8!) different cheeses. It would have been fine course for two people.

Overall lovely experience. Not sure why the Michelin star though:-)

The menu features international cuisine with an emphasis on fresh, seasonal Scottish produce. The food can be on the heavy side, but one may request a salad. The service, staff, ambience, view, wine list and experience are first rate.

The food was pretty average to be honest for a michelin star restaurant.

The dish was pretty imbalanced due to the lack of potatoes and the dried up carrot garnish wasn't exactly appealing.

The presence of the cheese trolley behind and the aromas it gave off was also extremely distracting when trying to enjoy a "nice" dinner.

In general, the dishes lacked substance and an exotic variety of flavours, in which a michelin star restaurant should have. We basically paid triple the price for something we could've had in a normal restaurant.

Very pretty palace, lovely surroundings, luxurious regal premises, romantic surroundings, breathtaking landscape, a special experience. Really nice cuisine, desserts could be better though. Staff on the whole polite but a bit rushed to check us out although place was empty hardly any clients. Chef was kind enough to go out of his way to cook for us on a Sunday a special menu of fish which was appreciated.
