We recently had a meal here at Fonab Castle en route to the Enchanted Forest at Loch Faskally. The Castle looks brilliant and the view from the Fonab Brasserie is superb and it was good watching the sun set. There is a really good menu and an extensive selection to choose from. I opted for the north Atlantic prawn cocktail which was very tasty, then the Fonab Burger, which was filling, it was not greasy as I see from an earlier review. The chips nice and chunky and burger good and meaty. My only comment here is that I prefer to eat my meal off a plate and not a wooden board as provided. But that is only a personal view I think the trend for serving meals on bits of wood or slate is a bit OTT. I finished my meal with ice cream and jelly and wow was it good, so many nice flavours and textures. The staff were extremely helpful and attentive, but not to the point that you felt they were hovering too close. Yes we will be back.
Thanks Mike and Stu.
