“bit of a throwback”
Reviewed 16 May 2014

Food in the Highlands has improved a lot in the 40 years I've been visiting but this restaurant is a bit of a throwback. The setting is beautiful, the dining room bright and airy, and the service friendly if a little casual, but the problem is the food. It attempts a modern bistro menu (goats cheese, venison burgers etc) but doesn't have the skill to pull it off. It comes across as over-fried, greasy and with unimaginative accompaniments. Either it should stick to a menu it can deliver (at a lower price range) or upskill the kitchen side to do the menu better.

“Thanks so much!”
Reviewed 11 May 2014

My mum and I had a lovely lunch at the Capercaillie today, the soup was lovely, warming and delicious, just what we needed after our walk into Killin. The staff were very friendly and many thanks to the kind gentleman on the staff, who gave my mum(79) and I a lift back to our car when we realised the walk back was going to be a bit too much! Wonderful service and I will definitely be back.

“Lovely inside and out.”
Reviewed 10 May 2014 via mobile

Stop here in way home for a late tea. Food was lovely & cooked to perfection. Staff very nice and friendly. However the bang bang of the background music was more suitable to a under 25's disco than to a restaurant? Thankfully it wasn't any louder than it was or it would have been awful. My dads food was served on a cold plate! So that was disappointing but the waitress did take his comment about hot food on a cold plate & spoke to the kitchen. All in all a nice surprise and a lovely meal at the end of a great day out. Would try the banoffee dessert next time although price was rather steep?

“Worth a visit”
Reviewed 3 May 2014

Dropped in here for breakfast with some hillwalking buddies. Staff coped well with the unexpected 10 of us appearing at once. Good breakfast rolls provided quickly and free refills of coffee offered. Good wee place, would definately go back.
