    A comfortable setting with excellent food and service. The crispy haggis starter was delicious and the food presentation artistic. Would recommend for either casual dining event or special occasion. The sea bass main was proportioned well. The decor is festive and prices fair.

    Un super moment et vraiment délicieux. Pour visiter le château de balmoral, réservez dans ce restaurant. Nourriture excellente, fraîcheur, super accueil ! Que du bonheur dans une décoration écossaise. À refaire !

    Good was wonderful, only comment is that service was prompt, almost slightly too much so, which meant it felt a little rushed. Only a minor thing though, which didn't stop us from enjoying a lovely evening.
