    Very limited vegetarian choices. Food and service average. Coffee was good. Felt like we were there ‘out of season’.

    This was our first time eating at Karma, Lake of and we will absolutely be back. Our table was booked at 8pm on a Friday evening in March. We got there about 15 mins early and were seated right away, as the restaurant was fairly quiet (my guess is that it was mostly guests staying at the hotel rather than people going out for a night of food). We were given the option of seating in the restaurant or in the bar for dinner, and opted for the restaurant as it overlooks the lake (admittedly, it was almost 8pm in winter, so it was too dark to enjoy the view on this occasion). The staff were really welcoming and friendly - even helped me out when I couldn’t remember the name of the band they were playing over the sound system!! Unfortunately, when ordering our food my partner opted for two items on the menu that the kitchen had run out of (pork belly starter and mac and cheese side). However, the food that we did get was ridiculously good. I opted for the haggis beignets starter which had a nice crispy coating and was light and fluffy in the middle, with a thick and creamy dipping sauce - beautiful! I also went for the curry of the day, which was a chicken madras - the chicken was plentiful and tender, and the sauce was rich and hot! With a good portion of rice and an individual naan, it was divine! My partner opted for the steak, which he said was cooked perfectly (medium rare), which came with a large portion of proper crispy fries (obviously I tried some, cause the looked so good!). For dessert, we both opted for the raspberry and white chocolate cookie dough and it was incredible! Piping hot and gooey in the middle, with a proper crispy crunch on top and a good dollop of vanilla ice cream to balance it out. Would 100% recommend the food here. We’ve already booked to go back in summer, when we can hopefully get the most out of the view! (Thanks to the barmaid for your help! And sorry to the manager for your 9:30 call!)

    A beautiful spot for a light lunch. Scallops (from Orkney apparently) were full of flavour, even without the chilli oil (by our request). Friendly service and lovely warm welcome. Recommended.

    Visit for dinner - great little place - very cosy. Brought dog so dined in the bar area but it’s the same menu and attentive service meant no difference. Nice food - varied menu - chef clearly has a good palate and sone imagination with a korean inspired option or 2 and good vegetarian couple of options. Great spot, excellent food, great service and would love to come back during daytime to add the no doubt stunning lake views to the experience.

    After hanging around in restaurant for 10 mins waiting on someone to come and look after us,we were finally seated only one person on duty so seemed like slow service,food eventually came and was worth the wait couldn’t fault what was put in front of us,asking if we would have liked another drink with our meal would have been good as this was booked as a birthday celebration so slightly disappointed,view over the lake was splendid and it was nice to see the boats on the water,would I return unsure as left a bit saddened as it was ment to be a special occasion

    The bar area was cold, we were squashed up at one end of the room and very, very close to the table beside us. We had to ask for salt and pepper and also for cutlery, the roast potatoes and Yorkshire pudding had a strange taste. The staff were slow to clear dirty dishes from the table. Overall we were disappointed.
