    Food was excellent. All four enjoyed our meal and dessert. Particularly mentioning our waiter who was attentive, had a wealth of knowledge on wine - helping us choose the right one, so much so we had two bottles! Will def return.

    Beautiful food and a lovely restaurant. Our only complaint was that we felt extremely rushed. Both starter and main courses were served too quickly, we had both with 30mins of sitting down.

    Food was very nice and well presented - not outstanding and maybe missing a light fish dish on the menu. Trio of fish came with heavy mashed potatoes and a buttery sauce. Although the pasta dish was very nice l would say that it is really overpriced for pasta with chicken, would possibly expect to pay that for a seafood pasta. Lovely wine and staff very friendly and professional.

    It is true what everyone says; the staff couldnt be more pleasant to deal with. Tempura x2, scallops all first class snd the most tender, perfectly cooked duck I have ever had (i want to know the secret). Tiny thing is there was nowhere to sit to wait for our table but they did bring out chairs for us to sit on and they could not have been nicer. Very impressed the default offer is a jug of tap water not some nonsense from a plastic bottle. Decent and interesting wine too.

    First time at Stravaig won’t be back! We arrived a little early and were told we could have a drink at the bar. Good luck with that! it was very busy with one guy on behind the bar and another two who seemed to be just in and out. Don’t advertise cocktails if you don’t have the staff, they take time. After waiting around 15 minutes and no drinks we were shown to our table of 4. No Chardonnay by the glass so had to order a bottle which was also slow coming. One of the party had Tempura Chicken, the batter was extremely hard and my sister’s chicken burger was tough as too well done. We know the Kylestrome of old but did not like the ambience of it this time one bit, felt like we were in a jungle with all the green plants, the bar is far too small and needs more organisation and staff. We are in the Hotel trade so we are familiar with the way things should run. We were given a discount on our bill but not told why. Our server was very good but no idea why things were so slow.

    Excellent quality food and wine. Highly recommend. Will need to come back soon for other delicious sounding options on the menu. Although we would both have last night’s choices again. (Pork cheek starter special and duo of salmon, duck and beef daube mains).

    Our second time here, food delicious, ambience excellent but the whole experience is enhanced by the calibre of your floor staff. Professional, polite, friendly & attentive without ever being intrusive. I'm sorry I didn't get the name of staff member who attended our table but she deserves praise for her 'can do' attitude....👏👏👏

    Had a great meal here tonight. Abbie and Ross made sure our night was incredible. We’re in town from Los Angeles. And this place has truly raised the bar on great dining in Ayr. We’re going to come back again before we leave. If you’re in town. You cannot beat this place for service, food and ambiance. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

    Great atmosphere, lovely menu. I had the fish of the day which was a very small portion. My only issue would be we only had the table for one and a half hours which wasn’t long enough. I felt I was constantly clock watching. The service is good but it’s obvious they want you in and out. I felt I had to ask if there was time for my husband to have desert. It is a beautiful place and I would recommend it but I will be making sure I have the table for longer the next time.

    Food was lovely, we were booked for 7pm and at 8.05pm we had finished our meal but were still drinking our bottle of wine. A waitress came and asked us to finish up as they needed the table for 8.15pm. We were going to have liqueurs but we we're not offered to take our drinks to the bar. On hindsight I feel we were quite rushed throughout the whole meal. On checking our booking we were meant to have our tabke until 8.30pm. We had waited a few weeks for a table but I don't think we will be rushing back.
