About Cristal Restaurant

Cristal, the stunning restaurant of hot hotel Mar Hall, is both just outside Glasgow and also a million miles away. Mar Hall is a 19th-century Gothic mansion transformed into a very 21st century retreat, a perfect combination of classical elegance and modern luxury. Cristal boasts soaring vaulted ceilings, gothic paneling, lovely views over the gardens and grounds, and smart styling at eye level. Award-winning chef Jim Kerr has come from One Devonshire to thrill diners here with his classic dishes inflected with Scottish and Eastern accents. Dishes include starter of mussel and cornish crab stew, main course of panfried duck breast and confit leg with puy lentils and foie gras jus, and dessert of prune and walnut parfait with toffee sauce. Eager service, fine wines, relaxed ambience.

We had a great dining experience, from the moment we entered Mar Hall. At first I thought the staff looked very young, but I think thats me just getting older, and Zak who served us was amazing. Very knowledgeable answered ALL our questions. Food amazing, we were driving, so drinks did not come into it, and we certainly didn't need them to enjoy our visit. If I was to find a negative, the one toilet. Visit 5 stars, 4 & a half if you needed to use the loo.

We both enjoyed our Sunday lunch at Mar Hall. Two excellent courses, both well prepared and served by most pleasant staff. We both had the roast beef which was one of the best we have tasted recently. I had the pate for a starter whilst my wife opted for her favourite sweet, sticky toffee pudding, and it did not fail to impress.

The food was superb+++. The staff and service were excellent. I would have loved the view enjoyed by bar users, while dining. From our table there was no view so like sitting in a big hall. Having said that The food was so great I wouldn’t hesitate to return.

Enjoyed our meal which was an Itison Sunday lunch. Disappointed that is just a cup of tea and coffee. We have been before and always had a pot of tea. No little biscuit. Just felt that was all a bit mean. There was a wedding so had to sit in busy bar. Obviously not your fault Definately would think twice before re booking as not relaxing enough after a busy week....and I love my tea!!!

Lovely Sunday Lunch! The food was first class and the service was excellent, this was a present from our daughter and it was really fantastic, walking in with the wedding group was an added bonus, we were offered champagne on arrival and thought wow this is posh😂🥂 thanks for a lovely afternoon.

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Mar Hall for lunch on Sunday 6 October. The food was excellent, the atmosphere perfect and the staff were incredibly professional whilst at the same time very friendly and welcoming. Certainly would recommend Mar Hall to our friends.

First time I have been to Mar Hall and I have to say it everything was first class. From the welcoming greeting we received from the maitre d to the excellent service we received from our waiter Logan and his colleagues. The dining room was stunning and the quality of the food was absolutely perfect. I will happily return and would definitely recommend Mar Hall to friends and family. Well done Tim Doherty
