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.

Lovely friendly staff, great meal.
Meal was delicious service outstanding
Unobtrusive Background music in Restaurant would have been beneficial to the overall ambience.
Lovely meal at Mar Hall. Staff extremely attentive and knowledgeable. Perfect romantic night away.
The service was above and beyond what we expected. All of the staff we encountered were exceptional in terms of courtesy, friendliness and helpfulness. Often service can seem forced or stuffy but here it was genuine and we really appreciated that.
We had a brilliant night out.. just think the wine is overpriced
Had a lovely time in the restaurant, meal testing for my wedding. Staff were very nice and a very calming atmosphere. Its made me even more exited for my wedding next year. Look forward to been back at mar hall. Many thanks Nadine & Callum
Excellent venue, staff & food . Really enjoyed our Sunday lunch. Your staff were very helpful as I was asking about the history of Mar Hall. I was given a leaflet about this. We used to live local to the hotel and our children saved 20p to support the ex servicemen. I was also given information about a book which I will purchase telling me a bit more of the history. Many thanks to lovely staff concerned.
Service lacking a little - long waits for drinks order/menus to be brought etc. There was a large party in, which occupied 2 tables, and it was clear they were the priority.
Food was good the dessert was the best of the 3 courses
We had a lovely position in the restaurant and it was just a pity it was a quiet day for customers, as the atmosphere could gave been livelier (which isn't any fault of the staff or restaurant). Food was delicious (my only comment would be that the fish portion was a tad small) - everyone thoroughly enjoyed each course (the mushroom risotto getting 5*) Kind regards Carole.
Excellent 3-course meal. Great value for money.
After a disappointing dinner last week it was back to normal service for this meal of Sunday lunch. What a treat we had as we normally do!! Excellent food, wine, and the staff were an absolute credit to the Crystal Restaurant. The young gentleman assistant manager on the day was a pleasure to speak to. He was smartly dressed well polished and a credit to the hotel. We shall certainly be back again.
It was fantastic and very much looking forward to our wedding meal. Lovely staff.
Lovely food & service in restaurant impeccable but in piano bar on the Friday night it was difficult to get served drinks ...had to go to the bar...where 6 bar staff were on and the bar was not very busy.
We had a delicious Anniversary dinner, waiting staff were very attentive also. Would highly recommend for a special occasion, thank you x
