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.

Nice food, nice restaurant. Only negative was having to brush crumbs off my chair before sitting on it - disappointing in an establishment of this calibre. More attention to detail required.

Food and service generally quite good but some small things missing that make the difference. First was after main course served no-one asked if all ok and never seemed to come near the table - would have liked horseradish with the beef. Second thing was coffee with milk - we were given cold milk [no offer of hot milk like our local cafe does] - as a result the coffee was lukewarm.

Good food, the double cheese fondue especially rich and tasty. The chocolate pave with raspberry ripple ice cream was a triumph.

Service was attentive and friendly but not obtrusive. We had market menu for dinner which had plenty of choice for us . The food was delicious (loved the ham hough starter especially ) and nicely presented. Water and wine topped up when observed to be required . Lovely dining area with comfy seats and tables reasonably well spaced . Break fast -good quality and variety of tasty fresh food continental , hot buffet or cooked to order as wished . Excellent service from all staff . Tea pot didn’t leak which is always an extra star from me 😎

One of the nicest restaurants I have been to for lovely food and friendly staff. Would like a table cloth or a runner to compliment the experience. We enjoyed a lovely bottle of red wine too.

We found the restaurant and bar lounge area very cold. Granted it was a particularly cold evening but we were cold. I expected more Christmas decorations they were a bit sparse it would make it more festive. Very minor points the service and the food were outstanding we had a very agreeable evening.
