Had 2 family meals in the Brasserie. Everything was first class. Staff were friendly, service outstanding. Restaurant is welcoming and relaxed with a great ambience. Food was delicious and beautifully presented. A great experience!

We thoroughly enjoyed our meal; I had Salmon and my husband had Rump Steak. Both cooked perfectly. The dining room was pleasantly busy. I would definitely return.

The food is good quality and the cooking pretty good. The prices are high compared to other places in Ballater, and the atmosphere is slightly noisy, due to the accoustics.

Despite an extensive menu showing on the Resort Info section of the interactive facility within the lodge, we were shown an extremely limited (5 main courses) version at the table. On querying this, we were told that that had been the menu situation for quite some time. I knew this not to be the case as my parents had been here using their timeshare 3 weeks previous, when the extensive menu had still been available. Regardless, all 4 of our party chose from the menu - 2 choosing the popseye steak and 2 choosing the chicken & bacon (expecting it to be a chicken breast wrapped in bacon with some sort of gravy/sauce). The steaks were completely different - one was very fatty and inedible and one was good. The chicken came out as a very dry grilled and sliced chicken breast with 3 rashers of extremely salty and very dry/crispy bacon alongside. There was no gravy/sauce and I could only eat a small piece of the chicken as it was so dry. We will not be visiting this restaurant again if this situation continues, and will instead use some of the excellent and varied restaurant choices within the village.

This Keiller would have us believe it is a fine dining establishment however the menu choices are very limited , pretentious and rather expensive. The wine prices seem to be on the high side The meal we had was acceptable but not memorable. A great shame as before the Hilton acquisition it was a pleasure to eat there.

We have dined here twice during our stay at Craigendarroch. On both occasions the food was excellent, beautifully cooked and presented. Wine prices were very reasonable, and the waiting staff were really impressive. Highly recommended.

We were kept waiting for service. Seating arrangements were poor we felt like we were sharing a table with the two people next to us as only separated by small partition and they were very loud talkers so we had no privacy. Soup was served cold.
