I had a scotch egg wrapped in black pudding.... it was drowning in far too much odd tasting sauce, with absolutely no seasoning, the sauce was like custard thick too, then I had pan fried cod that was dry as a bone with no seasoning and the tatties and veg were boiled to mush .... It really was a terrible meal, the sauce with the cod was also thick like custard and tasteless. I have been here many times before, so this was disappointing.

All the staff were amazing, from the waiters to the manager who received our payment at the end. Very friendly and even nice banter buy not at the cost of excellent service. In many restaurants, sadly, both in the UK and abroad, I have grown accustomed to the tiresome practice of waiters asking you how you like your steak and although you say, "Well done," they undercook it. Not here in the Craighaar. I was highly delighted with my well-done steak and my wife enjoyed her vegetarian lasagne. The Chianti was superb too. Highly recommended. We'll be back!

Although the food and service, was up to a good standard as normal apart from the wait to be shown to my reserved table as no one was taking any attention, I was very disappointing that what I was told and supposed to be a light main course (Seafood pot) I had as a starter and it was what I would call a sampler dish, I am glad I did not have this for the main course.

Food was excellent, cooked to perfection. Service was very good not rushed, gave you time to relax between courses. It was my wife's birthday and the staff sang happy birthday with the delivery of the dessert. Free bottle of wine with a voucher, good for an Aberdeen lad.

We all had the roast sirloin of beef which was rather over cooked for (all) our taste - bit chewy. Other than that, excellent.

Food was great as usual, there was not a lot of people dining at lunchtime for a Friday which was surprising, I intend to try it on a weekend evening to see if the atmosphere is any different, but certainly cannot fault the food or service.

Thanks for a lovely afternoon tea on Saturday. The atmosphere was relaxed and welcoming and the staff were all very attentive. Nothing was too much trouble. The afternoon tea was delicious and well presented, good value for money too. We would definitely recommend afternoon tea at the Craighaar

Can never fault the food when we have eaten there, as it was a lunch time the restaurant had very few people in it although the car park was full, a place to visit if you get the chance
