Our first outing after lockdown and well worth the wait. Food was amazing - we went for the 6 course tasting menu. Hard to decide what course was my favourite but it was a close call between the Beef Tartare and the Cod. Will definitely be back. Plenty of space between tables with screens etc so no issues for social distancing and cleanliness.

Amazing experience. Very impressed by the tasting menu both in terms of flavours and balance throughout. The ingredients were clearly handled with a lot of care and the ‘simplicity’ of the dishes were impressive not least given the great flavours We had our 7 year old son and they accommodated so nicely for him and he had a great experience. Service was of high standard but nicely relaxed and friendly Highly recommend Haar and can’t wait to go back and experience more of Dean’s amazing cooking

Fantastic food, great service and overall a lovely evening. Difficult to decide which of the 7 courses was our favourite - spoiled for choice. It was expensive but a terrific experience and would recommend to anyone looking for something a bit special ... the lobster with accompanying champagne was awesome

It was wonderful to be back in Haar. The staff made every effort to ensure our dining experience was special , even in these unusual times. The food was delicious and the lobster, which is an extra course on the taster menu, was amazing.

The food was delicious. We had eaten previously when the restaurant had a "Haar" version of Cullen Skink on the menu which my daughter (who is coeliac) very much enjoyed. This time around was just as enjoyable - knowing that she can eat in the safe knowledge that she would not have a gluten attack. Well done! P.S. We would suggest not presenting any dishes on a bed of barley seed - that was a bit disconcerting - albeit only for decoration purposes.

Absolutely first rate food, top class service, very well chosen Prestige Wines pairing, at relatively reasonable prices for the quality. Very good distancing measures in place (which is why the atmosphere only gets 4*). And chef Dean Banks was present and talked to us. Thank you for a memorable evening!

My wife and I had a fantastic 7 course taster menu lunch on Saturday 8th August 2020 at HAAR, not what we had originally planned, but temptation got in the way. This turned out to be a great decision and we have nothing but praise for the quality of the food and service. Both of us work within the wider food manufacturing industry, supplying both retail and hospitality customers, we understand how difficult things are at the moment and were impressed with the levels of social distancing and sanitisation stations that were in place. Even more excited for our Crowdfunding boxes later in the year now, best of luck with that venture, great example of adapting your business model in difficult times.

We loved our meal here and would highly recommend, particularly for seafood fans. Such delicious and skilled cooking treating the ingredients with the utmost respect and adding a very interesting Asian twist to classics. We will definetely come back despite it being quite a while away from where we live. The service was excellent and the staff were only too delighted to reseat us outside to benefit from the beautiful weather. We lingered over the meal for hours and the service was impeccable. Each savoury course was delicious and the additional courses are well worth trying, particularly the lobster. The sweet was not our favourite but we were left wanting more and can’t wait to come back to sample some new menu options.

We had a very pleasant lunch our food as delicious & staff were friendly & attentive. Covid 19 restrictions could be blamed for the subdued atmosphere. The bare tables could be better dressed to compliment the detail taken with the food presentation. Also felt some fixtures & fittings were needing a little attention

Fantastic tasting food. Staff very knowledgable and excellent service, being served by Dean himself was an added bonus. On our next visit to Scotland we will definitely go back. Keep doing what you do as it’s a great experience for your diners.

Had the tasting menu but added the lobster and scallop dishes. Felt charging £15.00 for one scallop and £25.00 for a half small lobster was a bit excessive

The one bad thing about the experience was the two hour time limit on the table (I booked online and the rules appeared extremely strict). This is not enough time to enjoy pre meal drinks, a tasting menu and coffee. It did not appear that this was an issue for the restaurant but if we had been rushed during our meal it would have been awful. This time limit almost put me off booking but thankfully it was not enforced or even mentioned. We both thought the food was terrific, and the service was great too.

First class food one of the best meals we have ever had only a matter of time before he is awarded a Michelin star. Service was excellent very friendly staff who were very attentive. Would definitely recommend and can't wait to visit again.

We had the 5 course tasting menu which was excellent and its Asian tastes appealed to our palates. The service was attentive but not uncomfortable as some such high class establishments can be and we would definitely recommend Haar for a special occasion. Personally I think the addition of a cheaper selection of wines would be appreciated for a non connoisseur.
