The Cristal Restaurant is a tired old lady now, and way past her prime. The dining room itself has all the atmosphere of a not recently dusted mortuary, although the food is not bad value for money. But -- like the rest of the hotel -- definitely not five star. The only choice for dinner was from a set meal... More

Had booked a dinner, bed, breakfast with my husband for my 30th. Had a family dinner in the Cristal restaurant that evening. The hotel is stunning. The service is perfect. I would have eaten everything in the menu but had to choose just one thing! The cheese soufflé was the best thing I have ever had. So delicious. The seafood... More

Ate here on a 5pm deal and enjoyed it. Both courses we had each were lovley. Enjoyed the wine and service was attentive with out being over powering. The only reason didnt give 5 stars was the lack of choice but i would still go back

I had taken my Aunt for a lovely 2 course Dinner - which both of us enjoyed. It was my Aunt's 80th Birthday and the chef had very kindly surprised us by preparing a very special dessert plate congratulating my Aunt on her 80th Birthday (a lovely and kind gesture to my Aunt). Which was beautifully written in chocolate and... More

Brilliant chunky beef burger and a red Hot Chili Concarne which needed a lot of extra sour cream plus a fire extinguisher ! The Chef should put a burn warning on it! Great place to walk your dog overlooking the Clyde. Lovely view

Visited for Sunday lunch and really enjoyed it. Great service in the Cristal restaurant and food. Marr Hall is a lovely but its always the small detail that lets it down. One toilet miles from the restaurant for example. However, on a positive note the food was very good. After lunch we had coffee in the Grand Hall which is... More

  • This restaurant is at Mar Hall Golf & Spa Resort
The Cristal, the stunning restaurant at Mar Hall Hotel, is both just outside Glasgow and also a million miles away. Mar Hall is a 19th-century Gothic mansion transformed into a very elegant 21st century retreat, a perfect combination of classical and modern luxury. The Cristal boasts soaring vaulted ceilings, gothic panelling, lovely views over the gardens and grounds, and smart styling at eye level. Award-winning chef Eric Avenier and Head Chef John Mcallum have created a mouth-watering seasonal menu with incorporates French cuisine. We source as much of our meat and vegetables from local Scottish Suppliers. Eager service, fine wines, relaxed ambience not to be missed!
