  • O my! Really good food. Everything is super well made, the ice chocolate drink was superb, even had ice cream balls in it, the combination was done beautifully. The beef cheeks were extremely tender, which means the chef is showing off a little bit. Beef cheeks are normally very had to do right. Platter was really high quality. Atmosphere is warm and friendly. Pricing is just right for the type off food, but of course a more up market restaurant.
  • Amazing food, a visual and taste sensation. Such a wonderful team here at Glenfalloch Restaurant. (The above review was from February when Haan & Mel were owners. I have yet to return to Glenfalloch under the current new management so my review is somewhat dated now.) Hope to visit in the New Year and check out the new team.
