Had a fantastic meal here with my mum. King prawns were huge, slow roasted pork cheek in my opinion could of been cooked a little longer, but was still very tasty. The lamb was the best I've tasted and the hake was cooked to perfection, but would of preferred a little sauce. Lovely atmosphere, great staff, lovely food and will... More

We went to The Garrack Hotel for an evening meal and the food was at best mediocre, nothing particularly interesting and there was only a few choices on the menu. The size of the meals were very small and lacked enough sauce to make the meal moist. No extra sauce was offered and we weren't asked if everything was OK... More

Delicious omelets weekdays (weekend good, but not great), and great dinner (lamb shank was perfectly done, and excellently seasoned!).

Stayed here before but just visited restaurant recently. Good food as before and great position. However service not the best and somewhat erratic and abrupt in manner in one case. Not very welcoming or encouraging for a return visit! No one apparently 'in charge' overseeing The whole operation which is always important to ensure good service in a hotel. Flotsam... More

Ate here on a Sunday afternoon. Nice restaurant overlooking St. Ives. Had the Sunday roast, beef. Huge portion. Was very tasty. Pleasant service too. Left feeling very full. Couldnt manage a desert. Would not hesitate to recommend. Enjoyed a nice drink at the hotel pool bar afterwards too, with a great view.

Had a fantastic time here. We were staying at Ayr & visited the restaurant on many occasions over the 2 weeks. The food was delicious. The staff were also very friendly. The views from the conservatory are amazing. Sampled, dinner, lunch & breakfast & all were fantastic. Looking forward to many more meals there next year. Thank you.

My boyfriend and I went to the Garrack restaurant for breakfast when staying at Ayr Holiday park. We went up there simply to see if we could get our water bottel refilled - to which this particular guy was more than happy to do (including ice!!). We ended up staying for breakfast where we had the american pancake stack and... More

I have been to hotels where they make occasional change to the menu. This one seems to be set in stone, in addition, the portions are really small, and it is not exactly cheap!
