We were too slow to secure a table in the main hotel at the Strathearn on a Friday evening. Worth making sure the you have reserved a table even a few weeks in advance! If not, then its Deseo and you might be disappointed. It is situated by the spa and although it has had a makeover, it still has... More

We had eaten at Deseo before: earlier this year - in February. And had enjoyed it, so we looked forward to eating there again. We were three people, plus a guide dog in training. For starters we ordered: - gambas al pili pili – was good - seafood bisque – was ordinary - ricotta, pine nuts – was a bit... More

We had dinner in Deseo last night. Firstly, the food was very nice and our waitress was friendly enough. The only reason I have not rated it more highly is that, in comparison to the rest of the hotel, the service was not so good. They were not busy, yet it seemed a little chaotic and was more akin to... More

I ate here three times and felt that the service was not as good as one would expect from a 5 star hotel. After finishing my starter I was shocked when asked if I wanted clean cutlery and a clean plate. Although there was a meat menu and the option to go and choose your own steak this was never... More

I have eaten in Deseo many times. They have recently simplified both the menu and the wine list. You can have a pizza or pasta or choose from the extensive fresh meats, sea food and fish. If it is not on the menu they can probably make it for you. When the kids were small, we sat at the front... More

We stayed three nights and ate in two of the restaurants. In Deseo we ordered sea bass and linguine with prawns. The sea bass was so overcooked it was dry and inedible, not one mouthful was eaten. After much difficulty - two waiters did not understand what we were saying - we sent it back to the kitchen - after... More

Stayed at the hotel for a weekend in early October and it was just fabulous. For us, one of the highlights was our delicious meals at Deseo- so good we went back twice. The first night we both had steak which was undoubtedly the best we've ever had. The second day we went for pizza which was equally delicious. There... More
