I have eaten here many times and still think it's a great idea to have international starters. Loads of different small portions of delicious food, how could you go wrong. Nice wine selection too.

We have been to International Starters in Edinburgh many a time in the past and have always enjoyed it however we were both a bit disappointed with our experience here. Both our meals were edible if a little on the bland side/not much flavour. It was very quiet, only us to begin with then one other larger party came in... More

Nachos and ribs and a mezze then chilli bowl from the Special Menu. All extremely tasty and served with a smile!. The young member in our party ordered... More

14 of us had lunch in International Starters, Aviemore on Friday 24 October 2014. Staff were excellent, and the food was fabulous - all 14 of us thoroughly enjoyed our meal. The house wine was well priced as was the food. A most enjoyable afternoon. Would certainly recommend this restaurant.

We have eaten at IS in Edinburgh previously but this was our first visit to the Aviemore one. Not the same ambiance as Edinburgh, but apart from that no complaints.

My family and I visited the restaurant on Saturday to celebrate a couple of special birthdays. We opted for a selection of starters each which we shared between the group and was really impressed. The presentation was fantastic and the food itself was delicious. We had a really nice evening and thoroughly enjoyed the meal. Would highly recommend a visit... More

We booked a meal at IS and had difficulty getting a table, we were advised there was only bar lounge tables left. We couldn't tell the difference as the lounge was better than many dining rooms. Starter were great, as was the main meals, however spoilt a little by the sheer mass of chips on each plate. We though this... More

Stopped on the way back from Aberdeen. This was a first and although disappointed at first I never left disappointed. It is nice clean and fresh with a very nice modern ambiance.. When we walked in there was a lovely young waitress to greet and seat us. A first look of the menu I was left wondering. Limited selection from... More

Went here with family and ordered a few starters from the international menu - all were really good. Portions much larger than "tapas" and good quality
