Description: WelcomeWhether you've something to celebrate, are at the end of a hard day's walking in the hills, or simply fancy a break from cooking at home, it is our wish at Anderson's that you all feel welcome. Forget pretence, the atmosphere here is relaxed and informal, so sit back, switch off, and savour the pleasure of great food and drink. Local Produce At Anderson's we are committed to using local Scottish produce when it is in season, so needless to say, our menu changes each month, along with our daily specials. Each dish is lovingly prepared and bought together in such a way as to bring out the very best of truly great, fresh ingredients. Although our menu is creative, our aim is simple, to present you with food that we are confident you will enjoy, and that tastes fantastic.Family Friendly The whole family is welcome at Anderson's, and it is important to us that everyone can tuck into something they will enjoy. So for children we can either offer half portions of anything on the menu, or for specific likes or dislikes, please feel comfortable to say, and the chef will be happy to come up with something to suit- within reason! Similarly please make us aware of any special dietary requirements you may have.“It’s great to see a restaurant like Andersons opening up in Boat of Garten. Owners Steve and Claire have put a huge amount of thought and effort into their set up, and their intended philosophy of utilizing the best of Scottish produce should be a real boost to the local restaurant scene. I wish them every success for the future.” Nick Nairn

drove along some snowy roads to find the place, but well worth it.Some good service from a young team and a really excellent main course of guinea fowl stuffed with black pudding in an amazing sauce with (I think) pink peppercorns. A good pudding of treacle tart as well...... It was nicely busy on a Thursday night so I imagine... More

This was our third visit to Anderson's over recent years and it was as good as ever! There is always a lovely relaxed atmosphere along with the anticipation of great food. The starters of the haggis spring rolls and smoked salmon were delicious and my risotto was wonderful! I was intrigued by the prospect of baked potato ice cream and... More

This restaurant is a little Gem, if you are visiting the Cairngorms this place is a must. Not far from Aviemore, and better than any of the restaurants there! They serve the best gravy I have ever tasted. Extremely helpful with gluten free (always lots to choose from), and go out of their way to make sure everything is perfect.... More

My family and I have been spending our holidays in the highlands for over 29 years and only came across this restaurant last summer and we all wish we'd gone there much sooner! It's a small restaurant that really lacks a punch. The service is great and the staff are always very cheerful and the food is delicious. The burgers... More

Yet another fantastic meal we all had a fabulous time but just sorry we had to take a rain check on our sweets as we were running a wee bit late (our fault)

Very very impressed! After a failed attempt at dinner down the road we arrived here before opening and were welcomed warmly. Everything was just lovely - the service, the atmosphere, wine options, food and just the general feel. Highlights were the prawn starter special, haggis and chicken pate, fish and chips and the cod. We were so full so couldn't... More

We went as a couple and had a table in the corner but the atmosphere and service were excellent. The food is good quality and interesting. The homemade ice cream something to save a space for.

Visited here on 2/11/14 and had a great meal- have tried to make it here for a year so hoped we would not be disappointed! Food was lovely and not pretentious.The homemade chicken and haggis pâté was really tasty (need an extra oatcake though).Steaks were succulent and as ordered but for us we LOVED the whisky and smoked haggis sauce....
