“GREAT RESTAURANT”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2012

Chose this restaurant for our last night's holiday in Aviemore. It was excellent. The food was terrific and the staff couldn't have been more helpful and friendly. Can thoroughly recommend it.

“Smashing++++!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2012 via mobile

Parked easily and were well received despite not having booked. Staff were just lovely, extremely accommodating and pleasant. We were expecting a fairly standard set of starters but were pleasantly surprised to find a selection of dishes along the lines of a tasting menu, where you order perhaps 3 dishes each (priced approx £5-£8 each) and can share them or not as you please. We were there as a family of 5 including 3 kids who ate free from a very respectable children's menu, this applies if adults eat from the a la carte menu, and if you eat between 5-7pm.

Pleasantly fresh flavours and inventive cuisine, could easily have been crispy wontons and orange sauce, but nothing at all like this!

Would definitely recommend to anyone, thoroughly enjoyed our meal, and staff couldn't have been lovelier!
