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

“a welcoming haven of good food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2012

in the winter in the Highlands its difficult to find anything other then standard pub fare. We drove 22 miles to eat here after a week of microwaved pub grub and had an excellent meal combining local produce with influences from around the world.

“Innovative cooking”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2012

We went for a Saturday Lunch but at 1330 the restaurant was empty; last orders are 1345. The lunch menu is 2 course at £7.99 with dessert also an option. Each of us had a tasty variation of Tartaflette . My wife opted for a fish risotto which was saffron flavoured and exquisite. My chicken stuffed with smoked haggis and served with garlic roasted poato in a stack over a whisky flavoured jus was so full of delicious flavours and perfectly cooked / presented.
There wasn't room for pudding which sounded very tempting.

With a glass of wine, £22 for a superb lunch for 2 was great value

“Hidden Gem!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2011

A really wonderful family run restaurant. Excellent food and a very friendly staff who really cared about each and every table. Not much to look at from the outside, but once inside a really worthwhile eating experience. Excellent value for money and a really good chef. We would recommend this hidden gem to anyone!!
