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

“Best Mash Ever”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2014

Friendly service. Fresh produce cooked really well. Great poached egg on melt in the mouth fish cakes. Amazing ice cream selection - Szechuan orange & Jaffa cake - included in the afogato. Delicious! We'll be back.

“How has it taken us so long to go?!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2014

Had group booking / pre theatre meal before going off to see the Showboaters in the local village hall. Having known about Andersons for as many years as it has been open I am not sure how we have managed not to go!

Had a lovely meal the highlight of which was smoked haddock risotto with a poached egg on top oh and the bread on the table was pretty fabulous too.

We will be back and sorry for taking so long to try things out. To be honest we have heard good things, bad things and indifferent things about the restaurant and this just goes to show that you are better off seeing for yourself.

“Weekend visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2014

Weather was great and the village of Boat of Garten was lovely with friendly locals. We stayed at Moorfield House, on Deshar Road and had a great time. Went to the Showboaters rendition of "Calendar Girls" in the Community Hall and that was excellent! Well done everyone!

“Great Service and good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2014

We booked a table in advance for 6 people for valentines day and we had a good meal here. The service was fantastic and we enjoyed our meals in particular the starter. ,As nice as the mains were, my friend and I who had the vegetarian option, thought that it was a little dry and needed some sort of a sauce with it, such as salsa. My boyfriend said his lamb was tasty but it didn't fall off the bone, he really liked the affogato after dinner coffee shot.
