Super little place - friendly staff, good service and locally sourced food with an imaginative menu. Restaurants like this need to prosper so please do visit if you're in the Boat area.

Managed to book a table at the end of service one night. Staff were friendly and service was good. Food was really nice and just a little bit different. Lovely evening and well worth a visit.

Probably the best steak I have ever had in a UK restaurant. Worth travelling to if you are in the cairngorm area - we were in Aviemore, and it was definitely a highlight of the trip

Thank you so much, our beef is always local and a credit to our farming community.

Value for money deals on meals as well as special nights, continues to be worth returning again and again and we've yet to receive a single negative comment from our guests or visitors we've taken to Anderson's.

Sorry, we don’t allow dogs. We are a very small one roomed restaurant, unfortunately not everyone loves dogs, so on that basis we have to say no. Thank you for understanding. Happy New Year. Steve Anderson

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
