“Excellent food and service ...”
Reviewed April 11, 2014 via mobile

Our second visit and once again not disappointed. We are vegetarian and asked if there was any other options available and the waiter came back with a list of options. The food was excellent and a nice relaxing place to eat. Would defiantly come back again. Lovely staff.

“Thanks to the staff and management at Aspects”
Reviewed February 27, 2014

Just to say that the breakfasts and evening meals for my family at Aspects were delicious and the service was second to none. Special thanks to all the Staff and Istuan for taking us to the ski slopes. Mark & Ruth Adams.

“Disappointing!”
Reviewed February 26, 2014 via mobile

We decided to eat here after seeing all the good reviews. We walked into a large empty restaurant at 7.30pm, we were the only people there, despite this we sat down and looked at the pitiful menu. The choice of the set meal or al la carte. On the al la carte menu there was only 2 options for each course and not very exciting either. The music had stopped by the time we came to order. We were told the starter we both wanted was not available in an empty restaurant, so who had ordered it all I'll never know. Awkward atmosphere and the food was not good at all, my partners alternative starter looked like a tesco value pate. I personally would not recommend this restaurant.

“Magnificent”
Reviewed February 22, 2014 via mobile

We stayed at The Highland Hotel for 4 days whilst skiing in the Cairngorms and eat in this restaurant twice.

The food was of excellent quality with great, fresh ingredients. The service was also very good with pleasant, happy staff.

The bar service was perhaps the only 'development' area. Took a little too long. Probably not helped that it's a fair distance from the restaurant. This is a minor point.

My son caught a decent size trout in a local Loch and the restaurant agreed to cook it for him, making his stay.

Well done Macdonald Hotels. This restaurant is a Jewel and should be celebrated.

Make sure you book even if you are staying in the hotel as it seemed full every night we were there.
