“Plain fayre, well done, good price.”
Reviewed July 11, 2012 via mobile

Had a seafood selection tonight, with scallops with apple and bacon, followed by grilled fillet of seabass. Starter was tasty and well presented, and the bass had a simple but freshly prepared accompaniment of hand made chips and medley of veg. All ingredients very fresh, simply but well prepared.
Including my fizzy water (although the wine list appeared very good value) , I received change out of £20!
Superb!

“Excellent meal and good service”
Reviewed April 26, 2012

This is a small family run restaurant right in the centre of Dulnain Bridge which serves really good scottish food at a very reasonable price. Andrea, the daughter who runs front of house, was very welcoming and George, her father who is the chef, produced some extremely good dishes which were beautifully presented. Their website (http://www.riverside-dulnain.com) says they use mainly locally sourced food and it certainly tastes fresh. We were also impressed that the cost of wine was very reasonable compared to the usual mark-up you normally get in restaurants - and it was good wine too!

We visited on a cold, wet April night, but they have got a nice outside seated area for the summer and they have had pine marten and red squirrel visiting their garden which can be seen from the restaurant window.

I think this is a restaurant worth travelling to, since it is in easy reach of Aviemore and Grantown-on-Spey and is situated right in the middle of the Cairngorm National Park. We would certainly go again if we go back to that area. We would highly recomend you pay it a visit!
