We had a special night out - our first in 2 years without children and we weren't disappointed. It's small but lovely. Food was really tasty and excellent value, massive portion size! Lovely people running the restaurant, down to earth, friendly and professional. Recommended for a relaxed evening.

Great food, good service and a very happy atmosphere! This is a family-run restaurant, with a modern, clean interior. Fresh sea-food was my choice - and I wasn't disappointed!

If you are ever in the Aviemore area it is worth taking the time to find this place - although booking is recommended as there are only about 6 tables! If you want a relaxed atmosphere with good grub this is the place to go - in fact we were in the area for 2 weeks and ate there 4 times! It is a family run restaurant with Andrea as the genial hostess, her father cooks and her husband helps out too. Service is relaxed but yet efficient and with Andrea's warm personality you will not only end up striking up a conversation with her but the other diners too - something we would not consider at home! Her farther cooks the most excellent of dishes with something on the menu for everyone. Prices are reasonable for a first class small restaurant with a good selection of wines and beers - we went home quite tiddly some nights! It's probably a good thing that this restaurant is a good 10 hour car journey from where we live otherwise Andrea may never get rid of us!

This restaurant doesn't look like anything special from the outside. In fact, it looks like a conservatory from the outside, and someone's front room from the inside. But this is part of its charm. The owner is a very welcoming lady, who makes you feel like you've just popped round to her house for dinner. However, the food is far from ordinary. My husband had the fillet steak, and said it was perfectly cooked, and one of the very best he'd ever had (including some very expensive ones in posh US steakhouses). I had venison steak and found it melt-in-the-mouth soft and not too gamey. All the cooking is done by the owner's dad, and the mum and husband help out, making this a lovely, homely, family-run business. The desserts were superb as well, and we left feeling amazed that we'd stumbled across one of the best restaurants we'd ever been to, by accident, and we hadn't had to pay through the nose for it!
