“Best in town”
Reviewed June 23, 2014

Party of 6 with a last moinute booking on Saturday evening . The meal was fantastic .Everything from the plumpt juicy mussels to the steak with Haggis was perfect. The waitress, Gillian deserves a special menetion as she worked alone between 20 diners and kept the meal moving at a relaxed nice pace and was very attentive to all.We will certainly be back !

“Fantastic Find just off A9”
Reviewed June 3, 2014

On drive south deliberately missed Aviemore and then required to eat. Great find, lovely welcome and service from the only waitress. Excellent choice from both Menu and specials. Food was beautifully presented and quality was just as good. A real find and highly recommended.

“Nice meal”
Reviewed May 24, 2014

Nice meal with really attentive service. The only thing which would have improved a nice meal was chips instead of the buttered mashed potatoes with the lovely battered fish. The fish was delicious and so was the mash but they just did not match somehow. In our humble opinion, I must add! Though we will absolutely return if in this scenic area as it was a very nice restaurant. It was busy so do book in advance as not a lot of choice in Newtonmore

“a fantastic hidden gem of a place”
Reviewed May 14, 2014

We arrived in Newtonmore about 8ish after a long drive from Stornoway and this place was the perfect venue to refuel and relax. A lovely and attentive waitress, friendly and very easy going greeted us and took us into a small room with about 10 tables which for me is the perfect size. The food was utterly amazing and to my shame I was surprised to find such a marvellous chef in such a small town as Newtonmore - I had clearly wrongly assumed for that small villages in Scotland had been passed by in the culinary stakes!

I would not hesitate to recommend this place to anyone - warm, welcoming and fantastic food...oh and VERY reasonably priced
