Visited today and was quite disappointed with my lunch and also the cost of this. I had ordered a panini and also a baked potato. The panini was quite hard round the edges and the potato was obviously done in the microwave. The salad was very standard salad that i could have done myself. I was shocked when the bill... More

Dear customer. We are very disappointed with your review and with the fact that the food didn't meet your expectations. We can assure you that our baked potatoes are baked in the oven and the salad on the plate is complimentary. We are using only the high quality ingredients like Orkney cheddar for your baked potato or Royal Ice creams... More

I took my parents out for a lunch and ended up in the Quaich. It might not have been my first choice but I'm really glad we chose it. We ordered two salads which were very well presented and far more than just salads with quite a variety of different ingredients that made for a real treat. I ordered the... More

Lovely food and great service. The Scottish breakfast is fantastic along with the soups the baked potatoes etc etc I could go on. The burgers are not so good and I've had a few bad ones, I'd suggest changing your supplier or trying a different range? Very bitty with hard bits and just not that good. I've stopped having them...

We had a small private function here and the service and help we got was exceptional. Pamela and Martin went out of their way to make it a special evening and Megan was an excellent waitress. The food was delicious and efficiently served and the magic show put on specially for us was just that-MAGIC.

Just been to visit The Quaich in Fochabers and can honestly say that was the best breakfast I have eaten in 48 years, my question now is, do they open Sundays ??

Visited this cafe today. Very nice welcome from waitress. We had a lovely breakfast. Poached eggs cooked perfectly and the nicest smoked bacon I have tasted in some time. Omelette too was nicely cooked and filling lovely. Definitely worth getting off the main road and enjoy some good food in Fochabers.

Went on Tuesday lunchtime, my mother in law is gluten free and often finding anywhere that offers more than one GF option is a challenge, The Quaich had a whole double sided menu for her to choose from.

Excellent meal and venue for a private function for a 60th birthday. Food options and service were great. Staff were very accommodating and helpful. Would definitely recommend using the venue for this type of function.

Service was second to none. Food was delicious, especially the macaroni cheese which we all ate. We were able to enjoy our lunch and chatter without being rushed, whilst being provided with super food, friendly atmosphere and excellent service. We will be back here without doubt.
