I visit Andersons every year when in the area, this was a sneaky extra treat and what a treat it was! All 4 of us chose something different and were really happy with our meals. The veggie choices were particularly good. The wine list was good too with an excellent Malbec. Thanks Andersons.

Great food with an extensive menu catering brilliantly for vegetarians and meat eaters alike. I'm not used to having such a variety of vegetarian dishes so we were spoilt for choice and look forward to returning and sampling other options. Staff very professional and ambiance stunning, I liken it to a top class city restaurant with a personal touch.

6 of us out for my fiancée's birthday meal. Wonderful ambiance. Very smart/casual feel about the restaurant. Were warmly greeted by staff. Table was set with table water and tasty homemade breads as we sat down. Food was very fresh and of an excellent standard - we had two vegetarians and there was plenty of choice. Special mention to the... More

Our dining experience here was very average to say the least and when compared to other reviews left us wondering why such a difference... the lunch portions are adequately sized for lunch with the food varying in quality - the adult burger was a real disappointment and lacked real flavour. Furthermore, the restaurant was quiet which may have contributed to... More

My husband and I enjoyed dinner here whilst staying the night at the nearby Boat Hotel. The candle-lit restaurant has a lovely warm atmosphere, with friendly, attentive staff. The food was truly excellent - I had the veggie bhaji burger, my husband had the venison, and we shared a sticky toffee pudding for dessert. Would highly recommend a meal here... More

100% food & service. Friendly & cosy little restaurant. Fully booked each night with 60+ covers. Food was the best we have tasted this week during our Aviemore trip. Very fresh & full flavours. Would highly recommend trying if you are in the area. That is if you can get a table of course!

Fabulous chicken, leek and ham pie at Andersons. They took us in when we arrived after a LONG drive North, through snow. Put us immediately into holiday mode. A Guid new year to all at Andersons. You must try this wonderful wee place.

WelcomeWhether you've something to celebrate, are at the end of a hard day's walking in the hills, or simply fancy a break from cooking at home, it is our wish at Anderson's that you all feel welcome. Forget pretence, the atmosphere here is relaxed and informal, so sit back, switch off, and savour the pleasure of great food and drink. Local Produce At Anderson's we are committed to using local Scottish produce when it is in season, so needless to say, our menu changes each month, along with our daily specials. Each dish is lovingly prepared and bought together in such a way as to bring out the very best of truly great, fresh ingredients. Although our menu is creative, our aim is simple, to present you with food that we are confident you will enjoy, and that tastes fantastic.Family Friendly The whole family is welcome at Anderson's, and it is important to us that everyone can tuck into something they will enjoy. So for children we can either offer half portions of anything on the menu, or for specific likes or dislikes, please feel comfortable to say, and the chef will be happy to come up with something to suit- within reason! Similarly please make us aware of any special dietary requirements you may have.“It’s great to see a restaurant like Andersons opening up in Boat of Garten. Owners Steve and Claire have put a huge amount of thought and effort into their set up, and their intended philosophy of utilizing the best of Scottish produce should be a real boost to the local restaurant scene. I wish them every success for the future.” Nick Nairn
