We have visited a few times and the food and service is brilliant. I have been vegan for the last year and had the best vegan food so far here. My other half loved his sea bass, chicken dish and lemon baba too. Can’t fault it.

Nice warm welcome and enjoyed a drink in the bar area pre dinner. Given menus to time to make our choices and decide on a nice matching wine. Difficult to plump for the best food as the scallops were cooked perfectly, the tandoori Monkfish delicious, blow torch sea bass a wow and the dessert just brilliant. A great night out and despite the challenges of Covid a wonderful experience. We'll be back.

This was our first time visiting the Rowan Tree Hotel for an evening meal. The service was excellent and the covid measures in place for everyone's safety. The food was excellent and very well presented, the choices were very good and nothing was too much trouble for the staff.

Greeted by professional and friendly staff who welcomed us to their beautiful country hotel restaurant at Loch Alvie just over a mile from Aviemore. Service is fast and efficient without being rushed. Food was excellent and cooked to perfection and included halibut, salmon, lamb and duck. We will not hesitate to return when we next visit the Scottish Highlands.

We had a lovely meal at the Rowan Tree, having been before we knew the food would be incredible. Everything we ate was delicious and left us wanting more. The staff were very attentive and are working hard in the different circumstances. Our only disappointment was the position of our table which was rather close to the toilets so we had people going back and forward throughout our meal. It would have been nice to have heard the music that was being played in the main restaurant where we were sitting to improve the ambience too. We will definitely be back on our next visit to Aviemore.

My family and I enjoyed a lovely meal at the Rowan Tree when we visited Aviemore for a few days. I am coeliac and the options available were fantastic. Friendly service and C-19 restrictions managed really well. We left feeling full and very happy. Thank you Rowan Tree we will definitely be back next time we are in Aviemore.
