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.

We loved our experience at the Rowan Tree, and would highly recommend the restaurant to anyone. We were celebrating a special occasion and our waitress went out of her way to make our night memorable. The food was delicious and our waitress was excellent at recommending whiskies for us!

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.

The ambience suffered only because of covid restrictions, which are understood of course. Our waiter was lovely, the food was immaculately presented and extremely good quality, though a shame one of the specials had run out and we hadn't been advised prior to ordering, hence two of our party ordered it then had to re-think when the waiter came back to tell us it was gone. Other staff were also very good, attentive, warm and welcoming.

Informed when booking we had vegetarians and a vegan. Vert limited menu- only one choice for both. Portions very small but good quality. Need more choice for vegetarians
