Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We had not visited for a while, but we were delighted by the food and wine we enjoyed. The lunch menu offered a wide choice and everything was enjoyed by our group. The wine picks, and the recommendations of our waiter, went down very well,...and a tasting of the Greek white was a revelation, and would encourage us to order this next time around. The service was efficient, friendly and unhurried, (although the booking form does point out that at busy times they might need to fit in another sitting.) In the event, this was not an issue. Orrin is definitely worth a detour if you are in the area, and we are fortunate to have it on our doorstep.More

We were in Elgin for a long weekend and had dinner here two nights in a row. The food was excellent and the staff was very attentive. I eat gluten free and clean and have a few other food intolerances. The kitchen were able to...adapt almost all the courses on the meny to my dietary requirement. The restaurant sources their ingredients locally and focus on quality. Also, the meny changes with the seasons so I am excited to go back next time I am in the area.More

It was a special anniversary meal. The food was excellent: unfussy, really good flavours & a great wine list too. The service was efficient, friendly but not intrusive and the ambiance perfect.

Went on Wednesday night for the fixed price menu dinner, accompanied by live music. We were warmly welcomed. Everything about the evening was absolutely perfect. Service was friendly and efficient, the music was background and beautiful. As for the food……..out of this world. Superbly presented...and delicious. Ok the portions were not huge but after three courses we were pleasantly full. A wonderful night out. Great to see the place busy, too. Well done all at Orrin. We will return..More

This place was such a lovely venue for lunch. The staff were super attentive and the service was brilliant. The choice of food in the menu suited everyone, with the accompanying artisan bread. Everything we ordered was of such a high standard. Accidentally meeting the...lovely Elaine to personally thank her for an outstanding lunch. We look forward to our next monthly trip to Elgin and sampling the new menu due to change next week. Thank you for a lovely meal.More

Appalling food well overpriced. One of the starters consisted of one scallop. The venison main was a monochrome mass of tough meat. The portions were a joke. There is fine dining and bad dining.

This restaurant was recommended to us and we managed to get a last minute booking. Staff were pleasant and helpful and food was fantastic. They serve local produce and my husband had scallops followed by venison wellington which was a treat to eat, I had...the sirloin which again was great. We never have a desert but were tempted by the bramble and toffee tart with raspberry sorbet, this again was amazing. They also make a great cocktail. Would highly recommend this restaurant if you are staying in Elgin.More

Excellent food and service. Visited on a Wednesday when they do a fixed price set menu and have live music. Our food was absolutely delicious and the singer was great too! I thought it was exceptionally good value given the standard of what we ate.

I don’t often write reviews but we had such a fantastic meal it is worthy of praise. We visited Orrin with our small children (4 and 7) and although it’s not a restaurant designed with a family focus we were made to feel so welcome....Our waitress, Emily, was absolutely outstanding and looked after us effortlessly. Most importantly the food was delicious and of a standard rarely seen in Scotland. Photos of the cauliflower veloute, beef shin wellington and pina colada baked Alaska don’t do them justice! We attended an early sitting so the value was very good. The decor and ambience are spot on. Thoroughly recommend.More
