My family have had a property at Dalfaber since it opened. We haven't eaten at the Restaurant for 6 years as it was so bad. Decided to give it a try and we were surprised to find that it's probably worse than before. Ordered Venison stew and Shepherds pie. After five minutes we were informed there was no Venison so changed to medium rare steak( it advertises as a steak restaurant) We waited 40 minutes with no food then asked where it was; a few minutes later it arrived. In the meantime I over heard a Mummy at the next table ( the only other table in use!) say I think the service is quicker at home!! The children were getting restless with the long wait, Steak looked fine, not brilliant presentation. It was Medium not Medium Rare as requested ; something in a Steak Restaurant you would expect it to be just right. The Shepherd's Pie was inedible, tasteless and dry. Very poor presentation. Schools dinners would be better! When we pointed out the poor quality of the meals the manager was called . He seemed surprised as if this never happened but reading other review this is not an unusual problem. Goodness knows how they cope if there were more than 2 tables to service.

Earlier in the week my daughter, son in law and 1 year old daughter ate there, here is her tale!
So we went for dinner because the welcome notes you get advertised 30% off and kids eat free between 5pm and 7pm although the sign on the bar says 5pm-6.30pm or vice versa, anyway we turned up at about twenty past 5 and I double checked about the deal before sitting down. We ordered the bread basket and oil and vinegar and haggis balls for us all to share for starter and the kids platter for Anneli which was priced at £3 after about twenty minutes the lady came out with a ginormous plate of chicken fillets chips and peas (we didn’t order this) she apologised and said she’d pressed the wrong button, but by this time we were just happy to see some food so said we’d keep it as long as we were only charged for the platter which we ordered rather than £7.50 for the chicken a further 20 minutes, Anneli has eaten all the peas and some chicken we got our bread and haggis balls, the balls were lovely the bread was stale and had been reheated too often, but by this time nearly an hour after we’d sat down Anneli was getting restless so we ordered strawberries and melon from the children’s menu for her after about 10 minutes they came back and said they had no melon. At this time there was only us and one other couple with their adult disabled boy in the restaurant at this point we asked to take away our main courses another 15-20 minutes till they came out in the boxes by this time Anneli was over tired and miserable ...so were her parents.
We certainly won't be back

On a quiet evening we had average service (could have been a little more friendly) and our steak and salmon meals were fine but nothing out of the ordinary. We did expect a better tasting steak for s Scottish restaurant and the meal at £45 for two with a couple of drinks was not cheap. The starter and dessert menus did not enthuse us at all.

The room was cosy and with a roaring fire available for the winter this could be a good place to eat......it just felt too 'managed' rather than friendly.

Visited aviemore for a night away and decided to eat here as the menu looked lovely however very much a let down. Ordered our meal and after an hour had to ask for the bread and balsamic vinegar we ordered..and hadnt even had our starters. There was only one waitress and one guy who seemed to be doing frount of house. There was only 4 or 5 tables in but no one was happy. Meals were coming out one at a time and some people at tables were half way through their meal and they were just bringing out the other meals for the rest of their table.

I watched the gentleman doing front of house being rude to anyone that raised an issue. When our main meals finally came out they were both cold. My meal would have actually been lovely if it was warm but unfortunately it was cold and crusty. My partnera steak was terriblw and more reassembled a burger..not what you expect for a £32 steak ...when he politely brought this up with the gentleman incharge he was nothing but rude and sarcastic. To be fair they did give us a deduction off the meal but was less than the price of the steak.

The worst part of the meal however was how unfriendly and rude the staff were..and not just to us. Id hate to see what it was like when its busy. How somewhere can charge these prices and provide such poor service is beyond me..and from the previous reviews this seems to be an ongoing issue that management are turning a blind eye to.

Very well presented courses and children particularly liked their specials. Grownups’ food okay. Wines a tad expensive but good array of beers and spirits. Lovely desert. Haggis and black pudding starter probably the high spot for me.

Ate here one quiet Tuesday night and the menu looked appealing. We ordered fillet steaks (£32 each) expecting them to be worth it, being as it’s a steak restaurant. When they arrived, neither was cooked as we had asked (one rare, one medium rare), both were medium. Not good enough for the amount we were paying and the fact that steak was meant to be the specialism. We also ordered a side dish which never arrived. When we asked, it took so long to arrive that we had finished our mains. The price of the side wasn’t knocked off our final bill, which it really should have been. Overall, we paid a lot of money for a very disappointing meal. Would not return.
