During the day this is a basic cafe restaurant but the food is good, hot and tasty especially if you have been out in the snow! It gets pretyy busy during ski season so sometimes its difficult to get a table. Comy setees overlook the viewing platform and there are also good views from the window tables.

When youve climbed up Cairngorm or spent the day skiing the Ptarmigan is a welcome stop for refreshments. The staff are always pleasant and helpful, even cooking my very cold son chips after they had stopped serving!
Been there on many occaisions whilst walking and skiing and look forward to visiting again very soon.

Arrived here mid afternoon. Tables weren't that clean but hot chocolate and cakes were lovely and the restaurant was a welcoming, warm environment from the zero degree temperate outside!

I've been here a few times and the same thing seems to come to mind. The hot chocolate is nice, but not phenomenal, The food is kind of shop self service/works canteen fayre. It didnt help that there were umpteen tradesmen and workers all using the diner at the same time as us, so we were in a queue with the workers to buy lunch which didnt really make the experience a positive one especially at the prices they charge. It actually felt like we were in a works canteen without the subsidy. The views are brilliant, breathtaking, but the eating experience is a bit of a let down. I'd bring a packed lunch next time.
