Wanted to try International starters for a wee while either Edinburgh or Aviemore, eventually planned a trip to Aviemore and booked in at International Starters. From waling in the door to leaving the service was great and very welcoming. Asked for some advice and waitress couldn't be more helpful, decided on a number of starters and a lovely wine. One of starters wasn't available so they made a special for us which was similar, very nice of them. The pace of the starters coming to the table was perfect. Last one wasn't so nice as lamb was a bit fatty, pointed this out and full of apologies, took it away, offered something else, then took it off our bill. That is the kind of service you should expect if something is not quite right. Go for the Haggis!!

Service was really good and the place had a clean, contemporary feel. Our toddler was made to feel welcome. Eateries in Aviemore are over-priced and this place seemed to offer better value for money. The range of dishes was good but it's best to expect around the same standard of food you might expect in a pub chain. Our meals arrived very quickly and I thought these could only have been microwaved.

We visited this restaurant twice and enjoyed the quality of food and atmosphere. They do a special which is 2 courses for £10.95 - excellent value. In all, a good experience.

A great idea to have lots of starters so that you can choose to have several to yourself or share with everyone round the table. There is fare from all over the world.
I don't agree that the food was" supermarket ready" mealish! Our fish, roasted veg etc was all obviously freshly cooked!!

5 of us Dined at the Resturant on a Wednesday night, we all agreed the interior of the resturant was modern and looked ok, we also liked the idea of tapas style dining, sadly we were all agreed that the food was poor and not very good value, it reminded me of shop ready meals that were warmed up in a microwave, sorry folks, nice idea, poor delivery.
