“Delicious, original food”
Reviewed 9 August 2014

Having never been in Aviemore, we stumbled across the Rowan tree after reading reviews saying it was excellent. The food was indeed fantastic, and both the starter and main course were original, good quality and perfectly cooked. The service was a little hurried, feeling a little liked the table was needed for a second sitting. Overall good value for a great feed. A little grown up for children I think.

“Delicious Meal”
Reviewed 26 July 2014

We had a fantastic evening at the Rowan Tree, the food was beautifully presented and delicious. The staff were very friendly and ensured we had a lovely relaxing meal. We had the chicken with haggis and the beef cakes for starters, trio of pork and lamb for mains and we both had the crime brûlée. Everything was cooked to perfection with generous portions. We would highly recommend the Rowan Tree.

“Probably one of the best meals we have had.”
Reviewed 20 July 2014

The two of us dined out on a Saturday evening and even although there was confusion over our booking they went to great trouble to fit us in.
Made us welcome and made sure everything was ready for us before taking us to our table.
The food was simply superb and they staff went to great lengths to ensure everything was OK for us.
Just wish more restaurants were as good.

“Amazing cheesecake”
Reviewed 12 July 2014 via mobile

Food is excellent. Well presented and good value. The staff are very friendly and efficient. The restaurant and bar have a nice atmosphere. I had the lamb, the chicken and the duck and enjoyed them all. The bakewell cheesecake is incredible. Highly recommended.

“Disappointing”
Reviewed 4 July 2014

Quite how this restaurant has attracted so many rave reviews, I fail to understand. My experience was of average cooking, amateur presentation and inappropriate taste combinations. The bar area is distinctly run down and the dining room lacks character. In short, not somewhere I would recommend to a friend.
