Description: WelcomeWhether you've something to celebrate, are at the end of a hard day's walking in the hills, or simply fancy a break from cooking at home, it is our wish at Anderson's that you all feel welcome. Forget pretence, the atmosphere here is relaxed and informal, so sit back, switch off, and savour the pleasure of great food and drink. Local Produce At Anderson's we are committed to using local Scottish produce when it is in season, so needless to say, our menu changes each month, along with our daily specials. Each dish is lovingly prepared and bought together in such a way as to bring out the very best of truly great, fresh ingredients. Although our menu is creative, our aim is simple, to present you with food that we are confident you will enjoy, and that tastes fantastic.Family Friendly The whole family is welcome at Anderson's, and it is important to us that everyone can tuck into something they will enjoy. So for children we can either offer half portions of anything on the menu, or for specific likes or dislikes, please feel comfortable to say, and the chef will be happy to come up with something to suit- within reason! Similarly please make us aware of any special dietary requirements you may have.“It’s great to see a restaurant like Andersons opening up in Boat of Garten. Owners Steve and Claire have put a huge amount of thought and effort into their set up, and their intended philosophy of utilizing the best of Scottish produce should be a real boost to the local restaurant scene. I wish them every success for the future.” Nick Nairn

“Great food, excellent staff”
Reviewed 13 November 2013 via mobile

We were recommended to go to this great little restaurant and were not disappointed. Staff are excellent, very friendly, polite and interested in the food they provide. We had mussels with a great garlicky sauce, lambs liver with mustard mash and wild mushroom sauce, quite a lot of the mushrooms were cultivated sadly but tasty sauce all the same, fish pie (Cod ) nice fresh fish made a tasty pie. Pecan and Maple Ice cream to finish. Great to see food and staff of this quality in tiny Boat of Garten.
Highly reccommended.

“Excellent food”
Reviewed 2 November 2013

My family have eaten in Anderson's on four occasions and each time has been excellent. The staff are very friendly and are great at dealing with my son's gluten free request.

“A little bit of a surprise!”
Reviewed 1 November 2013

My husband had read a review on the restaurant, and as we were staying in the area decided to try it for ourselves. It was booked up for the first few days for dinner,so we managed a couple of soup warming lunches, then managed to get a booking for dinner.The menu covered a large selection which catered for 9 and 11 year old boys and adults also. I had both starter courses for first and main,full up but managed a ginger and honeycomb homemade icecream. Their selection of home made icecream must be tried,even the baked potatoe one. the service from the 2 young lads excellent.

“Pie NIght”
Reviewed 31 October 2013

If you are ever in the area, this little place is a must!! Pie night is fantastic value and quality is not compromised. The main menu looks brilliant and we will return again to try that out. Staff are very helpful and knowledgeable about the food on offer. The whole experience was one you will remember.
You have to try out some of the weird and wonderful homemade ice-cream flavours.... Baked Potato ( completely bonkers but fantastic) Ricotta, honey and rosemary.. MMMMMM YUM. Well done a great place and for a Wednesday in late October, it was packed. Thanks for a great dinner!

“Pie Night”
Reviewed 30 October 2013

A great meal at Andresons on pie night. Those who didn't go for a pie option realised they may have made the wrong choice on the night but their food was good too. Easy for and helpful for the children. A pint of Trade Winds with the pie offer was a great result.
