This food is delicious. The only problem we had is that the menu was not up to date and many items were not available. Also the local beer was not available much to the disappointment of 2 of our party.

Outstanding dining experience yet again. Staff attentive, service first class, food too good to describe, can't be faulted. Wonderful vegetarian options for myself and my partner loved his choices also. We will return!

We were a big group of 16 yet Andersons managed to get our mains out altogether from a la carte menu and all delicious. The French man in the group even said the Tartiflette was good :-)

Sorry, we don’t allow dogs. We are a very small one roomed restaurant, unfortunately not everyone loves dogs, so on that basis we have to say no. Thank you for understanding. Happy New Year. Steve Anderson

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
