    Undercooked over thick ravioli, soggy chips and sad slice of tomato with overdone steak at £40, hard panna Cotta, possibly the worst I've had. Environment was deathly quiet, felt like we were sitting in a library. Over all a very underwhelming experience at a relatively high cost.

    A real restaurant with solid ethics around local sourcing delivering fantastic food - this is a rarity here in the highlands where despite the local produce there are very few chefs working hard to deliver this level of excellence. Partridge / steak and honey panacota were all a real treat - please please eat here if you are in the spey valley for a holiday - it’s worth the drive!

    First mouthful of lobster contained shell which put me off eating the remainder. Having booked a table, expected to be eating in the dining room and not the bar. Menu limited and poor.

    Dinner meal did not match tone of the menu. The helping of lamb was minute, two one inch round chunks accompanied by a third nondescript, fibrous substance. Displayed on a large plate the impression was of short rations with a tame effort at decoration. The potato chips were soggy and only just warm, a far cry from the ideal of golden outside, firm and toothsome and hot. The vegetables were warm, soggy and without any individual taste. The dessert was berries with pastry? Quite forgettable.

    Dined as a family of 4. The restaurant ambience and the staff were lovely. The food itself was lovely- however- we all found that for the cost of the meal the portion sizes were far too small. Further, having to pay a further charge for ‘vegetables’ was unreasonable considering the cost of the main courses. Larger portions would have made it a more memorable meal.

    So disappointed after receiving a voucher from my daughter for our 45th wedding anniversary, we expected a really good meal. I had a buffalo burger which was good, however my husband ordered pork. His meal consisted of two small squares of pork loin (which was a bit chewy) and one square of pork belly which he said was tasty and wished there was more! These squares were about 2 inches! Along with the pork, he had a dribble of jus which was drying up fast, 3 narrow sticks of very sour rhubarb and nothing else. For £24, it was a shocking main course. We shared my chips which were good but it was ridiculous he did not have a potato or veg of some description on his plate. I then ordered lemon meringue tart for pudding. The pastry was uncooked, the lemon filling and meringue were bland. My daughter and son in law had been there a few months ago and received a good meal, so we were expecting the same. I had mentioned it was our sapphire anniversary and expected a balloon on the table as a nice gesture, which is usually the case at other hotels but no acknowledgment whatsoever of our special occasion. So disappointed!!

    My friend and I both ordered the burger her one was under cooked. Asked the waitress if it could be given a quick fry as it was too pink for her. The waitress was ever so helpful and returned to say she would be getting a fresh burger and free of charge. We didn’t expect that but was very appreciative of this gesture.

    We are local and decided to try The Station again after a while. As ever we had a warm welcome and the lady who looked after us was lovely. She was warm, helpful and made sure we were happy throughout. The food was really good. Particular shout out to the halibut which was the nicest fish dish I’ve had in a long time. It was pretty quiet that day but we know the location means fits and starts, and it didn’t detract from our meal at all.

    Second visit to this small restaurant. Lovely place and the taste and presentation of the food is almost perfect. Sophisticated starters and main courses (excluding steak choice). Mostly feels like fine dining but steak was a bit over cooked from the rare requested and the side salad was just a few leaves randomly lying next to the meat. A surprising contrast to the sophistication of the cod dish which was beautifully presented with complex taste. Aside from the steak and chips the portions are small but full of flavour and using cooking techniques worthy of an upmarket city but in a village location. If you’re in Moray and are a foodie you must visit and if you love whisky especially so as each dish on menu lists a recommendation for a dram to pair with the dish. Food is locally sourced. But it is not a cheap dining experience and the service is friendly but languid. Don’t expect to eat in a hurry. Though with such delicious food why would you rush!

    Unfortunately there was a few issues with our food. The Ramen was infact not Ramen and more Yaki Soba and very over powering taste of Kimchi. The deserts were also a let down Panecotta and chocolate and mushroom tarte. The rest of the evening was lovely and I would recommend and return

    One of the best dinners I've ever had. Enjoyed the kale chips, Wagyu beef dish, and Chocolate Malt Barley for dessert. The Malt Taster cocktail is a must have, and it paired well with my meal. Staff was kind and attentive. Would go back again if I am lucky enough to return to Scotland.
