    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

    Menu a little strange - not many non-meat options as main courses. Would have been good to have a chicken dish available. Some strange pairings - chocolate malt and mushroom tart for dessert?

    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.

    Delicious menu with many gluten free options or adaptations available. Particularly liked the pairing of drinks with items on menu. Loved the attention to the use of local produce to keep their carbon footprint low. Most definitely a 4* hotel with a relaxed ambiance and attentive but not intrusive staff. Will return again.

    Our first visit to the Station and it was a very nice meal. Good varied menu, the tasting platter was very good. Main courses and desserts were well presented. The wage beef was nice and my request for more jus was quickly attended to. The steak was well cooked and nicely presented. Desserts were also very nice and presentation spot on. Waiting staff very attentive and helpful. We would come back.

    The hotel itself was excellent. Staff were wonderful and attentive. However, the food was severely lacking. The beef burgers were practically rubber. Everything was extremely salty, almost to the point of being inedible. The food really let us down on an otherwise perfect experience.

    The food and service were absolutely fantastic and the visitors we took with us were very impressed with the Station Hotel. The evening we visited was at the end of the Speyside Whisky Festival and there was a large group who had obviously been partaking in the tastings available and were a little noisy but we didn't let that spoil our enjoyment.

    Super locally sourced food. We have been to dine three times, and have not been disappointed. Very attentive and knowledgable staff. Good knowledge of their wines. Quality of food is to a very high standard. I would say the quality is certainly worth the price. We hope to go back again soon.

    Nice place, you can see they have spent a small fortune on the place. But a mixed bag, but in a good way.. . Having been lucky to eat in many top end restaurants i can say the chef is very good and the food is very good with strong punchy flavours. Also nicely arranged on the plate and the pig fat brulee was delicious... Yes, you read that right, pig fat brulee... This compounds my belief that the chef at the burners is a talented offering. Also lots of variable drinks on offer so you wont be struggling for your tipple of choice, including whisky of course. The staff are also lovely and i have no complaint with them... But, the speed of service is bonkers, 4 courses in 1 hour. The kitchen is running at speed, you dont get time to enjoy the theatre of the meal which is a shame. Starters came out whilst eating the bread, starters gone, wham, heres you main which was taken away whilst i was eating my last mouthful then 5 mins for starters then loitering for the bill. When we said we didnt want anything else, we were told "Thats fine, take your time", so why so fast! There was 3 tables when we arrived so not busy so why the rush! Its a nice place with nice food, you just dont get to enjoy the experience as you feel like a duck being fed for foie gras. That can only be the kitchen not the waiting staff but the staff are in a rush too which is a shame. I know thay have a 1.5hr slot per table but it wasnt a big deal on our visit with a 40% capacity. This is the only thing that spoilt our evening. When you want fast food go to BurgerKing when you go out for a meal you want relaxation not indigestion. To conclude great chef,great looking place way too fast, please slow down you deserve it.
