This was a truly spectacular meal. The wine, the bread, the service. All before the starter. We had the pigeon which was prepared perfectly. The crown jewel was the Aberdeen Roast Beef with giant Yorkshire puddings. This was a meal we will never forget. The staff were fantastic, James was very accommodating and the adjoining gift shop was a delight. 5 stars, we can’t recommend highly enough.

We went for dinner on the 16th March with some friends as we had been here a year ago and it was really good. Again the staff were really lovely and nothing was too much trouble for them, in fact we wandered past the restaurant at lunchtime and the manager came out and invited us into have a look around.
The food was amazing with a new menu that week, most of us had the langoustine starter which was so good and the beef main was just excellent, the best we have ever tasted.
It so worth a visit, we wish we lived nearer and could go more often!
Well done to all the staff at this amazing restaurant.

A special blend of the best local sourcing combined with superb cooking, in a luxurious setting. In a larger family group, our table had a great view into the kitchen to watch chef's team delivering a real depth of flavours, with a high level of attention to detail in the service, this is a spectacular restaurant.

We have visited the Rothesay a number of times now and have always felt the service we have received has been 5*. The menu is always local seasonal produce and cooked to the highest standard. Our visits to this restaurant always makes us feel like we have been treated like VIP’s. A big thank you to all the staff. At time of writing the web page would not allow me to rate the service, the food and the value, all of which I would rate 5*

Serving local seasonal food in a traditional Scottish restaurant is just to way to celebrate a relaxed birthday lunch. From arrival, where we were warmly greeted, to the décor, the menu selection, the faultless and very friendly service, and last but not least the quality of food .... it was all absolutely superb.

The Rothesay Rooms have a small menu serving local seasonal food. It works. There is something for everyone. The prices are very good. The wine is served beautifully chilled and everyone thoroughly enjoyed the food, service and ambiance of this lovely restaurant.

The small Highgrove shop next door is delightful and, again, there's something for everyone in there.

This is a must visit if in Ballater and if not, it's well worth a drive to get here.
