Ballater is decimated by the winter flooding. Many establishments are closed for repairs or being sold. Add the loss of the Victorian railway station due to fire, it's sad to see so much damage to such a lovely wee village. Well done the butcher, Byzantium...More

We eat here on a fairly regular basis and the food and service is always good. Miss not having steak on the menu but whatever we have is always tasty and well presented. Can't wait to go back once the flood damage has been repaired

This is a good pizza restaurant in the lovely town of Ballater. It was very quiet when we visited due to dreadful weather and the time of year, but the welcome was hearty, the food and wine excellent, the service speedy and the prices reasonable.

Dropped into this very busy little restaurant for dinner during a recent trip to Ballater. The building itself is very attractive and inside it's cosy and inviting. Although we were there midweek it was very busy. Service was efficient. The food was plentiful but we...More
