Fine Dining at Spe restaurant, Dowans Hotel Aberlour


Spé is the original Gaelic word for Spey and forms part of a language once spoken across the Highlands and now enjoying a modern revival. We gave our restaurant the name Spé to reflect a cuisine which takes the staple dishes of traditional fine dining and gives them a fresh and exciting twist.

Our 3 or 5 course tasting menu aims to provide a reflection of the produce that is available throughout Scotland at varying points in the year with an element of finesse and a style that demonstrates the modern context that Scottish cuisine has taken over the last decade. Due to its seasonal nature, we aim to purchase produce that is available at that point in time from our suppliers and from local markets and, as such, we ask for notice of your preference for Spé at the point of reserving your table.

If you wish to add to the tasting menu experience, we also offer the option of a whisky or wine pairing so please ask at the time if this is something in which you might wish to indulge.
