Big tasty portions. Good value.

Really enjoyable meal. Excellent friendly service without being OTT. We had the chicken burgers - lovely lovely flavour from the chicken breasts. Only one of us managed a pudding - the cheese cake was also the best we've tasted for quite a long time.

Impromptu visit as we were getting camping reserves. I'm a bit of a burger guru and the Burger I had (can't remember the name) rates as one of the best I've had in the UK. Great service, clean facilities, nice surroundings and great value for money.

Very accommodating, nice setting and a great menu choice. The food is very reasonably priced and the drinks. Our waitress was welcoming and very pleasant, very efficient with all 17 meals arriving together and piping hot. Blossom onion and burgers are really great, also offer a lovely choice of well priced cocktails.

Me and my husband originally visited Roo's Leap on the first night it opened and were the second customer's in the restaurant. This place has kept the quality of food and service to an impressive high since it opened. We have now visited Aviemore 4 times in the last 10 years and Roo's Leap is a restaurant to go to!!!...

Went with the kids on recommendation. Great hand made burgers and resteraunt is exactly what it says on the tin. Service was superb and the girls although rushed off their feet were polite and on the ball throughout. Would recommend for no fuss food.

And what it is, is a good solid restaurant offering large portions of generally good food to families and famished hillwalkers / skiers (depending on season) at reasonable prices.
