Great Place to Stop for Lunch

We had lunch here after our train ride. Big portions! Good food! I ordered the hamburger. Something for every age on the menu.

This place is great! The portions are huge, food is good, drinks are good, service is relaxed and friendly. We had a good time here and left stuffed. It's nothing fancy, just food, but the atmosphere is different and decor random. We had the salmon and the burrito. Both were huge and well done. Two bits of salmon is more... More

I visit Aviemore regularly and usually make a visit to Roos Leap. The foods good and simple portions well sized. Fills a rumbling tummy after a long day out on the hills.

First time in Roo's Leap and impressed by the menu and prices. Opted for a baked potato and side of onion rings - good size and very filling. One of our party had a burger that she said tasted good. Child friendly too. Will be back.

Food was cold, ordered fillet steak with king prawn, steak was ok, prawns were tiny & rubbery, chips were cold, plate was full of lettuce! Husband ordered Jamaican jerk chicken, it was very bland! Service was poor, wrong wine given & bill basically thrown on table as soon as our main plates were cleared, when complained about food was told

This is a lovely restaurant with very friendly and helpful staff. The food was delicious with a big variety on the menu. The service was quick and we didn't wait long for our food. The views are beautiful.

We stopped in for lunch recently, after a friend had recommended it. We were warmly welcomed and there were plenty of spare tables, so it was nice to be given a big table with a bit of space instead of being clumped together like some restaurants would. We ordered burgers and a couple of sides, as we thought we'd let... More

Went in for dinner with the kids, staff from the start were friendly and spaced dinners out instead of grouping everyone in one corner of a quiet restaurant which was good. I ordered the Louisiana Magic Burger which was lovely, the burgers are big and juicy and cooked well, the seasoning on the burger added a good flavour. The kids... More
