The food at Roo's leap is excellent, fresh, tasty and well cooked, the burgers are out of this world.. make sure your hungry enough to eat them, We had the blackened chicken quesadillas ..lovely, Best to book as isn't huge and lots people waiting. The staff are friendly and very attentive. Directly on the train station at Avimore.

Set in the station building, the place has an Australian theme and bright, warm decor. Food is copious and well cooked. The menu is standard chain restaurant stuff (burgers, steaks, caesar's salad, chocolate fudge cake etc). Nothing special but good with kids or as a place to refuel after a day out in the air. A little dearer than other... More

We where first to be seated our meals came quickly, the food was basic with little taste, mostly from tins or jars! Nachos, & burger with chips! It was expensive for the type of food served. We won't go back

We eat here regularly and the food and service are great! There is an excellent selection to choose from at good prices and the views of trains trundling by and festive lights on the main street add to the ambiance! The decor is Australian as you would expect from the restaurant 's name with boomerangs and Aussie pictures on the... More

Handy location in centre of Aviemore and, as others have said, generous portions and good quality food.

Visited this restaurant with my parents. We went early in the evening so it was quiet when we arrived but was filling up by the time we left. We were greeted by a friendly waitress who showed us to our table and quickly took our drinks order. The menu offers a good choice, I opted for the rib eye which... More

aviemore has limited eateries and im sure this one used to be more expensive . We were on a bit of a budget so checked and the prices seem to have down. The nachos were a bit sloppy and the burgers were massive didn't really need a starter . All in all quite a nice atmosphere and the food is... More

Eaten here a few times over past years. If it's busy your Malay take longer than average to arrive. Food cooked very well and portions are hefty.
