First visit was for lunch - excellent soup and jacket spuds. Service with a smile. Returned for a second visit of evening meal. Good food, something on menu for most palates. Salmon was cooked perfectly, chicken burger was HUGE (and great!), Caribbean chicken was good and the rice made a pleasant change. Service quick and staff pleasant. No hesitation in... More

Not sure if it was connected and I will reiterate that we are not sure that it was connected but all of us felt quite ill after eating here. And our son was throwing up. Nothing seemed awry in the restaurant and the service, etc was fine. The aftermath not so much...

We took the family for lunch, and had a great time. The restaurant is family friendly and there are plenty high chairs. Menu is extensive, and there is a good children's menu. Staff are all very friendly and attentive. Manager Sarah was extremely efficient. We would definitely go back!

Again, an evening meal in Aviemore. We booked ahead of time (thank goodness) and were in and out within an hour. Have to say though, we weren't rushed but were happy to get back to watch the commonwealth games! Have eaten, many years ago at the Montrose Roo's Leap. This was great. I had the Chicken Caesar‘s Salad - what... More

Having just had a terrible experience in Papa Rocks, we ventured down the street to Papa Roo's. We had a fantastic meal with wonderful, friendly and attentive servers. Would highly recommend!

I couldn't get over the size of the portions and the quality of the food. If you have had a day on the hills and need a good meal you have to visit here

We were drawn in here by the Mexican stuff on the menu but ended up having the ribs meal and the chicken satay. They serve huge American style portions so didn't see anyone having dessert and we were glad we didn't have starters. I ordered a side of onion rings and had to leave 2 (unheard of as I love... More

Return visitor here. Will be back again, Good grub, tolerant menu. Simple for the brats and more fulfilling for us. Exorbitant portions. Quick service. All good!
