We visit Aviemore every January and always try and have a meal here. The burgers never disappoint, taste like a home made burger should, lovely chunky chips, great coleslaw, good service and very reasonably priced. Well worth the wait

We were a party of 5 adults and one child. Shown to our table by a very friendly waitress. Drinks order taken and we viewed the menu. Soup and a roll for the wee man.

Eaten here on a few occasions and food has always been good. Was busy and service was ok. Portions are always very generous and food tasty. Go hungry if you want to do 3 courses though as it's a big meal!!

We stopped here for lunch on Sunday. The staff were nice and friendly. I ordered the Aussie burger which was very nice, my husband had the monster burger which he would recommend if you are VERY VERY hungry! It's huge!

Had a delicious Aussie burger and hubby had a chicken burger. Mine was lovely, very slightly pink meat and flame grilled. Hubby enjoyed his also but thought the chicken was dry. Don't bother ordering starters....the portions are huge!

The place was packed however the girl serving us was very efficient and kind. One thing I would advise customers to do is book to avoid... More

Bland nachos followed by tasty haddock in batter and bland chips, kind of sums it up. There was really nothing Australian on the menu, even the Australian fish and chips was typically Scottish, except that it came with salad. Fortunately there was no Ozzie beer on draught; a plus point being the excellent Cairngorm Tradewinds. Quick efficient service in a... More

Not sure about this place. Wrong drinks and starters but rectified. Onion blossom starter was excellent. Teriyaki burger, chicken was very dry. Friendly staff and service was quick. Thought it might have had more Australian dishes on the menu given the name. Would give it another try next time in Aviemore To make my mind up.

Having previously dined at the Montrose branch of Roo's Leap I specifically hunted this restaurant out in Aviemore. A really good lunch time meal, we had potato skins (3 loaded halves), bruschetta 2 slices both served with a really tasty fresh side salad. Main courses were Aussie burger (bacon, cheese, pineapple, egg, beetroot) and a standard Cheese burger both served... More
