Fined here a few times while on holiday and every time we have a great meal, highly recommend the big bob burger and the stuffed chicken

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

Been to Roos leap years ago & thought we would check it out again. Visited with family, on a fairly quite Monday night, staff seemed to be going through the motions. I would like to think the place would work better when it's actually busy & buzzing, this keep everyone on their toes. I enjoyed the ribs that I had,... More

Lovely meal with good service from staff. Kids menu has a decent choice and the main menu ranges from gourmet burgers, steaks, mixed specialities and mexican. Small choice of desserts and the chocolate brownie was delicious. Good choice for a relaxed family meal. Might be a tip to book table as can be busy at peak times.

Not very Australian, and not impressed by menu so settled for drinks only. Service was Ok. I understand the problems of being located on a railway station, but the big 'Toilets for customers only' notices do nothing for my expectations of a friendly welcome.

My husband and I dined here when staying in Aviemore and we were disappointed in the meal. For the price we paid the dinner was not much to speak of and there wasn't much that I would call Australian cuisine on the menu. The location is quite nice, the restaurant over looks the train station which is quite unique. The... More
