Eaten here before and it is very good value for the all you can eat option. The food is not out of this world but is well prepared and tasty. It was the Harley Davidson weekend when we were there so not sure how busy it is normally but it was packed out and everyone seemed to be having a... More

A meal here is one of the first things I do when I visit Aviemore. We had a really good meal, the steak was perfectly prepared, maybe the best I've had. The staff were as friendly as always. Looking forward to the next visit.

Went here twice a year ago and it was very good, but not anymore the staff are a bit cold and the food has gone down hill a lot since our last visit. All the pizzas were over done and tasted the same and the pasta dishes were a bit tasteless .

A genuine Italian restaurant with an all day buffet. A constant refreshment of pasta, pizza and salads ensures that the food is always good. A set price with a children's discount price, includes a nice selection of desserts.Always busy so best to book.

Just had an excellent meal of T-bone steak and salad. Absolutely delicious and my guest said it was the best he had ever eaten. Chargrilled taste was sublime. Service attentive and friendly as usual. The place was packed out with it being Thunder in the Glens weekend but nothing was too much trouble. And the size of the steak meant... More

We returned at the request of our daughters who loved this place last time we were in Aviemore 2 years ago - nothing has changed, still the great choice, friendly service and good quality food. We opted for the buffet which was constantly restocked with numerous fresh pizzas, also pastas, huge range of salads and desserts

Opted for the 'all you can eat' buffet option, at a price of £12:95 per person, which included unlimited pizza, pasta and salad and a dessert bar serving a delicious range of cakes, jellies and ice creams! Most staff friendly, although some look as though they don't want to be there. Efficient service with empty plates and glasses cleared from... More

Whilst on holiday in Aviemore we visited La Taverna and partook of their excellent buffet. The choice was excellent, with a super salad bar, great choice of pasta and pizza not to mention the desserts. The quality was super and the taste was fantastic! As a vegetarian I wasn't restricted at all! The atmosphere was super as was the service... More

The buffet is really good value but can be very busy, pizza and salad are excellent but the pasta is a bit bland. Overall very good value for money

If you're a walker, this is your place after a long and hard walk in the Cairn Gorms. Epic volumes of food at the buffet including unlimited pasta and pizza combined with a selection of cold salads and desserts all for a reasonably priced £12.95. Service is efficient with empty plates picked up in seconds. As per previous reviews, don't... More
