We ate here on our family holiday in the area. It has nice surrounding, good atmosphere and friendly staff.....But the food and price lets it down ! We took the buffet option which was expensive at £12.95 for dried out pizza, shop bought frozen garlic bread and sloppy pasta. But the sweet options were much better than the mains....There is...

Big. Full. Fast food. Lots of children. All you can eat £12.95. Boze expensive (cheap carafe £19) (Beer £4.50) – salad good – pasta tasteless – pizza thin crust but all pizzas look and taste the same – but it is clean – and convenient for the hotel – pleasant foreign staff speak English OK.

Visited here 3 times whilst up in the area for a weeks holiday. Great place for family dining and option of both buffet or a la carte. Our 17 month old ate for free and she loved the buffet as well as the general atmosphere. We went for the a la carte menu and whether pizza, pasta, chicken or seafood,... More

Went there on a Friday night. Make sure you book beforehand. It's a busy place. Good wholesome food. The 14inch calzoni is a bit of a beast. Lovely pizzas as well. Good value.

We visited the restaurant as part of a 50th birthday celebration. We opted to go for the buffet option and weren't disappointed - there was plenty of choice of pasta, salad and also pizzas. A substantial fill of good, tasty and filling food.

Reasonable prices for the quality of food. We came here 3 nights in total in our weeks stay. Had the buffet one night... More

We chose this restaurant because two of our party had eaten here 12 years before while spending a week in Aviemore. Our party of seven included persons from 16 to 73 years of age. The restaurant was clean and inviting. The ladies room was clean and well stocked. Most of our group chose the buffet for the variety. I had... More

Great variety of food, I always go for the buffet as there a selection of pizza, pasta and salads. Great selection of desserts too! Lovely place, great food & friendly helpful staff. I'd advise booking in advance though as it's always busy
