Good food, friendly staff.

We went here for buffet lunch with the kids (ages 3, 5 and 6). Buffet is pasta, pizza, rice, salad mainly but very good food. Lots to choose from and the pizzas are excellent. Reasonable prices, would recommend for a family.

Having ate here many times over the years, the quality, service and wonderful surroundings have never changed. Good food, for a reasonable price, and the best Pizza in Aviemore.

My husband and I recently visited La Taverna and thoroughly enjoyed our meal. We both had 3 courses and it was reasonably priced too. Staff were attentive without being too attentive. Just right. Excellent menu, good portions. We both highly recommend this place. Good food good atmosphere.

Superb all-you-can-eat buffet with a great selection of pizza, pasta and puddings that can't be beaten. In holiday season it is advisable to book ahead as this restaurant is extremely popular! If I could get away with eating there every night I would! 'Nuff said!

If you're feeling peckish, the Italian buffet at La Taverna is excellent value for money and provides some great fresh food, including a fantastic salad selection, pasta and numerous pizzas. A great lunch venue and I will be sure to visit again next time around! *****

Lovely food and great value buffet with a varied selection of pizza, pasta and salad as well as desserts. Lovely a la carte menu also serving true Italian food. Family friendly and always busy. Nice staff and spotlessly clean too. Reasonably priced and good parking facilities too. Would highly recommend a visit

Good for value as there is on top of the menu an Italian buffet available. It is part of a complex and there is on the grounds self catering units and a caravan site. It has a considerable outside eating area when the weather permits. Service very good.

Very quick and friendly service. Nice atmosphere. Good pizza and carbonara. Will try buffet next time as it looked like a good selection as we were walking out and at £12.50 is excellent value.

Followed the recommendations on TripAdvisor and cross checked it with celiac friendly places and ended up here for lunch on our way to Inverness.

The one pasta we ordered was also excellent and the... More

Good place for a carry out pizza and reasonably priced. Staff very friendly. Just a pity that once home my friend did his best to cremate the food in an attempt to keep it warm, but, even cremated, it tasted very nice.
