Good Food

We could have picked a better time though as the buffet stops at 4 until 4:30 so there wasn't a lot of choice available, something to remember for next... read more

I could not wait to go home and look for this restaurant, I searched for it on trip advisor the minute I finished my dinner, yes at the table. I know that's unsociable and not the normal etiquette however this place's food is just that good! All you can eat buffet for £12.95 a head. The waiters will show you... More

We noticed this busy Italian as soon as we arrived in Aviemore and tried to get in that night but were told it was fully booked( wed night during half term) but we liked the look of it so booked for the Friday night. We all(2A2C) had the buffet as it looked good and was great value for money. Well... More

Been in La Taverna 7 or 8 times, sometimes eating off the buffet sometimes i have eaten off the menu...both are exceptional. I first eat in here in 1983, which should give you an idea of how good it is, sustainability through quality. I would recommend this place to everyone

we went here during our stay in aviemore. One of the best Italian restaurants I have ate in. Food was really good. Bruschetta was really tasty and the spaghetti was great. Service was good and will go back. Would recommend to anyone but I would book as it was too busy on the Saturday and we had to go back... More

We went here for pizza and pasta. It's in a lovely setting and just across from the river Spey. The staff were attentive and friendly and the prices are reasonable. Well worth a visit. It's right on the side of the main road just going into Aviemoe and is easy to cycle too, from the caravan sites.

The buffet option here is a good value choice. A good range of pizza and pasta dishes to suit all & a wide range of desert options. Service with a smile!
