I had to wait almost 20 mins for 2 fish suppers, 2 sausage suppers and a king rib. Unfortunately they forgot to put the king rib in the fryer, but more disappointingly, they didn't bother to tell me. I only knew because I overheard the staff talking about it and saw several customers that had been served after me walking... More

This was a good stop for a quick meal. Prices reasonable, just know that everything is ala cart and extra charge, including sauces and water. Decent place with outdoor seating looking around straight towards main Grampian road

Great fish and chips, but paper pates and plastic cutlery let it down. Service is good though and the quality of the fish is excellent.

Took 11 kids and 3 adults, Smiffy's seemed to cope well with the lot of them. No complaints from the kids, 1 slight moan from an adult. Staff seemed happy and helped out with the group a few times, toilets let the place down, looking a bit dirty and dated.

Forget your inner city chippies, or the chippy down the road, this is Smiffy's and their food is made in their own special way. Theyve won more awards than they can fit on the wall. Even though it is a bit pricey it could be much much worse. The days where you could get a bag of chips for £1... More

Expensive take away, underwhelming fish and chips. Nearly £22 for 2xfish supper and 2xkids fish bites. Not inedible but a lot of money for very mediocre food. Not the cheeriest of staff either! Won't be back

Expensive for sit in fish tea albeit nice piece of fish and good chips. We were charged nearly 20 pounds for two fish teas with a roll and cup of tea. Declined a small portion of mushy peas @ 1.25 pounds & sachet of tomato sauce at 25p each. Same thing in Nardinis Largs with bigger fish & mushy peas/sauce... More

We eat here regularly when we are staying in Aviemore and are always happy with the food. However one night we were down this week around 5-30 pm when it was a starting to pick up so I left my order and went across the road to Tesco for odds and ends. I came back fifteen minutes later to find... More

Right on the main street in Aviemore, and with pavement tables too for those warmer days, this is a nice place to pick up a fish supper. Service is good, food appears to be cooked to order (mine's was) so arrived piping hot and there's the option to sit-in, use the outdoor seats or take-home. Pricing a bit on the... More
