We stopped in for a light bite on the way to Inverness. Aviemore is like a lot of places in Scotland still living in the 70's, most restaurants will serve until 2pm then you have to wait until the kitchen reopens at 5 pm. Papa Rock was still open so in we went. The food is not the best by... More

we had dinner here during our stay in Avimore. The food was great, the music was great and they had a good range of drinks! What more can you ask for.....Think more homely less chainy TGI! (better music too - if you like 80/90s music) My only warning is the portions were very big - but is that a negative?... More

This restaurant is the best family restaurant we've been to, relaxed but stimulating atmosphere, trying to explain what a LP was to a 9 year old ! Drum kits, motorcycles, walls of brilliant things, children are made to feel welcome and included by being given a pot of pens and papa rock colouring page that is displayed on the wall,... More

This is a family friendly restaurant. It has an old fashioned rock cafe feel and the staff are friendly and helpful. Like many of the restaurants in Aviemore, it caters well for people with food allergies, for example it has a separate gluten free section on the menu, other potential problem foods are highlighted and the staff are happy to...

Stopped on the way back from Aberdeen to Fort William with some jet lagged Aussies. The place doesn't look great from the outside but hunger and a decent menu dragged us in. The interior was a pleasant surprise with children's drawings a central feature, along with biking (motor type) memorabilia around the walls. Even though there were quite a few... More

We visited Papa Rock twice during our week stay in Aviemore. A superb menu selection even for veggies. A great atmosphere and the decor is like no where else! Definately worth a visit!

We visited this restaurant on our first and last evenings on holiday in Aviemore, on the recommendation of a friend. On arrival, staff quickly organised a high chair with helium balloon for our wee one, then brought over a colouring sheet and pencils to keep her occupied while we chose our food. The first night I had fish and chips... More

Stopped here for a meal. The first thing you see is the sign over the door "BE NICE or GO HOME" A friendly and relaxed atmosphere, Good size menu to choose from. Service was good and the food was excellent......you must try there puddings....irresistable. Reasonably priced.
