On a rainy day with less than an hour to kill we walked up the main street and everywhere we saw was full or closed, so we ended at Papa Rock. I must admit it looks a bit rough from the outside but it was a great surprise and I'm so glad we made it there. Great service,cool music,interesting decor... More

We visited on our first night in Aviemore. This looked like a 'safe' bet. Food was good, if somewhat unimaginative. Service was adequate. It is a good place if you have young children, but I wouldn't recommend it if you are looking for a quiet night out. The vinyl records and record covers on the walls are a great touch!

This restaurant has a really huge menu, all kind of food. The walls are full of posters, drawings, flags... So much to see. The children are warmly welcome to this restaurant.

On arrival, we could see it was very busy. (We knew this would be the case and had tried to book earlier in the day but nobody had answered the phone.) The gentleman who met us at the door (could have been the manager?) told us it was very busy and it's often better to book, although luckily there was... More

Papa Rock rocks! Like being in an American local eatery. Food was great and very good value for money. Extremely effecient and friendly waiting staff. If we go back to Aviemore it will be the first place we go to for a meal. Awesome!

Did not book turned up party 9 , nice place pleasant atmosphere.. Food good and especially liked gluten free part of menu, always nice to see consideration for special diets! Service good and reasonable priced, my only issue was we had to sit at two separate tables when it was evident that two tables could have been out together! Worth... More

We couldn't get in on our first visit as it was so busy so we came back the next day for breakfast. Had great food but the service the lovely waitress gave to us and our 1year old daughter was exceptionally good. My little one left with bubbles and a balloon and we were all happy after a super breakfast.
