My wife and I want here with our 3 month old baby and while the food was good and the waitress was excellent other more senior staff leave a lot to be desired. I was sorting my bill and asked the waitress to hold my baby and she duly obliged "Aviemore's Only family Restaurant " as it said outside. She... More

The staff were very welcoming, the food tasted very good and they were big portions. If you love good food then you need to go! The owners went out of their way to chat with us. For such a large and busy place this was a great bonus.

Having read all the good reviews on here we were really disappointed with our dinner. The waitress was really common and had lots of bad attitude and we felt rushed to order. I thought that maybe that was because it was a biker themed restaurant but even then I though she was boarder line being rude! I didn't think what... More

This has to be one of the best restaurants in Aviemore. The service is great and the food is excellent. We had our small dog and as it was hot we sat outside with her. They brought a bowl of water and some doggy biscuits for her while we enjoyed a lovely meal. They do a great 3 course meal... More

Friendly welcome as soon as we entered; separate areas for those without children, with children and bus parties. Brilliant menu, but the staff are the best asset of this resaurant.

I have visited this restaurant several times and it has always been a very pleasant experience. The staff are friendly and helpful, there is a good choice on the menu and the food I have tried each time has been excellent. The atmosphere is good as is the rock n roll theme. Don't know where the negative reviews come from.... More

Oh dear. The restaurant was not that busy on a Friday night (which should have been a warning) however we did give it a go. Upon arrival we noticed the signs everywhere saying that they only accepted cash (really?) which made me wonder if this was either due to a vast amount of credit card fraud in the area, or... More

Had a meal out there with a number of friends from a motorbike outing. The service was good, the staff were very friendly and only had one criticism out of the whole experience and that was they need to serve rice with the curry or make it obvious to patrons that rice is not included and has to be ordered...

What an interesting place, full of rock memorabilia and motorbikes. Spent the evening playing 'guess that tune' with my other half and sneakily chuckling at everyone trying to finish their food. I had a chicken lasagne which I must admit was disappointing - rather bland, I wished I had gone for a burger which was much better. Be prepared to... More
