“Great pizza and pasta”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2014 via mobile

Just been for a buffet for 6 of us - 4 adults 2 kids - opted for the buffet - great choice of pizza and pasta and two bottles of house for about £90 for 6. Very attentive service and very nice thin crust pizza. Great for the family - do not miss if your coming to Aviemore.

“Great restaurant, great food, great people”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2014

Visited this restaurant with my family just after Christmas, have been here many times before and always visit when I am in Aviemore. Lovely food, atmosphere and service. Recently won an award for their pizza too. If you want to eat in Aviemore then you have to try this place before all others.

“A bit Dissapointed”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2014

Have eaten here many times before and my memory of it was that it was a bit more upmarket. Unfortunately the whole atmosphere was that of a Pizza Hut. We had booked a table but as the people who were currently using it had booked a taxi and it had not turned up, we were asked to sit in the bar. This would not normally be an issue, however the bar was a brightly lit area more reminiscent of a truckers cafe.
When we were finally shown to our table the plastic table cloth was soaking wet and my daughter pointed this out to the waiter, he glared at her and made no effort to wipe it. She ended up drying it herself with a paper tissue. Keen not to spoil the evening we decided to start a fresh and all ordered various dishes. The food was ok, but not as good as it had previously been. I would not return, it was too much of a dinner school atmosphere for me and yet the prices did not reflect this.
