“Aviemore pit stop”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2014

Stopped of for a bite to eat. Not over impressed with the service or food. Two fish and chips one red pudding and chips. Just average restaurant was very quiet at the time and the staff seemed indifferent .Cup of tea was alright and the place was clean but again all very average.

“Best Haggis”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2014

This must be the best haggis one can taste. Both haggis and chips were freshly made and to die for. May need to wait as they seem to make everything fresh

“First class fish and chips.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2014

Followed recommendations and ventured to Smiffys for fish and chips. Freshly prepared to order and worth the wait. Huge portions, good value for money, clean restaurant. Heartily recommend.

“Excellent Lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2013

Stopped for lunch with another couple on the way to Carrbridge. Usually visit anytime we are in Aviemore.

Good selection on the menu.

Food served to our table quickly and piping hot.

Very enjoyable.

“Consistently very good.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2013

Have stopped at Smiffy's many times for Fish & Chips (it is Haddock). It has not failed us once. The service is efficient and the cooking is done to a very good standard. Sometimes the queues can be quite long (which is a good sign in some ways) but the standard does not drop. Sit-in or take-away - either side of the business is equally as good.
