We hadn't planned to eat out much on our holiday but ended up coming here three times! The menu was excellent - in our group we had two people with allergies and one who doesn't eat carbs, and we were all happy with our choices, and they were happy to accommodate small changes to the menu. The half-portion fish and... More

Love Roo's leap. Visited here before when I was passing through Aviemore on my motorbike, so decided to take my wife when we were visiting Aviemore. On both occasions the staff have been extremely friendly. The restaurant itself is very clean and food is brilliant. This is the place I would consider eating at first if I am ever in... More

I often find myself just passing on the A9 around dinner time. I popped in one time as Aviemore doesn't have a Chinese restaurant which would be my first choice. The burgers at Roo's Leap are great, the service is with a smile and the price is quite fair too!

This is an usual review by myself and two children - they enjoyed it so much they wanted to comment! Firstly it's amazingly situation beside a railway and you can watch trains go by - kids' point of course! The decor is lovely and the service was excellent with cherry, helpful staff. The menu was incredible and we all loved... More

Dropped in for a late lunch, as we arrived for a short break. Great selection on the menu with a variety of soups, sandwiches and snacks. Fairly busy for mid-afternoon. Serves food all day. Single ladies toilet would be an issue at busy times.

We had a really enjoyable family meal at Roo's Leap. We had to wait about 30 minutes for a table but enjoyed a drink whilst we waited, once seated our order was taken quickly we then waited maybe another 20 minutes to be served but the food really was worth the wait. Freshly cooked to order and piping hot. We... More

This was our first visit to Roos Leap in Aviemore and it's every bit as good as the one in Montrose. A lovely clean place, friendly staff and very decently priced, we'll certainly stop in if we're up that way again.

Hadn't booked for dinner but the staff work really hard at turning tables so were seated within 10 minutes for dinner. Had the nachos to share to start. Very yummy. Mississippi burger and fajitas for main course - very tasty. Choc brownie for dessert- excellent! Really lovely friendly atmosphere and free wifi. Was exceptionally busy the whole evening we were...

We visited this as a family at the weekend. The service was excellent so much so the waitress was surprised when we asked her to leave a tip on the credit card machine. The onion blossom is a highlight as not to be missed. The chilli nachos are also amazing with huge portions. Children's menu has a big choice which... More
