The first time we ate here, was because our first choice of restaurant was fully booked (it was our first night in Aviemore, a Saturday!). I wasn't keen on the restaurant from the outside, and the 20 minute wait for a table didn't ease this, but, you really shouldn't just this place by the look of it. Yes, it was... More

This location had a great range of choices to suit both adults and children. The quality of the food and friendliness of the staff make this an excellent choice for dinner if you are ever in the Aviemore area.

A few years ago we visited Roo's Leap with our 2 sons. On this visit to Aviemore we were meeting my sister and brother in law. Thought we would go here for our dinner. Glad we did.

Food was ok, nothing Australian on the menu or didn't appear to be Australian. Standard pub grub, burgers, pasta, Mexican food. Service was excellent and good selection of drinks.

A bit more basic food than I had expected, I don't know why. It's like decent pub food, nothing amazing, but reasonably priced. I enjoyed my burger and we tried one of their blooming onions - oh my they're huge! It was way too much between two and we probably only had about a quarter of it. Haha, oops.

If I was rating this establishment on food alone it would be average. Nothing special but ok, however I feel the service made our experience very good. The young staff team were friendly and efficient and the restaurant itself was warm and welcoming. Would return if in the area.
