3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

With two grandchildren we enjoyed good food - each dish a very generous 'helping' with the Spinach & Cheese calzone even beating our 13 year old. Unfortunately our waitress did appear to be enthusiastic about her job - very 'matter of fact' and not at all customer friendly - a pity as the food was excellent.

We can't pass aviemore without popping in for a buffet and we are never disappointed! Staff are friendly, helpful and attentive and the food cannot be beaten! Wish you were closer!

I had the restaurants White Lady pizza - which was lovely - a bit much for one person as its very rich and gets a bit cloying after a while - I had the cheese sweats! The buffet looked very boring, but seemed popular.

Fun, busy, loads of choices and a great buffet - well worth going to but book ahead as usually pretty busy. Relatively cheap and cheerful, great pizza and pasta. Kids all you can eat buffet brilliant option as good choice of pasta and pizza for them to enjoy, all freshly made.

We turned up as a group of 10 and they had a table available for us without having to book (5.00 in the middle of August). Staff were very friendly and helpful, and teh service was very quick. We had the buffet which included salad, pasta, pizza and dessert. The buffet is free for 0-3yo, £4.95 for 4-9yo and £12.95... More

Travelling south looking for lunch and called into Aviemore and found this place.. Buffet lunch was laid out and the food look and tasted wonderful. But we struggled to get our drinks. Not sure why it took so long. It alos took along time when I wanted a second drink, it was that long we thought it had been forgotten.... More

Limited small town but this is a good place to eat! Plenty of choice and very relaxed. Food can be from OK to nice but after snowboarding is a good easy going place to go with nice food and eat plenty of it

We spent an evening there and had the buffet. It included salad, pasta, pizza and dessert. The pizza and dessert were very good. The rest was ok. Since you can eat as much as you want, it's a good option if you are very hungry. Booking a table is a must, since the restaurant was packed when we got there.

Turned up without booking but managed to get a table near bar so a but noisy. Service very good and friendly. Food fantastic. Only downside did feel a little bit rushed. Waiter kept coming back to try and take plates while some had nit finished. Would return though.
