Child friendly, good value pasta and pizza buffet. The pasta off the menu is nicer then the buffet pasta. All the starters above average. Been twice this week. Very busy, so we booked.

A family favourite and our last visit did not disappoint. The buffet is still great value and the service is extremely efficient. Nice choice of Italian beers.

They had a very extensive buffet to eat all you like for a very reasonable price. We did not partake in the buffet, but ate... More

Have used Las Taverna several times and it continues to impress. Stopped with friends on drive from Boat of Garten to Dornoch for early evening meal after golf. We were glad we were early as restaurant already busy at 5 o'clock filled up rapidly. Two of us had "eat as much as you like pasta and pizza buffet and two... More

The place is quite noisy but good atmosphere and... More

About lunchtime we pulled off the A9, headed for Aviemore and there it was. A very pleasant stop with a good buffet and really nice people.Best impromptu stop for a long time.

This is a large busy restaurant so it is worthwhile booking a table if you wish to eat here. You can choose from the buffet (salad, pizza, pasta's and dessert) or from the main menu. Our party had a selection of both. The buffet was good for the younger ones as they could pick and choose what they wanted. However,... More

Always a pleasure to come here for lunch or dinner. The buffet is varied and well stocked pizzas, pastas and salads. The desserts are good and the staff are attentive.
