4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW via mobile

2 friends and I ate here a few evenings ago. We had food to sit in and even though it was reasonably busy the food we ordered came quickly. The chicken breast bites were more than nuggets than anything but the veggie burger my friend had was very good. Staff were friendly and we would eat here again.

A large group of us, travelling back through Aviemore, organised to stop at Smiffy's for our tea. We phoned through our 54 different orders earlier in the day and then called when we were about 15 minutes away. The staff were brilliant and we were all served and eating in about 20 minutes - we really appreciated the smooth efficiency... More

Every time I am in Aviemore or nearby I make a point of stopping at Smiffy's. I have yet to find a haggis supper in Scotland to rival this one. On this occasion we were having it to takeaway but the cafe area is comfortable and well equipped to sit and take a few to enjoy the haggis properly. I... More

My wife and I stopped here for lunch. We were able to order quickly. However, it took 20 minutes for our food to be served. Fast food it is not !!! Food average !!

We visited this chip shop last night (01/08/16) for a take-away. Two adults & two children. It wasn't busy at all, we were the only take-away customers & only two sit in tables were occupied. A young blonde guy took our order. Perhaps it's a product of his youth but some confidence building wouldn't go amiss with this one. It... More

A great wee chippy with no frills. They offer food to go and food to eat on the premises. It is friendly and has delicious batter on its deep fried food. Also child friendly and offers sit in diners free sauce (tomato being a favourite with the grandchildren)

I found that the batter was soaked in burnt tasting oil and for the price I would have expected better. Ate in this restaurant a few years ago and it was better. I got the impression it may have changed ownership along with the quality.

This is the best fish and chips in aviemore, you must try the curry sauce. You can sit in or take away. Great value for money always busy and right in the middle of the town.
