I ate here with my daughter in April this year and would not return. My daughters kids meal looked ok but I didn't eat my chicken burger, it looked and tasted extremely processed. I also found the atmosphere very cold and unwelcoming. Would look elsewhere when next in aviemore.

We have eaten here several times now and have always had a great meal. The kids love it in here, especially as they can see the trains coming into the station! The staff are always really friendly and really good and accommodating with the kids. Food is excellent. Great atmosphere.

Having previously lived “down under”, I was looking forward to some authentic Australian food and beers. Unfortunately, despite a number of Aussie beers being on the drinks menu the staff member informed me “we don’t sell any Australian beers”. A casual perusal of the food menu was equally as baffling with only two “Australian” themed dishes. That said, the food was very good and you could not fault the efficiency of the staff or the atmosphere with plenty of Peter Lik photos on the walls which were a nice touch. Overall left the place feeling my hunger was satisfied and we had a reasonable time but I was left completely confused about the ability of an establishment to call itself Australian despite only selling three things which could be considered of that origin. One of those things was Fosters lager, which is brewed in Edinburgh and rarely found in Australia. 8/10 for the food, 2/10 for the Australian theme.

We have been here for dinner and lunch and enjoyed all the food we have had. We even got to watch the steam train going out from the station which was a bonus
