“Our party enjoyed a very pleasant evening, again.”
Reviewed January 30, 2013

As our party live quite local we always tend to visit La Taverna as we know the food will be good, and staff very attentive. We have been many times and will certainly go again. It seems this is the place to eat whenever our family/friends come to stay.

“Reasonably priced food - pretty standard buffet.”
Reviewed January 28, 2013

We visited on a sat night when it was really busy and sat in the bar. Service was reasonably attentive considering how busy the staff were. We choose the buffet as we had our 6 week old with us and wanted to eat and get back to the hotel fairly quickly.

Buffet (12.95 each) had a good selection of salads which were nice and fresh and plenty of fresh pizza. There was a reasonable variety of different pizza toppings available and we found the bases very nice.

Nice desserts too.

Overall nothing outstanding but an easy and reasonable quality family dinner.

“Great staff and lovely food”
Reviewed January 28, 2013

We spent 3 evenings here during our weeks stay. We did the buffet and also the a la carte menu. The staff are solo friendly and helpful. The last night we were there it was extremely busy but they kept smiling and were so efficient. They cleared the tables very quickly and made sure the customers had what they needed.

“Fantastic!!!”
Reviewed January 23, 2013 via mobile

Our 2nd night staying across the Grampians from Aberdeen. Decided to eat here.
We arrived with our sleeping 9 week old at 1830 to a cheerful greeting. Seated and ordered wine.
We had focaccia for starters and ordered a pepperoni pizza and Il Pandrino pizza.
The service was attentive but not over the top.
The food was amazing. The starter was gorgeous.
The main courses came. We'd asked for the pizza to be sliced in case baby woke up. They were amazingly tasty. We were beaten and had to take a "doggy bag"!!!
Very nice meal. We will definitely come back!!

“A La Carte Menu is Good”
Reviewed January 22, 2013

The A La Carte Menu is good, thecoffee is good but the buffet was not that good. We arrived early for dinner/tea and the buffet was available for a good price. The children had this but complained that the pizzas were too hard as if they had been there, under lamps for a while. The pastas in the bain marie were only warm. I find this is always the case with food warmers. I chose my own pizza off the menu and it was good. Tasty and hot. The staff ànd service were good. It started to get more customers as we were leaving so maybe the buffet would be better at that time. The atmosphere was good. I would go there again as there aren't many places to eat around that area that are suitable for large families with small children. I would only order off the menu though.
