“A good Italian restaurant in Aviemore”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 4, 2013

We had such a good meal and fun experience at the Taverna on our last day in Aviemore that we were sorry that we didn't get there earlier in the week. All three pizzas that we had were excellent, as was the buffet that my daughter-in-law had. This is a great family place with good service and beautiful views.
A definite if you are in the area.

“The kids just love it!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 30, 2013

Had a couple of trips to the La Taverna in Aviemore whilst on holiday this year and it never fails to disappoint.

Love the fact the kids can get stuck in to the buffet as soon as they arrive, no more moans whilst they wait for their food. Don't charge for under 3's so other one eats for free too which is a bonus. Wife loves the salads and the pizza. They do the buffet thing well, although when busy, you can wait a little while, but make sure you time your visits well! Value for money is excellent and the service is top notch.

“Bello pasto , bel posto”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 21, 2013

We recently visited Aviemore for a three day break [ our third holiday here ] and had booked a table for dinner at La Taverna to celebrate our wedding anniversary . The restaurant itself is a beautiful log cabin- styled building with charming interior and exterior features , including wonderful views . Dinner consisted of buffet presentation pizza , pasta , salads and desserts , all of which were excellent and tasted divine . Our young son loved everything and the restaurant is perfect for families . The only slight detraction was the heat , but in mitigation the restaurant was very busy . Pre-booking highly recommended due to popularity . We will definitely return and I urge you to visit if you are planning a holiday here .
