Found this chipper after a long day trip from Insch to Kinlochleven. We were in the mood for a good, hearty feed and we certainly got one here! The food was good and the sit in part of the restaurant was nice. It was clean and spacious and the staff were polite and friendly. If passing through Aviemore this is a really good option without having to wait for ages!

Smiffy's is a very popular chip shop with lovely chips. A good alternative when you don't feel like a big meal in a restaurant. Quite a busy place which proves how good it is.

Confusing queuing system for takeaway and seated area. Filthy tables and floors in the seated area. Waited 30min for our order to arrive. Food okay but not great. Poor value for money. Advice would be to avoid

Perfect for hungry souls left starving after a seven-hour train journey. The speciality fish was haddock in breadcrumbs, and was lean and not greasy at all. It looked like everythig was cooked to order, which is annoying if yr in a rush, but great if you want a higher quality of food. Ultimately - it's a fish and chip shop.

It's simple enough if you want to takeaway; you queue, order, get food, leave. But if you want to sit down you're left to decide for yourself what to do. We first of all stood in the queue then thought it must just be for the takeaway so sat down presuming someone would take our order, they didn't. Not even one of the staff thought to direct us to the counter. So we then reasoned that you had to go to the takeaway counter to order which we did. The staff seemed harassed and one even swore when we tried to order though eventually we went back to our seats.
The food was quite expensive plus sauce was extra money (not like my local) and we got MASSIVE portions which really were unnecessary. Even for a takeaway the food was average and pretty dry, fish and chips was over £6 when (in my local!) it's usually £5. Not really somewhere I would recommend.
