Visited on a quiet Friday night. Staff can be nice, depending which waitress you come into interaction with. Food itself was brought quickly after ordering (almost too quickly as if it had been sitting waiting or quickly reheated, I'm sure and hope this was not the case). To start I had the nachos, sadly these were not hot enough and... More

We called in here on a busy Friday night and staff were lovely! My husband got the chilli which he said was quite nice if a little watery, I got the half portion of fish and chips, the bigger part of the fish was still raw so couldn't eat it and the chips were quite greasy but think I would...

Upon recommendation we visited Roo's whilst staying in Aviemore for one night. The staff were friendly and accommodating. The young woman serving us offered to bring our children's food out asap if it was ready before ours. The kids portions were of a good size...the popcorn shrimp was a tasty dish and a very generous portion. It did seem as... More

We came across roo's leap while out for a romantic walk . We walked in shown to our table. Staff were very friendly and attentive. It can be expensive but when you get the food the portions are very big so you get what you paid for. I enjoyed my aussie style fish and chips and husband had tucked into... More

We're from the states and this is pretty comparable to a Red Robin environment and menu. Maybe with a little more love in the food. The Australian theme is really cute and the food is HARDY. Big portions! We ordered the onion bloom for 2 of us and it could easily be an appetizer for 6. I had the Dijon... More

Was in Aviemore with my girlfriend for a week away, on the first day after a full day of travelling we decided to stop in at the Roos leap, the size of the portions were more than big enough to satisfy our appetites and the staff were very welcoming and attentive to us, if your hungry and enjoy a decent...

You will be surprised with the menu and cost of meals. Great for families and offer half portions of their main meals for those not so hungry. Situated in the centre of Aviemore at the station, reasonably easy to park, well worth paying a visit. Staff polite and efficient.

Thank richard m
