I chose to go to Roo's after finding out that my favorite restaurant was closed down. The menu is fairly comprehensive with something for everyone. A simple seating service when you arrive is given by a friendly and jolly staff member whom will take you to your seat, this is nice and there is menus offered after. I was given... More

Apparently an Aussie restaurant but lots of Mexican food on the menu. Ordered some quesadillas but they had twice the amount of onions you would ever want in it and I love onions! Made it very unpleasant. My partner enjoyed his burger however

After looking everywhere for some nice grub, we found this place to give it a go. Glad we did! Nice nachos and lovely burgers but would reconnect if having a burger to not have a starter - they are HUGE! Not badly priced either! Good friendly service also. :)

Booked a table and I'm glad we did, as many seemed to have to queue for a while. The service was friendly; efficient and very prompt. I can't say I enjoyed my burger that much however - it was very dry - either a cheap patty or had been cooked to death. Nice chips and decent portion. Nice pint. The... More

Called here whilst visiting Aviemore by train, as the restaurant is directly accessible from the mainline station it couldn't have been more convenient. Good quality fast food - we had a sandwich and a chilli dog and both were tasty and sensibly priced.

Very generous portions and food was full of flavour! Prices were very fair also, Cannot rate this place highly enough! A little gem and we will definitely be... More

Service was quick for drinks and starters had the deep fried onion and chicken wings to start both where good, we had a long wait for our main courses. I had ordered the slider of burgers the burgers we're under seasoned and almost felt and tasted like they had been reheated and or stored next to fish. My friends enjoyed... More
