Dropped in for dinner on a Saturday. This restaurant was really busy compared to other restaurants we'd looked in & walked past. Despite being busy the staff found us a table & were quick to provide menus & advise of special offers. We both opted for the "all you can eat" buffet & 0.5l carafe of house red. There's a... More

This is a wonderful restaurant. Staff are friendly and relaxed, food is excellent and really reasonably priced. My three sons loved the evening buffet so much we ate here almost every night on holiday and we will be returning again soon. Highly recommended.

Light bright lively pizza/pasta restaurant with an Italian feel. Simple menu or buffet options. Good range of drinks. Friendly staff who were fun but were very busy as this restaurant is always full.

We visited this restaurant for our evening meal. The staff were very friendly and helpful, we chose the Buffet Menu and the food was very good, while the prices are also very good.

My partner and I were made to feel very welcome for our meal here. We ate from the a-la-carte menu which had a great choice of various Italian dishes. The staff were very friendly and attentive despite being very busy. The meal was decently priced too. Will be back here if we return to Aviemore.

It's not bad value but you would probably be better ordering off the a la carte or going elsewhere for the money in my opinion

Great food, reasonable priced, great for hungry rugby boys or a dinner for 2. Staff are very polite. We always have the buffet as it is such good value for money

£12.95 for a fantastic buffet - hot, fresh and an excellent selection. Good drinks selection and very reasonably priced. The kids menu was good value and one of our party ordered the special White Lady pizza which was delicious. We would definitely recommend to families, a lovely atmosphere and friendly service.

Stumbled across this place whilst in Aviemore. Visited it twice that week because it was the family place of choice. We loved the atmosphere and the delicious food. Opted for the buffet on both occasions as it was terrific value and good variety. Staff were very helpful and the venue itself is spotless. Would highly recommend

Thank Kenny S
