I visted for a meal when I stayed in Aviemore during the Five Pistes cycle sportive. I ordered the Monster Burger, which was huge! It did not disapoint. It was tasty with lots of good ingredients. the service was good.

We chose this restaurant out of convenience, as it's right on the main street of Aviemore, reasonably priced and I found the Jamaican Jerk Chicken very appealing (yummy!). My husband was a bit disappointed with his beef burger, which fell apart whilst eating, and I would have liked a cocktail, which they didn't offer. Accommodating of our 8mth old baby... More

Myself and my boyfriend came here at the end of our holiday. My boyfriend got the enchiladas, rice was slightly overdone and soggy, but the chicken was still moist so overall he liked them. I got a sirloin and asked for it rare, came out well done. I really hate sending things back, but for £20 for a sirloin I... More

We really enjoyed our dinner here. If you like simple Burgers, Mexican or fancy a tipple it is perfect. Our waitress was efficient, service was quick and overall experience was enjoyable.

Have passed this many ties while skiing for the weekend. Always looks so busy and lively from the outside. Reminds me of an outback bar. Well not so. Poor imitation of many oz bars out there and definitely lacking life. Food is standard pub grub. Not overly great. Possibly good for families with kids that want the basics. Wouldn't take... More

We enjoyed the food, good atmosphere, had a burger and the salmon between us, plenty on the plate. Lovely pictures on the walls, reminded us of our various trips to Australia, apart from that and the name there wasn't much else that said Australia to us, no roo or croc burgers, no Men at work, Kylie or Jason playing. Still... More

Arrived on a busy evening and after a short wait managed to get table with my kids. Great service, the waitress was very helpful with the order especially as I have a fussy pre-teenager. When the food came. WOW! What great food the burgers are brilliant and the other ordered items were great as well. Clean plates all round. And... More

We visited the Roos Leap as a family group of 7 adults and 1 baby. I had mistakenly dismissed Roos Leap as being a bog standard burger bar so hadn't thought of it as a real contender for great food in Aviemore. That was up until last week - they changed my mind! Having dined in most of the restaurants... More
