Located adjacent to the Strathspey Railway Station, Roo's Leap Restaurant has table service by young people but we found them attentive and efficient. Food was high quality even at the burger level and there was plenty of it. Wine starts at around £17 a bottle and a meal for two with starter is going to cost between £40 and £50.... More

The restaurant is situated next to Aviemore train station, with windows overlooking the platform if you're so inclined...The lunchtime menu is varied in range and price, we ordered soup and the half-sized fish and chips, portion sizes were more than ample. Service was friendly and efficient and the food very tasty and well presented. The toilets were spotlessly clean and... More

The burgers are incredible and you get your money's worth - only downside is the chips, taste like they're frozen chips and there's a lot of them. Would be nice to substitute them or have the option of not having them instead. Staff were all friendly and the prices are decent!

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.
