Fantastic food from a very cheap all you can eat buffet (£13) extremely friendly staff who were always watching to see when your plate was finished so you could go up and grab another. Beautiful interior and excellent atmosphere. Can't wait to visit again on our next holiday to Scotland

Came here with my wife and another couple, was pleasantly surprised at the gluten free options for my wife. Buffet was lovely and the place was packed, had a lovely time. Would have got 5 stars if they offered the gluten free options for the buffet too.

Brilliant place, always come here when we're in Aviemore. My son loves the buffet. Staff are wonderful. Make sure you book as it becomes very busy at high season.

Was staying at High Range Motel which is beside the restaurant. it is really busy and we had to book but it was worth waiting for. Food excellent and staff friendly. They do a buffet as well as a a la carte. Something to suit everyone.

We had a lovely experience on our last night of holiday here, the food was lovely and packed full of flavours. The buffet also looked delicious, 3 of our party had the food from the buffet and the rest of us the menu. The added bonus was kids under 3 eat free and have the choice of the buffet or... More

We sat near the bar because the restaurant was full and had no complaints about our seating. The food was excellent and the prices were very fair. I would love to go there again if we ever visit Aviemore again.

We enjoyed a fixed price "all you can eat" menu-excellent value for money, for delicious pizza, pasta and home made salads. The offer also included puddings-but we were too full to eat any! I would definitely advise booking as it is an extremely popular restaurant.

This long-standing restaurant never fails to please. The buffet is excellent value, however going a la carte lets you sample some excellent Italian cooking. A must visit in Aviemore!

This is a very busy Italian restaurant so book in advance to avoid being turned away. The staff are attentive and firendly. The food is superb and good value for money, they were also very patient with our little monsters

For a good, cheap, simple meal this place can't be beaten. The buffet spread is really good and is constantly being refreshed. If you had a late lunch - £8 for all you can eat - you definitely won't need dinner. Also you don't have the parking hassle of most other aviemore options. It absolutely isn't the place for a...
