“Enjoyable family meal”
Reviewed 19 July 2014

Lovely meal with good service from staff. Kids menu has a decent choice and the main menu ranges from gourmet burgers, steaks, mixed specialities and mexican. Small choice of desserts and the chocolate brownie was delicious. Good choice for a relaxed family meal.
Might be a tip to book table as can be busy at peak times.

“Not impressed”
Reviewed 9 July 2014

Not very Australian, and not impressed by menu so settled for drinks only. Service was Ok. I understand the problems of being located on a railway station, but the big 'Toilets for customers only' notices do nothing for my expectations of a friendly welcome.

“Very disappointed”
Reviewed 8 July 2014 via mobile

My husband and I dined here when staying in Aviemore and we were disappointed in the meal. For the price we paid the dinner was not much to speak of and there wasn't much that I would call Australian cuisine on the menu.
The location is quite nice, the restaurant over looks the train station which is quite unique. The staff were all friendly and the service was very quick.
Improvements could be made in the menu and pricing.
