“Place has a lot to live up to after the legend that was Cafe Mambo”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 December 2013

But it doesn't really live up to it for us. Lunchtime food is fine, when it arrives, the place seems understaffed so takes ages to get served and it wasn't busy. Our son loves the hot chocolates, but he loves them wherever he gets one, so it doesn't really stand out from the crowd any more. We'll keep going though for now

“Grubby Super Panther”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 December 2013

Visited Super Panther this week, and was disappointed, the floor was really sticky,everywhere! probably due to a band playing the evening before and beer spilled on floor? Maybe the cleaner is on holiday this week!! But generally feels grubby and dirty which is a shame as nice surroundings and menu looked good, toilets very grotty and virtually opposite the kitchen! enough to make me eat else where, fine for coffee and free wifi. Friendly helpful and overworked staff, lets hope the management take heed of the reviews as could be a great place.

“Really really slow”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 November 2013 via mobile

We went in today just for a wee bit of lunch and a drink.
The place was nice and food was actually great ( after a long wait ) but the staff were not interested or a bit apologetic.
A real shame - could have been great.

“Unimpressed with service and food”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 November 2013 via mobile

Well! We waited and waited and waited. Watched other customers leave due to the wait and then completely unimpressed with what was provided. Service was provided by children with no supervision and completely unorganised. Watched one employee reduced to tears. The owner should be ashamed they "manage" this place. Prices were way too high for what was provided as well. Felt sorry for the kids

I can only apologise for your experience with us. The day you came in our staff did indeed struggle to cope. It was exceptionally busy and one of our bar staff hadn't turned up and neither had a chef. The manager (who ordinarily would have been running things in the restaurant) and owner unfortunately had to work in the kitchen to meet the demand leaving the floor short but in the very capable hands of three experienced waitress in their twenties - i guess they must look younger! This was an exceptional day and I am very sorry that you had to experience this and that we fell short as this is not normally the case.

In response to your comment on our pricing. We are comparably priced to all other restaurants in Aviemore and if you factor in the fact that unlike most others nothing we serve is bought in pre made (absolutely everything is made in house, locally sourced, and of the best quality we can find), then we real are quite cheap!

“Funky bar with wicked food, great music and friendly staff”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 November 2013

Despite what other reviewers might make of this bar, we spent 2 nights in a row at this place as we enjoyed it so much. TBH, for our tastes, age and personalities, Super Panther was the only place in Aviemore we felt suited.

The décor is modern, the menu has ALOT of choice and the staff very friendly and approachable. We were camping so needed to charge our phones etc and the staff were very accommodating and happy to help. The food arrived in good time and they were not shy on the portions!

This is not a place for everyone - its has a niche and those frequenting should bare that in mind when looking for somewhere to eat. It is probably aimed at the 18 - 35 age range past 8pm - it isn't a country pub with floral carpet and open fires!

We would go back there a 1000 times over!
