“Lively and good value”
Reviewed 19 June 2014

Recommended to us by locals. Good hearty, meaty meals, but doesn't look quite a vegetarian's venue, however, two of our party had a good mushroom rissotto. service good and friendly.

“Not in restaurant only in downstairs bar”
Reviewed 17 June 2014

Had already eaten by the time we got here but kinda wished we had room for more. The plates looked very full and portion size had not been scrimped on, all plates returning to kitchen were empty!!!

The barmaid/barmen were all very nice and friendly (thanks for charging my phone at no extra cost)

Loved the choice of absolute vodka! I accepted my own challenge to try them all!!

Good atmosphere, will look forward to a return visit!

“Good no-nonsense food, with friendly service”
Reviewed 15 June 2014

We ate here on a Tuesday evening at about 6pm and were among the only people there, so it was very quiet. Having said that, it's easy to imagine that if it were full of people it would have a great atmosphere, with lots of things to look at and a warm wood interior. It seems to be geared towards skiers and other outdoors types. Being quiet, the service was quick and attentive, as well as very friendly. The food was ok - not brilliant, but then this place is not trying to do Haut-cuisine... The chili burger comes in either 6oz or 12oz (I had the 6oz), and was acceptably good, although I don't think the burger was home made (I could be wrong about this). My dining companion had the vegetarian risotto, which she described as flavourful and filling. Both dishes were of good portion sizes. Overall Ski-ing Doo provided good, uncomplicated dining, at a cost of around £24 (including tip) for two main courses and 2 soft drinks.

“Great warm welcome, excellent food and drink!”
Reviewed 7 June 2014

Visited on a recommendation of a colleague, WOW! fantastic place. Staff very very welcoming and excellent service.

I was in a group of 5 and we all had different menu options. All totally happy and with a few rounds of drinks between us we sampled the bar below stairs too to boot. Loved it!

Would go back for sure the next time I am In Aviemore. IVe visited other establishments there before but this was well tucked away - don't be fooled its amazing.
