The Down-Under Dining Experience!

Roo’s Leap Restaurant already has a great reputation… fresh ingredients cooked to order, and a friendly efficient service with a laid back Aussie attitude.Whether you’re looking for a great night out or you just can’t be bothered cooking, we’re sure we’ll have just what you’re looking for.

So what’s on the Menu? Well although we have an Aussie theme you’ll be pleased to know that Australians don’t typically eat Ostrich or Kangaroo… so neither do you! We have a fantastic international menu including our wonderful prime steak burgers, various warm sandwiches, steaks, salads, pasta dishes and, of course, our special “barbied” meat, chicken and fish dishes. We also have a number of vegetarian options. Our menu has over 50 dishes to choose from!

    I had specifically booked Roos Leep as we had our small dog with us and the reviews of the restaurant all said how it was dog friendly. However, when we arrived for dinner at 8pm, I was informed it was only dog friendly at lunchtime! One particular waitress went above and beyond to seat us outside with blankets, umbrella and amazing service. Had it not been for her, I doubt we would have stayed. Still gutted we couldn't feel the atmosphere of the restaurant but the food was good, with large portions.

    Not been to Roos Leap for couple years now, and won’t be back. Service was terrible. In for an hour before we got our meals. Had to chase our drinks order - 4 soft drinks & a lager- after 20 mins. Can’t fault the food, but very disappointed after this visit.

    Food was fresh, tasty and reasonably priced. Staffs are friend and accommodating. Restaurant is fantastic; you are also able to take your dog but book the table if your taking your furry family member as the restaurant has only 2-3 tables available. I highly recommend the restaurant. We will be back again to take family or friends.

    The eagerness to get their plates back is a growing annoyance in restaurants in recent times. My wife still had ½ her starter left and had a fork on her hand whilst taking a drink and the waitress asked if she was finished. 🤷🏼‍♂️. It seems to be a new trend throughout restaurants. Huge bugbear for us.

    Checked online menu before booking, left disappointed on arrival when told menu was different and what my wife enjoys was not on menu. Was told menu changes. Would be better to update website and not disappoint customers. Also table for 2 next to family group with children very noisy, would be better for family group to be separated from couples looking for quiet meal.

    We enjoyed a very nice meal last night with all 3 of us choosing burger options. The whole meal was lovely, we didn't feel rushed and we enjoyed the drumsticks which came with the bill! The wine we chose was very nice too. We will definitely be back when we're in the area!

    What a great place for all ages, great choice for all ages on menu and it’s the first time I’ve been asked if we had any dirty requirement or nut allergies great for anyone who has. Our server Ross was friendly and polite and couldn’t do enough for you. Our main meals were superb and the choux bun with vanilla bourbon ice and chocolate caramel sauce was to die for.

    Having been to Roos Leap many times over the years it really has become somewhat average. Once an outstanding quirky place it's just not the same. Very overpriced for what it is, 2 adults and 2 kids with soft drinks and ice cream puddings was just over £80, whereas a typical meal out for us would be around £50 in the same type of restaurant. A burger and chips is between £17 and £22 which is incredibly expensive, in my opinion. No real ambiance. The staff were great though, polite and friendly, a supervisor/manager training up another staff member was very patient and understanding with someone trying to learn. They were happy to add things in and remove items and asked about allergies which was great. I wouldn't have said my meal was exceptional, or worth the price however it was fairly tasty and hot. Three things that would have improved our food experience would be, the rice being on the side in the burrito meal, not in it. The Eton mess not being a sundae (it's not advertised as such, although I was forewarned), ice-cream could have been replaced with more cream and more meringue added, there was only a very small sprinkling of meringue on the top of the cream and no where else. It was essentially a raspberry sundae. The hot fudge sundae isn't hot, the fudge used to be hot and drizzled down the inside of the glass to pool at the bottom. You used to be able to feel the warmth through the glass as it cooled against the ice cream, now it's just dumped cold at the bottom. I'm not sure we will return despite being a customer when we visit Montrose for easily over a decade if not double that, mainly due to the price as the food isn't terrible. Kids were disappointed they didn't get a balloon this time. Nothing too bad that warranted a complaint at the time but it didn't blow me away like it used to, with the prices now, we won't be back. Staff were the only exceptional part of our visit.

    We visited last night with the family. The food was lovely. My only slight complaint is can you PLEASE serve children first? It’s only a little thing but when you have hungry children sitting very politely, you can understand they may not be so polite. The ambience is lovely but the noise is a bit loud but that is difficult when it is so full. This is always a friendly restaurant to be in and the staff work very hard to give you a very enjoyable experience. The choice of food is fantastic and it is always so good to have.

    Service was poor taking far too long for a solo diner. 2 hours and 20 minutes is excessive. A number of larger groups arrived after me and were finished before me. Excessive amounts of olives for starter and sweet potato fries with main. Burger quality was suspect. On the plus side, the cheesecake was awesome.
