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!

Delicious food and lovely staff. We have been many times before. However we felt anxious about the Covid-19 measures that were in place. The restaurant is very busy and due to this there is no genuine attempt at social distancing. It is very difficult due to huge tables with 18 plus people sitting at them. No procedures in toilets, like a one at a time system, so they are crowded with no social distancing. I left a polite but honest review on trip advisor and the manager replied very rudely. He is obviously unprofessional and can’t take constructive criticism well. I shared my experience with the best of intentions to try to keep people safe during a global pandemic.

Great food as always, fantastic service. Did feel tables weren’t distanced enough under current conditions (covid) and music cant be heard due to the chat, may as well switch off.

We enjoyed a wonderful lunch at Roo’s with our family last week.

The food was absolutely delicious, so full of flavour and cooked to perfections.

All of the waiting staff were very friendly and attentive. Thanks to all for a great afternoon.

Positives - staff friendly, nice ambience, good to see the place busy durig these difficut times, lovely setting, clean toilets.

Negatives - although our order was taken promptly, we had to wait almost 40 mins before any food appeared. The food tasted fine but it was slightly overpriced compared to other places of a siimilar standard. Would have been better to have had less chips and instead, include a garnish eg salad / coeslaw. I had the 'piggy' burger. Although each compoent on the burger tasted fine, I would have prefered simply having the pulled pork on the bun (which tasted delicious) rather than the rather unusual burger and pulled pork combo. Overall, it was great to see so many people supporting the restaurant but it was pricey for what we ordered.

I was concerned about booking now restrictions have been lifted but did anyway. I have to say I was not happy with the restaurant’s set up. Tables closer than 2m with no screens. Staff wear masks and there is increased cleaning between diners but that is it. I appreciate some tables have been removed but still felt cramped. The restaurant is noisy which means people have to talk more loudly which is an increased risk of Covid spread. Menus have been removed but as you still need to handle the stand holding the menu QR codes I don’t really see the point. As usual staff were friendly and food was good. Not sure I’ll return until things are totally back to normal.

Food and staff were amazing!
There are plenty of veggie and vegan options which is a plus.
The restaurant was full but we were still a safe distance from other tables and it didn’t feel overcrowded at all

Lovely staff and food at Roos Leap however staff were cleaning tables and chairs with the same cloth
I think during this pandemic cleaning with disposable cloths would have been preferable

The only booking we could get was at 8.30 pm on Saturday 1st Aug. We had 2 adults and 3 children. We realise this is a challenging time but the staff were so lovely and took their time to clarify the orders. All food was delicious. Appreciated this place before but love it now. Thank you, Susan Molloy xx

Quite a few of the locals recommended Roo's Leap & I'm glad they did. I had the chargrilled Salmon and it was lovely. My son enjoyed his meal & ice cream.
Staff very attentive.
Near the beach too which was great, son had a play at the park after our meal.
Weal definitely be back the next time we're in Montrose.

The food was good, especially considering the additional precautions that are no doubt having to be taken in the kitchen. The staff were great as always, very attentive and friendly.

The downfall of the meal was how close we were to other diners, certainly within touching distance. There seemed to be no difference with visits prior to the pandemic, which didn't feel quite right.

Excellent meal with my friends on Friday night, very friendly staff and quick service! Considering the circumstances the atmosphere was very good and everyone was smiling which was good.
We then went out to beer garden which was amazing. Very friendly staff.
