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!

Our second breakfast booking at Roos Leap. Such a lovely friendly service whilst remaining very Covid-safe. The food quality was amazing and we had endless filter coffee which was offered regularly. Really could not fault the whole experience.

We decided to go for Mexican. It wasn’t great. I didn’t see one jalapeño on a dish that was supposed to have them. Not much chicken either! Padded out with lots of salad. Very cheap to assemble and charged top dollar! Tbh it’s unlikely that we will go back. At best 7/10 was the rating from our group. Roos leap is a bit over rated!

Lovely lunch out with my Mum yesterday - we each opted for a burger (Mum opting for an Aussie and me a Dirty Spaniard) followed up with 2 scoops of ice cream each (pistachio and walnut caramel for Mum, white chocolate and Belgium caramel biscuit for me!).

Seen as I was having a day off driving, we chose to have some cocktails and what a selection Roos offers - Mum chose to have a wine cooler and pornstar martini and me a bramble and mojito.

Staff were very attentive throughout our visit

This was our first visit to Roo’s having heard great reviews about it. We ordered from the lunch menu but not all options had a description about what was included. We ordered a chicken burger which came with mushrooms and cheese but this wouldn’t have been asked for if the ingredients were known beforehand. Our children ordered from the children’s menu and we were astonished to find that our daughters burger was the size of an adults portion but we had to pay extra for chips which came with hers as standard. With that said the staff were very helpful and friendly.

Great cocktails and food but we made it clear on our online booking and when we arrived that we were in for drinks and nibbles only but we had several staff ask us every 5-10 minutes for the first hour what food we were ordering.
We ordered a plate of nachos to share about 8.50 which were yummy.
Staff need to back off a little!

Our party of 2 booked for lunch at Roos Leap, Montrose on 20/01/2022. Found staff to be very polite and attentive. Ordered Pulled Pork Sandwich and The Dirty Spaniard Burger from the main menu. Food delicious and cooked to perfection. Thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience and would not hesitate to recommend and return.

We had a business lunch at Roo's Leap with someone who hasn't been before so decided to them to Roo's as its the go to Restaurant in Montrose.

As always there were plenty of people in there and the atmosphere was good.

The service was decent but we were tucked away at the back so the waitress didn't always see when we were needing more drinks etc...

The food was tasty as always but the place has gotten way too expensive, I was £15.95 for a Thai Chicken Salad and i'm sure it was the same price for a chicken burger., the starters were all over the £7 mark also.

I would recommend taking a couple of quid off the main meals - You make enough on the drinks prices already....

We went for the fajitas Wednesday, which is nachos and fajitas for 2 for £20
Great value for money and a bonus for those not driving they have margaritas for £6.
Will definitely be back

Our table was not ready for us when we arrived so we had to wait 10 mins. Some of the menu wasn’t available and not a massive choice on the menu. There was an error with 1 of the orders.
The food was mediocre. The restaurant was not not as good as I remember it.
Staff were pleasant.

The noise level when we visited was beyond acceptable levels. Saying it was noisy would be an understatement. Made it very difficult to hear a word that the waiter was saying to me.
We very nearly left before taking our jackets off as it was also very busy. However we were put in a window seat out of the way and stayed.
Food was very good, finally mastered making chips!!

I know it's difficult times for all just now, but service could definitely be quicker, and their is no need for the noise levels to be so terrible.

No doubt we'll be back, as the food is always decent. A solid 4 stars.

Over the past 6 months, the standard of food has declined but the prices have increased. Would alway recommend but now I am not so sure I would. Limited selection on menu and very poor standard when received.

Our waiter was very helpful serving drinks in two lots as we arrived before family. He was also very helpful with the children waiting for them to order and listening carefully. The food was so good and the children ate everything (joey chicken burger and joey ribs). The steak Santa Fe Wrap, Dirty Spaniard and Mississippi burgers were very worth trying. Not filled after the above we had lovely sweets of pavlova, cheesecake and chocolate brownie with ice cream. It was a very enjoyable family visit.

Lovely meal
Noisy due to parties in adjacent area, not the fault of restaurant
It may be beneficial to cater for parties/large groups in separate area from couples/ small groups of friends wishing to chat.

Make sure you're hungry! Huge portions of absolutely delicious barbie food - excellent service and lovely setting. Highly recommend dirty Spaniard burger and haloumi fries. Main menu seemed expensive at £15 for burger and fries but it is so worth it and they'll happily give you a Box for anything you can't manage so you're almost getting 2 meals in one! Well definitely be back.
