We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner at Bistro Dalby. The food and service was excellent. Modern Australian menu with plenty of choices and specials too. The atmosphere was relaxing as we could actually talk and hear each other. Great value. Lovely night, we will definitely return.

Janine was the most miserable waitstaff I have ever had. The food was good. But she was soooo miserable. I told the hotel staff - everyone else was amazing. Sarah in the restaurant did all the work while Janine (it isn’t spelt like that it’s Janeeine or similar ) was just soooo miserable. Very sad.

As regular visitors to Newcastle Novotel, we absolutely love the new menu. The food is fresh and of a high standard. Over 2 dinners we tried and shared quite a few options. All were really delicious. The Vegetarian Wellington and Chicken Mains were stand outs. The wine list is a good one too.

Meals were excellent. Most service was first rate, but sometimes staff rushed plates/empty glasses off the table.

Arrived for lunch last Saturday, after checking out the web page, where the main menu looked good but was offered a small snack type menu, I asked if a any main meal from the dinner menu was available but No, I asked about the fish and chips and requested could the fish be grilled, but No, very poor for an Accor establishment, will not be back! The limited menu should be on the site.

A beautiful spot, decent menu and fresh delicious food. Service was great! Only let down was an underwhelming “smashed potato” on the plate with my market fish, definitely could have been left off because the rest of the dish was immaculate. The barramundi was cooked to perfection. I’ll definitely be back.

This is not the restaurant I remembered. The menu was very limited and basically pub food. I was hoping to shout my friend a lovely lunch for his birthday but he ended up with a Club Sandwich and I had a Burger. Very uninspiring.
