Good menu options and good wine list Atmosphere a little bland and not that intimate but enjoyed the dining experience nevertheless

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

The food is very good. Quiet venue so you can have a conversation with your friends. Service was a bit slow, but staff very friendly.

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.

We met the new General Manager (Edmond Power) who couldn't have gone further out of his way to ensure we were welcomed & comfortable. Great experience. Food was superb too.

My only critique would be that the restaurant was not separate from the lobby/ reception of the hotel and as such it gave more of a feel of a lounge or bar. BUT the service and quality of the food more than made up for that.

Decked out beautifully for Valentine's Day. Attentive staff and food excellent for the most part. The duck and pork were really outstanding but we found the barramundi a little too salty (perhaps too heavy with the soy); though perfectly cooked. Desserts great as well. Excellent chips.

The staff were very accommodating. The potential areas for improvement were: it difficult to get anyone to answer the phone when booking the dinner; and it was difficult to get a carpark close to the venue on a Wednesday night.

Entree seemed kind of thrown together. Main was nice but steak very small. Pannacota was delicious, too much oats on crumble made it very difficult to eat all. Service was overall good, except we had quite a long wait for the dessert menu to be offered to us. The atmosphere wasn't very date like, more of a casual feel. Really need to consider upgrading to higher backed chairs, as it was hard to hear our conversation when leaning so far back on the chair. Still enjoyed our night but would most likely not return again.

As in-house guests, my wide and I decided to eat at Bistro Dalby on the first evening of a two night stay. Service from staff was great and they even accomodated a request to sit at a different table to what had been offered through our reservation...which was not set up for dinner. (We opted for a quieter out of the way spot). Staff attended to that request quickly and without fuss. Meals were well presented, cooked and flavoured. Wine selection was adequate and reasonably priced. Despite plenty of other nearby dining options, we chose to eat at the Bistro Dalby again the following night which should attest to the quality of the overall experience.
