Family celebrated our mother’s 99th birthday at Bistro Lago as we had previously for her 98th. The staff were excellent and the chef and kitchen staff completed the luncheon with a surprise delicate dessert for mum. Everyone included some patrons joined in wishing mum a happy birthday.

Enjoyed an excellent meal in comfortable and welcoming surroundings. The food and wine were of a high standard with the food and beverage staff similarly of a very high standard, all of whom added to the experience in a positive way.

Both my husband and myself used the linen serviettes on our laps over dinner and noticed that there was so much lint from the serviettes deposited onto my woollen black pants and Tony's navy jumper, that the clothing will need dry cleaning. The head waitress offered to get a clothing brush, but nothing happened. Disappointing.

Inattentive and very absent waiting staff, unable to explain duck menu properly. Terakihi was not fresh, smelled and was overcooked. And then they tried to charge me for the fish at the end of the meal! Very disappointing as often visit Bistro Lago and unsure if I will go back now.

Awesome food, I had the beef cheek and the duck I was in heaven eating it and didn’t want it too end. I have eaten at most all restaurants and this by far is the nicest food I’ve had along with good service. Thumbs up to you all at Bistro Lago

Waiter was not attentive, we requested one dish without the fried egg but sure enough it arrived with the fried egg. Our plates weren't cleared for atleast 15mins after finishing, we were not asked if we would like to order more drinks until the meal was nearly over and were sat off to the side even though window seats were available all night.

We had a superb lunch at Bistro Lago today. Ordered the 3 course Duck which is the special for October. We felt that we were on the tasting panel of the finals of Masterchef Australia. Staff were wonderful and welcoming and attentive. Have rebooked for another lunch in 2 weeks.
