Love having our meals here. Food is delicious and staff are fantastic. They find ways to cope with our various dietary requirements in a friendly and helpful manner. Honey is a saint with her patience and friendly banter. Highly recommend this restaurant to everyone.

Loved eating on the terrace (but the trains are noisy). Excellent scallops, pork belly and lamb shanks. Unfortunately the sticky pear dessert let things down a bit as it was dry, and the ice cream was icy like it had been rolled and refrozen. Smallish wine list, but some excellent calibre wines on it.

We thought that the food was exceptionally delicious. My husband's steak was cooked EXACTLY the way he asked for it. Thai beef salad was so delicious and just the right size . We would definitely come again.

Overall, not a bad experience. The manager made my son feel special, so that was a nice gesture.

The weight staff were very friendly, professional and didnt constantly bother us which is great when your having a family dinner. The view of the bridge and river on the outside balcony was really nice and they put the outside heaters on for us too. It Wasnt busy which was great as we took our 7 month old with us and she didnt annoy anyone :) we asked for a banana for her and they brought us out 2 with no problems at all which was lovely. I dont think they charged us for them either which was nice. 3 of us had The slow cooked pork belly which was AMAZING! Downside was that it was very a very small main meal so you would definitly wasnt sides with it and at a regular price of 30 + sides at $6 each it seemed pricey.. we had a vegetarian with us and there was options for her which she enjoyed. We had the baked cheesecake for dessert which was also very very yummy and j would go back just to have that again. All in all a great experience and meal. And with the first table discount was a excellent outing. Will be booking again and would recommend it to others. Thanks IBistro :)

Breakfast - good except scrambled eggs undercooked Dinners - awful. Entrees and mains way overcooked - risotto was like a rice biscuit! Accommodation is good but next time (2 weeks) will be planning to eat out. PS: enjoyed the desserts. The dinner menu is not value for money and it was hard to find a table. Carried meals to room rather than go outside in the weather although some hardy souls did.
