We were celebrating our wedding anniversary and our family who are all overseas shouted us a restaurant meal. We chose iBistro and booked first time with First Table. On arrival we were told to find our own table and chose to sit outside on the balcony overlooking the river and bridge. After 20 mins and 3 requests for service we received an apology and were offered complimentary drinks to compensate. From then onwards our waitress looked after us and we enjoyed our three course meal. Highlight of our evening was a special dessert platter with ”Happy Anniversary” written around the edge of the plate compliments of the Chef. Thanks iBistro.

Having the 7s take over the restaurant made it a bit uncomfortable for other diners. Dinner was beautiful although potentially a bit small and overpriced.

Waitress’s were lovely and welcoming. One of our mains were missed which was fine, we would have appreciated communication from your staff by letting us know what was happening so that a member of our family didn’t have to sit awkward without knowing if it was on its way or not. I decided to go and find out myself and asked the waiter if her food was still coming, he walked past me and said “yeah it’s being plated up”‘ then carried on walking. Secondly, when the main was put on our table the plate was rushed, the meat was in pieces, presentation was 2/10 and looked completely exhausted from the exact same meal another one of my family members had ordered we obviously sent it back. I understand it’s a 50% deal but that does not mean standards in service and the quality of food drop. So in my experience if you would like your food missed and a sassy waiter this the spot

Very friendly staff, service was a little low. River view is peaceful. When leaving we found the alleyway back to Alma st needed more lighting

From the moment we walked into the ibis we were greeted more than once the staff were engaged and made you feel welcomed. We were given the choice to choose where we wanted to be seated which was nice. The premises is modern and clean. Reece was our waiter he was friendly and down to earth and he was very professional, and we enjoyed how prompt the service was. We would definitely recommend and return next time we would book the hotel and make a weekend of it.

Drinks were perfect, service was tentative and amazing. Food was a slight letdown from the amount of fat and gristle on the lamb, burger bun was crumbly and fell apart while eating it and could have done with seasoning the beef more. Overall decent experience!
