The waiter was pleasant enough, but took a bit too long to take our order. It all went downhill from there. There was a some delay in receiving our food, for which the manager was good enough to apologise, but then our entrees arrived at the same time as our mains! My wife's garlic prawn entree was passable but not... More

We were staying at the adjacent motel so decided to have dinner at the "new bistro". The place was pretty well patronised on a Saturday night but we were made welcome and given nice seating in this very smart looking bistro. The staff were ultra gracious and most efficient and obliging, and the overall service on a fairly busy night... More

I ordered the fish n chips, the batter was too thick,(l wasn't asked wether l wanted Batter or Grilled or Burger) the salad was wilted, the chips ok, for $16.50 very over... More

The polenta chips were a bit soggy,but these were the only issues. Service was great especially as they were busy . Thanks Sheena ! The new decor is... More

The newly renovated area looks fresh but where we were seated was quite dark and it was difficult to read the menu. The service was so slow.. it was terrible.We had to wait at least 30 after receiving drinks before... More

Thanks 227suzie for your review and always disappointing not to meet guest expectations. The only thing I would say is that the new bistro had only been open for a very short time and all staff were only getting used to the operations of the new bistro and how we all worked within it. You mentioned that you frequented Amy's... More
