Having been to Biota and had the most wonderful dinner there, we took our son and daughter in law for his 40th birthday, knowing how much he would enjoy it. Unfortunately, the staff did not tell me when I booked that they had a large...More

We arrive for late brunch/early lunch this fine Monday. The place is still preparing for the throng. The waiter is personable and efficient, albeit a strange, subtle discomfort with our party of 7, including 2 littlelies. Perhaps we don’t fit the white linen Bowral demographic....More
