I had the osso bucco last night which was lukewarm and lacked flavour, it needed a sauce or something to add more flavour, but as I was with colleagues I did not want to complain. Frankly for $36.00 with a few roasted carrots bits and...More

This #1 rated restaurant lived up to the hype. My friend claimed it was the best lamb she's ever tasted "and I'm a wog" (her words) Good standard for the country. Will definitely return.

Very welcoming and friendly staff. Delicious food. I am very impressed with the way the waitress gave us choices with our vegetarian request and accommodated our needs. I would highly recommend it and would love to dine in again😀😀

What a cracking little place this is, a gem in the otherwise sleepy nightlife of the largest town in the Southern Highlands. It has the feeling of a family-run restaurant with mother and son slaving over the pots and pans out back. Al dente pastas...More

In Bowral it is hard to choose between the reliable Onesta and anything else. The menu is extensive and the wine list is good with good choices of local wines as well and other offerings.

Wonderful meal. Heaps of dishes to choose from. We both loved our 2 courses and the wine was lively too. Staff were very attentive, knowledgeable and friendly.

Depends on their ages and behaviour. I would say young children 3-6 who will not run around should be okay. Maybe check with restaurant if they will accommodate you. But evening patrons may not appreciate children. Lunch... More
