Decided to eat here after most other places were closed on a Wednesday. Ordering the special, I had some upstart girl give me a difficult time on my order with no assistance other than "what type". So there's apparently 3 types of Chicken parmy's. Where I come from, a parmy is a fried schnitzel with tomato paste and melted cheese... More

Had a great chicken Parmmy and Carona lunch after climbing the Mountain. My companion an excellent medium rare steak. Both were served pretty fast considering it was packed to the rafters. Staff, though rushed off their feet, were smiling and friendly. Great views up the slopes. Outdoors is an open air seating and dining area which had a live singer... More

We got into town late and we needed something to eat quickly as we were pretty hungry. We had a steak and a burger and they were both really yummy. Steak perfectly cooked. We also had the local Kosciusko Beer which was very nice. Highly recommend for a pub meal and the service was really good

We ate here twice because other nearby restaurants were closed for private functions. The lasagne was adequate on the first night but next night the pork belly was a very small portion and nearly all fat with hardly any meat. Atmosphere was ok and staff was fine just the food very ordinary and not good value. $31 for a hardly... More

Very nice pub and village atmosphere. Pools available. Customer service is good. But food is very average for the price.

At the Thredbo Alpine Pub Bistro...!! Their 'Classic' Parma comes without ham or cheese - that is not a Parma that is a Chicken Schnitzel. It had to be sent back of course - after getting a 'this is what you ordered' comment and look. Came back with ham and cheese but was slightly overcooked - by that stage we... More

Whilst a couple in our group enjoyed their meals, overall we found it over-priced for what you got ($21 for a burger) and not that nice. The unfortunate thing is that there are not many options for lunchtime dining in Thredbo during summer, even over the Christmas period.
