Try the Rib eye and if you feel hungry, eat the triple selection of schnitzels (pork, veal and chicken). Good family atmosphere and friendly staff. Highly recommend this joint.

Big, late lunch means dinner equals dessert only - and the nice lady at Black Bear squeezed 3 of us in on a busy Good Friday night for house made waffle with choc honeycomb and honey, and choc ice cream, garnished with a strawberry.

This is a quaint little place in Thredbo. The food was interesting super delicious and very well presented. The ginger beer was fresh and a lovely alternative to beer, (not that is anything wrong with the drinks options). And the desert... Make sure you leave room for the tasty options.

We had a great dinner here. It was about the only place open on a Monday night, but the food was very good, the service efficient and it was very reasonably priced.

You have to book for a table with a view. It gets quite noisy in the front. The tables at the back are quieter and when it gets dark no view anyway. The food was very good and the service efficient and very friendly.

We had a square table which accommodated 11 people and could all talk and see each other. The view from the balcony was amazing and the feel of the whole restaurant was very... More

I went to Black Bear with my family twice last week (the first meal so was good we returned for a second!). The Angus steak was AMAZING and the red wine jus was a perfect accompaniment as were the buttered greens. YUM! The children's meals were generous, and delicious I was told, and the children were well looked after. The... More

Dropped in for a reasonably quick dinner with some friends who I was in town with for an event. We were after a reasonably quick meal, generous in size and tasty. I ordered the trio of schnitzels, consisting of three generously sized schnitzels - beef, pork and chicken. Underneath was a tasty potato salad but an only-ok sauerkraut. The schnitzels... More
