Yummy

Great food, we ate outside because we didn't reserve but the weather was perfect! Wife had cod with a sauce on it that you would trouble not wanting to lick the plate. Ha Ha. My meal was also to die for.

The first time I had the traditional schnitzel with homemade mushroom sauce I was in heaven!!!! Their chocolate mousse is the best I have ever had! A gem of a restaurant in Sidney with a warm, friendly atmosphere. The staff are wonderful and service is quick!

Being in charge of restaurants while travelling with a group of 10 travellers can be intimidating. All in the group have high standards when it comes to dining and we were not disappointed. The schnitzel was excellent and according to one couple better than what they have had in Germany. The fondue was also very good. The staff were friendly... More

After a long journey and arriving in a strange town quite late, it was time to find somewhere to eat. We came across this restaurant, a party of five at 6.30 on a Sunday evening. The owner appears had a quick check, shuffle and we were accommodated. Next the menu, a taste of Switzerland and good value, the schnitzel was... More

We had just flown in from Germany and were met at the airport by a friend. It was early evening and she asked if we felt like dinner - yes! Where? Let's try the Bistro as it is always good and it was. We arrived about 6:00 pm and were greeted immediately and taken to a table and made comfortable.... More

We came here for lunch with a reservation. It took a long time for our waitress to take our order, we thought we had been forgotten. This happened again when my husband wanted dessert and once more for the bill. Definitely not the same standard of service as at previous visits. The food was good although not as good as... More

Thank you for your visit and we appreciate your honest feedback. First of all, we are sorry that you had this disappointing experience. However, we will do our best to address our weaknesses. It's not completely wrong that we had some changes with our staff as well at the front as in the kitchen. As much as we train them... More

Really nice little restaurant on the main street through Sidney. They offer a variety of different schnitzels, and lots of other things and our visit and food was terrific! Nice portions and everything was very good. Service was excellent too, and although we sat outside (on the sidewalk area) they were very attentive. Fun to eat out there and watch... More

My husband and I came for lunch on the may long weekend. We were promptly seated by a lovely lady, all the staff were very friendly and helpful with people like us who were unfamiliar with the menu items. You cant go wrong with the cutlet and caesar salad, and if you are lucky enough to be there on a... More

I am automatically attracted to any place with Bistro in its name, and a European influence. And so, we ate both lunch and dinner here on the same day during a 24-hour visit to Sydney (determined by the ferry schedule). Some things were glorious, others, a little odd or inconsistent. So, four stars is a foregone conclusion, neither ordinary (three... More
