The food was generally very tasty, the only complaint would be bones in the fish. However we were near the kitchen and could hear the staff complaining about having to cook food on the special they had advertised which was ironic when they advertised it. Further there was an hours delay before desert which was all cold items like ice... More

Food was excellent, however the waittress seems disintrested. We were seated in spot near a heater which was blowing on us. we asked to turn it off as it was redictulously hot or to be seated elsewhere. They turned it down only.

Great in every respect this being about our 5th dining experience here and it ranks tops in my book. Chef Barry has won awards for a number of his tasty dishes which is unsurprising. The service is efficient and friendly with an obvious effort going into training table etiquette. Try the "sword 'n saucery" as something flaming different! I'm happy... More

Chef's Barry's presentation and cooking skills are par excellence, albeit the prices slightly restrictive. A favourite with cruise ship passengers who land at the Mount through the summers the Mount Bistro is a must visit for the gourmet.

I went to the bistro the first time the other for dinner for my father's birthday. We got a last minute booking. Which was very kind of the owner. The food was really amazing, right proportions enough of everything on the plate. If I had a bigger stomach I would've eaten most of the menu. It all sounded wonderful. I'd... More

We live an hours drive away but last time we came here it was so good, I was happy to come again. Got a "Grab-one" voucher for a set menu three course dinner and I could ramble on but it was superb. Great service, well presented, well cooked, good portions, no long waits .... What to say? Well done Mount... More

What a fabulous experience. The staff are very attentive and professional. Food is delicious. Succulent meat. Flavours devine. Presentation was excellent. As for the desserts they are an experience to savour. Highly recommend this restaurant. I don't think the name 'mount bistro' does it justice. Very high class dining which we loved. Thanks team

Wonderul menu and quality food, served with flair and humour, Mount Bistro never disappoints. On this occasion it was extra good value as we had a grab one voucher.
