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.

We have never been disappointed with the service and especially the food. Beautifully presented, cooked to perfection and worth every $ spent. Thanks again for a very pleasant evening out.

I recently booked a table for 11 at Mount Bistro having read reviews and been recommended by locals. I booked for 7pm and then had to change the booking as a mix up over theatre shows meant that our party had to be out by 7.15pm in order to get to the theatre. The staff were very obliging over the... More

This also was a Grab-One deal, but this in no way detracts from the quality of meals or standards of service experienced. In fact, we rather thought that the selection we tried was rather an excellent way to sample quite a wide range of the menu on offer. We were waited on by Sarah, who was very attentive and friendly... More

Have heard so much about this place and the SUPERB skills of the chef, but never been. Used the $89 GRAB ONE voucher and DEFINITELY the BEST food GRAB ONE we've ever done. Right from arrival EVERYTHING done so professionally, can see why it's so busy and why others rave. YES it may be expensive but in our case not... More

I had the pleasure of dinning there twice this week, first time I have been back for a while. Were part of a group of 4 on Sat night and then my partner and I took advantage of a grab one deal on Thursday night. All I can say is that it still must rate as one of the top... More
