I used to stay at the all seasons motel because it was close to the club but due to the increasing poor quality of food served in this bistro i have been forced to stay elsewhere. The quality and presentation of this so called food is of a very low standard. Bring back the buffet?

West Dubbo Bowling Club also known as Riverview Bistro. We have dined here before with good cheap meals at lunchtime. Today, we had Lamb Shanks with chips and salad. Unfortunately our meal was cold at certain parts of the meal. It came to the table very quickly after ordering. I was still getting drinks from the bar when it was... More

Very Friendly and helpful Staff - Meal was above average. Very good dining room with views, The gaming room needs a bit of a lift, too many old machines.

We enjoy the food here so much that we meet good friends here once a week for a relaxed, good value meal in a pleasant atmosphere. The view from the balcony is excellent.

As the title suggests the food was very quick to come out and it was reasonably busy, the food itself was nice and good serving sizes, including the kids menu. The view is spectacular which tops off a nice family dining out experience.

The aspect is nice over looking Dubbo but our meals were average. I ordered a chicken schnitzel with veg and while the chicken was reasonable in size, the vegies were scant. I won't go back... there's nothing these guys do that isn't done better somewhere else.

Thank you for your feedback, Our chicken snitzels are the same brand as most places serve here in Dubbo so it is a good standard size The vegetables we serve are all fresh, (we use no frozen vegetables here) and they consist of potatoes, greens of the season and normally carrots or an orange vegetable which can change daily.
