Despite saying I wouldn't go back, unfortunately I did. This time in the absence of the pizza chef, even that was inedible, the fat from the gristle and bacon rind soaking into the crust. And only cheap wine to try to wash it down

I have lost count of the number of chefs employed here over the last 7 years, Each one wants to put his/her mark on the place and upgrade the food, It never happens though, Perhaps management won't spend the money? The menu is average, the wine list abysmal, the very pleasant staff turn over rapidly, Think basic pub food done... More

The worst dining experience 5 adults have ever experienced. Oysters Kilpatrick had burnt bacon and what tasted like plum sauce out of a bottle. It seemed as though they were microwaved. For $32 we weren't impressed! Soup was not hot and served with cold, burnt bread cooked on the grill and was served with a fork. Meatlovers pizza was garnished... More

45 minutes wait for a cold roast pork dinner that was chewier than my boots, epitomises what you can expect from this bistro. Simply find another restaurant when you visit Maleny!! Would I go back - not unless the staff and management of the hotel change.

This is the worst meal i have had the misfortune to be served, the fish tasted like dirty river. I managed to choke down one mouthful before deciding to pop to the woolies next doors and get some crackers. My partners steak tasted rancid and the bacon was off colour, the salad was more like a mis-mash of garden clippings.... More

My wife and I had dinner tonight in the bistro - fish and chips and butter chicken. It was the best butter chicken that I can ever recall having and the fish was great too. The chef apparently used to run the Indian restaurant in town - everybody seemed to enjoy their meal. The staff wee all friendly, chatty and... More

We called in for lunch. Its a bit dingy inside but the restaurant looked OK. Ordered Fish & Chips - not a difficult dish - but it came without condiments so I asked for salt and vinegar; the salt arrived but a small capsule of vinegar would cost me another 3 dollars!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Haven't been back since.

Please be aware, this rating is based on the chef's food - not the actual hotel or service staff. There are plenty of negatives with this place but the food is its savior. I am not exaggerating when I say this chef is like a 5 star gourmet chef who somehow found himself in a Maleny pub. We ate here... More
