We were celebrating my husband's birthday and opted for the 5 course degustation on a Thursday BYO night. Each course was a fantastic merging of flavours, texture and presentation.The smoked roe-storm clam-charcoal-sea lettuce was delicious and unique. The lamb breast-dried lactose-fresh and cooked oats our favourite. The lamb was so delicious we ignored the fatty extravagance. The "duck parts" dish... More

The ambience, the staff wonderful. The wine list extensive, I reserve my comments on the food. All well presented just a little too creative for my tastes. Overall our group enjoyed the experience.

The day was a bit grey and the trip down the Hume less than inspiring but that all faded away as we sat down to the Biota dining experience. Friendly and accommodating service that was not overbearing or snobbish ( one of pet hates) led to a lunch that provided visual, tactile and taste temptations to which we soon willingly... More

On the spur of the moment, hubby and I dropped in here to have a few drinks and dinner and decided to stay overnight, and so glad we did. We sat for a while in the bar lounge area next to the open fire and enjoyed a few cocktails before dinner. We had the degustation menu (mine was a veg... More

My wife and I have spent a lot of time in Bowral and the Southern Highlands over the years and we are delighted to have found this gem. Rather than opt for the 3 or 5 course degustation menu, we decided to sample our way through the excellent lounge / bar menu (http://www.biotadining.com/menus). The excellent food comes from the same... More

Was looking forward to a nice bottle of wine and a few nibbles. All we encountered was poor service and mosquitoes from their pond.

My husband and I had a Christmas Gift Voucher from our son to dine at Biota. We invited two friends to accompany us to dinner. The result was embarrassing as the cost far exceeded all our expectations. Although the atmosphere was cozy and the food tasty, there definitely was not enough on our plates. We all decided it was not... More

Went to biota on 23 august for dinner. The ambience was fine. The deco was of a minimalist approach, at times the noise level got intensified given its open plan and concrete structure, especially when they used the coffee machine.....not much choices on the menu selection, either 3,5 or 7 course menu. 5&7 course menu is fixed and can't be...

This was not my first time to biota and I was extremely impressed, once more, upon entering the grounds of the restaurant - now officially equipped with rooms! I will not say at all that I was disappointed, however my first experience a couple of years back - is still by far the best. This is not to take away... More
