The restaurant and food was fabulous. Unique and very exciting. The accommodation however was very average. The rooms need upgrading to match the standard set in the dining room. Shower was small and had not been cleaned well. The bathroom in general was sub standard and ''tired'.

Biota is as it name suggests. Lots of natural and sustainable elements in play in food and dining environment. Had the 6 course summer digustation menu with the juice pairing. Very interesting juices. Dining experience was pleasantly relaxing, little delay in service and perfectly timed interval between each course. Would recommend this experience to those who plan to visit the... More

We went on 15th November, the day after our wedding, as it is one of my husband's and my all time favourite restaurants. We chose the 8 course degustation with matching wines - didn't disappoint. All the wines perfectly matched the dishes. We were initially dubious of the sherry style beverage but when taken with the urchin with carotene, it... More

Had an amazing afternoon of tapas (pork belly, wagyu burgers, something new with poultry and chickpeas, cheesey croquettes) and rose with many little extras thrown in by the restaurant host, followed by a 'to die for' plums with caramel ice cream. Charming waiters and waitresses, serene view over the duck pond, amazing company, fabulous weather with rays of late afternoon... More

At the last minute my husband and I decided to jump in the car and drive to Bowral and stay the night before continuing to Canberra the next day. I wrote to Biota at the last minute asking if they had availability for dinner and a room completely expecting it wouldn't be possible (either booked out, not able to stay... More

I have eaten at many restaurants around the world and found Biota to be one of the best. The restaurant, grounds and atmosphere were amazing but the show stopper for me was the food, all 8 courses. From the first entree to the entertainment of the final dessert dish was exceptional. Our waitress was outstanding, very friendly, informative and professional.... More

We had their tasting menu with matched wines & juices. The presentation and service were excellent all night. Each course was a delight in terms of flavour, texture and innovation. The kangaroo, oyster and hogget courses were perfect. The addition of fruit/vegetable juices was a touch of genius.The addition of buckwheat to the courses gave great cruch and added nuttiness...

The attention to detail, the flavour combinations, the wines & the service all work beautifully together. You come away appreciating what has been prepared for you by hand in that kitchen. It is expensive. It is so indulgent, it is worth staying overnight in the attached accommodation which is modern and tidy.
