Lamb salad and chicken cesar salad both delicious after a hard morning hiking. We also had room service and did enjoy the beef and chicken burgers but maybe could do with some condiments.

Slow cooked beef Vietnamese salad was actually rare beef Vietnamese salad. Aside from the fact my girlfriend hates raw meat it was actually pretty good. I had the burger but it was greasy as hell and the chips were crinkle cut oven bake type. So not ideal. But it is a bistro and it was the latest restaurant open in... More

Went here during the snowy ride. The place had a nice vibe. Food was slightly expensive but what can you expect: you're stuck in Thredbo. It was delicious though. They have a substantial selection of items and service was prompt.

Nothing special here but the location and the fact they are open every day of the year. Meals were typical pub fair and the prices were reasonable. Place your order at the kitchen, receive a vibrating device that goes 'off' when meals are ready and collect from the kitchen bar. Set your own table including cutlery. The bar had a... More
