The setting is beautiful and the staff were welcoming. But I would never go back. I was really disappointed with the 'roasted vegetables' wrap which they kindly let me substitute goats cheese for avacado. The chef decided to add mayo to it without informing me ( I guess he thought he knew best that it could taste dry) 2 slices... More

This was not our first time of visiting and it seems this place is back on form. The black pudding starter was great. I have to say the fish and chip were enjoyed by all. Only one of us had a pudding and it was nicely presented ( I felt it was a little pricey for what it was but... More

We went as a party of 21 for Sunday Lunch to celebrate my mums birthday, even though the restaurant was really busy the service was exceptional and the food was fantastic. The menu choice was varied although most of us went for the traditional sunday lunch which... More

Went here as a party of 11 for a birthday celebration and was very disappointed with both the food and service. I have been here many times in the past and have always enjoyed the food, however on this occasion it fell short of the mark. Four of us chose the steak and mushroom pie and the steak was burnt...

My fiancé & I visited Whinstone View Bistro for a mid week lunch. We couldn't believe how popular the restaurant was as people flowed through the doors. The service was second to none and the food was very tasty! We could recommend the sharing dessert platter, scrumptious! The highlight was the Mahiki Coconut cocktail! Best ever! We will be coming...

I would highly recommend Whinstone view bistro to anyone wanting a perfect Sunday lunch, great service and a comfortable atmosphere. We ate at a busy time (12:30pm) on a Sunday and we received our food within a reasonable time. The staff were friendly and kind, even suggesting that we could bring our car up to the restaurant instead of walking... More

We booked into a lodge for a one night getaway and have just returned home. Both my wife and myself were treated to an excellent evening meal, superb service and a substantial breakfast. The Bistro has a wonderful ambiance and the staff, from those making our booking to those serving food, were friendly and helpful. The food was of the... More

Poor quality food and service at top restaurant prices. Very poor response from manager when given constructive criticism about problems with the majority of our large party's meals Please don't waste your money!
