“Love the place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2013

We have been going to Bronte Road Bistro for several years. We probably go 3-4 times a year. The staff always remember us and are welcoming, friendly and helpful. The ambience is warm and happy. Cosy in side in winter and lovely in the little garden in summer. The food is always excellent. I must agree with a previous reviewer that the steak is ALWAYS fabulous but there are always good options including fish and vegetarian. While not too adventurous, the food is always lovely and fresh and pefectly cooked. We have taken many different friends their over the years and every one of them has made return visits.

“Lovely local bistro with friendly service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2013 via mobile

Food is consistently good here. Staff are friendly and welcoming especially the owners. Lovely to see them working in their own place. Looking forward to trying the new weekend brunch menu.

“Over priced food with arrogant service.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2013

A warm welcome at first, that turned into arrogance. A small innocuous complaint made and the male host rectified the issue but had a swipe anyway. Then continued with an attitude for the rest of the service.

In fairness, the starter was great but the main was just bland. I don't believe it's value for money, $18 dollars for a small portioned starter and $33 for a main. Additionally, the closeness to the other tables meant a romantic meal it was not.
Request for the bill took two attempts.

“Good food, good service, great neighbourhood bistro”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2013

We really like this place. The food is consistently good. I always have the steak frites and am never let down.

The salted caramel ice-cream is sensational and the cabbage salad was wonderful.

The staff are knowledgeable, friendly and interesting as well as interested in the food and wine they serve.

It's the sort of place that makes you wonder why you bother trying other places - just consistently good.
