We used to go here a lot and somehow forgot about it recently. Very busy but lovely friendly staff and very reasonably priced food. This is not top end .....but good well priced and presented food. Worth a visit before the movies or a show.

Had the worst meal ever here. Service was poor. Both orders of Corn fritters were burnt and had to be sent back. Replacements were only luke warm, thick and gluggy with corn very sparsely evident throughout. The bacon was greasy and burnt also. The whole meal was not edible. Nil value for cost of $23 each. We dine out a... More

We ordered sweet corn fritters, you can't go wrong with those or so I thought! First serving was burnt -one side worse than the other which was placed that side down! So they were sent back. Second serving was lukewarm and gluggy. They were thick and tasteless with only a few corn kernels inside. I have to point out that... More

Our choice for a birthday brunch - the menu caters for adults, there is a special children's menu and a fixed price menu. All meals were tasty and well presented and the staff are friendly and helpful. We look forward to returning.

It had been a while since visiting Flavor Bistro, so it was interesting to find a new menu. My wife had the Moroccan Salad, and I had the Lamb Shank Pie, both of which were excellent. Service was attentive and cheerful.All in all, a good experience worth repeating.

Popped in for a coffee on our way to the movies today. We got Americanos. The coffee was terrible. Neither of us got past 1/4 of the coffee. Left me with a bad taste in my mouth. Won't be returning.

Popped in for coffee, a long black shouldn't be that hard to make. Apparently it is. Lovely polite service, crap coffee.

The service was crap and food average. We seated ourselves and took menus. Had to go to the counter to find out if they took our order or we had to order at the counter. The food was eatable and came out in a timely manner. Definitely don't intend on going back there anytime soon.

If you want ambiance, great food, best service at a great price then this Cafe comes highly recommended. It's a Bistro Cafe so the food selection is par excellent and did I mention the friendly staff! A great place in the heart of the PN CBD.

We came here as a group of friends for dinner, of the six of us that ordered only 2 were able to get the meal of their choice. They ran out of 3 of 4 main options for dinner :( one friend wanted to change a light meal to add meat (as she was unable to get her main choice)... More
