We love Sofitel's restaurants and this one us another favourite. Friendly professional staff with a passion for customer service. The food is fantastic - fresh, well prepared, great presentation and a spread to die for. Really value for money, especially if you are an Accor Advantage Plus member.

Mains from steaks to lamb, pork, I chose fish of day, my husband the duck breast with Asian greens, my Barramundi, crispy skin, caviar on top and baked root veges, after... More

The best thing about this place is probably the staff as they are friendly and helpful without being annoying (you know the type, that seem to be perched right behind you the whole meal!). The food was tasty, I had the French Onion Soup and the Duck, my husband enjoyed the steak (beautifully cooked at medium) and the prawn entree.... More

This restaurant is part of the Sofitel where we had breakfast on 4 mornings. I would say it is typical of breakfast buffet at most 4/5 star hotels. Toasters always seem to be a problem getting the setting right. Raj is the consummate host. During our stay we enjoyed French cheese and wine in the restaurant. A must.

Booked Xmas day lunch at Sofitel after Jupiters Casino was booked out (even though I was staying there). Well, I was not disappointed. On arrival, we were offered free sparkling wine or beer. Turns out we were at the wrong restaurant, but they diverted us to Bistro 3 without any fuss. More welcome drinks were soon consumed. Once seated, and... More

Nice nice ambiance with wonderful/helpful staff, we almost had breakfast and evening cocktails poolside. They also accept Accor Plus but unfortunately not on Pool Side menu.
