Apparently between 12.00 and 12.30 the only person on duty disappears because he needs a break so you can't get a drink or any poker machine service. The well meaning bouncer apologizes profusely. Not his fault but he shouldn't be put in this position. Late...More

Milanos Bistro offers spectacular bay views, delicious modern cuisine, fine wines and a superb selection of imported beers; it really is the perfect place to meet with family and friends. Our bistro is open 7 days a week for lunch and dinner, and now on Saturday and Sunday for breakfast at 8.30am. The room takes on a different facade for each event. Daylight fills the room with a bright contemporary ambiance, allowing diners to appreciate the relaxing vista created by the closeness of the bay. Evening guests enjoy a sophisticated atmosphere whilst watching the sunset slipping beneath the horizon. This fantastic venue invites you to come and enjoy the wonderful facilities it has to offer, including an outdoor beer garden and wheelchair access. Bistro bookings are essential.
