We went here on a Friday night which and the entire hotel and bistro were very busy. We could see that the bistro was not entirely full so decided we would give it a go. After initially standing at the "please wait to be seated" sign for around five minutes while different staff walked past us seemingly unconcerned (and yes, did bring this to the attention of a 'drinks waiter' who told us to wait!?), we were finally shown to a table. I then had had to get up and fetch the menu's for my family myself (not a great start). This bistro redeemed itself once the food arrived. My kids meals were freshly prepared and proper meals (not like most restaurants where the kids meals are frozen dinners re-heated) which included a very tasty pasta with bolognaise sauce, freshly made pizza and a chicken schnitzel. Could not fault these! I had a very lovely and tender steak and my husband had kangaroo - so much kangaroo he could barely eat it all (I mean this in a positive too, most times these places tend to skimp on the meat). The salad bar was also equally tasty. Freshly made and some interesting and different salads (I particularly enjoyed the broccoli and cauliflower salad with mustard dressing). Despite the initial let down during our visit, this place is well worth a visit for casual dining.
