The large choice of how we liked our fish cooked was amazing. Being in a party of nine with diverse views as to the best way to have fish and chips we were not disappointed in the delivery of satisfaction for everyone of us.

We attended a birthday luncheon at this restaurant and although the view was lovely, the food was pretty ordinary and the noise levels intolerable. We were seated in the level closest to the water, which was nice in that respect, the open window especially appreciated, however with no acoustics to muffle the noise, the plates and cutlery clanked on the hard tables and the sound bounced off the hard floors. It made even hearing one another difficult at times. It is so important to remember that people go out to BE with one another and relate, not just watch the other chew because it is too noisy to talk. Since I'm on a roll here, it might be added that there were several servers standing around doing nothing while patrons carried drinks from the bar and went looking for an extra fork, salt, etc. At one point, a server came and took one plate from the table leaving many others. You have to wonder....this place has super potential, it's just not being met.

I had the daunting task of planning a significant and large family birthday lunch that would please everyone. It had to be somewhere with a view, good air con and good affordable meals that included a salad/veg bar. The Lakes Resort Bistro ticked all of these boxes. :)
On top of all that the staff were helpful and positive, the atmosphere was modern, spacious and clean. There was also a vast lounge area with a view where we could all meet and have pre lunch drinks. The food was fantastic especially with the vegetable/salad bar. It all worked out beautifully and put everyone in a feel good mood.
Our only slight disappointment was that we requested a table with a view only to be positioned near the back wall. They justified it by saying that you could still see the lake. Thankfully everything else was so good that this was quickly forgotten by our guests. Do try to make an effort to find the lake side back door to take in the view and check out the activities on the lake.
Thank you to everyone at the Lakefront Bistro for helping to give my mother what she said was the best birthday of her life!

For a few weeks a few of our friends with children had been meeting for coffee and brunch once a week. During these few weeks we had very rude and inefficient staff who were never accommodating towards us. During our most recent visit management informed us that they did not appreciate small children in their facility (it was supposed to be a family friendly bistro). We were also informed by the head management that their facilities especially the floor is kept in an unhygienic manner and is not a place for any child to be in contact with. If a facility can openly admit to having such poor cleanliness procedures in place I would be terribly concerned with the state of the the food they serve and the accommodation they provide. I would warn anyone with children to avoid this restaurant as there are many lovely family friendly and hygienic restaurants in the local area!
