“Not quite amazing”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 11, 2013

Our family went to dine at Mr. Hive. We went there to find out about restaurants at Crown. We heard comments about Mr. Hive, some said great atmosphere, some said desserts were great etc.
We ordered Main courses and desserts.
First thing we noticed were those kitchen towels (exactly the type I used to wipe hands and table in my kitchen) for our serviette.
We ordered the food, we were warned its going to take a while. We said that was fine, only didn't realise it did take an hour for food to be served. There was no dinner rolls or anything while we waited, just tap water.
The food, all serving of main course were meagre, they tasted alright, not value for money.
The desserts were disappointing.

“Great Spot to Eat”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2013

Have to admit, I haven't had Dinner here but I love the all day menu in the bar area. The food is lovely and fresh and its the perfect spot for an afternoon beverage and nibbles.
Breakfast is amazing.

“Great service, great food, can't go wrong.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 1, 2013

I took my parents and grandparents to Mr Hive on the weekend, we were promptly shown a table and were presented with menus.

The waitress that looked after us was very attentive, polite and accommodating.

As there were 5 of us, we ordered about 11 dishes (probably half of the menu), we all had a sharing plate each.

Special mention to the King Salmon & Beef Wellington, they were the highlights of the dish.

Atmosphere in the restaurant feels very cosy, it is quite dark so it felt more of an intimate dinner, great ambience.

Will definitely go there again .

“Most amazing place for breakfast!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 31, 2013

We had the breakfast buffet at Mr Hive included as part of our accommodation package. This is the best breakfast buffet we have come across in Australia. There were so many options, all of which were amazing, and after 4 consecutive days of breakfast there i was amazed at the consistency and freshness of the food, the friendliness of the staff and the atmosphere and decor of the restaurant which is just lovely. From the hot food options (amazing scrambled eggs, eggs done in other ways, 2 different types of sausages, mushrooms, vegies, bacon and much much more) to something sweet (amazing hot cakes with a variety of toppings to choose from such as fresh berry mix) to the little enclosure dedicated to healthy eating (the most amazing bircher muesli i have ever sampled), fresh fruit salad, individual pieces of fruit, savoury and fruit muffines, a variety of cereals and milk, variety of juices, and then there was also that bit of extra options (smoked salmon, ham, salami other cured meats, a variety of cheeses, a variety of breads). This was a very exciting place to eat at. The coffees were also amazing and the staff very friendly. I would definitely want to dine there again. This place also does lunch and dinner however we were unable to go due to other plans. This place gets 10 out of 10 from us.
