“Great Meal, Great Service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 6, 2012

We have been traveling for over three weeks in Australia and New Zealand, and we have eaten well. Bistro 1284 is one of best meals we have had on this trip. They have been recognized for their lamb and beef dishes and that is what we ate. We were delighted with our food - delicious appetizers. everything perfectly prepared. The wine we had was excellent too and reasonably priced. Service was spot on. We would all eat here again.
