“Very good food”
Reviewed October 19, 2013

We arrived in Ceduna on a Sunday afternoon in September and the lady at the town's visitors office recommended the bistro for dinner. But she said we should book due to the big crowds on Sunday nights. So we did. Our dinner was great. We had a half dozen oysters Chamberlin ($14) and two grilled King George Whiting fillets with salad bar ($24.95). It was entertaining ordering a bottle of red wine however. The young girl at the bar produced the bottle of Shiraz then gave me two chilled glasses. I asked if she had any unchilled glasses to which she replied yes, but she's have to charge me extra for them since they are for red wine. I reminded her that I purchased red wine. Oh, right. It was one of the few Aussie wines still corked with a cork, and it was obvious that she had never used a corkscrew in her life. A barman came to her rescue. No big deal. Quite funny really. After dinner I guided a young barman in the construction of a delicious Irish coffee.

We returned to the bistro in October on our return trip across the Nullarbor and again we had the oysters Chamberlin. Delicious. This time we had the Whiting, only crumbed instead of grilled. Also excellent. And this time another young bar girl successfully opened the Shiraz!

“Very happy”
Reviewed September 17, 2013

We had dinner and breakfast in the bistro. Can't complain about either meal especially given the remote location. Wouldn't hesitate to eat there again.

“value for money”
Reviewed July 20, 2013

a typical bistro in a hotel catering for the gambler. the evening meal and rinks represented reasonable quality and value for money; were delivered on a timely basis despite the bistro being well patronised and were well presented. recommended

“Delicious local sea food”

We enjoyed the local seafood – King George Whiting and Smokey Bay Oysters. The service is very efficient even on a busy Friday evening.

“Great Pub Food”
Reviewed April 18, 2013

I had two different dishes on consecutive nights. One was mandatory - the KG Whiting, which was as I expected - fantastic. I also had the creamy garlic prawns which was also great. Not cheap, but certainly worthe the money - good value for money!
