“Average food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 21, 2014

Average place and average food but you have to admit that there is not much competition... Can't really say that one wants to eat there many times.

“Bestwestern”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 20, 2014

We had a lovely stay at the Best Western. The restaurant at the hotel is very nice. The service was good and our meals were great value and very nice - steak and the fried haloumi crostini. We recommend staying here and would again.

“Overpriced pub grub”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 19, 2014

Sorry to have to say this but I have eaten here so regularly for the past 4 years it's a bit of a joke. But for the last couple of years the joke is all on me. Food at this place used to be awesome, and then about 18 months ago, new chef I think, new menu and food went down hill and they had the nerve to put the prices up! Three nights ago and the lamb cutlets, Greek or Moroccan, to be honest is can't remember and even if I did it wouldn't have made any difference. Ordinary, served with tomato purée/sauce, basic vegetables and a pricetag of $28. it's really annoying, if you want to sell ordinary food, fine, price it like ordinary food, but if you want to sell extraordinary food -- then serve it in a manner that makes it extraordinary and I will keep on paying for it, I don't mind! Until
these changes are in place I will eat at home. This place could be so much more if someone who ran it or owned it actually cared about the locals. Service: Bob is great, Sarah is cranky sometimes, but she knows her stuff, but the others are all rude and surly, except for the girl with the long hair that also works at the IGA, she is great too. Girl that served me the other night was horrible, rude surly, young and arrogant. Soured the nigh. Also don't think you will ever have a late night, kitchen closes between 7.30 - 8pm and they are totally inflexible, mind you they are the same with their closing times. Get out, get out, get out ..... Closing time

“wish we had read reviews”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 7, 2014

Ate at The Bistro Beachfront at Bicheno on Thursday at lunchtime. We were so disappointed. My husband had scallops which he said were fine. Son had Chicken Schnitzel which he said was somewhat burnt but Ok. My daughter in law and I had Atlantic Salmon which was extremely dry over cooked and tasteless. We paid a restaurant price for substandard food, what a disappointment. When I approached the Barman who had taken the order to let him know, he just said he would let the Chef know and did not attempt anything at all like good customer service, no offer to rectify the situation at all. Mind you reading other reviews I suspect they get quite a few complaints so they must be immune to the critisisms. We were left paying a lot of money for a few chips and a small salad. Would recommend eating somewhere else in Bicheno.

“delicious meal”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 6, 2014

The food was great, we both had roast of the day, it was terrific although it did take a long time to come out. They had a deal with a dessert which we declined but later we regretted it as the desserts looked divine.
