There's not enough on the menu for vegetarians...and the vegetarian options are your boring stock standard crap. Totally flavorless and dry veggie burger. Totally flavorless and dry arancini. Pasta was well over cooked and mushy and the sauce...again....flavorless. the hear battered chips are yummy though and hubby loved the ribs. Which were HUGE!!! I haven't enjoyed a meal yet here but am willing to give it another try and order something different off the menu.

We wondered round the town looking for somewhere to eat and just got in at the last minute here, due to a helpful manager. we didn't realise places shut so early at 8 pm. Good food well served, got your own drinks from the bar if you wanted, so for Oz, it was quite good value.

DISGUSTING. We waited over an hour for our food and when it finally arrived it was tasteless, greasy and completely overpriced. I ordered a "grilled chicken satay" dish which turned out to be a greasy fried piece of chicken thigh hidden under a pathetic attempt at satay sauce- priced at $22.90. I would rather have dined at KFC or McDonalds and felt more satisfied for less than half the price. I will not return here and will be telling friends and family to avoid this bistro.

The bistro could be good except the food is poor and over priced. Nice atmosphere though.
