“Great food and Service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 9, 2014

The menu is great, the good is really tasty and really well presented.

The service was great and we felt very welcome to stay and have a drink after our meal.

Highly recommended if you are staying in Thredbo

“Usually Great, but fell a little short last time”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 5, 2014

Black Bear Inn is one of our favourite places to go for a casual feed at Thredbo (though prices aren't casual but are inline with Thredbo pricing) and have had a number of great meals there. The last weekend before the Ski season started the menu seemed very stripped back, and meals not of the same quality as usual - Maybe temp chef? But we were understanding given that we knew the ski season was starting the following weekend..

The food was still pretty good overall (especially the salmon or trout) and the service and atmosphere is excellent so we will be back.

“Great Food and ambience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 6, 2014

We stayed in Black Bear Inn for New Year’s Eve. The location is excellent – central to everything in the village. It is an older style B&B with small rooms, which are clean, have mountain views and offer adequate comfort.
The restaurant is fantastic – we had our set menu New Year’s Eve dinner there, and all courses were delicious and elegantly presented.
We went back recently for a jazz lunch during the recent Thredbo Jazz Festival. This time they offered a more relaxed a’ la carte menu with affordable prices while maintaining both the quality of the food and the presentation. On both occasions the restaurant was packed with happy diners. Very good ambience, excellent service, great hospitality and friendly hosts. Highly recommended.

We booked and had dinner here... I loved the atmosphere but most of all I loved the service of the wait staff... We'll definitely be back here sometime soon.
