    Good food and excellent customer service. Shane has a great knowledge on wine selection to match the dishes on offer. Thanks to how professional and friendly Shane was to all customers or we wouldn’t have returned. However the chef was really slow in preparing the meal, average wait was 45min during our two visits.

    We entered the venue and were told that the Reservation from fork did not reach them. We had to wait for a good table and the line up at the bar was even longer. No one was around to serve or give out menus either. We ended up leaving and didn’t order there.

    The bistro is a basic eatery for those who stay at the resort. As you walk into the restaurant and bar area you get an idea that this is a place for staples, and so it was. We had Fish and Chips (no chips, extra salad) and Calamari with Asian Slaw. The food was good enough. The Slaw could be termed Asian - cabbages, tomatoes and salad leaves are all available in Asia. The dressing was non existent. Tartare sauce was served in little squeeze cartons. Everything tasted nice, though. The service on the other hand was amazing. Smiling wait staff were eager to help and make us welcome. They checked to see if we had everything we needed. They patiently waited while our phone reluctantly checked us in via the QR code. Nothing was a problem.

    The food is just ok- fish curry was good., other options very average. Mains were expensive. This place could be so nice- the lobby when you walk into the building is lovely, but on descending the stairs to the restaurant it’s dark and has ugly furniture, no decor. It’s baffling to me why management doesn’t bring it up to scratch...?

    I felt there was no ambiance, there was only one waiter running around trying to do everything. Food was average, actually my son's food was cold. It's a shame as it has a beautiful view.

    Very fast meal before we went to the lights - alright kids spaghetti dishes - quality was average. My pork belly was a bit fatty & my husband had a butter chicken. Again average. Menu needs a revamp.

    I was really excited to visit the restaurant and was not disappointed. I arrived early to decorate the table as it was a surprise birthday lunch. The staff were very friendly and super helpful. Thoroughly enjoyed our experience there. The only minus point was we ordered our food and wanted a starter to share and then our mains afterwards; all the food came out together so we had a very full table and had to eat quickly so it didn’t get cold. Other than that, would recommend definitely go again.

    Overpriced for what it is served. Both smoked chicken and mushroom burger were cold, bread was soggy, Seems like a cold sandwich you could make it in 2 minutes at home for $22 each. However, the pasta with bolognese sauce for kids were excellent. My son demolished.

    Staff were super friendly and helpful, but the food really let it down. Tasteless, frozen food that didn’t even match the menu description. Definitely not worthy it, do not recommend.
