We had a large family catch up for lunch on a Sunday. As soon as I walked into the dining area, it smelt quite musty. The staff were all lovely and the kid's play area is fantastic. The meals were hit and miss. I ordered a vegie burger with chips. After eating a few chips I realised they were undercooked... More

Picked this Bistro as it came up on our entertainment book. We were not disapointed. Food was very good and come out quiet fast. Kids loved the playground and kids meals.

Great restaurant at this hotel, have been there twice recently. Meals are a good size, staff are nice and place is well set out, the best part if you have children is the play centre, it is massive and on Sundays they have a Spiderman or Superman character and have balloons and face painting. Would definately return.

It's been years since I've been to the waltzing and probably would never have returned as I don't live in the area but I needed to take my parents to dinner after a day at the hospital. I couldn't think of anywhere else in the area and as I was driving there I was praying it was decent. Surprise surprise... More
