Like other recent reviewers we experienced a long wait for lunch - this time on a public holiday. Even though we were told 40 mins wait when I ordered, it took a bit over an hour. And it wasn't as if we were there when the rush was on - we ordered about 1.30pm and it was pretty quiet. Staff... More

We arrived at 1pm and ordered 4 meals we also had a 1 year old in toe. It was busy inside. Ordered our meals and over an hour later they finally arrived at the table. Not once was it mentioned that they would take that long. By the time the meals arrived the one year old was feral as from... More

Slow food (> 45 min for lunch), small servings, fish rejected by my 8 year old (when does that ever happen???) because it 'didn't taste right' - very floury & soft. Should have read the previous reviews before picking spontaneous lunch. Don't!

Go elsewhere... The food was tasteless and seemed to be packaged and deep fried. The steak burger consisted of a piece of steak that was of the same thickness as a rasher of bacon and the salad was old and dry.

This bistro is an embarrassment to the hotel. I have given the cooks a number of opportunities to make a good impression, however from badly selected seafood products, leaving food on the pass for 10 minutes and serving the wrong meals to tables. The end result is cooking that is totally underwhelming and disappointing. If you want to have a... More

Very popular local with quite a broad menu. Indoor and outdoor facilities. Pizzas are great value as is the steak night; otherwise slightly above average pub meal prices. Kid friendly. Guiness on tap.

Pub food that is trying to be a bit upmarket. It seems to attract a crowd on a Saturday night and tables can be difficult to obtain in the dining room. Worth booking a table if you are a group.

After 18 months of not living in Maleny, went back for a meal with friends. Good food. I ordered fish and mash, and it was yummy. Perhaps the serve was a little small, but very tasty.

We were hungry after being disappointed by not getting to Montville early enough, we came on to Maleny to find somewhere to eat. The pub had a good reputation. We got a seat easily enough. Lunch time was super busy but I do feel they should have had more staff on. It still took nearly an hour from ordering to... More
