I have regular lunches here with friends, the food is always nice and the service is always excellent, Have had many dinners also you can book a table for dinner but not in large numbers, the girls bring your meals to your table which is a nice touch . Meal portions are very good. They don't have waitress as such... More

Nice ambience and good selection of food but don't expect low prices 😩 Others commented on large portions but our 3 meals were average size. We ordered a chicken burger, a grilled fish and Parma and it cost $61.

This is great, wrote my last post about a bad experience with my Caesar Salad. Had a call from the head Chef and asked what was missing. Tonight they have it RIGHT. I will be back, this is in the top 5% category of best Ceasar Salads. Well done to the Bistro.

I love this club for it's generosity! Having eaten at far too many clubs to mention, Platform 61 Bistro gives by far the most generous portions we've ever eaten! It's a pleasant dining room, friendly service and as this review relates to our most recent visit... everything was excellent! This club is to be commended for serving such delicious food... More

We had surf n turf and the chicken caesar salad burger. Both were delicious, well cooked and steak done as ordered. Fast service. Nice modern atmosphere. If this was... More

Excellent food and value for money. Meals were large and cooked to perfection. Menu needs updating as we dine here regularly. Staff are always pleasant and helpful - especially Emma and Ellina.

Good quick service. Enjoyed a pizza and salad and chips. Simple well presented and fast service. The pizza had generous toppings and was served piping hot to the table. The side salad was an interesting collection of leaves and added good flavour and texture to the meal. Cheap as chips!
