Poor quality steak

2.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 28 Sept 2023
We thought we would treat ourselves with a rib on the bone, Atherton grass fed beef. It was tough and about 30percent fat and gristle. The pepper sauce was inedible. At $55 a serve VERY DISAPPOINTED .
When we voiced our dissatisfaction with staff (twice) were told "we will speak to the chef"
It was not the fault of the chef, the beef was not top quality, I would exoect rib on the bone to be 'melt in the mouth'

    Outstanding eating area and food. My wife had crispy skin barramundi and I grilled lamb cutlets, which I could have almost cut with a butter knife.

    Tender and juicy, with salad on the side. Good variety of wines by the glass.

    My husband and I ate at the Barron river hotel for dinner. He had a parmigana and I had the rib on the bone. My steak was the best steak I have had at a restaurant in years, with the best mushroom sauce.in ages. The environment is beautiful an old pub with a fireplace. You order and pay at the counter and the rest is table service

    After a very nice drive through varying countryside from Port Douglas. We arrived in Atherton a lovely township steeped in history. The Barron valley Hotel is 1930’s art deco building with photos on every wall telling of its inhabitants and importance of a very important time inF.N.Q. A wonderful and very well priced lunch. Well worth the visit.

    The food was amazing. A whole grass fed rib eye steak in the Thai beef salad and wonderful fish and chips, all in large sizes, so didn’t need entrees. Service was incredible, table service for drinks and food without being pushy.

    Very old traditional type hotel. The lunch specials were $15 Monday to Friday. Could also order drinks with your lunch which was nice. The food was excellent as was the service. Old style architecture with easy access for wheelchair or if you’re a bit older lovely timber finished. The staff were friendly and came around during lunch to check everything was satisfactory. Highly recommend for lunch.
