After a trying day searching for allergy safe food in Bowral, I was delighted to indulge in the bistros food. My whole party enjoyed their meals. It was coeliac safe, with plenty of options. Double points for a low histamine, dairy free, gluten free and low Fodmap option. The staff were very accommodating and happy to answer all my allergy food related questions. The steak was tender, the chips were delicious and crispy. The meal was topped off by our close seat next to the roaring fireplace. 100% happy with our experience. Owners should install lights by the entrance inside near the stairs. It was very dark entering from the street.
Nice cosy bistro dining room with fireplace and delicious, good value pub meals with generous servings and thoughtful touches like colouring in and activities for the children. Service was attentive and friendly, would recommend.
Do not stay here. The conditions were awful. The disgusting husband and wife owners made me feel like a bad person. Furthermore, it was overpriced. Do not stay there! Finally, it was dirty! They made me feel so uncomfortable and I was going through a very, very hard time. Call me stupid, but aren’t people In this business suppose to be hospitable and kind? Awful, awful people! Never stay there. Ever. Just do not do it!
The food at the Bistro / Restaurant is better than the Lagoon in Wollongong. Comparable to any high class Restaurant in the area. Amazing seafood, risotto, ribs and other Italian inspired meals. The seafood is cooked to perfection, no overcooked fish and dried out prawns. The burgers are very good too. The current Chef is friendly, accomodating and very talented. He is only there for another few weeks, so be quick.
We celebrated a low key early family Christmas in Mittagong at the weekend. We were so pleased that we chose the Highlands Hotel for dinner on Saturday night. We were a party of 8 adults and one child. We all ordered meals from the Specials Board and they were - without exception - delicious, reasonably priced and equal in standard to any quality restaurant. The owners, Brett and Maz went out of their way to make us feel welcome. They were great hosts. We will definitely be back again and highly recommend this hotel restaurant to other visitors looking for a good quality meal in a relaxed, authentic pub setting. Our compliments to the Chef!
