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 seemed disinterested, 1 even refused to come back and tell us how long our meals would be. And the food was just OK, nothing that we thought should take so long. Was fairly ordinary pub food and the prices were OK. Parking was OK in the car park behind the pub. Won't be back.

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 sitting around too long. The meals were over cooked. The chicken snitzel was so over cooked I had to ask for a steak knife to cut through it. One staff member after an hour came and commented that the meals were coming. Pretty sure they were forgotten about until she checked.
Poor service, poor meals. Wouldn't of been so bad if we were kept in the loop about it all, and we didn't have a tired cranky one year old.

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 poor dining experience this is the place for you to eat in Maleny!

There is one shining light, the pizzas and service from the front of house staff. The kitchen could learn a lot from them.
