Just celebrated my birthday with a Degustation Dinner at Mount Bistro. All I can say is WOW this was truly one of the most exciting, memorable meals I have had. The presentation was outstanding and the flavours of each dish were amazing. The service was excellent and the waiter was great fun. Steven, Debbie and your team we salute you,... More

We always had an intention to try this restaurant but the actual trying was a long time coming. Always heard it was highly recommended but also highly priced. Anyway, finally got there. Busy for a mid-week evening which is a good sign. Has a nice ambience. Service was great although a very long wait for the mains. The menu contains... More

From our starters of salmon tartare, to scallops, through main of seafood flambé with vodka and fantastic lamb dish to tasting dessert plate - the whole dinner was a... More

We booked a party of 6 plus a toddler. We were seated promptly A Highchair was provided without prompting. An extremely busy restaurant at this time of the year (February). The wait staff was most courtesy and attentive. The food was delicious, a memorable evening was enjoyed by all.

We had such an amazing dinning experience at Mount Bistro. All the courses were cooked perfectly. We specially enjoyed the chief added the sweet treats in our starters and mains. It was really special. Services were sweet! We got the special Valentine's presents even after the real date of Valentine's day. Definitely will come back for more special occassions. Highly...

We booked a table but when we arrived we waited in the doorway for ages and ages with waiters ignoring us. We waited ages for menus and then for a drink. When the food eventually came it was very nice, the flaming fish skewer a great success. What a pity they cannot organise the service side.

This is relaxed fine dining at reasonable prices. Food was amazing - I had the duck and my husband the lamb and both were cooked to perfection. We had the sharing plate dessert which we loved. Service was warm and friendly and not overpowering - very professional. We had a great evening and if ever we are back in Mount... More

We booked only 2 hours before we wanted to eat and pinched ourselves at the good fortune that had steered us to this gem. Chef Stephen flamed our seafood skewer at the table himself, the scallops, prawns, salmon and white fish could not have been more perfectly cooked. Follow this with lamb 3 ways and duck confit for our perfect... More

Has to be one of the best restaurants in the area. Looks very unassuming from the outside. Every course was perfect and the hostesses were very attentive with refilling our water glasses without being annoying. If you want fine dining at its best then this is the place to go. As we went with someone who had a birthday which... More
