We had lunch here several times and also a Group Evening Meal. Normally for lunch we had Toasted Sandwiches (for which there is a good menu) and Chips. Our evening meal was eclectic with many varied choices as there were 25 of us dining.

Fantastic meals and cheap. There's a great duo who entertained us with music. Great vocals. A fun vibe with all the workers I met. I went 3 times in a weeks stay in Norfolk Island.

Decor was nothing special but the service and food were good. They were busy but still coped well with the crowd.

Don't know about the bistro, but I didn't think it would have any accommodation, as it is only an eatery.
