Lovely atmosphere with nice old world (think 1930's) classy charm decor. The food was excellent & the attentive service was lovely. It's nice to have your chair pulled out, napkin draped & water poured.
The restaurant, service and food were all exceptional. For entree we had the calamari and we both thought these were the best we had ever had,
Fantastic meal and great staff! Always attentive and happy to help. Dinner and breakfast were both absolutely amazing we will both be back very soon
entrée, main and dessert were all excellent , service was very prompt, although a smile from the waiting staff would have been nice. :) :)
My experience at Bistro 65 was quite different to the many reviews. I was not impressed with the ambiance.... it is clearly set up for breakfast service as you walk in. We were seated quickly and the view from the mezzanine overlooking Rundle St was pleasant. Staff were not overly attentive with drink orders taken and a long wait before they were served. The food was acceptable but forgettable which does not match the prices. Bill splitting was allowed which was helpful. Overall it was an unremarkable experience.
Visited BistroSixty5 after a Fringe show which meant a reasonably late dinner reservation. Only one other group in the restaurant when we arrived so was able to enjoy a very quiet meal overlooking Hindley Street from the mezzanine floor. Reception process smooth, hostess friendly and waiting staff very pleasant and attentive, without being pushy. I was there on a voucher which included two courses and a bottle of wine. Food satisfactory, without being particularly noteworthy. Share platter, as an entree option, could have been smaller. It meant struggling through the main course! Only two choices of wine; a Sauvignon Blanc or Shiraz, both house varieties. Our white, like the meal, was acceptable without being remarkable. Would be interested in dining there again to compare the full menu, and wine list, experience.
We have enjoyed Bistro 65 on several occasions. The service is attentive and food is consistently good. However I feel the menu offering for voucher deals has declined in recent times. But I've no doubt we will be back, with or without a voucher, as this venue has much more going for it - great city location, good quality accommodation and a fabulous buffet breakfast!
We had a scoopon voucher, great value! Bottle of Shiraz was beautiful, as was the platter for 2, steak mash and broccolini. The sticky date pudding and ice cream was delicious and the butterscotch sauce to go with it was yum but very sweet. We also had the Eton mess, this was my least favourite dish, I think the strawberries had been cut on the same board as onions which left an unpleasant taste. but over all was a great night and the service was good! Would go back again
The four of us really enjoyed our dinner at Bistro sixty5. service was excellent right from the time we arrived until we left. the foot was great and the wine excellent. I would thoroughly recommend this restaurant, which is nice and central, and has a good setting and not crowded even when their are lots of diners. Thankyou Bistro sixty5...
Service was professional and efficient. The food was delicious and of a high standard. The restaurant area is on a mezzanine level, overlooking the bar and entrance of the hotel. One suggestion - the live entertainment, although an excellent singer, was complemented by a very average sound system. Hence the music was a little loud and muffled. Overall, I would definitely recommend this restaurant and would visit again.
