Lots of choice on the menu, with Senior specials great variety & value. They also have daily specials that offer a good selection also.
The food was good and reasonable value. However, our reserved table was not available as someone had removed our reservation sign and took the table as theirs. The signs need to be more than a piece of paper put on a table.
Hi I am sorry that your table was taken and that you lost your reserved seating. Unfortunately this is out of our control and does happen sometimes. We do create a floorplan with all our bookings on busy nights so we can ensure were all the reserved tables have been placed. We take your advise on board and will assess the matter to try and improve the way we put our reservations out.
The food prices are not competitive at all. For a club, it's very expensive and the menu is boring. I haven't been there in over a year and not much has changed except the price. Other patrons were also commenting. I am a local I live at Ettalong but will not go back in a hurry
Thank you for your feedback. We take all feedback on board and try to better ourselves and the products we offer. Our Bistro 51 menu changed just before summer. Street food Kitchen is also a new dining outlet that launched in November. We are sorry to hear you will not be coming back.
Great family vibe , friendly staff, menu variety and extremely clean venue
Thank you for your feedback, it is lovey to hear you had an enjoyable time dining at our club.
Great for kids! However the food was quite pricey.
Thank you for your feedback, we take all feedback on board and work to better our dining areas where possible.
A great place to eat and take the kids. We did a Christmas catch up with friends and booked a table near the play area. The food came out promptly and catered to gluten free. Overall it was a nice relaxing evening for all.
Thank you for your feedback. We are very pleased to hear you and your friends had a nice time here. Being a family friendly club this is great news to hear. Look forward in seeing you again.
Food was over cooked and cold will not be coming back anytime soon
Thank you for your feedback, we take all feedback seriously and on board to improve and better ourselves. I apologize that your experience dining with us was not of the standard we pride ourselves by and I do wish that you will join us again in the future so we can show our improvements.
Very disappointing "Christmas Trimmings" lunch with my family. The staff were nice but food not hot and vegetables undercooked. They could not supply dessert advertised as they had run out and it was only 12.30 - 1 p.m.
We will not be do ing there again.
Food was quite nice. I had the Christmas dinner, the roast vegetables were lovely, the turkey appeared to be slices that you would purchase from the deli, but still good. My friend stated that her salmon was over cooked.
Food very expensive for an average meal. Very noisy too
Booked my table online only to arrive and find there was no table with my name on it. What's the point of having online booking if no one bothers to check it
I booked a balcony table and found that we were given a table inside
Had a lovely family dinner at Diggers. With 3 children in the family, the indoor playground and kids meals made it a pleasant experience. Only criticism is the limited wine list.
I absolutely loved the food the barramundi was delicious my friend had the steak and he enjoyed it as well
Had booked a terrace table but when we arrived we had been given an indoor table. On checking our booking they were very apologetic that an error had been made and as it was Easter Sunday there were no more outdoor tables available. However they opened up their conference / party room just fir us. The view was not as good but very quiet and we were happy with wgpgat they did for us
Would certainly book again
Bistro 51 is always pretty good value. They have a very good kitchen and really switched on staff as they processed our food order which was 18 different dishes for our party of 15 people in approx 10-12 minutes. That would be regarded as 1st rate even for a 5 star restaurant.
And most importantly the food is always of the highest quality.
I love it.
The service was awesome! We had two meals over the weekend and could not fault them.
We really enjoyed ourselves and the staff were amazing and very helpful.
Will be back
The tables are so old and sticky outside that we moved inside. Food was ok, but pricey for what you get. The downside is the lack of customer service. There were plenty of empty tables but none had been cleaned off. When I went and found someone and asked if someone could clean a table for us he acted like I’d asked him something unreasonable. Will try somewhere else next time
Being able to have the choice of Vegan options is rare - the food was devine good food and reasknable price at our local club was pretty special!
We had a lovely time. We enjoyed the music- however it was a little too loud for our children. Food was yum
Good view from outside area, plenty of things for kids to do . Food was really good in value and taste. Highly recommended if in the area to visit.
Great place for fish and chips with fantastic views
Food was good - portion sizes great. Shame they've moved the childrens' play area to an obscure corner though - it was more user-friendly where it was before.
Upon arrival there was nobody to show us where our table was. The coffeeshop staff looked at an i pad and told us to go looking for it. I eventually found it.
Menu is ok but too dear for club-style food.
New decor is awful. Clashing loud patterns and the bench seats with walls closing off the room and outside views look terrible
Saturday night had heaps of screaming kids running around near playroom
Will try to go early in the week next time
We went there for my sisters birthday. It was a fairly large group and we were well looked after. Really enjoyed the afternoon. Kids activities were appropriate for the age group. Reasonable prices. Plenty of parking and a great atmosphere. Worth the trip up from Sydney.
Great meal the staff were extremely friendly and helpful and we had a great night and won $5 at the trivia night
My reservation was not processed by venue staff, so going through OpenTable was a total waste of time.
Very average venue not worth the need for reservation
Been here a few times and would always highly recommend it for families especially with small children. Would be great if when booking you have the option of begin seated near the play area.
It was mums 80th & she had a lovely lunch & day with family.
My husbands first meal was the wrong meal, that's ok though, sent it back. Only for his correct meal to come out not cooked! By this time everyone else had well and truly finished. So we asked for a refund and he went to maccas!
We reserved a table and that was easy to find. Great food choice for everyone from adults to kids. Our friend has a food allergy and the kitchen staff were very accommodating and took the matter seriously. Very friendly staff and a fantastic place to take kids
We love going to the Ettalong Diggers, Bistro 51. The food is pretty good, with decent serving sizes. Daily/weekly specials are great, but the regular menu prices are a bit over the top. $25 for Fish and Chips, as nice as it might be, is still just Fish and Chips. The Popcorn Chicken is a winner, with the kids and adults. I love the Sweet Potato fries, and Cauliflower/Zucchini fritters. You can't beat a good Chicken Schnitzel, or Roast of the day. The waterfront views are lovely, and there is often a musician playing away. Worth a visit.
