After walking in off the street and being told the restaurant was full for lunch, the owner stopped my Mother, who was walking out, and made a personal effort to have an extra table brought out and set up for us so that we could stay.
We shared a few entrée's which were beautiful (warm olives - who knew warm olives could equate to heaven wrapped around a pip!)
Between the 5 of us, we each ordered a different main and each of us was equally impressed. My grilled Barramundi, Potato, and grape, fennel, green bean & Persian fetta salad was purely divine.
Little touches like hand cut potato chips with the steak, a whole baked pig with the pork saltimbocca, the fantastic quality of the olive oil and balsamic vinegar served with the fresh bread - these are the points of difference that the best restaurants go out of their way to include and it means they get it right every time.
Being in near the Margaret River wine region meant The Studio Bistro boasted a wonderful wine list, with a choice for any budget or palette, even including numerous international varieties.
Being in the commercial design industry, I pay a lot of attention to detail in the design and fit-out as well as the ambiance of all hospitality venues, and I have to say the ambience in this Bistro is perfect. The covered outdoor deck and garden make for beautiful dining all year round, and the interior is warm and inviting while remaining contemporary and still reflecting the organic and natural surrounding environment.
All of my companions to the Studio Bistro and myself would highly recommend this venue next time you are in any neighbouring regions!
