“Excellent quality and good sizes serving”
Reviewed 8 June 2014

Very nice restaurant in the Rydges hotel situated on the edge of conrod straight at Bathurst. Nicely done with the sunken bar and a very good size. No trouble getting 50 people standing around it. The restaurant is very nicely spaced out. Plenty of room between tables, carpeted and quite so you can quietly speak to people without having the shout which I feel ruins a meal. Quality of the food was excellent as was the selection of wines especially some regional ones which were quite enjoyable.Breakfast was had there twice whilst staying at the hotel and this was quite OK for typical hotel breakfast food, but the dinner menu and food was excellent

“Fast and friendly”
Reviewed 21 May 2014 via mobile

We had several meals in the restaurant over a weekend stay. Breakfast was lovely and elevated beyond the buffet norm by a pancake maker and peach & rhubarb jams. Dinner from the bar was fast and filling while the restaurant meal was delicious with a wonderful dessert. Staff were always friendly and attentive. Decor is a little cold but caters to the no fuss racing theme. Great location, unfortunately cold wet weather precluded the use of the verandah for drinks but maybe next time!

“Each time we ate there it was different but good”
Reviewed 30 April 2014 via mobile

I was there for work for 3 weeks and with different colleagues coming and going and as were staying at the hotel it was the first choice, I think I ate there maybe 5 times, the food was great but the last time I went I ordered the rib eye and yes I admit I like my steak med to well if not all well so I asked for well, it was so dry and hard I could hardly cut it, it was terrible , however the previous times I had the beef cheek it was amazing , the lamb , deserts are fantastic and the wine selection also great, we did on occasions have quite big parties but we arrived at 8:30
One night and weren't served until after 10pm, however another occasion there was only 5 and it was great, so I can't fault other then those couple of things, the manager was very friendly and he would always smile and say hello,

“Just needs "tweeking"”
Reviewed 15 April 2014

Living so close to Mt Panorama, I often have the opportunity to eat at the Chicane Bar & Grill.
The menu is family friendly and reasonably priced. The Wagyu Beef Burger is very delicious and good value. The atmosphere is quiet, so conversation is easy. If you are looking for a COLD beer on a hot summers afternoon, this is the place. My only reason for the average rating is that the service was not up to standard. The staff may have been trainees, if so, they should have worn name badges indicating Trainee status. Bar staff also didn't know what beers they had on tap, again if they were trainees, I would've understood. Mt Panorama is a wonderful track and to have a major hotel chain connected with a good restaurant is a bonus for beautiful Bathurst. As my title says it just needs a little "tweeking" to be excellent.
