Description: the Studio Bistro has gone through some subtle and significant changes all designed to enhance your dining experience. With the expertise of our new internationally trained head chef we have moved away from a strong Asian influence to a more modern Australian Bistro cuisine with a classic home influence touching each dish. We choose to source our produce locally and sustainable as long as it's of the highest standard. This is reflected in our fresh Gold Band Snapper, sourced from Shark bay and always line caught not trawled. The Studio Bistro has always prided itself in a comprehensive wine list representing quality, true value from the Margaret River region and beyond. You can wine and dine close to nature with a view of our bush garden and enjoy visits of local birds and many resident varieties. We open for lunch most days and Dinner on Saturday nights giving you the opportunity to dine a la cart or our very popular 5 course degustation. Every Sunday we feature live music by prominent local musicians so you can relax and enjoy lunch or a glass of wine. Studio Bistro is a perfect venue for wedding and corporate functions.

Went there for my birthday with friends. Loved the food, gallery and location. An awesome solo artist playing added to the ambience of a very pleasant afternoon

“A gem in the South West of WA”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 July 2014

This is the second time we have been here. And, it's got better. The food is brilliant. Great, modern, country style cooking. The portions are generous and are yummy, the wine list is extensive and not over priced. Not to be missed.

“Not as good as our last visit”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 July 2014

A group of 10 friends went to Studio Bistro for a Saturday lunch and we were disappointed.
The service was very slow, it took over half an hour to get the drinks we ordered and we had to get up and fill our own wine glasses during the meal!!
Entrees were very small serves, the squid has ony 4 small pieces and the rest was salad, the seared tuna was tasty, but also a small serve.
Mains: Also small serves, the lamb was very fatty but the other diners stated that the steak and fish was tasty as was the rossini.
Only 3 of us had desert and they were all ok.
All in all a disappointing experience I know there are new owners but standards have dropped..

“Needs work”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 July 2014 via mobile

To be greeted without a hello showed pretty much how the service of the day followed. Everything almost seemed like too much trouble.
Food. Innovative menu. Average food. We were never told the 3 specials which afterwards were much more interesting than what we had ordered. So all I can say is average food. Average service. Nice wine list and starters are value for money. Would I return? Probably not.

“Reasonable standard”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 July 2014

'Down South' as it's referred, to has a plethora of restaurants - many well known and others not so well known.
So, to the uninitiated, deciding on a dinner venue can come down to the menu and the website to get an idea of cuisine and standard.
This is how we chose The Studio Gallery.
We were not disappointed , nor were we amazed.
The food was tasty and sufficient, a good variety and included local produce.
Service was somewhat lacking but still ok.
Atmosphere looked intimate from a distance, however, the room inside is a little cavernous and can be noisy.
I would recommend, however, not for an intimate dinner or culinary greatness.
It's a good standard, reasonable price and presents honestly.
