Bella Vista Hotel, Bella Vista

The Bella Vista Hotel has an upmarket bistro perfect for a family lunch. Their new menu is now out so if you're a local, come and check it out. How tasty does this beef sirloin look?

The Bella Vista Hotel is located in surprise surprise - Bella Vista. As I enter, I notice the sleek decore and a small group of women drinking champagne in a booth. What a life!!

There's also a huge bar right by the bistro (above). I look at the specials menu and am immediately tempted. I also look at the main menu. The bistro is probably a bit more pricey than your average pub however there's not as much competition in the area. You'd have to travel a bit before you got any decent comparable venues.

A dish that's perfect to share is the Parma Prosciutto and Buffalo Mozzarella (Below, $21). There's something really satisfying about the flavour combinations of the creamy and soft mozzarella along with the thinly sliced proscuitto.

With any dishes from the "grill menu", you also get a choice of a side of greens, salad, mash, potatoes or chips. The 300g Riverina Sirlion is absolutely gorgeous and perfectly cooked. The sirloin sits on a bed of balsamic vinegar caramelised spanish onions and grilled celeriac. I would have ordered a side of chips but I was feeling too full (this was my second lunch of the day).

For a lighter dish, I highly recommend the Pan roasted barramundi, (below $36, with a choice of a side) and if you are a fan of mussels then you can add them(add $7). The crispy skin barramundi sits on a lovely buttery sauce and I absolutely love mussels.

Summary: Check out their new menu if you are looking for a nicer lunch. I think both mains of sirloin and roasted barramundi were really tasty. They also have this great Burger truck (on the weekends) outside as well if you are looking for something a bit more casual.

Price: $26-$40 for mains
