Great food. And friendly staff. The pad Thai and red duck curry are stand out dishes. And the prawn crackers are delicious!! Celebrated my partners birthday here and had a great night. Would highly recommend. Will be back!

Absolutely wonderful night at Basta. Food was delicious. Sat up at the bar and watched the chefs preparing our food. The chef was incredible and so professional. Great food and nice wine list. Friendly service too. Will definitely be back. Highly recommend.

Estelle Bistro


Joanne dined on Mon, 11th Dec 2017 (7)

Estelle had a great atmosphere and attentive service. It was such a shame that the food was overly salty on both the entree of Wagyu tartare and the main course of salmon. I didn’t try another entree or main so maybe I just made a bad choice but I wouldn’t choose either again unfortunately purely due to the overpowering salty flavour. I also found a bone in my salmon which made me wary of more throughout the rest of my meal. This said, when the menu changes I’d love to give this another chance as I’ve been wanting to go here for ages and the service and atmosphere was great. I think with different menu choices (or less salt) this could be easily 10/10.

Robert Burns Hotel


Joanne dined on Mon, 27th Nov 2017 (6)

Ordered a red wine. Got a white wine. Was made to feel stupid when I ordered the wine so didn't feel i could say it was wrong wine when it arrived. Staff were quite abrupt at times. The portion of bread we were given, although free, could have been more substantial, very thin, small, badly cut pieces of bread. Our table for 2 was too small to fit on the plates we had ordered so ended up balancing our wine and water glasses on the ledge next to us, which was overlooking the dining room and was petrified I was going to knock it onto the customers below. Overall, quite an uncomfortable experience at the table. Food was ok, but nothing special. Which is a shame as we have dined here before and the food and the service were much better last time.. maybe was just an off day. Wouldn't rush back any time soon. But hopefully others will have a better experience.
