Food was disappointing this time. Had the ricotta crostini and it lacked flavour. Pumpkin ravioli way too sweet. Service was great.

Unfortunately they did not follow COVID guidelines

It was my first time in your restaurant. It was recommended by her friend and I was very pleased with the whole experience. I will definitely tell friends and go back for sure. The highlight of the experience was definitely the service we got, I unfortunately don't know the name of the lady but she made the evening so pleasant. Tks

Overall experience was good. Their service was excellent. However I may not go back because of the food. I found overall the food was quite salty. I have to say I am used to stronger taste food. But I still find every dish quite salty. Not bad, but consider there are many choice out there. I am not come back.

We've enjoyed Bonterra a number of times over the years and has been one of our favourites. On our recent visit, our meals were great and were definitely up to our expectations. The service, however, was definitely lacking.

Ambiance and setting were excellent. Spacing excellent. Noise level excellent. Arctic char dish was smaller than hoped for. Fish serving was fine but the dish needed more vegetables. Pasta dish flavour was a bit flat.

It was my Mum’s birthday celebration and even without telling the staff we had a superb service. Food is fun as even the main course you can do as shareable. Gnocchi dish highly recommended!

The Ricotta Gnocchi was to die for, the ricotta on focaccia was to die for. Lovely atmosphere and top notch, down to earth service! The type of place you tell you friends about... or take them to!! We'll be back!

We have been to Bonterra several times and this is probably our worst experience

1) The main chef wasnt in the house and this was reflected in the execution of the dishes
2) A glass of wine came with a rather larger "residue". We were just told it was a piece of cork. Ah...ok. Waitress didnt really want to change until we insisted.
3) 3 out 4 of us thought the mussels weren't fresh... At least one liked them. They weren't fresh... the worst mussels we have tried
4) Pasta weren't even close to traditional Italian pasta

Sorry for being negative but these are the plain facts

I rarely give bad reviews. But this is one of them

We chose Bonterra based on their menu. Unfortunately it had changed only 2 days earlier and I wasn’t overly impressed by the choices.
I don’t think that all of the restaurants at present are up to their usual standards. Maybe we caught them in a bad night.
