Our tastes in wine may be slightly different, however our selection contains the bottles we love to drink sourced locally and from around the globe. The list features small producers and exciting blends covering the breadth and depth of the wine making world. If it is for a glass of wine or a great Italian red with some cheese, we have it covered.
Bar Bianco's menu is seasonal and luxurious; dishes are designed as smaller bites for flexible dining, with some larger items complementing the offering.
Come in and get immersed into a world of wine, classic cocktails with a twist or a tipple from behind the counter.

Lovely people. nice and friendly service with great wine. food was excellent , however needs more chioce to menu. we arrived early at 4.30pm and had time to have a good chat to my wife.
Wonderful date night after emerging from lockdown. Great food and cocktails. Thank you
Hi there, Thanks for the 5-star review! We're glad you enjoyed your date night with us. We hope to have you join us again soon.
What a treat. We sought a lovely experience for a date and we got more than we hoped for. The wine list is impressive and we were not disappointed with our selection. The staff and manager were friendly, interested and delightfully helpful. And the food? Omg. What a delicious and mouth thrilling experience. Some dishes were even brought to the table by the head chef who explained his craft. The restaurant is quiet, we could talk, and we could fully relax into our evening. So special. Give Bar Bianco a try.

What a beautiful restaurant. From the friendly staff & ambiance to amazing food worthy of any fine dining rating without the exorbitant price tag. The staff couldn’t accomodate our group enough. The chef personally came to our table to intricately describe each dish & where ingredients were from.
A great dining experience. Please give Bar Bianco a visit you won’t be disappointed!

I have been to Bar Bianco twice and have been blown away both times. The atmosphere is warm and intimate, the service is attentive, friendly and enthusiastic and the food is clever, sophisticated with great depths of flavours. The wine list is exceptional and the cocktails are creative and addictive. I cannot wait to visit Bar Bianco again.

Hi Melissa, Thanks for your 5-star review! We're so glad that you and your guests enjoyed your experience with us. We look forward to seeing you again soon.
I love, love, love Bar Bianco. The service is extremely friendly, fast and professional, and everyone we spoke to had a great knowledge for the menu. The whole experience felt like we were in a place with a great sense of its own identity. Menu is big enough that you have range, but not so big that you get stuck deciding, and the wait staff were really helpful in suggesting amounts to order.
Wine menu is excellent too, really not a bad drop to be found, and something to pair with whatever you’re eating.
More than anything, I love the ambience. Its so delightful, romantic, warm, traditional and fun. A place like Bar Bianco could easily feel tacky in that they’ve built it to feel like it’s been there for 40 years, but they’ve executed it so well and you can’t help but leave and feel like you’ve spent a few hours in Italy.
Can’t wait to go back soon. Only wish the liquor license was later, so we could carry on into the evening.
Hi Kyle, Thanks for taking the time to leave such a glowing review of your recent visit to Bar Bianco. We really appreciate all your kind words regarding our service, menu and wine.

Hi Nick, Thanks for your kind review! We're so glad you enjoyed the food and atmosphere. We look forward to seeing you again soon.
Bar Bianco never disappoints - the food is elegant, inventive and always delicious. The chef's passion for what he does shines through, underpinned by his visits to diner's tables to answer questions and discuss the dishes. And the service and wine recommendations from the front of house team were excellent. The smoked Murray cod was an absolute highlight for us. Can't wait to return again!

A beautiful venue, the food was beautiful and the service exceptional. I don't want to be too positive as it will become more difficult to access as this little gem becomes more well known as it surely will.

Excellent service and outstanding food.
Fabulous local - great, fresh produce and food paired with a lovely selection of wines and unique cocktails.
Shared plates were disappointing - no advice as to suitable portions and selection was limited. Given that bookings for meals are required the menu just doesn't cut it. A lovely venue for drop in drinks.
Dear NikiB, We are surprised to hear that you didn`t enjoyed the dining experience with us. We trust there is a great range of smaller and larger dishes for sharing or individual enjoyment. Indeed we have a great range of wines and cocktails for a cheeky drink.
Outstanding bar with genuinely helpful staff and a real buzz. A focused list of interesting and fabulous wine/food.

Dear Bar Bianco guest Thank you for your awesome review. We are pleased to hear about, that we have looked after you. We love to go the extra mile taking care of everyone.
We had a wonderful night on Saturday visiting Bar Bianco. The staff were incredibly knowledgeable, attentive and welcoming. We popped in for an after dinner drink and some cheese - the cheese selection was great, and the wine even better. We were able to taste a few wines on the list prior to ordering - the whole experience was great. Would recommend!
We thoroughly enjoyed our dining experience and will definitely be visiting Bar Bianco again😊
Fabulous service of fabulous food and wine in a chic and intimate setting. Special attention from Chef was appreciated. Food is locally sourced and according to the seasons. The rabbit pasta was the highlight. Will be back ASAP
Fabulous service, beautiful wine, warm atmosphere and the food was amazing!
Fabulous food ,wonderful knowledgeable staff in particular the chef Marvin
Will definitely be returning on a regular basis.
Only down side - as it’s so small very difficult to get a table booking on line or a seat at the bar as a walk in!
Was a lovely experience over lunch, the food was great and we loved the wine menu. Looking forward to many more dining experiences here! Love the decor!
Dear KateH Thank you for reviewing your recent visit with us. We are very excited to welcome you back for more lunch/ dinner`s with us there is plenty more to explore and choose from.
The waitress didn’t seem to know much about the wine list which seemed odd for a wine bar. The food is completely overpriced and the serving sizes are tiny.
I won’t be going back.
Dear Tess, thanks for taking the time to write this review across our platforms. Constructive criticism of our venue, food and service is very helpful & helps reach higher levels in all that we do. We are disappointed to hear your thoughts of Bar Bianco. We believe, that we have created a fantastic venue and menu with the right balance. Our menu features a mix of bites and entrée style of dishes, with 3-4 main courses featured on our blackboard. Hope you will give us another try in the future
Service was attentive (and knowledgable), the menu was full of curious bites to taste (this is not a hearty menu if you're starving, although we didn't order the main meals - of which there are 3 daily specials to choose from). Wine menu is excellent. The space was 3/4 full while we were there and there were moments when the noise level got a little excited (but not to the point where I needed to yell or couldn't hear my friend - just had to lean in closer).
Dear KPN71 Glad to hear you have enjoyed your most recent visit and describing our venue perfectly. We are looking forward to see you next time.
Drinks are on the high side by the glass - bottle probably better value.
Food amazing- nice touch chef coming out and explaining each dish - will return
Amazing atmosphere, vey attentive staff, good wine selection and fantastic food. Will be returning soon
