'Bistro 289' at The Laurel Hotel can be enterted via the Mt Alexander rd entrance. Our Bistro is more then just your normal 'pub' bistro with it's elegant and modern decor, comfortable seating, large tables, ambient lighting, relaxing tunes and a food and beverage menu to match.
We offer 'a la carte' service, but if larger bookings prefer to pay seperately and order and pay at the bar, that is ok too.

The menu has a little bit of everything to suit all.  Offering traditional style 'pub grub' as well as an array of other dishes - entrees, mains and housemade desserts. Our Parmagiana - so yummy - is still our best seller but for something different try our 'Crispy Skin Pork Belly' or our delicious and tender 'Seasoned Calamari' or our 'Oven Baked Stuffed Pepper'.
Deepa Karki our recently appointed Head Chef has created a delectable menu which include pub favorites, seafood, steaks, yummy winter feasts, pasta, risotto and weekly specials that are sure to impress.
Then finish off with one of our housemade desserts; creme brulee, sticky date pudding or salted caramel and chocolate brownie sandwich.

Bistro 289 sits up to 150 people comfortably so can be booked out entirely or 'part of' for functions. 'The Atrium' private dining area seats 26 comfortably on 2 long tables and has a plasma screen tv, fire place and is decorated individually.
In summer you can enjoy your dinner in our private outside courtyard area.
We have lots of large tables perfect for group bookings and family outings.

Children are always welcome and have their own menu at $12 which includes a main, soft drink and kids dessert.
We have a monthly colouring competition where kid's can win prizes and vouchers.

There is wheelchair access from the Mt Alexander road entrance.
