I'm writing this review on behalf of four residents of Bowral who have been going to Onesta for some time. Sadly over time we have all noticed the deterioration of the quality of food. Last week it was so poor that we all decided that it was the last time for us. On talking to other well travelled locals their... More

This restaurant receives high ratings, and so was a natural choice for our anniversary dinner. Partner had been in last twelve months as part of a book club meeting, but had not had the chance for a full menu meal, and this was her first choice venue for this year. Service was pleasant and efficient, both friendly and effective. Nice... More

Finally a restaurant that lives up to its reputation in the Southern Highlands. And finally one that isn't ripping it's customers off. I can't speak highly enough of this place. The food isn't just any old Italian - it's modern Italian cooked with real flair and passion for ingredients. I'm still drooling over my flounder, which was so sweet and... More

Out for dinner with a few friends on a special occasion, I found this restaurant had a great atmosphere, but it was so busy! We were a little crowded and it was hard for waitresses to get past, but the food and wines were superb. Hard to beat.

We have been before and will come back again. The ambience is great and you feel looked after from the moment your coat is taken to when you have paid and there is ample room to dress for the cold before you enter it. We started with the lightly warmed bread, before moving on to the prawns and polenta entrees.... More

The Highlands can be a bit hit or miss when it comes to food and in particular service. Our booking was at short notice, large group and on a Tuesday when most Highlands restaurants are closed. The food was excellent and whole experience was made even better by the service from a small but efficient team who were very accommodating.

Currently my favourite restaurant in Bowral - Osso Bucco is great, served with roasted carrots and I always order a side of the garlic/rosemary potatoes. Beautiful! Favourite dessert is the chocolate pie, light and fluffy like a chocolate souffle. Great wine list - also very comprehensive.

We had a wonderful dinner on Easter Saturday for my partners birthday. Could not fault the food or service. We hadn't dined at Onesta before but every time we mentioned to people we were heading there that evening they had nothing but praise for both the food and the staff. We will certainly be back, with stretchy pants! Not a... More

What a fantastic birthday celebration we had here. Every meal our party ordered was beautifully presented and of excellent quality. Service was attentive yet non-intrusive.
