    Well they changed the menu but not for the better I assure you. Probably one of the most terrible bistro parmas I've ever had. Not only could I not finish it, nor could anyone else on the table. Flat out garbage. Too heavy on the cheese (which makes the parma appear big in my photo, thats just a bucketload of overcooked cheese) The parma coating was solid as a rock and yet somehow the chicken inside still appeared undercooked. Chips were great but as you can see served well under the parma they were a bit ruined. Wayyyy too much salad, I had to shovel it off the plate just so I could get some room to eat. Point loss is because the parma wasn't the only crap they dished up, almost everyone disliked their meal.

    Scott reckons:

    Chips were fantastic and there was lots of them but it's a bummer they put them under the parma. Luckily the Salad (also great) comes in a separate bowl so you can quickly recover some plate space and move the parma off them. The parma itself is huge but the sauce was extremely bland and so the overall taste wasn't exciting.

    -1 point for the fact it was a $21 parma, the veggies were terrible and the worst part it was $4.80 for a pot of beer! (not a scooner - a pot!) That's absurd! I heard they have just undergone renovations but it still doesn't excuse the fact it was a $21 parma and a $4.80 beer! Mind you it was quite a tasty parma although not overly hot. (always nice to have ham on a parma too - not everybody is doing it these days) The chips great however not a huge portion. And the veggies.... Wow. Now i know it's supposed to be Parma/chips/salad combo but i felt like a change last night and went for the veggies....big mistake. They were frozen veggies - soggy and not even hot. On the whole an ok experience however quite frankly too expensive for what you're getting. (it'd want to be phenominal for a $21 parma!)
