A great place for food and dancing!

They seem to have just reopened in a more convenient place. Prices are cheap and food quality is more than expected. Owners are truly dedicated to their customers and speak English, French and Spanish. Wonderful ambiance. Luscious garden in the back. Enough close to Dominical to go dancing on... read more

This is an outdoor bar/lounge surrounded by the gorgeous rain forest and a little River. Tom is the owner and you couldn't find a nicer down to earth guy! We went here a few times and had excellent service and lots of laughs. The staff is awesome and it's a great place to have a few drinks, snacks and kick... More

Le Bistro is a great outdoor restaurant in the heart of Ojochal with a very laid back feel. Their tampas were excellent and we would certainly return when visiting Ojochal in the future. The management is very accommodating and friendly.

The food was delicious and not over priced like a lot of other restaurants in Ojochal, the service was excellence and the new bigger place is very nice and relaxing. Everyone is very friendly and makes you feel welcome. The Friday night entertainment is great for dancing and/or just listening to the music. We frequent this restaurant often durning our... More

They seem to have just reopened in a more convenient place. Prices are cheap and food quality is more than expected. Owners are truly dedicated to their customers and speak English, French and Spanish. Wonderful ambiance. Luscious garden in the back. Enough close to Dominical to go dancing on Friday’s. We had a really good time!

The food was average, it took over 2 hours to receive our main course, and there was nothing in the way of an apology. After a night with a bout of food poisoning on top of this, I'd advise you to steer clear of this restaurant.

Absolutely love this place! Their Friday night DJ and dancing is an absolute blast - it's a great way to have some drinks and meet both locals and travelers alike. Throughout the rest of the week, they offer a tasty menu with a relaxed atmosphere and friendly service. It's easy to find right off the main thoroughfare as well. Don't... More

I came to Le Bistro covered in sweat from a run. Instantly my server spotted me and offered a glass of water before even seating me or asking if I was here for lunch which I was. After bringing the waiter she offered to make a fresh fruit smoothie (not on the menu) to help with my rehydration efforts. Once... More

Le Bistro is a very nice and relaxed place to grab a bite to eat and have a cold beer. I did have a Banana Margarita that was the best and refreshing margarita that I ever had. We eat both lunch and dinner their and stopped several time for a nice cold drink in the afternoon. The food is excellent... More

If you travel then you know that the best places are where the locals go. Le Bistro is that place. The food is great, the atmosphere comfortable and the staff are warm, friendly and always up for conversation in English, French, Spanish or a mix of all three as tends to happen on Friday nights when the place is in...
