Upon entering the restaurant, you’ll experience a real sense of occasion and a heartfelt welcome. Be prepared to enjoy the elegant, tropical surroundings of the dining room and bar. The atmosphere is both irresistibly alluring and beautifully romantic. Relax and enjoy a seamless dinner, complete with a supremely polished and personalized service from your host Philippa and the rest of the staff. It will be hard to choose from the medley of outstanding cuisine, but the Antiguan lobster dishes come highly recommended. The handcrafted desserts are always to die for and genuine wine lovers will be impressed with the superb range of French vintages and Champagne.

Absolutely worth a visit!

Le Bistro is definitely quaint and oozing with atmosphere. Not really so sure about the French character of the menu as most of the offerings seemed to be more "eclectic" than French but nonetheless an interesting menu with food that was adequately well prepared and tasty.

Great quaint little restaurant supplying the best food on the island. The owners always make a fuss for out of towners. Try their scallops, the best I've ever tried.

Delicious food. Great atmosphere. Came back to Antigua to renew our wedding vows. Got engaged here 12 years ago, and a meal at Le Bistro was where we celebrated our engagement all that time ago. The meal was fabulous then, and our return didn't disappoint!

Visited this after reading a couple reviews here on trip advisor and they didn't disappoint. My analogy for Le Bistro would be your very friendly neighbour who happens to be a 5 star French chef who uses the finest ingredients and won't let you leave until you are happy and full. The decor is that of a cosy bistro intimate... More

My wife and I always eat here at least once or twice when when stay on Antigua and have never been disappointed in all our many visits over the last 15 years. Superbly cooked food together with a romantic location and attentive staff always makes for an excellent evening.

I went here for my birthday and had such high hopes, and I was very disappointed. I made a reservation a week in advance and confirmed the morning of. Upon arrival the waitress was either confused or they did not have my reservation. We were seated in a bad area, no lighting. extremely close to the bathroom and close to... More

Every dish we had was very high quality and delicious, i would definitely recommend the steak and the vegetarian pasta. The dessert trolly was also extremely tempting and did not disappoint. The portions are really generous and I struggled to finish... More

It's a little out of the way - liked the wine and dessert, the chicken texture not so much. Still a good culinary experience.
