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.

You can follow the signs here from anywhere on Antigua and I suggest you do. Wonderful French cuisine in a charming, fine dining atmosphere. A nice bar is available plus rum tastings too. But save room for the desserts! Highly recommend.

We were fed up with our all inclusive hotel and decided to come here. It was a bit like stepping back in to the 80's but the food and service were very good - solid.

We came here last year and loved it. Decided to try again this year and has surpassed our expectations. The menu marries local produce with top quality cooking to produce excellent food. A more 'up market' restaurant that manages to make you feel comfortable whilst enjoying fabulous food. Definately recommend !

We were recommended Le Bistro by our hotel during our recent stay in Antigua as we were looking for somewhere special to dine for my Mum’s birthday. We were welcomed by the host Philippa and the barman who prepared drinks for us before we headed to the table. The menu had an excellent variety of dishes which were executed to... More

I have been traveling to Antigua for 30 years for vacation an Le Bistro is the first and last restaurant I visit. Even if you are staying at an all inclusive, treat yourself and visit this world class restaurant. Chef Patrick has a menu to die for and his partner and hostess Philipa makes all the deserts fresh. The service... More

It's difficult to know what to say about Le Bistro that hasn't been said so many times before by others. The superb: service, food, ambience, rum punches ("the best on the island "), welcome, friendliness of Phillipa and Patrick and their staff, surroundings etc etc. have all been mentioned on numerous occasions. Having been twice during our holiday last year,... More

We've been trying to get here for some time so we fixed up a babysitter from Swalings and booked. What a lovely place. We had champagne on arrival - the perfect way to start an evening. My husband started with lobster cocktail and I had foie gras and scallop salad which were delicious. For my main course I had lobster... More
