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.

If you want to be pampered and served the finest food on the island french style this is the place. It's a little out of the way but if you find it the night is magical and of course a relaxing island vibe!

While on a family vacation in Antigua I was able to arrange a date with my wife to what we were told was widely considered "the best restaurant on the island". Upon arriving, the restaurant was beautiful, island themed with subtle hints of Southern (US) charm. The service was impeccable, our waiter had been at the restaurant for 30 years!... More

Le Bistro is a pretty restaurant, but for the top dollar you pay, the food is not very exciting. We started with Merlin Carpaccio and Crab Cakes (both cEC$40) and followed with Sea Scallops (EC$82) and Lobster (EC$100). All the dishes were workmanlike but no better. The wines are pretty expensive, so we ordered a bottle of the house white... More

we have been here many times in the past. We were here last Saturday for a quick bite. Unfortunately, despite wanting just a main course each you can't actually do that. I had a prawn daily special appetiser which was excellent followed by a catch of the day mahi mani. My partner was stoic in passing on the appetiser and... More

My young teen daughter and I had dinner here last week. The decor was fine, the hostess aloof but polite, the waitstaff friendly enough. After our salads and hors d'oeuvres, we could only make it through half of our main courses, which we asked to take away. After paying for our bill, the staff seemed too busy to bring back... More

This was our 2nd visit to Le Bistro, as we dined here last year while on holiday. It's an amazing restaurant. The quality of the food is excellent and service can't be faulted. Staff very friendly. Can highly recommend the crepe suzette for dessert ....best ever!

We ( party of 4) traveled from our all inclusive resort just to try this place. It was highly recommended to us by several locals that we must try this restaurant. Well, naturally we had high expectations with all of the hype we received. Its a small, cute restaurant with great ambiance. The service was excellent, the drinks were good.... More

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. If I am holding back a bit in the food department well yes, it... More

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!
