Went with a colleague and was impressed by the wait staff and the selection of food and beverage in a small town, Would visit more often if I lived closer.

There was a group of 4 adults. We went for lunch . We were greeted with the friendliest waitress second to none. She certainly made us feel welcome. I had the special of the day which was a wrap.

The Bistro East has a warm inviting atmosphere. The food is very good and the prices are reasonable. The service however can be painfully slow. Don't go if you want a quick lunch.

I was so impressed with the speed and cheery disposition of our waitress when 10 of us arrived for lunch on a Saturday afternoon. Food was great too.

The food was so good, we went back a second time and enjoyed it as much as the first. A must when visiting Annapolis Royal.
