Monday night dinner

Came here on our first night in Annapolis Royal. Was very quiet on a Monday but enjoyed a beer and a delicious seafood pasta dish. Staff was extremely accommodating and friendly.

We stopped by this restaurant but regretted it. We were sweating within a few minutes (although when asked, a waiter said that the A/C was working just not good enough). We got menus and water right away, but we're about to leave when finally the waiter returned for our owner (in spite of the restaurant being at the end of... More

Food was delicious, generous, and very well prepared, the atmosphere was delightful, and the desserts were divine. But what really made it for us was the great service and hospitality. All the staff was very welcoming to our kids, very flexible and accommodating, and truly cared that we're having everything we needed. To top it all, their location is perfect.

As this bistro had been recommended to us we thought we would give it a try for lunch. We found the service to be good and the food to be excellent. In fact, it was good enough that we returned two days later for another wonderful lunch. Be sure and try the Quesadillas or as a previous contributor stated the... More

We happened upon this place after a long drive to AR. The service was a little underdone but the food was really good. We ordered three meals, but then changed one to a pizza - which they then made up incorrectly - so they gave it to us for free. The pizza was excellent - and the nachos were also... More

I frequently eat at Bistro and I have to say that this is my favourite place to eat in town. I recommend the Hawaiian pizza!

This is the place to be in Annapolis in the evening, it seems. The live music was excellent. The food was good and the service friendly.

Overall the restaurant was good. We enjoyed our food, especially the chowder and the lobster rolls. Our waitress did an adequate job, but she was not very outgoing.She took our order, brought our food and pretty much that was all until the bill. It's a cute place with an Italian feel and a good place for lunch.

A good menu of mainly locally-sourced food and area wines/beers. Smart waitstaff was helpful in making our selections. Live Music was unexpected. Diverse clientele, included families and couples. Plan ahead and make dinner reservations if you can. We were lucky that they had a table for two when we walked in.

Beautiful spot! The food was ok but not amazing. Our waitress I think might have been new as she was not overly interested in our table it seemed. This was made up for by the two other more experienced waitresses who ended up picking our table up when our waitress just didn't come back. They noticed that and came right... More
