Service was great but for those prices I expect more than some (fresh) plainly cooked fish and vegetables. Nice convenient location for the beach and parking.

We had a meal at Le Bistro on the last night of our holiday in Lynmouth. My wife had a fish dish and I had the steak. Although we felt it was a bit pricey the food was excellent as was the service Would recommend.

A little out of the village so we haven't been there on previous visits. However we gave it a try this time. It proved to be a real find. Fabulous food, friendly staff, great value for money. Will definitely go there again.

Fabulous unpretentious meal with really fresh fish excellently prepared. Friendly staff who looked after us really well. Decor and ambience really nice too. Only open Thursday-Saturday evenings which is a shame. Menu not extensive but well thought out too.

Had the supposedly French fish soup, will not call by proper name. The fish itself really good but the soup base thin and poor. If you are doing simple cooking do it right!!!!

Simple, no frills cooking of excellent fresh locally caught fish. Not unduly expensive and no silly pretensions. Friendly, informal staff.

I loved the wine and the food was cooked well and tasted delicious! We had Chicken as I fancied Lobster but they did not have it. My partner tried scallops for the first time and loved them!

My fiancée and I were celebrating our engagement so my opinion may be slightly biased, but the food and wine was excellent, the service friendly and professional and the atmosphere was very cosy. Be sure to book in advance on a Friday/Saturday as they were full and it wasn't even tourist season yet.
