Nice welcome, nice surroundings, nice atmosphere, nice service. Starters were meagre. 4 tiny scallops with a touch of green leaves. Well cooked, but certainly over-priced. Main courses were also a bit lacking & they had already sold out of some fish dishes (we 4 dined at 8.00 p.m.). My fish course was OK nothing more. Overall I would say it... More

Fabulous meal - the Chef knows his craft! Service is wonderful, not rushed and we were made to feel welcome. Desserts to die for!......... We will return...

A lovely restaurant with a relaxing atmosphere. We sat in one of the booths which is more private and a unique experience. The food was fresh and tasty and we enjoyed our meal fully.

Small and friendly restaurant. Book early though as not too many tables. We have lovely freshly caught fish!

This place offers a small menu selection of seafoods and a couple of non-seafood dishes. Although the fish selection was decent, the dishes could do with better seasonning.

Meat and fish eaters seemed very happy with Le Bistro but they don't cater for vegetarians. Because I was staying at the Heatherville they cooked a special dish for me which was very kind of them but it was not very appetising and showed they're just not used to catering for veggies. But I'm sure it's a very good restaurant... More

Really good seafood (and other choices) with as much as possible sourced locally. Friendly staff. Need to book as was very busy.
