Wonderful Experience

A cosy little gem in Lynmouth. Service was first class and very friendly and the food wonderful. Cannot recommend highly enough and we will return next time in Lynmouth.

Nothing wrong about Le Bistro but just a bit dull. In a quiet part of town and maybe that reflects on the restaurant, about 10 other diners when we went but lacking in atmosphere, Food was a bit bland for our taste. Nothing to dislike about it but with a bit more energy in the ambience and the food it... More

Been here a few times over the years as the food is superb and the staff are friendly and efficient - with food portions proving very generous and yet it would be rude not to have a dessert afterwards! If you are in the area and want high quality food at very reasonable prices - Le Bistro is hard to... More

We loved this place. It has a really nice feel to it. The meal was first class and the waitress friendly and interested. Would certainly recommend it and hope to return if in the area again.

Had a great meal here with friends after a long walk during the day. The staff were friendly and very welcoming and the restaurant itself is quite cosy and delightfully decorated. We all had different things to eat from the menu and no complaints at all. The salted caramel ice cream was yummy. I'd definitely have this again.

We visited Le Bristro last night (22 August) on a very wet, miserable evening. The staff were very welcoming and the ambience cosy and relaxing. We had a lovely meal and the wine was excellent. Wishing the new owners good luck with their new venture and look forward to spending an evening there again on our next visit to Lynmouth

We have been staying at the same hotel in Lynmouth on a full DB&B tariff for nearly twenty years. However, this year our usual hotel was closed and we stayed at another one nearby on a B&B only tariff. So this was the opportunity to try out other local restaurants for the first time. We were not disappointed.The choice and... More

Felt very welcomed as a solo diner. The waitress was very friendly and attentive. Cosy little restaurant, wasn't very busy on the night I went. They give you olives and a warm bread roll to start which I thought was lovely. I had the vegetarian pancake which came with veggies, and then the brownie. Both were very nice but not... More

We wanted somewhere to end our week and being a bit of a cook myself it's really hard to find a restaurant that lives up to what I like. This little place did not disappoint in any way. Lovely couple running this place now and the food is great. Steak done to perfection as were all the other dishes. Thanks... More
