We purchased a voucher for a 3 course meal, to include a glass of wine from London Theatre Bookings. It proved to be a good call. We liked the decor, and the food was all absolutely excellent.

Attracted in to the Restaurant as we were walking by, lovely lighting and the menu offered items we liked. They were running a 2 course evening special which certainly appealed to us so we decided to give them a go. The staff were attentive, smartly dressed and really did try. We had a starter and a main course. We both... More

Had a lovely pre-theatre meal, very good value for money and attentive service. Bistro is nothing fancy and you won't pay fancy prices either. Would dine here again

Have visited this "chain" numerous times, and always have a great meal here. On this visit I had the fried brie to start, which was delicious and came with a raspberry sauce. As a main I ordered the calamari which was ok; it was a large serving that had tasty salad and chips - although the calamari was a little... More

Bistro 1 offered a 2 course and 3 course meal , we have visited twice in two days and both times delighted with the food and the service. Their... More

Visited on Tuesday before Christmas during our whistle stop tour of London. A lovely setting very cosy. The choice of food was extensive from the two course offer at a reasonable price. I had Spiced Turkey sausages followed by Home made Lamb Burger & chips. All for a value for money £8:50 and if you wanted to turn it in... More

We like to meet friends and family here. One of a small chain of four restaurants offering a great two course lunch for much less that a tenner! Unmatchable in London's expensive West End, Bistro 1 never fail to delight due to its professional and friendly staff, its excellent wine list, and its sheer value for money.

This is the third time I have been to this restaurant when coming to London to see a show , each time with different people. Everyone I went with to the Bistro has been really pleased with the choice and price on the menu. My starter of Moules Mariniere was more like a main and was delicious. My main was,... More

From the start this bistro was terrific, service, the food and the price, £8. 95 for two courses ,faultless. If like me you like Mediterranean food then this is the place to get stuck in. Bon appetite.
