Took the grown up children for breakfast and were not disappointed at the Michelin quality and presentation at Cafe prices. A place I would definitely recommend and well worth travelling for. The views of the Dee are excellent.

I have been here 5 times now, but this is my 1st review. Great location. Great staff. Great food. My delicious homemade veggie burger came with real chips and fresh salad. The bistro was nearly full, order taken quickly, food and drinks came quickly, so good service all round. GLAD to see "CASH ONLY" sign, nothing iffy at all, this... More

This is the second time I have been here and both times have been excellent. Its sits on the river so you can see the river if you get a window seat. Nicely decorated and warm. Nice cosy feel to it. I ordered a sweet chilli chicken melt and my other half ordered a cheese and ham panini with diet... More

i went to the Dee Side Bistro yesterday for a very late lunch. We were seated overlooking the river which had great views and the restaurant was warm on a cold day. Good menu with great selection for every mood. I chose scampi and was not disappointed. The dish was appetising and well presented. We visited at a quiet time... More

Right on the edge of the river dee, this place serves a huge range of really good home made food - everything from burgers, pies, curry and pasta dishes. All at a very low price. Also managed to accommodate our party of 13 at very last minute. Thanks!

Came here for lunch on a freezing cold day and it really hit the spot. The cafe is in a great location, with views of the river. It's warm and inviting and the staff were very friendly, providing quick and efficient service. The menu is very extensive and has a range of food catering for different dietary requirements and tastes.... More

Food is good value for money, however we were sent out on two occasions because the Owner does not accept card payments of any sort. A 'Cash only' sign is not displayed, well we certainly couldn't see one, and it's not ideal asking customers to trot down the road to the nearest cash point after the bill has come. Bit... More

Visited this weekend. Good points: steak at a good price and prices not bad Generally speaking. Views are good looking out onto the river. The cornmill has better views but this one is still lovely. Food is nice for the price. Bad: wine not cheap CASH ONLY! What a stupid system, can only assume something dodgy with money is going... More
