I went with a group of friends for dinner...our night here started off well.... Very few customers in. Our problem began when the customers at the other table finished their meal and left. We were still eating our main course. No sooner had we put down our cutlery than the plates were whisked away and dessert menus thrown at us.... More

Have been here three or four times and each time the food was excellent and great value for money. I had the steak twice and it was cooked exactly as I asked on both occassions. Huge portions given, especially with the surf and turf. We had to bring a doggy bag home. The staff are very friendly and attentive. The... More

Bertie's was recommended to us on our visit to the Wicklow area. While it was a little hard to locate, we were delighted once we were there. While it is small cozy restaurant, my husband and I enjoyed delicous meals. Wow! My salmon florentine over mashed potatoes was a huge portion as was my husbands dish. Plus they served us... More

We found Bertie's Bistro by accident. This is a small intimate restaurant on the 1st & 2nd floors of a building in the centre of Wicklow town. We had got in early enough to be offered "the couple's special" - 3 course dinner for two and a bottle of house wine for 50 euro. We choose the house white and... More

Visited Bertie's last Friday. Once again we were not let down. The ambience, the service and the food all combined to make it a very enjoyable night. WE have been to this restaurant several times, in groups and on our own and each time we have left feeling well satiated. This time there were four of us and although we... More

Thank you Bertie! My family and I have been privileged to eat in Bertie's Bistro on several occasions now and the experience is excellent as always. I have recommended to all my friends promoting the lamb shank, which is to die for! I love the rosemary that adds the perfect flavour as the meat effortlessly falls off the bone. The... More

Have visited a number of times and am not impressed with the staff not having their hair tied back, the staff are not very attentive to their customers and they could smile sometimes, you also have to wait too long when you have ordered a drink. Food wise the duck is not tender enough and the steaks are not cooked... More

I was going to review this after my first visit but this would have been unfair as after my second visit this has gone from simply terrible to just poor. There are a number of reasons for this, the staff are not very good, inattentive, miserable and poorly trained. The food, the measure of any restaurant is OK, edible, not... More

Unfortunately, the recession has not been kind to Wicklow Town with the result that many of the well known eateries have closed since last year. Bertie's Bistro has survived - so we decided to check it out. We booked a table at 19.30 so the Early Bird was not available. Our table was on the second floor for which we... More

My children and I found this to be wonderful "first contact" with Ireland. The food was excellent as was the service. Everyone that we had contact with during our time there was friendly and especially helpful. Considering the fact that we were not sure what some of the items were on the menu we were very thankful for the added... More
