Excellent food and great value

Have been meaning to try this place for a while but thought it might be too expensive or pretentious rest assured it's neither. We had duck terrine and beef borgignon with well cooked veg. The beef was lovely with a rich gravy and no fat or gristle at all, it had been expertly trimmed. My partner... read more

Good location, nice atmosphere, but very noisy when busy. Service and staff OK. The pork was delicious, and the vegetables were good, but the lamb was inedible. We weren't charged for the lamb.

We ate here with a group of friends and the food was absolutely wonderful. A great choice on the menu. The service was excellent and we will definitely be retuning next time we are up this way.

been here a few times after discovering it a little while ago and it never fails to impress. The decor is lovely, the staff really friendly and the food is simply gorgeous. We like that you can have a coffee or work through the menu - you are welcomed whatever.

Visiting Skipton to meet friends from York; they suggested somewhere else, we suggested Les Bistro after reading reviews and were not disappointed, neither were our friends. Enjoyed good value food, in a nice atmosphere, well served and spent an excellent couple of hours here. Will definitely be back.

A visit to Skipton was on the cards so where to have lunch? Having read the reviews for this restaurant I booked online. A vile, rainy day and a leaking barbour had me in less than jovial humour. Upon entering the restaurant we were warmly greeted with smiles from the very pleasant staff who whisked us upstairs to the restaurant.... More

This in a French restaurant but surprisingly they do excellent traditional English Sunday lunches. We went for a second time last weekend. The roast beef was sirloin, cooked to perfection, with all the trimming including an excellent Yorkshire pudding. Others had roast pork, with some really 'crackerly' crackling. The waiter service is excellent with plenty of humour. There is a... More

It oozes a owner who cares and a chef who knows what they are doing. I was visiting Skipton for the day and fancied a nice pub lunch. After walking past a few pubs with people eating chicken nuggets and chips Le Bistro des Amis was a wonderful find! The restaurant decor is lovely and the food on the menu... More
