I love this place. I've been here lots of times, for parties, romantic meals, family meals, you name it. The food is rustic French fayre, beautifully presented, and nothing is too much trouble for the staff. The ambiance is lovely; low-key French jazz plays and there's an authentic bistro feel. There's a small but interesting wine list and some great... More

I have reviewed this delightful Anglo/French restaurant on numerous occasions. It never ceased to delight. The food is superb with attention to detail. 2 or 3 courses lunchtime special is as good as any 5 star restaurant and the Bistro des Amis stands alone for excellence.

We enjoyed a lovely meal last night from the Sunday menu. The roast beef was just amazing and cooked to our preference. It's not the most extensive menu, but something for everyone. Nice chilled out atmosphere. Worth a visit for something a bit different!

Just had a great meal at Le Bistro des Amis. It's been on our wishlist for some time, and was well worth the wait. We enjoyed a brief pre dinner drink in the cosy downstairs bistro, before being guided up to the restaurant for dinner. The ploughman's platter of French charcuterie and fromage was excellent, all the expected classics were... More

The staff were very good,they found us a nice table for 2 upstairs. There were only 2 other tables occupied when we arrived but it wasn't long before the others filled up.... More
