I booked this for my partners birthday on Saturday evening, based on the trip advisor rating and we were not disappointed. He had Scallops to start and venison for main and was thrilled with both. I had the Salmon Gravadlax and braised or shoulder of lamb (can't remember which) - both were absolutely delicious. We shared a cheese board and,... More

We went to Le Bistro des Amis for a meal for my wife's birthday, but we only had an hour and a half for dinner as we were eating while my son was at a party. The food was excellent and the service also pleasant, quick and suitably unobtrusive. The cold meat platter starter was lovely as was the gravadlax.... More

Spent my 65th birthday celebration here with my wife youngest daughter and her husband. The first impression was good, warm with a real French feel, this impression was further enhanced by the smile and enthusiasm of the lovely waitress Ellie, who was a credit to the staff. The food was excellent, we all opted for the tiger prawns starter and... More

The bistro has a real French authenticity, the food is great bistro fare, and the portions are generous. The bistro is really good value, and a gem amongst some very lacklustre offerings in the vicinity.

Back to The Bistro for lunch today and I can honestly say there is no where else I would rather go. Lovely pleasant friendly staff, warm welcoming ambience and excellent food. We chose the leek and potato soup ( it's getting to that time of the year for a soup starter), my husband had chicken breast in a delicious sauce... More

Very good classical cooking. Cassoulet was one of the best meals I've had in a long time and the venison was divine. V.impressed will definitely be back

Our party of six enjoyed good food and service last night. The extensive menu offered a wide selection of dishes and we all enjoyed our choices. One of our group needed gluten-free food and she was accommodated without fuss. The staff were attentive and friendly and I recommend this restaurant to anyone in the Skipton area.

I had really looked forward to my meal out at this restaurant. Sadly, it was a forgettable experience. The "nibbles" course (mini sausages) was the best. The rare beef entree "read" well but was dull. Of the ingredients in the cassoulet the sausage was tastiest. The beans and duck were nothing special. The coffee was outright poor. Mind you, others...

And Merry Christmas to you too!!!! Thanks Angloteton for this little review! Just what I ordered!
