Tasty Dishes

In a side street with other eateries. This unit is quite good and efficient with quite a choice of foods. The service was good and friendly and well worth a visit. They were prepared to vary my order from the "set" menu which I found very helpful

Dean treated us like royalty he did not remember us from a few years previous for which we were thankful. His attentive... More

The steak was cooked exactly how you asked and the sauces were lovely. We loved how there was a selection of deserts which were home made, the strawberry tart... More

Last September we ate at Deans Bistro on our last night in Egypt. It was a brilliant end to the holiday. Great food, music, company and atmosphere.

I planed to eat at the Lantern and showed up at 4:30PM because earlier I checked their big sign that said open at 4PM but it ended up being 6PM. So I went two doors down to Dean's Bistro good service and spotless with open kitchen the food was nice and served promptly

Nice little bistro with a small menu and the food quality is excellent; being frequent visitors to Dean's the menu hasnt changed very much in years and the atmosphere/ambience can be a little disappointing at times.
