Tiny, great for lunch

I've been here a few times. In nice weather, they have some outdoor cafe tables. Inside, it's like a 10 foot by 20 foot space with a handful of tables. The food is very good, just be aware that it's tiny. They have BYOB, so bringing a bottle of wine, and having good food is very inexpensive. I... read more

Cute setting, however, the menu was small. We enjoyed our lunch, but we wish we would have chosen somewhere that had more to choose from.

Gets overlooked as one of the best Nantucket restaurants. Mouthwatering food. I will order anything on their menu and be confident I will Iike it. Small inside space, limited seating. Outside seating weather permitting. I frequent for breakfast and lunch (you can also order to go and avoid the crowded dining area of its a busy day).

This is a very small Bistro on Nantucket island. it has a very limited seating. The food is excellent and the prices are very reasonable. They do not serve liquor but you are welcome to bring Beer Or wine and they will gracefully provide the set up. outdoor seating available in season

Food was good, and although the place is quite tiny, it was a nice atmosphere. I didn't think it was our absolute best food in Nantucket but it was something different. I appreciated that they were able to do the duck special as a half order so I could try some more appetizers. Would return.

I need to preface this by sharing that I have never provided any online reviews or feedback, but in this case the Centre Street Bistro exceeded any reasonable expectation. My wife and I had made a reservation for four. We were disappointed when informed that there had been some confusion and they would not be able to immediately seat us.... More

This place is small but worth the wait. We had a red curry coconut chicken roll with rice and julienne vegetables. It was large and simply delicious. The prices were reasonable. We also had a homemade soup which was tasty. This was our favourite restaurant in Nantucket. Highly recommend.

The restaurant itself is located at the back of a building with other small shops. It's VERY small inside and the tables are crammed together. The decor isn't really much to look at. In some cases small equals charming, but I didn't feel that here, I just felt smushed. We went for lunch. I ordered tomato soup, and it was... More

Potatoe Leek soup? Thick and heavy...not what I consider fine at all. Lobster risotto, interesting, appealing but not fine cuisine. Crispy chicken...'mediocre at best', dry. Certainly not a top 10 in this bountyland of excellent restaurants. Funky, eclectic, hot on a cool night....
