Finally found this restaurant, which had been recommended, and ate there on our last two evenings. The service was great. The filet steaks with chips and salad to die for at a good price. You have to make a reservation. Tucked away so not near the busy main road. Strongly recommend.

We visit this restaurant at Baga beach. Spend time at sunset. After sunset candles lighted and nice music on. Really great feeling. Food also tasty, service is good. Best time is evening at sunset.

Went there on a sunday afternoon. We are veggies but the options were reasonably good. The red salad was great and so was the Thai red curry. The portions were a tad underwhelming (lost a point). The staff were courteous and prompt.

For some reason or other we never managed to get back to The Bistro last year, but went again tonight. The meal was absolutely perfect. Party of three and we had seared king prawns, french onion soup, bruchetta for starters. Mains were Surf and Turf, Roasted Chicken and Bacon and Strips of Beef. We also ordered a side order of...

Fantastic, the food, the staff and the ambience. The tables are set apart so you have privacy, no nterference from other diners or the background music. Great place for a romantic meal

Went there for the first time whilst on holiday based on trip advisor rating and was not disappointed. The meal was delicious and the steak served cooked exactly as requested. Surroundings could have been improved, but service was first class. Will definitely be back before the end of our holiday!

visited this restaurant on the last day of our holiday. My husband had a lovely fillet steak that was slightly over cooked hence 4 stars but lovely tender and tasty. I had the chicken with spring onion mash, it was one of the best dishes I had in a restaurant during my 2 week stay. The atmosphere is lovely, the... More
