Our party of 4 arrived eagerly looking forward to a great night of local seafood and were not disappointed. The lobster and the sea trout were terrific. The service was friendly and efficient. Can't wait to return.

8 girls/ladies on a weekend break to celebrate a 60th birthday . Because of the number in our party we booked well in advance. Sparkles put on the table and Proseeco ordered in for us. The owners very friendly and attentive

Called in on a quiet Sunday afternoon for a cuppa ... but then saw Craster Kippers on the menu so had to give in to temptation. Glad I did. Lovely meal, tea, surroundings and staff. A real treat.

We had previously visited Alnmouth several times and had morning coffee and afternoon tea at Bistro 23. When walking past the venue during the day we were attracted to the Evening Meal set Menu. We booked and were very pleasantly surprised by our experience. There was quite an intimate feel to the restaurant... We arrived early and were given a... More

I don't think I've ever been anywhere where the waitresses (they were all female) were genuinely so smiley! Every table they approached they smiled at everyone every time! We went for a cup of tea during the very busy Alnmouth Arts Festival on the Saturday just after lunch. Great selection of teas, some out of the ordinary. Lovely tea cosy's!... More

We followed the Trip advisor recommendation and visited Bistro 23 on 18th June. Booking on the phone gave a clue, lovely helpful person. The place was full and we were surrounded by people, openly making remarks such as ' excellent ' ' the best I have ever eaten' and the like. Bistro 23 has a straight forward approach, 5 Starters,...

Three of us enjoyed a lovely meal at Bistro 23 on 18 June in a full restaurant buzzing with chatter. A lovely atmosphere. The service from the two owners was friendly and attentive without any fuss and the gaps between courses were just right. The food was excellent. We each had different dishes across three courses, so from a short... More

It was a real treat to have a meal out that was better than I could cook myself. That is not because I am some sort of Masterchef but more about the lack of attention given to veggie food. The meal I had was really tasty and looked attractive, my husband looked relieved as usually I look so disappointed with... More

Living locally we have been meaning to eat at the Bistro for a long time but as only open in the evening on Wednesday and Saturday and as booking in advance essential we never seemed to plan far enough in advance. So the visit of friends for the weekend prompted us to do so. We were not disappointed! The food... More

Booked here for a special meal on the basis of Tripadvisor reviews. We were not disappointed- the food and service were both excellent and the restaurant was full. We were so impressed that we booked again for the following Wednesday- try the herby rack of lamb- delicious!!
