A best kept secret in Marblehead

The food, delicious middle eastern cuisine, never disappoints. The owner is a delight. Outgoing and quite friendly. He's only topped by the food . . . Hummus, babaganoush, falafel, lamb chops . . . all excellent!

The food we had was excellent. Cuisine is Mediterranean. Had a very good shrimp dish with spinach and mushrooms in a tomato sauce served over rice. Kabobs were also excellent. Service was a little slow but quite pleasant. Only drawback is that the tables are quite close together.

This is a great cute little place. Quiet romantic setting and great food. Wee have brought the kids with us a few times (teenagers) and they feel there's a great selection for them too. Owner is very hospitable and the prices are fair, especially since the food is so good.

The food is fresh and tasty. The hummus is home made and fluffy served with warm pita bread. The stuffed grape leaves are warm and freshly made. The Bistro Platter is an appetizer but I had it as my meal since it includes a bit of everything. My partner had the Shwarna chicken and said it was tasty. It came... More

Lamb kabobs to die for. No frills, no real, atmosphere but good friendly service and food. Portions very adequate. Out side tables in summer. Always GOOD. Good take out also.

Food has been largely the same for years --- and that is good. Everything is fresh, presented beautifully and the pricing is terrific. Soups are made from scatch. The restaurant (and kitchen in back) is emaculate --- and that is saying something after being there for 10 years or more. Owners care about what they do -- and it shows

Le Bistro has pleased many of us that need a sit down for a Fatoosh salad or something out of the ordinary. The service is great. this is a convenient spot located in the 5 corners district.

While the name of the restaurant might make you think otherwise, this is Middle Eastern / Lebanese fare. Everything we had was delicious, prepared with care and served with a smile. Not sure if our server was the owner but he clearly had passion about the food and our dining experience. Nice variety of dishes and cozy atmosphere. Stop in... More

Love Le Bistro. For a small town, it is the only junction in Marblehead that serves a credible middle eastern fare among the surf and turf restaurants, Although the place is quite small, nevertheless, I'm glad that we have a healthy option.Try babaganoush and falafel...delicious.
