Varied menu, tasty food, reasonable prices, nice setting, but service was slow. The explanation we got was that they were breaking in a new cook.

The appetizers are usually very good but the meals often tend to disappoint and are on the pricier side for what they are

This is a first class restaurant in a suburban town. The food, service, & contemporary atmosphere are all first class. Expect to pay above average.

If you're looking for some real Mediterranean fare, this is a great place with an even better price point. The foul mudamas is a fantastic appetizer, and their salads with homemade greek dressing are amazing. Only complaint: sandwiches on pita are often dry - ask for dressing to go with!

We were in Marblehead on March 23 2013 and looking for a lunch place. We happened upon Le Bistro-what a delightful find! We have traveled extensively and had Mediterranean food in many places. This was undoubtedly some of the best ever. The lightest most delectable Falafel- crispy on the outside and soft and light on the inside. The lentil soup... More

Le Bistro is located on a corner, perhaps four or five blacks from the historic Marblehead district. We were able to find a parking spot on an adjacent strret about 1/2 block away. We... More

Fantastic! I've lived and travelled a lot throughout the Mediterranean, Middle East, and Southwest Asia ... this is the real deal! Lebanese owner Salim and his server were exceptionally hospitable. Salim steered us right on a really nice Greek wine. Appetizers and main courses were authentically prepared, generously sized, and absolutely exquisite to the taste. Baklava and assorted pastries were... More

This well-run restaurant is in a tiny little storefront they turned into a cozy, simple but pleasing, dining establishment. I meet friends here for lunch and we do take-out a lot as well. As expected, their middle eastern food is very good, my family likes the shiskabob dinners, the grilled vegetable roll ups and the hummus/babganoush/tabouli/falafel plate but the biggest... More
