Gacious eating in a serene setting near Main St

Old deconsecrated church provides the "inn" part of this lovely establishment. Inside and outside on the grounds one can eat a very nice selection of interesting food. Good wine list. Presentation was superb. Service was a trifle slow, but the setting more than made up for it. A definite stop... read more

For a charming, romantic restaurant with great food, the Belfry is a lovely choice. High ceilings, gorgeous old stained glass windows and original church lights give this restaurant unique ambience. I recommend sitting on the second level, in the main part of the restaurant as it enhances the view & feeling dramatically. We both ordered the beef tenderloin which was... More

The Belfry Bistro is a very unique restaurant in Sandwich, Cape Cod, MA. The first time I entered the building was for a baptism. That's right, The Belfry is a converted Catholic church. The bar is where the pulpit was, etc. The ambiance is exceptional. The room maintains its stained glass and nooks and crannies from its incarnation as a... More

Ate at this lovely venue and enjoyed the fixed price menu. The service was good but we ate early so it wasn't busy. The flat iron steak served with a foie gras flavour gave it an almost sour taste as if the meat was off. Not a great combination in my opinion.

For a delicious and unique fine dining experience, enjoy dinner at the Belfry Bistro. An old Catholic church converted into an elegant bistro, you can enjoy a wonderful meal and enjoy the stained glass windows and soaring ceilings or enjoy a more informal meal in the garden. Reservations are recommended. The Summer antipasto with salami, hummus, eggplant, cheeses, salad was... More

We've been to the Belfry Bistro for dinner a number of times as well as the Sunday brunch. Brunch trumps dinner. However, the kitchen is very, very slow, even when the restaurant is not crowded. It's not unusual to wait an hour between the time you arrive and the time your appetizers appear at the table. Entrees fare no better.... More

Lively dining spot on a quiet street. Formerly a Catholic church, the interior has been beautifully tranformed into the bistro. Quite elegant. Service excellent as is the food. Dined on duck with delicious noodles, and Cape Cod bouillabaisse. Both were cooked perfectly. Shared a chocolate molten cake with vanilla ice cream - moist and creamy.

A 'fine-dining' experience in Sandwich. Although not advertised, they have a 'kids menu'. Relatively expensive but a great place to eat for that special meal.

We all ordered something different, salmon, rabbit, haddock and crab cakes, and we were all pleases with our dinners. The appetizers of clam chowder and Caesar salads were well made with just the right amount of seasoning. The service was excellent and the atmosphere very nice.
