Each dish was succulent, satisfying, and served in timely fashion. We are fortunate, indeed, to have this quality of food and service here in New Glasgow. We... read more

The food and service are first rate. The menu is not too extensive which allows for expert preparation. Food was hot and presentation was excellent. This family owned restaurant is a must for visitors to New Glasgow.

This was my second visit to The Bistro for a team dinner with my office, about a dozen of us. Once again, I was more than impressed by the atmosphere, the service, the pace, and most importantly the delicious food from a chef and kitchen clearly taking pride in every plate they put out. Tonight I started with a garden... More

Wonderful surprise. Everything was so tasty! From the terrific bruccehettua (and goat cheese salad) as starters to the shepherds pie and the fishes. The service here was exceptional. Good malbec red wine. The chocolate pecan pie for dessert.

It is always a family favourite to visit The Bistro on Archimedes Street. Whenever we come to town, my wife likes to get there at least once. Menu selections are simple but satisfying and the service is second to none. Rob and Heather are running a first class operation.

As part of our regular annual family visits to New Glasgow a visit to The Bistro is always on the agenda. Our last visit confirmed this choice. This is great place for family and friends to enjoy well prepared meals served in the most hospitable manner. The ambience supports the sharing of a memorable experience which encourages return visits.

We had a wonderful meal at the Bistro last night. It started with a friendly welcome and warm atmosphere. There were a great mix of locals and visitors, and service was attentive but not oppressive. It was quiet enough for a romantic conversation. Food was delicious, with lots of healthy alternatives. A+!
