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+!

Scallops, steak second to none. Service excellent also. Place busy with a Christmas party, but never affected service. Highly recommend.

First time back to this restaurant in a while, service was excellent, food was well presented and tasty. The only thing about this location is the environment is a tad crowded for my liking, that aside the food is always good the specials were good value for the money.

I really enjoyed the quiet and romantic setting in this restaurant and the food was incredibly good! I ordered the tomato feta soup which was delicious and the beef tenderloin with peppercorn sauce was perfect! The crème brulee dessert was also much loved!! We enjoyed this restaurant as a couple but it would also be great for celebrations as there... More
