We spent a very enjoyable Saturday evening here with friends. The restaurant was full, which is a good sign in itself.

I had been searching for a place to celebrate my fiance's birthday and I kept hearing great things about this particular restaurant from both people I know and online reviews. The price was a little higher than we usually go for, so my family saved a little money beforehand to be able to go. I called and booked a table... More

This is one of a group of four local bistros of the same name, and this one's French heritage seems to be limited to the several old enamel signs randomly displayed. Full marks for offering vegan dishes and listing over 2 dozen wines available by the glass as well as another 15 or so the bottle. Less good was the... More

Excellent French restaurant, not pretentious, just really good food and wine. Friendly and efficient service. I recommend downstairs seating in the cellars for atmosphere.

Le Mistral was recommended to us as a restaurant that would cook vegan food. The staff knew what vegan was and checked with the chef which meals were suitable. I had the choice of 2 main courses off the menu and one of the specials. I chose the special and it was delicious! For desert there was a choice of... More

Very friendly staff and very good, reasonably priced menu. We wouldn't normally go to a French restaurant but it was recommended by Tim at The Old Lockup and was less than 10 minutes walk away - so no driving!v

Visited in the evening before and always been excellent. Visited today for lunch - excellent food and service. Took friends who had not been before, they really enjoyed the food and ambience (downstairs). Be mindful of dishes not included in the lunch time deal, worth checking.
