Great rib steak!!

we were very hungry the night we arrived to this island after long drive, saw everyone eating big chunk of steak. We took the table without hesitation. The steak was perfectly cooked, juicy and moist.

My husband and I had lunch at Le Bistro Marin and enjoyed the food and the ambiance. Right on the harbor, watching the boats come in and out, while dining on the freshest seafood we have ever had!

Just back from this bistro, from outside it looks like just a bar and very unassuming, but don't be fooled - step inside and it's a full restaurant. Tonight Bob Marley was playing full blast. Our waitress (short blonde hair) was superb - prompt and accommodating of our young family. The food was simple and tasty, enjoyed all the more... More

Situated on the central section of the harbour in Saint Martin de Re, this little bistro is fantastic. Food is unfussy and excellent. Staff work hard to ensure things go reasonably smoothly. It doesn't always work but that just adds to the atmosphere. The day we eat, for example, a passing van knocked out a section of one of the... More

Good service and excellent food. No high chairs if you are thinking of taking little ones. Menus are on the wall and in French (as you would expect).

Excellent food, not overly complicated, just fresh and prepared perfectly, traveled through France for the past week & this has been the best meal so far, service was excellent also with a full house and a line of people out the door waiting staff were efficient and observant. Good value also!

We forgot about the bistrot closing on a Thursday which is when we intended to visit and have their epic Côte de Boeuf so had to make do with a lighter lunch. A smoked fish and mixed dry cured ham platters, good bread, bottle of rose and a bill of €50. A enjoyable way to spend an hour or two.

Have been eating here for eight years now and the secret to this restaurants success is simplicity. No set menus, just a few entrees a few plats and a couple of daily specials. It is very popular and it does not take reservations so I would advise to get there around 7 to get a table. Staff are very friendly... More

This place always seems busy but I don't really understand why other than the good location. The food is average and expensive for what it is. The service was good though. I'm so uninspired by this place I can't even be bothered to write a long review. It's not that it is dreadful just not at all special.
