Lovely restaurant

I have visited Bistro on two occasions. I am very fortunate that my daughter lives a two minute walk away. The restaurant was very busy on both occasions and understandably so. The food was outstanding and the staff very friendly and welcoming.

We have eaten at Biztro several times and have always had a good meal. The menu is changed on a regular basis and always has a good selection of dishes to choose from. The wine list is sensibly priced and has a good selection. Service is friendly and efficient. An excellent place to go to for an evening meal.

Biz (the owner) agreed to lay on a wedding breakfast buffet for our family and friends to celebrate our daughter's wedding. The food was fantastic and the service second to none. We had such a happy time and I couldn't recommend the Biztro more highly.

Once again a fab meal with attentive staff. We booked on a 'steak night' and we weren't disappointed. We usually forego starters as the puddings are delicious and very filling. Looking forward to trying the Sunday lunch this weekend. Definitely recommend booking as it is always full when we visit.

The restaurant is normally open Tuesday to Saturday evenings only, but this was a special lunchtime event. We were well looked after, and were served very tasty sandwiches and cakes. The evening menu is of course the full range of dishes. Having discovered this place, I shall certainly return one evening to sample the full menu. It is a small... More

Great variety and selection in all courses, including traditional English dishes, and those more Continental style. The pastas were so good. Warm and cozy atmosphere, quick and friendly service.

We booked for a family birthday meal, there was four of us, would highly recommend to book as it is small but worth it. We all had starters, the goats cheese and fig salad was absolutely delicious, the smoked mackerel pate, again was delicious and the cream cheese and chilli dip was great too. All served with a smile and... More

Great, family run local restaurant. One of our favourites! :-) It's popular though so best to book (something that we often forget to do and leave disappointed!).

This is a small restaurant in the lovely village of Bampton (otherwise known as Downton village from the tv series). Strolling through the streets looking for somewhere to eat before going home we came across Biztro. It was very early and we had the place almost to ourselves. We were looked after by Emma, and nothing was too much trouble... More
