“Excellence”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2014

The Pier Bistro is in my experience an excellent place to enjoy breakfast, lunch or dinner. We recently had a lovely time at their Burns night, excellent food and warm atmosphere. We have visited on several occasions and the food is always varied, the staff very welcoming and friendly, service is second to none. If you want food that tastes that bit different and prepared and presented in a wonderful way....this is the place to visit.

“Good lunch ”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2014

We visited on a very busy Sunday. Told we would wait 10 minutes for a table which was fine. Seated at a larger table with another couple on it- no problem for us as they asked in advance.

The service was slow and we had to get the attention of the waiter to order. However once ordered out drinks and food arrived swiftly.

She the food arrived it was very tasty, hot and looked presentable. We both had paninis and a portion of chips.

Would definitely return, but perhaps would book in advance!

“Nice food friendly service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2014

Went to the bistro for lunch and the food and service was good! Comfortable too. Had the fish and chips and it was very good, my girlfriend had the baked potato with humus and sun dried tomato and she said hers was good too. Would definitely go back

“Excellent Birthday Meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2014

Went in here last Friday for the first time and had a great night. Food was lovely and fresh. Service was fantastic and warm. Atmosphere was great. Good selection of drinks, I had a nice bottle of wine with my girlfriend and a Kracken rum and coke whilst we waited for our taxi home. Will definitely be back. We were in for our friends birthday and there was a large party of us and this did not impact on the service or quality at all.
