“Restaurant Bar Bistro Joseph”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2012

Bar Bistro Joseph accommodated our large group of +/- 50 people and offered a set-menu for us.
All food was very good considering the large group. Desert was a bit of a let down and I was expecting more, the menu listed it as "Grand Desert", however the portion did not seem large enough for our group. Service was ok, and I think there were one or 2 confused drink orders, however, everyone was happy at the end of the night.

“Fab food.........service was a little slow”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2012

The food here was excellent.Sat outside in the covered area on a hot evening with a group and it was lovely. We ordered and it took quite a while for the starters to arrive but when they did they were excellent.......and the same can be said for the main courses and the sweets........all in all a great visit

“Great food and friendly service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2012

I have eaten here a number of times over the last year or so and never had a bad meal. The venison was amazing and the carpaccio is to die for. Thoroughly recommended.

“Food ok, service slow!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2012

I go there quite often with colleagues after work, the food is ok (nothing memorable, though!), the service can be unbearably slow if the restaurant is packed. Ok for a (quick, sometimes!) bite after work! Greek bd italian alternatives right around the corner.
