“Excellent food but too expensive for Mongolians and for us”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2013

We ate there only one evening. Looks like luxury place for Mongolian rich people. Owner of our hostel is a good friend of the owner of this place, Monsieur Pierre. Recommend it for those who visit Ulanbator with business trip or wedding honeymoon. For us it was a good surprise to hear our French language everywhere inside and drink cheap French wine :) Prices are biting lol

“Excellent decor and beefsteak”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2013

Le Bistro is a classy French restaurant. The owner, his wife and staff are friendly. I highly recommend the beefsteak. None better in Ulaanbaatar! Check out some wonderful French delicacies on the dessert menu. Can listen to live jazz upon occasion. Provides a pleasant outdoor experience in the summer.
