“Clean French Cooking”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2014

We celebrated New Year's Eve at Le Bistro after 1 wk in Thailand. We wanted decent wine and Foie Gras. The young French chef was extremely personable and came talked with us a few times during the dinner. The restaurant does have a nice atmosphere to it. The food was very traditional classic French cooking which I was suprised to see the Chef stayed true to his roots with one exception which I thought was great..melon and ginger sobert. I thought it was execellent and creative. Speakng of creative, you will not find it here but you will find excellent clean french food. The price was reasonable not cheap.

I have to say services were a bit poor despite a lot of staff running around. Clearly, they do not have formal training (ie the toothpick and candies came before someone would ask us if we wanted coffee or we had not asked for the bills). This is very typical in many restaurants in Asia

Do give it try if you are tired of eating Thai food.

“Good Food but better make early booking”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2014

Having dinner on 26 Dec night at 6pm while we were arranged to sit outside as we only booked at 5pm. The meal is okay while it is totally affected by the environment. Sitting outside while in the main road and many car, many fly. Need go buy medicine after the meal. Actually there is less than 2 table during the meal and i have no idea why we can't sit inside. So we do not turn back on next day for lunch. While i would still recommend traveler visit there as the price is very attractive that even cheaper the one i tried in pattaya.

“Making New Year's Eve a special occasion”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2013

Le Bistro has the personal touch with the French chef personally greeting and explaining the menu to all the guests. The food was outstanding - escargot, mushroom soup, onion tart, braised beef and venison were all perfectly cooked and seasoned. The Irish coffee was also an excellent finish to a truly fine meal. The service was faultless. We felt the evening was very good value for money.

“Real French”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2013

Small and intimate French restaurant close to the center of Hua Hin.The friendly staff takes all the time to let you feel comfortable and is very competent. The food is of excellent quality . Although the menu card offers a small number of dishes, the selection is quite interesting. Moreover the weekly specials can be recommended without exception. I have visited Le Bistro twice in one week and both times left us completely satisfied.
The friendly cook/owner usually takes the order at the table with sufficient clarification. Without hesitation this restaurant can be recommended to the "connaisseur".

“Magnificent meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2013 via mobile

Le Bistro was tops for our Christmas Eve dinner. The service, food and wine were all the best Hua Hin has to offer. The chef is really on his game. It is likely the most expensive restaurant in town, but worth the splurge for an evening of feeling special.
