“Vegan”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2013

My parents are regular eaters at grb. I joined them one evening, and as a vegan i was made most welcome, they checked meal ingredients and without asking they even created a vegan sauce for my dish (deep fried broccoli if i recall rightly) for when it was brought out! I felt very comfortable eating there.

“Great eating”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2013

Went here for lunch and dinner during a stay in Guernsey, food was excellent and the staff helpful and knowledgable. Had probably one of the best Fillet steaks I have EVER! eaten anywhere with scallops for a fantastic Surf and Turf. The evening meal we had was also very good, Whitebait to start and Dover Sole for main, cooked really well. So a perfect result all round,my wife was the only disappointed one ,wanting Lobster that wasn't available that day. This is not an inexpensive restaurant but to us it was worth it.

“Good food in a great location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2013

We visited the Bistro during October. The service was good. The venue clean and inviting. The food as normal for this venue, great. We have been returning to Guernsey as a family and on business for over 40 years. I can't say that we have visited this eatery for all that length of time, but every time we have visited, and friends that have been recommended by us, have always said that if you are in this part of Guernsey (And even if you are not) this is the place to go.Might be worth a quick phone call for a reservation during the high Summer months.

“On the downhill slope”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2013

I have eaten here on several occasions in the past and would have given it 4 stars. Unfortunately this is no longer so. They closed down for a few weeks this summer to redecorate. They redecorated the menu prices along with the the walls. Unfortunately, the the quality and service went down hill as the paint went up. Having once made this Bistro a special appointment in my diary. Its now one I will give a miss.

“Not what we expected-Expensive”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2013

We had heard so many good reports about this restaurant but sad to say it did not live up to expectations.
Our child's meal was covered in salt which we had to rub off.
The steaks were tasty but again far too much salt was used here.
The drinks, small glasses of soft drink, full of ice and very expensive.
It may be a nice location in the Summer evenings where you can watch the sun go down, but there are lots of places with nicer, less expensive, and far tastier food.
