We went for lunch and we were all very happy with our meals. The restaurant was clean with professional attentive staff. The atmosphere was sophisticated without being fussy or pretentious. A welcome change from the standard fare.

Got the early for a light meal. No reservations and were seated in a minute. Staff was trained in detail about how to treat guests-they were great. We shared mussels, Risotto with pesto and salmon, salad, ginger cake with rum sauce-everything was wonderful to taste. Will return when in the area

I am celiac and I was looking for a place in Truro that served gluten free food. Bistro 22 was absolutely excellent. I had a grilled smoked salmon sandwich and it was one of the best gluten free sandwiches I've ever had. The smoked salmon was divine and the combination of flavours was simply delicious. The bread was superb, really... More

Bistro 22 is fairly small, bright, airy and cozy as well. The menu offers light fare for lunch - soup, salad, panini. Dinner in the evening. They have a variety of vegetable, meat and seafood offerings. Something for vegetarians too and they even can accommodate a vegan for many of the dishes. Fresh and well-prepared ingredients, friendly staff and a... More

I have eaten here 4 times, 3 of those were lunches and they were fabulous! Wonderfully tasty, filling, reasonably priced and great service. The last time I ate here it was for supper. The poor waitress was great but over worked as she was the only one on. The food was okay but left me wanting more and lacked the... More

This is the best coconut cream pie I've ever had. You'll love it! The pastry is home made, light and flaky.

This is a very small restaurant but has a high standard of food. My opinion is that it is the best value in the town of Truro ( if you are out for a 4to 5 star meal ). They are licensed to serve alcohol
