We picked this place based on the reviews and it absolutely lived up to previous reviews. Lovely friendly welcome, great choice of pre dinner drinks suggested, great food and lovely relaxed atmosphere. Suitable for couples or a group of friends.

Lovely little bistro, good menu and friendly service. Advisable to book as it fills up quickly. Only reason we didn't give it 5 stars was that the bread rolls had been microwaved and were chewy but everything else was first class.

Various places to eat in Lynmouth which cater for everyone and the Bistro is well worth a visit for lunch or dinner. Service, quality and range of dishes from seafood to steaks is very good and the restaurant has a warm and very welcoming atmosphere.
