Ate here with family (2+2 boys) fantastic food, fully booked restaurant. Turning people away without a reservation. Boys aged 5&8 with no dedicated kids menu but a main meal was cooked to their liking and halved between them so very accommodating. Would recommend.

My wife and I ate here at the suggestion of our hotel, and we were extremely pleased with the recommendation. The fish dishes were especially good. The creme brulee was perfectly executed and a very generous portion.

Sorry, you'll have to check with bistro. I've never been in November so don't know if they're open. They don't open lunchtime I'm pretty sure. I don't book myself - I just turn up when they first open: 7 to 7:30pm.
